What do you think of when you hear “nuclear weapons”? Action movies? Spy films? Maybe you think about history, and how nukes are a bygone issue. Or maybe you just don’t think about them at all. In this session, Paul Carroll of the N Square collaborative will discuss how current games treat nuclear catastrophe as a backdrop to narrative, summarize the current realities of the world’s nuclear weapons status, and how with their new game Epic Orphan will be more forward-thinking on how this subject is being treated.
