I, the Inquisitor Revealed

An Official Teaser announces development of I, the Inquisitor, an upcoming action/adventure based on the bestselling book series. This reimagines the story of Jesus so that rather than perishing on the cross, he descends as an inquisitor, bent on revenge (what would Arnold do?). Here's the description from the game's Steam Listing:
"I, the Inquisitor'' is a story-driven, dark fantasy adventure game with action elements and difficult moral choices. Based on the bestselling Inquisitor book series by Jacek Piekara, the game takes place in an alternative religious timeline. Once nailed to the cross and near death, Jesus becomes consumed by utter rage. He breaks free and unleashes violent vengeance on all the non-believers. Centuries pass and now an army of zealot Inquisitors brutally enforce the faith in this bloodsoaked Church.

Also the Inquisition was a thing. It actually existed and acted under the jurisdiction of the Catholic church and caused the suffering and oppression of thousands upon thousands in the name of Christ. The actual, Biblical merciful Christ, who preached about turning the other cheek. If you can live with THAT, and are offended by this book series or game, then you are nothing but a history denying hypocrite.

There's even a theory that the inquisition (ironically, wink!) had a huge role in the creation of the Chaos Gods, what with all the suffering and torture; that stuff generates some pretty strong emotions! There's a rumor that Jesus is actually the Emperor of Man!

On the other, I guess it goes to show how some groups are okay to offend. Replace Jesus in this with Martin Luther King, Gandhi or Mohammad, and it would be interesting to see who changes their tune and how they rationalize it.

This is fantasy. It's actually based on a fantasy book series. Instead of having kneejerk reactions because this offends your religion, maybe you could try reading up on it and checking out what the fuss is all about? (Sadly, I don't think his books were translated to english)

I'd go for a scumbag jesus getting revenge on all the fake "christians" but that does not appear to be what this game is. very disappointing.

I'm an atheist, but the idea is a cheap revolting greedy manipulation.

Though a furious righteous Jesus (even if an olive skinned semitic jew) armed to the teeth battling the southern invasion and protecting the white evangelists/WASPs/etc against their replacement by POCs should appeal to the many USA's thoroughly uncatholic christians.

Why did Jesus win the casting call for this videogame?
Wouldn't the Catholic Church be a much more fitting protagonist?

Anyone read The Brothers Karamazov / The Grand Inquisitor by Dostojewski?

Yes and the author's name was Fyodor Dostoevsky. Unless you were going for a joke that I did not get.

Might be and I learned something new today. I have always observed it spelled in the Anglicized way my entire life.

It does seem a very un-Jesus-like thing for Jesus to do. First, the Master Chief, now this. Is nothing sacred anymore?

Next season of HALO you can expect Jesus as a new Spartan.
