First video game about Jesus launches on Facebook

Lightside Games is venturing into historic territory by creating the first-ever video game based on the life of Jesus.  Brent Dusing, the founder and CEO of Lightside Games, said that the new game, “The Journey of Jesus: The Calling,” will give people an opportunity to experience the life of Jesus firsthand.  He hopes that the new game on the life of Jesus will bring the Gospel to those who might not otherwise be exposed to it.

The game follows the life of Christ during his public ministry from the point of view of a character whose name is pulled from the user’s Facebook profile. Players collect items and trade them with their Facebook friends to progress through Christ’s mission.  By completing a series of tasks and challenges while interacting with the Apostles, other players and Christ, the user is able to witness Christ’s public ministry and participate in his mission.
