Christian video game company naturally blames Satan for not getting enough funding
If a company doesn’t get funding, it’s usually a lack of interest from the public. If a Christian video game company can’t get enough funding, it’s all because of Satan.
The founders of Phoenix Interactive Studios are claiming that Beelzebub was the reason their new bible-themed video game Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham didn’t get the funding it needed to begin production.
The company attempted to raise money on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. The Kickstarter campaign raised $19,000 of their $100,000 goal and the Indiegogo push raised $875.
“From projects falling through and people that were lined up to help us make this a success falling through,” Bertram told Polygon.com. “Lots of factors raining down on us like fire and brimstone.”
I like how he kept up the Satan references. Very convincing. He really believes it was the devil himself. What else does he believe? According to an interview the company founders believe “the Bible is literal, deny evolution and think the earth was created 6,000 years ago.”
Honestly, I am surprised Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham didn’t get funding for a few reasons — the first being religious people are usually top notch at raising money and the second reason is because the game developers think the game is like the bible version of Grand Theft Auto.
Since their video game follows the Bible, it would include the destruction of Sodom-Gomorrah, adultery, rape, incest and attempted infanticide (Abraham and Isaac).
“It’s not only the content of the game, but the context in which it’s presented and what’s promoted, what is glorified,” claims Bertram. “In a game like Grand Theft Auto 5, it’s about just having as much fun as you can at the expense of the people whose property you’re destroying and the girls that you’re trying to pick up and use for a night. It’s really glorifying those things.”
Here’s a promo for the proposed game.
Ohhhhhhh, I see the problem. The game looks boring as shit. Maybe their graphics guy was named Satan?
