When Paul told the Church to be imitators of Christ, he likely didn’t mean as a video game character.
In the world’s first Jesus simulator, I Am Jesus Christ, gamers can virtually put on the armor of God and be like Christ. The premise of the video game is to recap Jesus’s real-life events, beginning with his life just before his baptism to his crucifixion and resurrection.
As Jesus, players can use the power of telekinesis to enhance their carpentry skills, charge up their “Holy Spirit energy” to perform miracles, invigorate a wedding reception by turning water into wine, teleport inside a sick child’s blood stream for healing, and avoid a ball of hellfire that is Satan in the desert.
We’re curious to hear what translation the gamemakers used to develop these skills.
For now, the game is still in its demo stages, and you can read Vice‘s write-up about one user’s experience in the simulation. But to sum up the user’s experience, the game has “great meme potential.” So that’s something to look forward to.
A free, shortened version of the game will be available to play on Steam starting Dec. 1. The full version will be available some time in the first quarter of 2023.
