Here on PowerupGaming we’re looking at Christmas games, in-game updates, and DLC for the month of December. In today’s article we’re looking at a game that is genuinely called I am Jesus Christ, which is available for wishlisting on Steam right now. I saw the game and I was a little sceptical about covering it, mostly because of what some Christians might think of it, but I think that there’s nothing more appropriate to write about for a Christmas article series than the core reason for the holiday’s existence. Check out the trailer for the game below, and read on for some details.
Honestly I’m quite confused about what this game actually is. It seems to walk players through significant points in the life of Jesus, telling the stores through the medium of games, with players seeing the miracles, and performing them in a way, through Jesus’ eyes.
In terms of Christmas content, I don’t know that the game is going to be out for this Christmas, but it does seem very appropriate doesn’t it? As the first full Christmas game, of sorts, that I’ve covered in this article series I think it’s a nice change to see a game that’s probably going to take a more serious approach to biblical stories.
Right now there’s a lot of in-game content and DLC that’s themed around Christmas for many games on the market. This is a game that I don’t see selling super well, but it’s an important one because of the audience that it’s intended to reach. Furthermore, it’s an accessible way for those curious about Christianity to learn a little more about it through something they can interact with in a way that they feel comfortable. I think this is going to be an interesting one when it finally launches. We’ll keep you updated on its development when it comes closer to launch.
If you fancy reading about more Christmas gaming content, we’ve covered Feastivus in Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, Christmas pyjamas in Two Point Hospital, and a holiday brush pack in Concrete Genie. Check them out to really get in the festive mood, and maybe even enjoy Christmas whilst also avoiding the real world celebrations.
