SimulaM unveiled I Am Jesus Christ last Christmas – its interactive first-person PC game providing a realistic depiction of the life of Christ – and the team returns with more news about their upcoming game. With publisher PlayWay, SimulaM will be launching a Kickstarter campaign early 2021 for the game. To celebrate Christmas, a brand new trailer depicts the nativity, just one of the many key moments from Christ’s life that will be included in the game’s final release. The Kickstarter pre-launch page is now live, and those interested in supporting the project can sign up to receive notifications from today.
Ambitious in scope and accurate in its level of detail, I am Jesus Christ will give players the chance to interact with a cast of over 60 Biblical characters and perform over 30 miracles including feeding the masses and resurrecting the dead. The game takes place in a highly detailed, beautifully crafted faithful recreation of the Holy Land including the City of Jerusalem and the Galilee region where Christ spent so much time spreading the gospel’s message and performing miracles.
The game is based on the New International Version of The Bible, taking you through Jesus’s birth, adulthood, crucifixion and resurrection, with traditional game mechanics such as quests, abilities and traversing an open-world, combining them with the New Testament narrative that’s instantly familiar to billions.
The Kickstarter page will go live in early February, giving supporters a chance to back the continued development of I Am Jesus Christ. Before then, players will be able to go to the Kickstarter page to sign up for notifications or visit the Steam store page to wishlist the game. Players can also follow the official Facebook and YouTube accounts to keep up to date with the campaign, the latest news and release information. More information on stretch goals and rewards will follow as the campaign gears up for its 2021 launch.
