Left Behind Video Games

BusinessWire has a story about the release of Left Behind: Eternal Forces (schedule for Christmas or Easter). According the report, LBEF will put gamers into a future New York City after the Rapture, tasked with converting non-believers into believers and joining the fight against the AntiChrist. The makers, Left Behind Games, Inc. claims the game will "present gamers with a deeper level of game play than in other real-time-strategy titles" and "the scenery will also be the most realistic representation of New York City ever seen in a game".

As a fan of the novels, I'll be sure to check this game out when released, but I have doubts to how popular the game will be. Seems a game based on converting non-believers is going to have a limited audience.
