Publisher's Summary

In the beginning, a small, unlicensed game development company was hit with divine inspiration: They could make a lot of money (and escape the wrath of Nintendo) by creating games for Christians. With the release of the 1990 NES platformer, Bible Adventures, the developers saw what they had made, and it was good. Or, at least, good enough.

Based on extensive research and original interviews with Wisdom Tree staff, Gabe Durham's audiobook investigates the rise and fall of the little company that almost could, the tension between faith and commerce in the Christian retail industry, culture's retro/ironic obsession with "bad games", and the simple recipe for transforming a regular game into a Christian game: throw a Bible in it and pray nobody notices.

Boss Fight Books are great.

BFB is a wonderful series, and for their first audiobook, they started with my favorite. Amazing combination of memoir and history: fantastic.
