Christian Editions of Classic Games

Postby ColtsFan76 on Sat Jun 17, 2006 4:06 pm

Just picked up the official Bible version of Outburst and Guesstures. Apparently, Cactus games (a producer of Christian games) got the rights from Hasbro to produce these games. Scategories is another one they got the rights to. Anyone else know of any secular games that now have Christian versions?

There's been a Bibleopoly for awhile now, I think.

hmm... interesting. id never thought of that.

my old roommate and i did discuss how awesome it would be to play a Biblical video game, be able to play different times in the Bible (but not as main characters, almost as if you were there).

i think it would be a great way to learn. could you imagine helping find materials for the ark of the covenant. maybe thats just me :)

Unfortunately, there's never been (to my knowledge) a decent overtly Christian video game. There was, however, a very good user made campaign for the first Age of Empires game about the life of David.

Looks like the Cactus Game Design has a few Biblical video games. Not sure how much fun they would be. Looks like it is more "Christian approved" stuff than actual Biblical events.
