After enjoying Shadow Complex I've decided to do some research on this Orson Scott Card chap.
So basically he's a crazy Republican who believes same sex marriage to be a "devastating social experiment". And then says giving gay people the right to be married is the end of democracy in America. He also doesn't believe in global warming, supported Goerge W Bush's administration and supported John McCain in the last presidential election. So, in Shadow Complex you could very well be fighting against the evil forces of Barrak Obama?
Still, it's a good game, but the reports that some of the developers at Chair share his views is a little worrying.
