Making It Work: God and Your Work

Oct 11, 2021

Does spiritual development have to be dull? Or can growing with God be more like a game? Our guest today, Xalavier Nelson Junior, is a BAFTA-nominated narrative director and video game developer. He creates video games that communicate spiritual truths in places where they’re perhaps least expected. People playing games such as Hypnospace Outlaw or Can Androids Pray, or any number of the many games Xalavier has worked on, find themselves connecting with their shared humanity and examining the big questions of life, even as they solve puzzles in a futuristic universe inhabited by robots. We talk to Xalavier about how games including his latest release: An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, can connect us to God’s truth, and to each other.
