So, How Will the King David Side-Scrolling Game Feature Interactive Adultery?

Seems like a fair question if the plan is to base games on every single book of the Bible – at some point you’re going to have to turn some of the more unsavory, sinful stuff into interactive levels. Coming from “the twins who trained 40,000 game developers” (did they train them well? That’s left unsaid), this Kickstarter-funded game based on David is seeking a mere $35,000. And yet the pitch is almost completely secular (save a couple of faith-based endorsements), based on the notion that the Bible is simply a popular book. And none of the “episodes” mentions Uriah…

(Atlas Shrugged is also a popular book, but that didn’t make the movies that have been based on it a good financial idea.)

I honestly wonder if the Tornado Twins have actually sat down and read the Bible cover-to-cover, because some of those books will be tough to turn into popular playable adventures. I’m looking at you, Deuteronomy.
