Religion in Video Games and a thank you to Mass Effect Andromeda

In May 2017,  a member of ScaryGranules partook in an interview with well known gaming magazine for their special issue focusing on the Women in Games Awards, which they were nominated in a category.

But while Barcraft is a well known event organised community focused crowd, in terms of a fixed venue, Vienna offers us mainly and currently, only…
