21st-Century Armageddon: Why Nuclear Weapons are Too Important NOT to Play With

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

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.
