German developer FiAA GmbH announced today The Bible Online, an MMORPG and RTS designed to let gamers "reenact and witness" Christian scriptures.
The Bible Online: Chapter 1 -- The Heroes is based on the book of Genesis, and will put players in the role of Abraham and his descendants as they set out from their home in Haran to do God's bidding and take control of Canaan.
"The Bible Online is developed for players of all ages to easily get closer to the Bible, while enjoying the game," said FiAA GmbH President Dr. Alan Kim. "We plan to service the game in most of the European languages by the end of the year. We will also develop following chapters to cover all the stories of the Bible."
Playing as Abraham and his successors Isaac and Jacob, players will have to construct villages, manage resources, negotiate with other tribes, and engage in some seriously old-school Biblical warfare.
