“I lost my mother at 23, she was too young. When something happens, you feel a combination of anger, resentment, sadness, and guilt. Feelings of guilt because you feel like you should have done more. I tried to incorporate all of this into the character of the Tarot.’’ Says Tod.
What really impressed Fennell about the game was how he spent his time researching this complex material. The ability to show all these deeper layers. You know the frames.
