Can games question colonial lies about the Aztecs?

Today on the HGN YouTube channel, and as part of the Network’s current theme of (Post)Colonialism, we are featuring an interview between Javier Rayón (writer and director of Dream of Darkness) and Tlaxcalteca and historian Fabiola Carrillo.

The interview explores ways in which historians and the games industry can collaborate to address longstanding problems of historical misrepresentation and colonial myths, particularly in relation to the Spanish-Mexica encounter and Aztec mythology.
