In this talk, you will discover update on an ambitious text-based game Peter has been making. Inspired by the work of the late René Girard, the renowned philosopher of social science, Peter is aiming to create a simulation-driven world in which the themes of contagious violence and the practice of scapegoating are drawn out.
The game is being implemented in ClojureScript for maximum reach, but the talk will mostly focus on the aims of the game and the extent to which ClojureScript is aiding or frustrating those goals.
