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.

SleakerI think Nintendo has proven over the last 2 years that it doesn't.09/02/2014 - 12:31am
Andrew EisenSleaker - Uh, yeah. Obviously.09/01/2014 - 8:20pm
Sleaker@AE - exclusives do not a console business make.09/01/2014 - 8:03pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that, despite the presence of a snopes article and multiple articles countering it, people are still spreading a fake news story about a "SWATter" being sentenced to X (because the number seems to keep changing) years in prison.09/01/2014 - 5:08pm
Papa MidnightAnd resulting in PC gaming continuing to be held back by developer habits09/01/2014 - 5:07pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that the current gen of consoles is representative of 2009-2010 in PC gaming, and will be the bar by which games are released over the next 8 years - resulting in more years of poor PC ports (if they're ever ported)09/01/2014 - 5:06pm
Andrew EisenMeanwhile, 6 of Wii U's top 12 are exclusive: Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101, and ZombiU. (Wind Waker HD is on the list too but I didn't count it.)09/01/2014 - 4:36pm
Andrew EisenLikewise, only two of Xbox One's top 12 are exclusive: Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome (if you ignore a PC release later this year).09/01/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenNot to disrespect the current gen of consoles but I find it telling that of the "12 Best Games For The PS4" (per Kotaku), only two are exclusive to the system: Infamous: Second Son and Resogun.09/01/2014 - 4:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/01/beyond-two-souls-ps4-trophies-emerge-directors-cut-reported/ MMM MMM, nothing quire like reheated last gen games to make you appreciate the 400 bucks you spent on a new console.09/01/2014 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenThat's actually a super depressing thought, that a bunch of retweeters are taking that pic as an illustration of the actual issue instead of an example of a complete misunderstanding of it.09/01/2014 - 4:20pm
Andrew EisenObviously, the picture was created by someone who doesn't understand what the issue actually is (or, possibly, someone trying to satire said misunderstanding).09/01/2014 - 4:10pm
Papa MidnightPeople fear and attack what they do not understand.09/01/2014 - 4:04pm
Papa MidnightWell, let's not forget. Someone held their hand in a peace sign a few weeks ago and people started claiming it was a gang sign. Or a police chief displayed the hand signal of their fraternity and was accused of the same.09/01/2014 - 4:04pm
SleakerEither people don't understand that what the picture is saying is true, or the picture was created out of a misunderstanding of what sexism is.09/01/2014 - 3:52pm
Sleaker@AE ok yah that's where the kind of confusion I'm getting. Your tweet can be taken to mean two different things.09/01/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - No. No, not even remotely. The pic attached to my tweet was not made by me; it's not a statement I'm making. It's an illustration of the complete misunderstanding of the issue my tweet is referring to.09/01/2014 - 3:13pm
Papa MidnightIn other news, Netflix states why it paid Comcast: http://money.cnn.com/2014/08/29/technology/netflix-comcast/index.html?hpt=hp_t209/01/2014 - 3:10pm
Papa MidnightAndrew Eisen: Sites like Tumblr make things seem much bigger than they are. A vocal extreme minority start complaining and things go as they do.09/01/2014 - 3:09pm
