Normally the good christian games are built on the Doom engine.

I'd rather play Goat Simulator.

"Released on the W3D engine"?  It's literally the exact same game just with the nazi sprites changed to goats.

Worth a couple hours if you can get it for free. Pretty fun. Also, find someone that has a low profile gaming website, they'll give you games if you bang out 300 word reviews for them. THEN with your email address from said game website you start asking companies for games.

For those who don't remember, this was one of those really sketchy SNES games where in order to play it you had to insert a real SNES game into a slot built into this game, because Nintendo refused to authorize it.

It'd be awesome to have a Noah's Ark simulator, where you have to live for 40 days without the tigers eating everything and the elephants trashing the place. Oh and dealing with no fresh food or water for 40 days.

And if you survive that, trying to avoid all the genetic defects of everyone farking their cousins.

Interesting.  I might want to do this.  Make my hobby my job.  Never work a day again!

It's a reskin/clone of Wolfenstein, is probably why they're specifying.  Hijacked levels and everything, I think, looking at the video.

Make it a logistics simulator like SimTower and I'd put a few hundred hours into that easily.

Kind of.  Game Genies also used the passthrough method, but they were meant to modify the game itself.  Super 3D Noah's Ark basically looked like a knock-off Game Genie, but it had the passthrough because it needed to use a Nintendo-approved SNES game's signature to get the SNES to run it.  Here's a picture:

Hm.

I'd like to think that Christian gaming, or Christian anything else, would be more about the "love your neighbor" part and less about "indoctrinate unquestioning belief in specific details of the mythology". (Not that I think anybody really envisions Noah's family running around shooting food at animals, but more "let's play a game set in Noah's Ark to remind us that somebody really did cram the entire animal kingdom into a boat for 40 days".)

I suppose people just don't find it entertaining enough to help each other out, as opposed to killing things. I guess that's why we end up needing the lever of religion to pry decent behavior out of ourselves. Heaven forbid we should teach decent behavior as its own reward, rather than a way to avoid a loving God's sentence of eternal torture.

I loved Bible Adventures on the NES. Running around with all of the animals over my head like Mario mushrooms cracked me up.

left 4 dead did a pretty good job of teaching people that teamwork and helping each other despite the other players' apparent autism can often be its own reward

You're not making Christianity better. You're making gaming worse.

But it isn't the Best Game With Nude Pictures of Denise Crosby Instead of Wall Textures built on the Wolfenstein 3D engine.

If by "new" you mean 20 years old.

AVGN covered this in his video Bible Games 1 or 2. There was a rumor that iD gave the company the source code because they were pissed that Wolfenstein 3D was censored on the SNES, though, it's just a rumor.

HA! That's a good way to give Nintendo the big middle finger, if you ask me.

I played the hell out of those Shareware games you could get on a 3.5 floppy from the grocery store. Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem, Hugo's House of Horrors, etc. Good times.

I was more fond of Spiritual Warfare. If you can look past the quizzes, there's actually a pretty decent Zelda clone underneath.

Being as I just fired up an SNES I bought off ebay, along with an sd2snes, I think I'll fire up the original and give it a shot when I get home.

/love playing all of the Super Metroid hacks.
