Since childhood, Jim has suffered from a terrifying form of psychosis. In 2017, a game called Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice helped him come to terms with it. Jim tells us his story and meets with the game's developers: actor Melina Juergens and director Tameem Antoniades.
Aoife Wilson and Julia Hardy are best mates who love video games and have worked in the industry for years. They find the most shocking, moving and inspiring true stories about how gaming changed people’s lives forever. Join them to hear about the guy who works for NASA because of a game, the couple who fell in love on an MMORPG, the man who turned his escape from civil war into a video game and the gamers who caught a killer in real time.
