'Left Behind' Moves To PC Games

The best-selling Left Behind series is set to bring the battle of good versus evil to PC gamers everywhere with Left Behind: Eternal Forces.

“After several years of development and hard work, we’re very excited to allow Christian retailers to be the first to see what we believe is the future in Christian entertainment,” said Troy Lydon, chief executive officer and co-founder of Left Behind Games. “Left Behind brand games will be cutting edge—standing head and shoulders above previously developed Christian titles. Our games are made with the talent of more than 40 developers on three continents. These games will appeal to both Left Behind fans and hard-core gamers.”

Left Behind: Eternal Forces is a real-time-strategy (RTS) game that will place participants in the midst of the battle between the Tribulation Forces and the Global Community Peacekeepers during the End of Days. Gamers will play through events directly taken from the book series as well as battle to capture territory from other players in a multi-player online game mode.

"We know that video gamers are an underserved market for values-focused Christian products," said Jeffrey Frichner, president, Left Behind Games. "We are committed to providing Christians and non-Christians alike with opportunities to consider matters of eternal importance through the thought provoking content in our games."

Left Behind Games Inc. will make the first public presentation of Eternal Forces at the International Christian Retail Show in Denver, July 11-14. The game is scheduled to be released, “between Christmas 2005 and Easter 2006,” according to GameSpot.com.
