Is it bad that I’m really looking forward to playing a game aimed at 8-11 year-olds?!
Scripture Union have a reputation for producing high quality Bible-based books and other resources for children and young people. ‘Guardians of Ancora’, an online video game coming out for free later this year, is their biggest project. Ever. It looks really good.
The phrase ‘Christian video game’ and the word ‘good’ don’t often go together. I’ve only ever played two that I like (John Bunyan’s ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ and ‘Run Jesus Run’ – see previous blog posts). But this looks like it’ll be on another level.
Guardians of Ancora doesn’t just want to teach children about the Bible. It wants to help children know Jesus personally, and grow as his friends, all through playing a game! I’m all for that and can’t wait to see what it’s like to play.
