In a weirdly specific press release, religious game developer and publisher Left Behind Games stated that it’s received initial holiday orders for 37,174 copies of its PC games.
The orders were from the U.S.’s “top four leading Christian store chains,” covering 503 locations. Titles ordered included Praise Champion, Charlie Church Mouse: Superpack, Keys of the Kingdom and Left Behind 2: Tribulation Forces, but the real stalwart of the bunch was Left Behind 3: Rise of the Antichrist, which averaged 24.8 copies ordered per store.
CEO Troy Lyndon added, “The depth of these new orders increases our projected fiscal year revenue by $401,095.”
Last month, Left Behind reported revenue of $210,000 for the two previous quarters of 2010, so it appears that Christian games are no different than mass-market games in relying on holiday sales to boost full year profits.
Left Behind Games recently revealed that its games would be carried in Wal-Mart stores around the U.S., following a pilot program in Texas. The company added that it is currently seeking distributors in Australia, South Africa, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Europe.
