Corvallis, Oregon - Australian-based game developers White Knight Games announce their partnership with publisher and distributor GraceWorks Interactive to re-release their flagship title Timothy&Titus: Saints, Martyrs, Heroes. In particular, Christian Retailers will be sought out as a means to reach interested parties. In particular, tweens will enjoy the action and parent will appreciate the Bible-based settings and environments. GraceWorks Interactive will work with existing partners and seek to develop new relationships.
“We pray that Timothy&Titus is a blessing to all those who plays it” states Tim Emmerich, primary for GraceWorks Interactive.“It is an experience of Biblical Times that teaches while being fun. What a wonderful alternative to secular titles.”
White Knight Games says“We made Timothy&Titus to educate and entertain the youth, to create a Christian game that could try to compete against its secular counterparts. We'll continue to focus making products based on the Lord's leading and putting Christ first in Games.”
White Knight Games, headquartered in Perth, will also market the game in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe. In particular, the Philippines is of special interest since the development team, Anino Games, is Filipino and the technical team is based in the Philippines. Correspondingly, GraceWorks Interactive will seek out Filipino-owned retailers in the Americas. Atwater Christian Bookstore in Los Angeles, California, is one example.
A new streamlined packaging will increase stocking and display efficiency. The game will come in a standard DVD package featuring a Quick Start Guide and CD-ROM inside. On the CD will be trial games from GraceWorks Interactive, and online resources can be found at http://www.timothyandtitus.com . This fun action adventure game will operate on consumers' Windows-based PCs. And take the players to the ancient lands of Crete, Ephesus and Rome. This title is available now.
Emmerich states“we are experiencing a 'second generation' of Christian games.“Be sure to investigate the diversity that this market offers. I encourage you to give these great new products a try and to support a ministry serving your community, your local Christian bookstore.” GraceWorks Interactive also publishes for Inspired Idea and their own creations and will shortly republish Virtue Game's Nacah, the original Biblical Alternative to Myst.“There is tremendous variety available now. For example, Cloud 9 Games' Heavenly Harmony just shipped. It is Karaoke with quality Christian music but also has several mini-games to help improve your skills for the performances. Also, Digital Praise has improved their popular Dance Game with a second released called ReMix.” stated Emmerich.
