Christian video games

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Christian video games refer to Christian-themed computer and video games. The first Christian video games were made in the late 1980s for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) by Wisdom Tree and now are made by many different developers. Most of these developers meet yearly at the "Christian Games Developers Conference" and build support through the "Christian Games Developers Foundation".

History

Starting in the late 1980's the unlicensed game developer Color Dreams using the name of Wisdom Tree, developed the first Christian video game for the NES, called Bible Adventures which featured Bible accounts such as Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, and David and Goliath.

Other Christian games released for the NES by Wisdom Tree include Exodus, King of Kings, Bible Buffet, and Spiritual Warfare. Many of these games were also released on the Sega Genesis or Game Boy systems.

The only Christian game released for the SNES is the game Super Noah's Ark 3D, which is based on the Wolfenstein 3D engine and featured the player trying to calm animals on his ark by pelting them with sleep-inducing fruit.

During the 2000's, Christian games re-emerged onto the scene. Heaven Bound is a Christian-themed game that was released on the PC. Catechumen and Ominous Horizons, Christian First Person Shooters, were released and sold over 500,000 copies together.

Inkvisitor is a Christian-themed PC game that takes the player through the chaotic times of Inquisition.

Crave Entertainment released the first games based on the Bible for Playstation 2, Xbox, and Game Boy Advance, The Bible Game. They have also recently released the first Veggietales video games for the Playstation 2 and Game Boy Advance.

Breakthrough Gaming is also one of the only Christian video game companies that have released multiple games using original characters, such as ZJ the Ball, Zippy the Circle, Forgiveness: The First Chapter, and Nik & Kit.

Many Christian game developers have come together to form the Association Of Christian Entertainment.
