Christian Based Values Video Game Tribulation Knights Starting Development

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 12, 2006

Tribulation Knights? is a brand new video game in what is hopefully a series of video games. The first of the series is a stealth based third-person adventure for the PC, developed and published by Atomic Design Laboratory.


The main character, whose name has not been released, yet, is a recently trained agent of the life saving organization known only as the “Tribulation Knights”. A “Tribulation Knight” is an agent of a secret organization created by a now destroyed association of worldwide Christian churches. Their mission is to insure the freedom and safety of the last Christians left on the planet during the Tribulation. This period after the rapture known as the Tribulation will be a time where Christians worldwide will experience persecution for their faith.????

The storyline is an interpretation of the Bible concerning the end days. A worldwide cult has gained control of the planet and is planning to incarcerate Christians who do not join them. The Tribulation Knights aim is to prevent that. The missions range from gathering intelligence to releasing fellow operatives from interrogation cells, to saving groups of incarcerated citizens from the clutches of the powerful Enforcers.


Tribulation Knights features stealth as one of the most important and critical aspects of gameplay. What truly sets Tribulation Knights apart from other games on the market are its game rules. Shooting and killing of game characters is absent from this game. A high tech slingshot is one of the primary tools available to a Knight and it is used to take out surveillance and alarm systems.

If the player is detected by any of the various types of surveillance, cult Enforcers, or by citizens loyal to the cult, an alarm will sound attracting unwanted attention. If an alarm has been triggered then the mission might end prematurely, or the NPC enemies can become more aware when triggered. The enemy can capture the knight, which forces the player to replay the level or start again from a remote prison cell. The missions require the player to remain almost invisible to the enemy for most of the game. This requires taking less traveled routes like the ledges of tall buildings, crawling through air ducts, and navigating miles of sewer tunnels on an ATV.

A release date has not been announced.

Christian entertainment takes a step forward today with the formal announcement of Digital Praise Inc., a new company formed to produce high-quality interactive Christian games. Digital Praise is committed to releasing fun, exciting game titles that promote virtues and family values like forgiveness, tolerance and kindness, rather than the violent and sexual behavior that is the mainstay of most popular computer games today. Privately held by company founders, Digital Praise is located in Fremont, CA.

Â?Digital Praise is founded on the principle that fun, exciting computer games donÂ?t need to be flooded with violence, sex, hate or images of horror,Â? said Tom Bean, president and CEO of Digital Praise. Â?Our goal is to produce top-quality gaming titles that promote positive values while providing hours of exciting game play that will keep players coming back for more.Â?

Digital Praise is actively involved in the development of titles for release under its own brand and for third parties. The company is currently working on a series of interactive games based on Focus on the Family�s world-renowned Adventures in Odyssey® radio program. Digital Praise has secured the electronic rights for this popular radio series that has aired for 18 years and boasts over 1.2 million listeners each day. Digital Praise announced its agreement with Focus on the Family in a separate joint release today. The company expects to announce the first two Adventures in Odyssey computer game titles next week at the Christian Booksellers Association International 2004 convention.

CTO Peter Fokos, himself a 22-year veteran of the entertainment software industry with such industry giants as The Learning Company and Disney Interactive, said of the companyÂ?s engineering team, Â?WeÂ?ve pulled together a group of developers, producers, artists and audio engineers as fine as any IÂ?ve ever worked with. This is the kind of group that will keep producing award-winning titles and best sellers.Â?

Christian Games: Market Opportunity

An enormous appetite exists for Christian entertainment in various forms. The recent success of Christian music, books, movies, television and art is a testament to the importance of Christian content in all media. There is also strong growth in the U.S. entertainment software industryÂ? sales jumped 8% in 2003 to $ 7 billion1. Recognizing growth in both the Christian entertainment and the software entertainment markets, Digital Praise predicts healthy demand in the emerging interactive Christian games market.

Â?We see a tremendous opportunity in the interactive Christian games market, an industry estimated between $ 100 and $ 200 million in annual sales,Â? said Bill Bean, vice president of sales and marketing. Â?As long as new game titles are top qualityÂ?offering exciting game play and high production valueÂ?we believe that interactive Christian games will skyrocket in popularity much like Christian music did 15 years ago.Â?

Digital Praise is a pioneer in the emerging interactive Christian games industry, joining companies like Big Idea, NÂ?Lightning, and others in the effort to prove that violence, horror and hatred are not necessary components of exciting, fun game play.

Â?NÂ?Lightning products have received enormous praise from all parts of the world for their challenging play, innovative stories, and overall creative qualityÂ?proving that Christian titles can have you on the edge of your seat,Â? said Ralph Bagley, CEO of NÂ?Lightning Software Development, whose Christian action games have sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. He added, Â?Families, in increasing numbers, are saying no to entertainment products that undermine the values they consider essential. In the years to come, the current vanguard of Christian computer game publishers is certain to emerge as an important voice in the entertainment software industry.Â?

Another example of Christian Conservative values?

E! News has confirmed the existence of Ms. Christian Values’ X-rated sex tape—which reportedly prompted her abrupt settlement with Miss California Organization officials—but while the contents may be controversial, the peddlers behind the salacious video have had trouble finding any takers.

The tape actually began making the rounds several months ago and was offered as an exclusive to various websites for the bargain-basement price of $10,000.

But even blogger Nik Richie of the porn-purveying didn’t want anything to do with it.

“It was very graphic,” Richie tells E! News, “and our lawyers wouldn’t let us put it on the site.”

No other site picked up the raunchfest, apparently shot by an ex-boyfriend and which Richie describes as far more explicit than the topless photos of Prejean that surfaced earlier.

Which explains why the tape’s reemergence this week reportedly took Prejean by surprise.

The fallen beauty queen had sued Miss Cali officials in August for libel, slander and religious discrimination two months after they fired her over missed appearances. Prejean was MIA from the pageant-sanctioned events as she traveled the country as a newly minted conservative activist espousing her views against gay marriage.

Pageant officials hit back with a countersuit, seeking reimbursement for her $5,200 breast implants and claiming the bombshell failed to live up to her contractual obligations.

Just as we were preparing for a long, bitter court fight, there was a joint announcement out of the blue on Tuesday declaring a settlement. The following day, TMZ reported that the sex tape was the pageant’s trump card, and Prejean wound up with no money in the settlement (though the pageant was said to have paid $100,000 in fees to her lawyers and publicist).

Citing the settlement’s confidentiality agreement, pageant spokesman Roger Neal declined to comment on whether officials used the sex tape as leverage, except to say “the lawsuits have been dropped, we wish Carrie the best, and Carrie wishes us the best.”

Prejean’s attorney, Charles LiMandri, echoed those sentiments.

“Since it was a confidential settlement, he will not be able to discuss it,” his assistant said.

While LiMandri would not comment on the tape—or whether Prejean would sue to block its release—he told RadarOnline that if the Miss Cali camp did use the sex tape to procure a settlement, he was ready to nullify the deal.

“In my 26 years of practice I have never dealt with a situation like this,” the legal eagle said. “It seems as if someone has acted in an unethical and unlawful manner by even raising this issue. We are weighing our options and if this is a breach of contract we are considering suing for punitive damages.”
