Old, Uncommon or Obscure Christian Games (Add Yours to List)

Postby blendenzo » Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:58 pm

I enjoy collecting Christian games, especially old, obscure or uncommon ones. Perhaps there are others here with a similar interest who would like to share lists and pictures of their collections. I will begin with mine:

Console Games:
Spiritual Warefare for Sega Genesis [Cartridge] Wisdom Tree

PC Games:
Bible Time Fun [CD-ROM] Bridgestone Multimedia Group, 1995
Catechumen [CD-ROM] N'Lightning Software Development, 2000
Catholic Challenge For PC & Mac [CD-ROM] Divinity Religious Products, Inc., 1996
Escape from Rome (Onesimus) [CD-ROM] Good News Software, 1997 (Not original publisher)
Exodus for PC [5.25" & 3.5" Diskettes] Wisdom Tree, 1992
The Life of Christ: An Adventure in Learning [CD-ROM] Discovery Interactive, 1999
Noah's Ark [CD-ROM] The Standard Publishing Company, 1998

Card, Board, Dice Games:
The Ark of the Covenant [Board]
Principality [Card] Epos, 2004 (http://eposent.com/Principality/)
Settlers of Canaan [Board] Cactus Game Design, Inc., 2002
Story Chasers Adventure Card Game [Card] BibleQuest, 2007

Some of my favorite factiods from my list:

Onesimus was built on top of the Jill of the Jungle game engine. It is the equivalent of a sprite swap with Jill, with occasional Bible verses that interrupt game play.

I just found Catholic Challenge today while looking for old books at a local thrift shop. It was the only game at its time to have a Nihil Obstat, which makes it very unique in the game world. I'm not sure if other games since have earned official Church approval.

Yeah, I've played a few of the ones you named.

I also have

Ominous Horizons (sequel to Catcechumen by N'Lightning)

As well as some for younger audiences:

Adventures in Odyssey - Sword of the Spirit
Adventures in Odyssey - Treasure of the Incas
Adventures in Odyssey - Great Escape
VeggieTales - The Mystery of Veggie Island
VeggieTales - Minnesota Cuke And The Coconut Apes

I used to play these all the time, before the Internet took my life over. P: Those were the days.

N'Ligntening did, imo, some of the best christian games out there. I have many fond memories with Catechumen and Ominous Horizons.

Don't forget to grab Shadows of Light. This one's another must grab for the Christian Game Connoisseur. It's a fun, fast paced shooter (Quake 1/2 era) that isn't cheesy with it's message. So, you know, a gem for christian games. Mack released it for free, so now there is 0 reason to not grab it.

I agree - both of those were good - Catechumen's ending was well done!

Take a look http://ChristianGamesNOW.com/history.html - an incomplete history of Christian Games
Combine that with the current titles at http://ChristianGamesNOW.com and most are covered.
