    Perhaps you're familiar with the "Left Behind" series? Apocalyptic Christian fiction that mixes all the excitement of the bible with the writing skills of James Patterson?

    Well, now, it's a video game.


    And the gameplay? You really should take a look.


    Yes, you can play a creepy god botherer who either converts sinners or shoots them.

    Hearing your units yell "The tribulation force is strong, then run down a lone person on a street firing machine guns at them? Wow. Just. Wow.

    ... you missed this when it came out (and was linked on warrenellis.com, I believe) two years ago?

    Yeah, I remember it now that you mention it, but I still hope it doesn't exist. :(

    Isn't it awesome(ly terrible)?

    I had the great displeasure one Christmas morning of being made to watch the first movie with my family, two months before it went to theaters! They even included a pair of tickets with the DVD. Sadly, the people buying the books/etc have No Qualms with it, feeling that its right in line with how things ought to/will be. And there's way too many of them(people, that is).

    I have to laugh at the sick irony when you consider these people's attitudes towards other video games.

    "Them Grand Theft Auto games are sinful against the lord, with all them stealin' and the killin'. Why can't you play a game like Left Behind, where you convert or kill them queers and the blacks?"

    I just watched the trailer for it....damn funny. Makes me with the rapture would come soon and take those people away so they can stop pissing in the gene pool.

    ... you know, I'd happily forgotten this game had existed.
    When I was in college someone kept on trying to get me to watch the DVD...I mysteriously never found time.

    Kirk Cameron was in the movie. Kirk...Cameron.




    Sorry, I didn't know this was quite so old Ariana. I just saw it pop up on a RSS game feed this afternoon.

    nonono, it's Omega Code that's truly awesome. Casper Van Dien and Michael Fucking Ironside.

    Kirk Cameron is a horribly moronic piece of shit. Just in case anyone didn't already know...

    Kirk Cameron was a dicksmack in Growing Pains, and it's good to see that what passes for his "acting ability" hasn't changed in the years since he was a Tiger Beat heartthrob. "I can't do anything! But God can!!"...yeah, buddy, that's called a metaphor.

    Also of important note is the Russian-ish anti-Christ villain (so, so easy!) and the evangelism of the Jews to American Protestantism. Wow.

    The computer game is almost so bad that it's genius, but the groupmind chanting "The Tribulation Force is strong!" before they blow up a car is kinda freaky.

    I can totally see a ridiculous number of uh'Mericans buying into this schlock. Which is sad. Or funny. Depends on my mood.

    I remember one night I was flipping through the channel guide on the tube, and saw something entitled "The Way of the Master". I says to myself, "Hey, a kung fu flick I haven't seen!"

    Wrong.

    It was a show hosted by God's Favorite, Kirk Cameron, on the best ways in which to annoy heathens. In retrospect, it was pretty funny.
