The folks at Something Awful photoshopped a bunch of “Religious Games that you’d actually want to play“:
Lol. Love it. I would play hooky from work one day to sit home and indulge in those any day of the week.
That should be Grand Theft Ass, where Jesus tells the disciples to steal a donkey for him to ride into Jerusalem.*
*Matthew 31:1-7 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+21%3A1-7&version=NIV
Oh, I thought they’d mean stuff like From Dust and Black & White. Black & White was an interesting, if somewhat poorly-executed concept.
But these are good too. Good photoshops.
Hey, I loved Black and White. I’d still play it if it weren’t for copy protection and a few glitches.
Dominions 3 is really good, if a bit absurdly complicated. It’s a strategy game where God ran off somewhere, and now every monster, magical being, totem, and others are taking over nations and starting a genocidal war for the throne. It’s also a surefire way to know that you’re a terrible person as you sacrifice virgins, make pacts with demons, raise the dead, plunge the world into endless winter, speed up aging, or extinguish the sun.
There’s always everyone’s favorite biblical story told in “The Binding of Isaac” from the creator of Super Meat Boy. Definitely worth a play-through. It doesn’t take itself seriously at all.
Slightly OT, but I’ve been thinking you could do a pretty good Western using lots of the creepiest quotes you can find from the bible…I also imagine an Old West “wanted” poster with Jesus’ face on it and a caption saying “Horse thief”, quoting that passage from Matthew…
I love “sonic the agnostic”!
