Upcoming Kickstarter-funded The Bible Videogame is looking for #funding for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The game’s #creators, The Tornado Twins, announced the Linux news in an earlier update to their Kickstarter page.
If The Bible Videogame is approved for those systems, it will double the number of platforms the game will available for, joining Linux, Mac and Windows PC. No plans have been announced for Xbox versions but the game will release for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PS Vita.
The Bible Video Game unfolds episodically (ten installments are planned, including one focused around David & Goliath) that aims to turn the “world’s most-loved book into a quality game.” Developers say they want to make a “cutting-edge gameplay experience” that will let players virtually experience the stories of the Bible like they never have before. “It will be true to the Bible,” they say.

The Tornado Twins, AKA Ruben and Efraim Meulenberg, are perhaps best known for their YouTube channel, which has tallied close to 10 million views to date. To create The Bible Videogame, they have hired various developers who have worked on video game franchises like Lego, Star Wars, and Assassin’s Creed.
After meeting with parents at churches across the United States and Europe, the twins say they were inundated with requests by parents for a video game about the Bible. Though other mediums, like film, TV, and books, have covered the Bible extensively, there has yet to be a high-quality video game adaptation of the Bible, is what they argue.
The Twins also heard from parents that they want a Bible game that isn’t full of gore, appeals to be a wide range of ages, isn’t “cheesy,” and is true to the Bible. That’s exactly what The Bible Videogame aims to achieve, they say.
To make The Bible Videogame a reality, the Tornado Twins are looking to raises $35,000 by November 1. At press time, funding stands at $27,726. The $35,000 covers the first three episodes, while the Twins note that they will need around $380,000 in total to deliver all ten installments.
Earlier this year, Phoenix Interactive Studios launched a crowdfunding campaign for another Bible-themed game, The Call of Abraham, but it was not successful.
