I'd never written a game, so thought I would try something as simple as possible just to start to understand how it is done. It just so happened that the Running of the Bulls was on in Spain the following week, so there you have the theme. If you don't know what the running of the bulls is, it's a stupid event where crowds of people, including lots of drunk tourists, harass bulls and then kill them once the event is over.
I had been vegan for a few years, done some volunteering for Animal Liberation Queensland, and read some of Peter Singer's other works before I finally read his classic Animal Liberation.
I didn't really see why I needed to read it, after all, I was vegan and very much believed in Animal Liberation. As fate would have it I was given two copies of the book in the same week, and although a sceptic I believe in fate just enough not to tempt very obvious expressions of its desires so I had little choice but to start reading.
