Humans of Gaming 79 | Rand Miller and The Reassurance in Suffering


About This Episode

Reaching back into our archives, we present our first episode from January 5, 2017 featuring Rand Miller of Cyan Worlds. PC gamers will recognize the name as one half of the creative founders of MYST, one of the most influential games developed. An avid church goer, Rand talks with Drew Dixon and M Joshua about the change of view that happens when one suddenly finds 1 million dollars in the bank and how age and perspective has affected his faith and outlook on life.
