Max Payne 3 isn’t the only notable interactive entertainment being released today. Christian company Lightside Games — their logo stylizes the “t” to look like a cross — announced this morning that their latest endeavor, Journey of Jesus: The Calling, has officially hit Facebook. They’re calling this diversion “the first-ever video game based on Jesus.”
In Journey of Jesus, players search for articles and artifacts as they explore a colorful, cartoony version of biblical Israel. The company plans to release new chapters, “ideas and information and challenges” each week in order to hold player interest. This game is similar to Lightside’s Journey of Moses, an ancient Egyptian adventure that attracts 70,000 monthly users, according to Facebook; Lightside says Moses has drawn over two million players since lauching last summer.
