Help Wanted For Game Based on Arab-Israeli Wars

Hello, I am in the process of making a game based on the Arab-Israeli wars, and I am looking for skilled people who can use Cry-Engine 3. I have posted a description of the game on the project page at the following link: http://www.crydev.net/project_db.php?action=project_profile&team_id=823&project...

Re: Video Games and Moral Choices

I don't want this to turn into an argument, so I'll just say this: If you're merely saying that a protagonist should make mistakes in a story setting, advancing a moral argument within the story, then there's nothing wrong with that so long as he comes to repentance, like Frodo did after he sent his...

Re: Video Games and Moral Choices

Now I think you're getting it! In the beginning, God was good, and His creations were good. God didn't need Adam and Eve to know evil for them to be good and obedient to Him. For example, God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply." And they did as they were told. But when Satan taught them evil, d...

Re: Video Games and Moral Choices

Evil can be appropriately portrayed in a game without involving the player. Besides, we don't need a stupid game to tell us how to do good or evil, and we certainly don't need to do evil things in-game in order to learn. God's word tells us plainly what is good and what is evil, and that is sufficie...

Re: Video Games and Moral Choices

God's word is clear: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. -1 John 2:15-16 And do not...

Only a really sick person would want to play a game in which you crucify Jesus.

Re: So you want to be a Game Designer?

No-one cares what I think, but I'm just gonna say it. I think I might be happier writing books. But at the same time, I long to be significantly involved in a AAA game that glorifies Jesus. I'm willing to accept that I need more life experience before I really get involved in commercial games, but u...

Re: General Christian Game Design - Your thoughts needed..

Ask yourself this question: Would it please or glorify God if my game allows players to become evil or do evil things? I can assure you that such a game would not please God. Video games (especially story-based games) have a lot of potential to lead people to Christ. You can do this by having your c...

Re: Video Games and Moral Choices

There's a spiritual dimension of this issue that's not being explored. As Christians, we should be repulsed by games that allow us to do evil. Even if some such games "penalize" us for bad behavior. These games still have ways for us to cheat the justice system, such as paying off our bounties to th...
