Really enjoyed this article.
So, the thought is that Christian video games are either edutainment or just really bad? Yet there are games like ReElise, That Dragon Cancer, and Heroes Of Issachar… Why is it that Christian games are dismissed? Is it possible to have a strong message/story and fun gameplay?
This week I’ve come across two “Christian Video Games” trying to raise funding via Kickstarter.
The first campaign is titled “Judeo-Christian Video Game – Moral & Fun – Call of Abraham.” Which describes itself as:
A spiritually-enriching, action-packed, FUN Judeo-Christian role-playing video game you can be proud to give to your loved ones!
The second is “Grow Your Congregation (Web Based Game),” and its description is:
We would like to see an addictive Faith inspired game that could be compared to Mrmine.com or Cookie Clickers.
Neither of these projects is going to reach their funding targets, without a bona fide miracle.
The interesting thing to me, reading these campaigns, is how open and transparent they are about the aspirations of a Christian Video Game developer. A Christian Video Game is made to feed the pride of Christians (i.e. American Evangelicals) in their sub-culture / ghetto.
