Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

June 15, 2010 -

Christian game developer Left Behind Games has released details on its lineup of PC titles for the rest of the year, including a pair of games that will pit users against the forces of the Antichrist.

Left Behind Tribulation Forces – Due out June 28, this strategy title will have players take on the Antichrist’s minions across “two battlefronts – physical and spiritual.”  The latter willd feature, "warfare using the power of prayer and worship as more powerful weapons than guns.” Rated “T” (Teen), the game will also have online play and the ability to control an all new faction, the American Militia Forces!

Left Behind 3 Rise of the Antichrist – Aimed at players 13 and up, this entry in the Left Behind series is set in a future New York City. The strategy game centers on the “ultimate fight of Good versus Evil,” with battles between the Tribulation Forces, Global Community Peacekeepers and the American Militia. Due out on October 1 and also features the aforementioned ability to fight using the power of prayer.

Praise Champion – This karaoke game will come with a USB microphone ($29.99 for the package) and allow players to sing along to “40 awesome Christian songs.” Will support up to four players.

King Solomon’s Funny Bible Trivia – To be released on October 15, this PC game promises appropriate humor for the entire family in a game show atmosphere as up to three people attempt to correctly answer Bible-based trivia.

Left Behind previously stated that it planned to expand upon a successful pilot program with Wal-Mart, which saw select Texas-based stores carry the Christian-themed games. The program is expected to expand to Wal-Mart locations in additional unspecified regions.

Oh dear a game where you are in a Militia. *Shudders*

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

While I fully support their right to make these games, I cringe and wonder why anyone would want to influct these games on someone else.

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Lol, yeah, that's what I was thinking.  I don't really have a problem with religious Right-wingers having video games that appeal to them.  But it's a little sad that they'll buy these crappy games just because they're religious in nature.  Left Behind games (at least the first two) play teffibly, they're not fun.  But like those fools who drive 200 miles out of their way to go look at a grilled cheeze sandwitch with Jesus burned into the side, it somehow makes them feel more in touch with their faith. 

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Why is this even news-worthy and on GP?

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Because it combines gaming and the loony Christian Right. What's not 'Gamepolitics' about that?

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

So could you be a witch and use Magick to counter prayers?

Yes praying, the deadliest weapon known to man!

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Wow! Two games, two oxymorons: "awesome Christian songs" and "funny Bible trivia".

Yeah, I'll be knocking down Gamestop's doors for these two. The other two look like real winners too.Can I play as the Global Community Peacekeepers (who I expect are supposed to be the bad guys) and kick both Christian and Hellspawn ass? I'd like to see the Christians use the power of prayer against, let's say, a thermo-nuclear device. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure the power of prayer will somehow work in the game, unlike in reality where the Christians would be (literally) toast.

Why does King Solomon look completely insane?

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Given that most demon (and angel and elemental) summoning stuff modern people use comes from something he (supposedly) wrote...

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

Think a second about who's making the game.

Re: Left Behind Details Upcoming Games

He reminds me a little of the Burger King. So yeah, insane.

Matthew Wilsonnp I am still suprised that the fcc did it, but I still do not trust the chairman yet.01/29/2015 - 2:11pm
Andrew EisenYeah, what I mean is I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where I have the option of up to 50Mbps if I want to pay for it. Meant that as an anecdote; didn't mean it to come across as a "you're wrong!" Sorry 'bout that!01/29/2015 - 2:06pm
Matthew WilsonThat is why I said "every market". for example totalbescuit has TWC, and the best he can get atm is 10/10.01/29/2015 - 1:58pm
Andrew EisenTWC offers speeds that high, at least in my area. (Standard is 15Mpbs)01/29/2015 - 1:54pm
Matthew Wilson@prh I still have my doubts. if anything the big winner is Comcast. they are the only isp in the us that can provide that speed in every market they serve. att, verizon, and twc cant or at least dont.01/29/2015 - 1:50pm
Andrew EisenTrailer for Ted 2 and it looks like it won't simply be a rehash of the first. That's encouraging! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3AVcCggRnU01/29/2015 - 1:49pm
prh99It's nice to see an FCC chair who isn't just there to facilitate monopoly building for cable and telecom. Basically not a dingo.01/29/2015 - 1:46pm
Wonderkarpmine was grandia 201/29/2015 - 1:39pm
Matthew Wilsonoh btw only about 5.6 percent of the us has broadband now.01/29/2015 - 1:21pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.theverge.com/2015/1/29/7932653/fcc-changed-definition-broadband-25mbps did not think the fcc would go through with it.01/29/2015 - 1:16pm
Andrew EisenI know, right? Don't you dare think the fact that I buy all your games makes this sort of behavior okay, TT Games!01/29/2015 - 12:57pm
IanCHow dare thy release games that do well both commercially and critically. How dare they. (refer to the Lego games)01/29/2015 - 12:55pm
Infophile@Wonderkarp: Tales of Innocence. Was in the final dungeon, when I accidentally left my 3DS on an airplane and couldn't get it back. Lost both the game and the system. Got a new system, but not the game (not fun enough to be worth replaying)01/29/2015 - 12:10pm
Andrew EisenOh, thank goodness. There will be at least two console LEGO games this year. For a moment I was worried there! (LEGO Jurassic World, LEGO Marvel's Avengers plus LEGO Ninjago for handheld.)01/29/2015 - 12:08pm
prh99Cminer: It's the only way to monetize Nintendo game videos. Otherwise Nintendo content IDs them and take all the AD revenue. Also it's only covers a small portion of their catalog.01/29/2015 - 12:06pm
