Tribulation Knights

Tribulation Knights is a newly announced game from Indie developer: Atomic Design Laboratory. The gist appears to be that of an apocalyptic world where survivors have been promised salvation by an evil politian who requests that they are microchipped in return. This process, which only works on willing subjects starts changing the way they think, as well as their DNA.

It's being described as a "Christian Video Game" which isn't the first time I've heard that phrase but I think it's one of the first times I've personally read that you have to "[Maintain] a level of faith is necessary since the events of these apocalyptic times can be dishearting."

Now, I'm not religious - apart from when it comes to Valve games perhaps or maybe pastaferianism - so I'm quite curious about the interpretation. These kind of games often have a habit of rasing temperatures on both sides of the "Does God Exist" question. How this will eventually turn out will be revealed in Quarter 2 of 2010. All we have so far are a few pictures. Here's one of them:

It's not the best looking Indie game I've seen so far, but it's also far from the worst. Unless it's very close to being completed I have doubts if it will be released on time. I predict it's success will be all to do with how well the concept is executed and how much controversy it might raise (if any?)

Looks like this is going to be an interesting year already...
