This came across the news the other day. Apparently there is a company about to release a multi-player video game that allows players to witness and reenact the stories of the Bible. Sound like something that you want to buy for little Johnny or Mary so they can really experience the world of the Bible? Think again. This is how it was described on one gaming site.
If you've ever read all the rape, genocide and deep-seated racism in The Bible and thought to yourself, "Man, that sounds like my kind of world," then this is the game for you! The Bible Online allows players to "slip into the role of Abraham and his descendants and have the opportunity to reenact and witness the incidents of their times."
The game is going to be split into chapters with The Heroes being the first released. The basic setup is that of an MMO strategy game, where players control their own tribe, build a city, and naturally wage war in the name of God. It won't be a case of holding onto territory, however, as the ultimate goal is leading one's band of merry savages into the promised land.
