Pascal's Wager

by Doug Egan profile


About the Story

"The original Pascal's Wager was essentially a cost/benefit analysis of religious faith. However, Blaise Pascal (a 17th century Catholic) disregarded the possible existence of non-Christian Gods. This game examines the consequences of Pascal's Wager on the player character's simulated life, if one of several other Gods occupies the high seat of judgement.

The game is medium length, with a number of basic puzzles integrated into the story. Though it has a philosophical theme, my writing style is on the lighter side."
