Life Without God : An Interview with Tim Prowse (Photo by H.koppdelaney) Tim Prowse was a United Methodist pastor for almost 20 years, serving churches in Missouri and Indiana. Tim earned a B.A. from East Texas Baptist University, a Master of Divinity (M.Div) from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri, and a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min) from Chicago Theological Seminary.

Miegakure is a puzzle-platforming game that lets you explore and interact with a four-dimensional world.

Your ability to move in the fourth dimensions in addition to the usual three allows you to perform miraculous feats like seeing inside closed buildings, walking through walls, stealing objects from closed containers, binding two separate rings without breaking them, etc... These actual consequences of the mathematical formulation of 4D space have been thought about for more than a century (in the 1884 novella Flatland for example) but it is the first time anyone can actually perform them, thanks to the video game medium. Our world is three-dimensional: width, depth, and height. In this case the fourth dimension is not time. Is there a demo? Miegakure TRAILER
