This is a "I swear to god, I'm not making this shit up!" entry. From now on, these entries will have the acronym "ISTGINMTSU" in the title. ;]

"Eternal Wars: The Shadow of Light" is not the type of game Ned Flanders of the The Simpsons would buy for his do-good sons Rod and Todd. Built with the Quake game engine, "Eternal Wars" is a first-person shooter: You are an angel named Mike sent by God to battle assorted demon spawn. The prize: the soul of a troubled teenager.

For Mackenzie Ponech, president of the development company Two Guys Software, the purpose was to deliver a Christian message, but not at the expense of game play.

"We focus on building great games without shoving the bible down your throat," he said.

Is Christian gaming going to be like Christian rock? You know, the video game equivalent of Creed? ("Jesus says, Creed sucks!!")

The only other thing I have to say is:

Mmmm... the tender, JUICY soul of a teenager... (Evil, evil cackle.)
