Saved Games, Inc. Launches Kickstarter for Unique Christian Video Game
WINSTON SALEM, N.C., Nov. 20, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Saved Games, Inc. is gearing up the next phase of development in its new Christian video game “Heroes of Issachar.” The new game’s concept is refreshingly positive compared to the majority of games currently on the market. Most people cringe when they hear the phrase “Christian video game” because they believe it to be a low quality, preachy, no-fun-at-all game. Saved Games, Inc. aims to put that stereotype to rest with Heroes of Issachar, which recently went live on Kickstarter to help fund its completion.
Saved Games, Inc. is a video game development company dedicated to spreading the gospel using modern methods of communication, specifically mobile apps and games. The company already has an existing catalog of Christian iPhone, iPad, Kindle, and Android apps, but seeks to broaden it’s market by developing quality games for a variety of gaming platforms.
Saved Games’ upcoming game, Heroes of Issachar, is an unapologetic promotion of Christian values. Alongside an innovative action role-playing game, the message of the gospel is delivered through scripture found within the game. For many young people, playing Heroes of Issachar will be the only exposure to the gospel they receive in their day-to-day lives.
Saved Games, Inc. has an amazing opportunity over and above their Kickstarter campaign. If the company hits its Kickstarter goal, the micro-console company OUYA will match the amount of the Kickstarter pledges and offer the game to its users.
Saved Games, Inc. is looking at their Heroes of Issachar project as more than just another game launch. The hope of the company is that it will mark the beginning of a movement in the video game industry, motivating other game developers to produce quality games based on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The goal is to have Christian video games produced with the same quality as today’s Christian music, and have the same influence that modern Christian music has on young people. Through the Kickstarter campaign there is an opportunity for everyone to participate in this movement. Their Kickstarter campaign was launched to expand the scope of the game, upgrade the graphics, and enable the company to claim the matching funds offered by the micro-console company OUYA.
