Left Behind Beta Demo Next Week

Left Behind Games announces plans to release a beta demo for Left Behind: Eternal Forces, their controversial upcoming Christian-themed post-apocalyptic RTS game, on August 29:
LOS ANGELES - Aug. 23, 2006 - After more than four years of business and product development, Left Behind Games Inc. (LFBG.OB) will release in 6 days, the fully playable Beta Demo of the company's highly anticipated product, LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces. Left Behind Games expects this first product to perform well, reaching gamers, moviegoers and readers of the popular Left Behind book series, which have sold more than 65 million books to date, and have been translated into more than 30 languages.

"We expect to distribute more than a million Beta Demos to gamers online, as well as to ministry and church organizations interested in the inspirational content," said Troy Lyndon, chief executive officer, Left Behind Games. "Finally, rumors can be set to rest regarding the content. LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces has no blood, no gore, no call to jihad and no gratuitous sex or violence of any kind." LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces, the first title from Left Behind Games, is a real-time-strategy game set in an apocalyptic New York City. Players command the Tribulation Forces as they attempt to save New York residents from the Global Community Peacekeepers commanded by the Antichrist. LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces is already available for pre-order and will ship this October in time for the holiday season.

jihad; "Jihad" is an Arabic word which comes from the Arabic root word "jahada", which means "exerting utmost effort" or "to strive". The word connotes a wide range of meanings, from an inward spiritual struggle to attain perfect faith, to holy war.

Um, ok. You'd think a christiany-fundie-bloke would know what Jihad was before stating they're not doing it....wouldn't you?

Will this game feature multiplayer modes? Playing as the Antichrist and kicking Kirk Cameron's smug ass all over the map just might be loads of fun!

Oh and curious what happens when modders get ahold of it and mod in sex, blood, and drugs, will Jack Thompson rave about this one, or chalk it up to renegade terrorist hackers?

GG wannabe trendy biblethumpers!

Doesn't it already have bits in it involving blowing up UN (well, proxy UN) ambulances and whatnot?

So we WILL get to play on satan's side in this game--right?

Otherwise, what in the hell good is it?

Not that I really believe in satan ... or god, for that matter. Or any of that mumbo-jumbo

But if I'm going to play the game, I damn well better be able to kill me some religious fanatics!

Go-ooooooooooooo-oooooo Antichrist!

and was expounded by the tribulationist movement in the 1800s

Did not know that. I always stuck "rapture" and "apocalypse" more or less in the same category as one another.


but essentially the religious wars center around possession of the "holy lands" of which jerusalem is key as is much of that whole middle-east area by proxy

Sounds like there's a lot of interpretation involved, honestly. I have a cursory understanding of the origin of the world's main religions, but's that about as far as it goes.

Since the inception and translation of the bible, sure. Every era and society has their version of what the end of the world would be like.

the most modern interpretation with the rapture scenario and all of that is actually alot younger than the bible itself, and was expounded by the tribulationist movement in the 1800s

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post_Tribulation_Rapture

???

the paternal monotheism of the middle east began in Judaism, which mutated into Christianity, and had another offshoot in Islam... all refer to the "one true god", who is referred to as "He", both judaism and christianity refer to jehova, and in fact the Koran was supposedly spoken to Mohammed by the angel Gabriel - so again the relation is clear

(edit: this is discounting the less succesful previous monotheistic experiments of egypt and greece, although mithraism is often considered to have leant a great deal to christian and gnostic theology)

now the politics of each particular tribes territory is a different matter entirely, especially considering the christians themselves were not of a particular ethnic group - however they clearly demonstrated the drive to conquer the world and convert heathens in the crusades, inquisitions and so on... the jews havent really enacted any overt holy wars since their conquest of the caananites and all of that bronze age shit... and the muslims, well - we all know how thats going

but essentially the religious wars center around possession of the "holy lands" of which jerusalem is key as is much of that whole middle-east area by proxy

The only way we would ever GET to an apocolyptic world is through religion and the subsequent war that it has brought to the world since it's inception.

You are obviously too young to remember the Cold War.


kinda funny how the whole modern rapture scenario has taken on a life of its own

Since the inception and translation of the bible, sure. Every era and society has their version of what the end of the world would be like.


but it is fitting, considering the spiritual territorialist underpinnings of its background paternal monotheism.... which reached its logical climax in islam, and then turned against its own roots

???

Jack Thompson has already publicly come out multiple times against this game. He thinks it's an abomination and such.

they took. An RTS? I enjoyed the Left Behind series, although things started getting kinda stale by book 7, and you could probably make some good games out of them.

However, the Tribulation Force never really fights directly against the UN. So how does an RTS make sense? That was a very curious decision.

So while they're banking on fans of the series buying this, I think they might be very disappointed.
