Raskulls Developer Wants YOU to Believe

1 min read


Philosopher Bertrand Russell questioned the existence of a higher spiritual being – and attempted to remove the burden of proof on the sceptic when it came to proving or disproving religion – through the employment of a celestial teapot. Much like the invisible Pink Unicorn and the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Russell’s celestial teapot is still used today in discussions about the existence of God(s).

We’re not here to wax philosophical or existential though, we’re here top talk about games! Raskulls Developer Halfbrick is questioning your faith in warm-beverage porcelain-ware receptacles – and inviting you to assert your belief on their site. It seems odd that an upcoming XBLA game, said to be the unholy union of Mario Kart, Castle Crashers and Bomberman would use philosophy for marketing purposes.

The question though remains :

Do you believe in the Teapot?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
