Jesus Christ RPG Announced

First, there was Jesus Christ. Then, Jesus Christ Superstar. In-between those, there was “Superstar” Billy Graham and even Reverend Billy Graham. NOW, THERE IS JESUS CHRIST RPG! If you grew up in the early ’90s, then Color Dreams games might be something you were aware of. Locally, a Christian bookstore stocked every last one of them, and with the benefit of hindsight and their buy it now prices on ebay, I wish I’d bought them all. You don’t have to worry about having that kind of non-buyer’s remorse for Jesus Christ RPG though, as it will be completely free to play. Jesus Christ RPG is the second of three planned Christ-inspired RPGs.

Baby Jesus Christ RPG will theoretically precede it, while Rise Jesus Christ RPG seems like it would naturally follow it. The graphics are a wee bit on the primitive side, and I say that as someone who not only owns an OUYA, but uses it regularly. Yes, there is such a thing, and no, it isn’t a verifiable act of God – I’ve talked with Nationwide about it. The art style alternates between something that tries to resemble a 16-bit RPG and something in an almost South Park Canadian head art style, but with early N64-level graphisc. Actually, no, they’re far worse than that. Those had shading at least – these are all flat and just look unappealing to the eye. None of the games have set release dates, so the second coming might happen before anyone has a chance to play them.
