Multiply some fish in a bucket. Cast out demons with glowing red eyes. Walk on water. Roll away a stone. A new console and mobile game, modestly titled I Am Jesus Christ, is the perfect gift for the megalomaniac in your life.
The game is being developed by PlayWay S.A. of Poland, with a blurb that sounds like it came out of Borat: ‘Become Jesus Christ, the famous man on Earth – in this highly realistic simulation game. Pray like Him for getting superpower, perform famous miracles like Him from Bible like casting out demons, healing and feeding people, resurrection and more in “I am Jesus Christ’.’
The announcement of the game on Twitter was greeted with some incisive theological commentary:
Will I get a reward if I log off and don’t play for three entire days?

PlayWay’s other great hits include The Beast Inside, Lust for Darkness, and Hell Architect, where ‘you take on a role of a hell manager and are tasked with developing the underworld in a way that would make Lucifer himself fall off his chair.’
