The digital world of Lucifer Within Us offers a unique spiritual paradigm in which to explore the human experience. Imagine if an ancient culture developed while having access to information technology, and therefore its religion incorporates entities that exist in digital space. The Problem of Evil and theodicy are endlessly fascinating topics for the creative director Jongwoo, and form the thematic core for the game’s crimes and characters. He draws upon certain concepts like sin, daemons and possession to explore an alternate reality in which technological advancement did not result in a materialist culture, but became integrated into spiritualist beliefs. Lucifer Within Us is a world in which daemons truly exist and drive people to act on their darkest desires. It’s a statement about exploring our cultural obsession with maintaining an artificially constructed image rather than an authentic expression of our true selves.
