Video game makers blame ‘Satan’ for inability to launch Biblical role-playing game


The makers of a Biblical role-playing game that follows the life of Abraham are blaming their lack of success and inability to fund the project on the influence of Satan.

Speaking with Polygon, Richard Gaeta, co-founder of Phoenix Interactive explained the company’s problems starting cropping up right after the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham.

“I believe that, 100 percent,” Gaeta said.


“It’s very tangible,” explained business partner Martin Bertram. “From projects falling through and people that were lined up to help us make this a success falling through. Lots of factors raining down on us like fire and brimstone.”

Phoenix Interactive’s Kickstarter failed to reach its $100,000 target, only managing to raise $19,000.

1. Couldn't possibly be that the Bible is way more boring than, say, George RR Martin.

2. Well, they can always just play "The Zoo Race"

Here's the description from PCGamer's 15 Weirdest Games list:


The Zoo Race
After the Great Flood, Noah and the animals were very happy to be chosen to live on the Earth. Noah then declared the games of Celebration to begin. The sons of Noah built racetracks and then encouraged the animal creatures to race in them.

That's not even the weird part. What the description doesn't mention is that The Zoo Race is actually about a group of people hanging around in a library who get morphed into animals and forced to compete in the racing equivalent of Saw. We're talking Noah and sons throwing exploding barrels at them, blasting them with flamethrowers, rocket launchers, and having to leap through glass walls - some with brick walls behind them. Then they all dance.


Northernlion also did a video on it, in his series of terrible games



Oh, and on topic:
