Jesus Christ Video Game Collection

Jesus Christ Video Game Collection - All the Games with Jesus as a Main Character

There aren't many that actually feature Jesus (strange for a Christian video game, right?), but here they are.

The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance (Excellent)
Play for free on Android or iOS, or purchase for PC and Mac
Platform: PC, Mac, Android, iOS
Publisher: Scarlet City Studios, 2016

Wow! This is an impressive game, and I certainly hope Scarlet City continues the series. Right now, you can play through the first 3 episodes in which you help the Scarlet Man (Jesus) restore The Great Engineer (God the Father) to the throne of this steampunk kingdom. The graphics are great, the gameplay is great, and there is plenty of allegorical content referencing Biblical stories. This is a must-play game for any Christian gamer.


Jesus Christ RPG (Good, DLC Review)
Free to play, with DLCs to purchase

Platform: PC
Publisher: Wholetone Games, 2013

Play a variety of characters as you walk through the life of Christ, battling demons and Pharisees. It's a little strange to have Jesus "leveling up" to learn new miracles, but I understand doing it for the sake of the game. I also appreciate all the humor in the game.


The Journey of Jesus: The Calling (Fair)
Platform: Browser (Facebook)
Publisher: Lightside Games, 2012

This game is available only on Facebook. You'll play as a witness to the life of Christ and interact with people of the day, including Romans, Pharisees, and Jewish believers and nonbelievers, playing through real-life scenarios and helping to minister to them as you see fit. The one complaint I have about the game is that it makes you do mundane activities, such as chopping wood or clearing thornbushes to be able to get close enough to the Biblical scene. Still, for free, it's worth playing around in, even if you decide not to finish it.


King of Kings: The Early Years (Good)

Platform: NES
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1991

This is a three-in-one game of playing the Wise Men as they collect their gifts and head to Bethlehem, the Holy Family as they flee to Egypt, and Joseph and Mary as they search for the Boy Jesus at the Temple. You have to avoid traps and enemies while answering trivia questions for points. You'll also see a scene from the early years of Jesus' life at appropriate points in the game.
