SimulaM’s upcoming game “I Am Jesus Christ” created quite a stir on the press when it was announced back in 2019 and has made progress over the following year culminating with the recent Christmas trailer.
Today the developer released a new video focusing on recapping that year of development including a trip to Israel to research the subject matter and a look at plenty of images from the game in developmemt.
We also learn that a free “prologue” version will be released on Steam to give players a chance to see what the game is all about. This should come between June and July 2021.
Before that, Simulam plans to hit Kickstarter and releasing a demo between the end of April and the beginning of May.
