Episode 13 — REEF

Billy Joe Cain is back at it again. And this time, it is the finale.

BJC was the first interview I conducted for the show and it was dynamic because he had a lot of personal experiences to share with me throughout his long relationship with games.

I’m excited that I get to finally showcase the Radical Empathy Education Foundation, BJC’s foray into virtual reality game development that serves a greater purpose. Trapped: A VR Detective Story is a great implementation of the noir genre that puts players in the thick of the mystery in case that involves the realities of the world of human trafficking and how it is right under our noses.

I conducted this interview in July 2017, so at the time Trapped was still under development. Since that time, the game has been completed and is ready to be implemented in schools, community centers, and anywhere and with anyone who is interested in spreading awareness about human trafficking.
