Chain World -- Religion or Holy War? Jason Rohrer's "Chain World" was the overwhelming audience favorite at the 2011 Game Design Challenge. This year's challenge was Bigger Than Jesus: games as religion. Rohrer's winning creation is a mod of Minecraft that exists on a single USB drive and is to be played by one person at a time who then passes it on to the next player without speaking of the game. The idea is to explore how human actions in a game world accrete into something very like a mythology. At the game's debut, Rohrer handed over the USB, more or less at random, to Jia Ji. He would be Chain World Player Two. And that's where the trouble began.
