Inspired Media Entertainment, the company behind Christian RTS Left Behind, plans to combine the powers of God with the powers of video games and capitalism by creating a game portal for Christian games.
"The company's goal is to establish an affiliate network with at least one percent of the churches — just 3,000 — that would produce an average sales of 50 games per church a year within three years," said Left Behind Games CEO Troy Lyndon. "This alone would generate supplemental revenue of $3 million a year, but more importantly, will provide parents with a healthy alternative for their children."
When the site launches in the next couple months, pious gamers will be able to pick up the Left Behind games, the Charlie Church Mouse games, and a full selection of hundreds of other family friendly titles.
Given that so many people in the country are religious, does it seem strange to you that there are so few worthwhile Christian games out there? It seems like a gold-mine in terms of both getting rich and saving souls! If you're not a Christian, would you play a game with overt Christian themes, if it was good?
