What's So Cool About Being a Bad Christian?
A downloadable game
What’s So Cool About Being a Bad Christian is a roleplaying game about “bad christians” with secret sins going through crises of faith as they try to make sense of what they believe in and make a decision as to where they stand; seeking the answer to the question: Will you still choose to believe at the end of the day?
You may play this game alone or with 3-4 other friends.
The intention of this game is not to paint the church as a place of violence and abuse (although it can definitely be one) but rather to explore the idea of faith during times of crises and what we do about it. This is by no means a perfect game nor does it claim to represent the experiences of all those who choose to believe in Christ.
This game contains themes of Christianity-related trauma, condemnation, self-hatred, depression, crises of faith, sexual assault, gaslighting, and other things that come with wanting to believe that there’s somebody bigger than yourself, that that somebody cares, and that you’ll go to heaven one day if you try your best to follow them.
