This week on The Electronic Wireless Show podcast our interest was piqued by new trailers for a Jesus simulator and a politics in hell strategy game. We ask ourselves: why are there so many hell-themed games and so few heavenly ones? Is it blasphemy? What would our pitch for a game set in heaven be? (Spoilers for that last one: there's a lot of admin involved). We also chat about what we've been playing this week, and Nate orchestrates a mini-game pitchathon that goes at least somewhat off the rails.
You can listen above, or on on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, or Pocket Casts. You can find the RSS feed here, and you can discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated room for podcast chat.

We record on Tuesdays so some things might be out of date when we talk about them (although probably not this time).
- I Am Jesus Christ is a literal God sim, with a new trailer demonstrating first-person miracles
- We also got a new gameplay trailer for Solium Infernum. Hell is other people, wakka wakka!
- Some of the hell games we mention: Metal Hellsinger, Diablo, Dungeon Keeper, Afterlife, and Hades.
