Exodus is an illustrated point-and-click game created in conjunction with Cloaked Games Studios for my senior project for my Bachelor’s degree in Illustration.
The genre of fantasy is inextricably tied to religion and spirituality. No fantasy has ever successfully eschewed the supernatural—in fact, the more that magic is explained in a naturalistic light, the less magical that it is. The fantasy genre depends on spirituality, and its goals are spiritual.
We may believe that something exists outside of this world, but the goal of fantasy is to pull it out of the pages of some dry philosophical treatise and make it into something that people can feel and desire. Since God Himself is mysterious and unknowable, it is my opinion that any work of art which evokes that distinctive pain of longing for the mysterious and unknowable has done something important for the soul.
