Oh wow. This is deep and complex. What inspired you to make this?

I’ve been on a bit of a cultish documentary binge as of late. The image I used is actually from Wild Wild Country, which is one of the docs I’ve been watching. The content of that series doesn’t really match up with my draft at all, but I thought the image fit.

However, cults don’t make money. Religions do.

Wow, I liked the Litterateur way you put the truth forth.

The game I am sure is going to be a thriller. A Niche that has a wide reach.

Best of luck.
