The "James Game" CD
A 3d style Quiz Game about the Letter of James
The "James Game" CD features 12 lesson-games covering all 5 chapters in the Letter of James.
When you select one of the 12 lessons to play, you can also select the game landscape you want to play it in, ...over 20 different themes in all. Some are simple, others crazy or futuristic. Each game landscape/theme features challenging rooms and hallways to run through, and plenty of things to jump over, jump on, or stay away from! (like a gigantic stomping boot pictured below). The ability to change the game theme/environment is very appealing, and keeps the game fresh.
The game style of the James CD is "3D". 3D means you are running, jumping, hunting, ducking, and otherwise exploring a series of "game levels." Rather than moving a character on the screen, your point of view in the game is "first person." As you move through the rooms and hallways of the games, jumping on scaffolding or figuring your way around chasms, you find verses and answers questions about them in order to to advance. The verses and quizzes about the verses are embedded in game terrains/landscapes.
And then there's "Mr Green Jeans" (pictured right). He's a bit confused. You find him in each game and try to help him understand how to apply the James verses to his problem.
If you've played the Interactive Parables CD you'll recognize the James game as from the same developer. James was made with the same game engine and features some of the same gaming devices/challenges, though it is updated.
System Requirements: Windows Me/XP/Vista/7 only. Modern 3d capable graphics card/chip (which your computer very likely has if it's less than 5 years old). 1gb of processing power or more. 512 mb of ram or more. This is a 3d game which will perform better on a well appointed machine.
Ages 10 and up. Most kids younger than 10 will find the gameplay too difficult. Adults will enjoy the game too. We think it's great for home use, Sunday School, and game-time at church.
Price: $19 for one copy. $17 each for 2 to 4 copies. $16 each for 5+ copies. $15 each for 8+ copies. Order now at www.sundaysoftware.com/order.htm
Title Note: We call this the "James Game" but it's official title is "Book of James: Interactive Bible."
More James Game Details:
The quiz questions assume/teach a basic knowledge of James which you may know, or may have just read at the opening of the game! Of course, if you don't know the answer, you'll have to try again. Might be a good idea to have your Bible at hand and opened to James!
In each game you'll meet "Mr. Green Jeans" (pictured right) -a young lad who is confused. You must answer his questions with the correct response in order to receive gems that allow you to complete the level. Maps and inventories of each level are at your fingertips.
At the beginning of each game you can choose the "style" of game level theme you want to play your selected verse in. Some are spartan and a bit futuristic. My favorite is the "Barrel Warehouse" pictures right. The level themes and decor are modest. The focus is on the game action and content.
Each of the James games takes upwards of 40 minutes to complete --depending on how good you are at playing the game. You get "multiple lives" and bonus points to stay in the game, but there is a limit. The mazes and game play aren't that hard (for gamers), but they are challenging, require plenty of time to play, and you may run out of turns and have to go back to your last saved location. Adults who don't have experience playing 'video games' or 3d style games will find IP difficult to preview. Get a teen to help!
