As you can imagine, the task of building a innovative game resources is not exactly tiny. We are building something that will change the way that young people in the Western World will learn about God and potentially, the games we are building will spread around the developed world reaching hundreds of thousands of young people. This opens up a new world of possibilities for God’s story to go places that we haven’t ever been able to take it! The digital world is an exciting new realm for us to head into, but it is not a cheap place to aim for! Young people are bombarded with over 3000 visual messages a day, and their expectations of what entertainment and education SHOULD look like, are very high.
