I had to do a double-take to ensure I wasn't seeing things: The Bible is now available on Steam in the form of a Kinetic Novel. Yes really, a developer going by "Bible Games" has actually put it on Steam. This release supports Linux with a Native build too (Ren'py engine) because of course it needs to reach all God's children — something like that anyway.
Not only does it provide the good book, it also comes with an original soundtrack and an voice over from beginning to end. On top of that, there's even a trivia section so you can really prove your knowledge,
I don't think it really needs much of an explanation? Or maybe it does? I heard it's a bit unbalanced and gives lots of conflicting information that doesn't hold up well.
While some might think this is a little odd, or even a silly gimmick, it's managed a "Very Positive" rating on Steam so clearly some are enjoying their time spent in it with reviews like "I will become the greatest Bible player" and "atheists approved".
Even better, it has achievements, because as God knows, people sure do love earning things on Steam. Going by a Reddit post, the developer mentioned they did this because other ways of reading it on a PC were apparently bad.
Again, yes this is a real Steam "game" release, see it over here.
Oh they even made a little trailer for it:
Doesn't sound terribly serious (or even sane) to me.
I mean, pro-level bible software costs a ton (because it comes with pretty amazing interlinked text, Greek & Hebrew translations, historical commentaries, and so on), but basic e-book/audiobook type releases are a dime a dozen.

Duplication glitch for infinite wine and fish still not patched. Took 3 days to respawn when i died.
I'll wait for His next work.
I was actually wondering why there haven't been more games, perhaps similar to Total War, that takes place in dynastic Egyptian times.
See more from me
