The Source - An Interview With the Aussie Devs Daring to Make a Game...

Australian-based indie studio Elevator Entertainment recently revealed plans to develop The Source, a videogame satirically themed around the doctrine of the controversial Church of Scientology --a sensitive topic that most of the entertainment industry steer well clear of for fear of litigation or worse.

Elevator hope to fund the game's development via crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, and most the development crew wish to remain anonymous. We hit the team up with a few questions to find out more about this curious project.
Like all great things that you see in the media, Scientology has a healthy presence in the public sphere. We see it referenced in TV shows, it is the subject of news reports, etc. We feel parody is a great opportunity to bring in humour into projects and break the ice amongst all the other serious stuff you here about. Having stumbled onto the topic over a nostalgic game on the Super Nintendo, we couldn't help but see how the story of Scientology could be mistaken for a game. If someone hadn’t already done it- we didn’t want to miss the opportunity for a bit of fun!
Read on for the full interview. Then whether you want to pledge your support, evaluate their engrams, or curse them with the wrath of Xenu, head over to indiegogo for more details.

I think I will back this. Sounds like it'd be fun.

sounds like the kind of thing a 15 year old would 'make' a game about...

I don't know why you'd bother parodying something that is a joke.

I already get lots of laughs from Scientology already.
