Moving Pixels Podcast: Hinduism and Buddhism Meet Science Fiction in 'Cradle'
Cradle merges science and religion in a tiny yurt in Mongolia.
This week we consider the multicultural mash up in this indie from last year, a game that includes concerns about robots and body augmentation alongside passages from The Tibetan Book of the Dead.
Cradle asks questions about the soul, the body, and the relationship between those two things and advanced technology. In the podcast, we discuss its concern with incarnation and reincarnation in a culture in which science and reason are ascendant.
