Jesus Christ, now they’ve made him a video-game character

First there was Diablo III, the newest installment of a game series built around battles with demonic creatures. Now comes Journey of Jesus: The Calling. Follow video-game Jesus as he overcomes obstacles, battles the era’s politics, experiences the religious landscape, history and everyday life of ancient Israel. Just like Diablo III – only the opposite. “Both games immerse the player, and you are what you eat,” said Brent Dusing, CEO of Lightside games. “While one game goes one direction, Journey of Jesus: The Calling players walk in the Messiah’s steps, in an authentic experience of Israel in Christ’s time.” Journey of Jesus: The Calling is an online game with high-quality graphics, music, game play and the latest social features. New players log on to Facebook and type Journey of Jesus: The Calling into the search bar. Following simple registration steps, at no cost, players travel back in time to the days of Jesus.
