Thousands of years later, The Bible has arrived on Steam

By - | Views: 30,387

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:

Quoting: sarmadWhat's with the "Sexual Content" label? 🤔
Have you read the Bible? I haven't directly, but even I know there are tales of incest, rape, and lots of fornicating and sin. Granted, I think they left out the animal/human copulation of the flood story in the biblical version, that is definitely there in the Babylonian version.

Well met! Wesley brothers (Plus their mother: people forget that Susanna was instrumental in John and Charles' formative years. Her work reads pretty well too.) fan club unite! (Yes, that pun was terrible.)

Gotta admit I don't really understand how Method acting could become an actual religion.

Well, it *is* based on faith rather than facts...

Hey, I did a bit of that in 11th-grade Drama, too! Pulled off a decent score in a local one-act competition.

Hey, at least we're not the ones who think the ancestors of Native Americans built submarines. Or that a certain "Happyology" alien triggered mass extinction via hydrogen bombs!

Most of us aren't Young/Flat-Earther conspiracists. Never would I abandon scientific fact.

I think every belief requires a leap-of-faith.

After all, we're here because we believe in our freedom to use our computers instead of being used by them, and it required a decent sized leap to install Linux for the first time, myself.

I realize that trying to prove to someone over the internet that one belief is better or worse than any other is an exercise in futility. Not that it stops the Lowest-Common-Denominator from trying. That's why I hate the state of modern politics. Civil discussion is much preferable to conflict.
