Humans of Gaming 163 | Richard Rouse III of The Church in the Darkness Returns


About This Episode

Richard Rouse III returns to talk about life after his indie release, The Church in the Darkness. Being an indie developer comes with a different cycle of development, marketing, and patching that is normally separated in larger studios leaving Richard little time to breathe. Drew and Chris also ask if producing a game about a religious cult has had any kind of transformative effect on his way of thinking or perception of groups of any kind such as Christians or even militant vegetarians.
