The State of Games, Episode 4 – The One About the 7 Deadly Sins
The State of Games, Episode 4 is good to go! We may be playing around a tiny bit with the format this week, but we’re still here to talk about some subtle controversies; only this time, we’re inviting all of you to look deep inside your gaming souls and seek out the sin within!
So yeah, The Road to Canterbury is based on Chaucer’s poem, The Canterbury Tales. Dear readers and listeners, you can get a sneak preview of the box cover art for this upcoming game and learn a bit more about Alf and his many passions in the in-depth Dice Hate Me interview over here. Also mentioned in the podcast is Hieronymous Bosch’s famous painting The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things, a sample of which can be seen on the right. To learn exactly what that has to do with The Road To Canterbury – well, you’re just going to have to listen to the podcast!
And, while we’re mentioning Alf and his projects, be sure not to miss the Dice Hate Me review of the delightfully whimsical Trollhalla.
