Hymn "What a 'Friend' We Have in Jesus" accepts novel meaning on May 15 with the launching of a game on the globe's most popular social networking site, Facebook.
Lightside Games has introduced Journey of Jesus: The Calling this Tuesday, permitting those who log on via Facebook to "walk in the Messiah's footsteps, in a real experience of Israel in Christ's time," the company’s release said this.
Not to be outdone by heaven, the devil gets his own spot in the public interest with "Diablo III," another game hit web on the same day. That game was too popular it jammed the servers.
Lightside CEO Brent Dusing said, "Both games immerse the player, and you are what you eat. Players want a game that's more than a game; we know that well."
A trailer of the game on the video-sharing internet site, YouTube, presents cartoonish depictions of key biblical details of Jesus' life-time, comprising his 40 days in the barren region accompanied by temptation by the evil spirit, healing the blind, casting money changers out of the place of worship and his ultimate crucifixion.
It's set to a conventionalized edition of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel."
At this time, remarks have been disabled for the video.
Lightside Games brings up one of its primary religious social media games, "Journey of Moses," with their enthusiasm for rolling out the novel program that is free to play.
