I have heard a little about this game from commercials and such, but I have also head some negative things as well, especially from different churches and such.

Anyone heard of it? Anyone played it? It sounds kind of neat, but some question its message.

Anyone?

It looks interesting. I REALLY didn't care for the books (or their...questionable at best versions of theology), but it's an interesting idea for a game. Still, it worries me that they skirt a whole lot of questions on their "about the game" page, especially this one:

Are guns used by Christians against non-Christians? Why or why not?
The storyline in the game begins just after the Rapture has occurred – when all adult Christians, all infants, and many children were instantly swept home to Heaven and off the Earth by God. The remaining population – those who were left behind – are then poised to make a decision at some point. They cannot remain neutral. Their choice is to either join the AntiChrist – which is an imposturous one world government seeking peace for all of mankind, or they may join the Tribulation Force – which seeks to expose the truth and defend themselves against the forces of the AntiChrist.


....read that a few times. Does it in ANY way answer the question asked?
I support the separation of Church and Hate.

Personally I think this game is just a bad idea, and I'm one who agrees with much of the theology behind it (after doing my own research and study into it).

i think it's hard to make blatantly christian games i would love to see someone take the approach c.s. lewis did with narnia, written by a christian , with Christian references, but not neccassiarly under the Christian label.
