I love a good tongue-in-cheek game. Just look at the hilarious way Broforce makes fun of American patriotism by making a fun and ridiculous game. Fist of Jesus could do the same, if it doesn’t offend everyone along the way.
Fist of Jesus has launched on Steam with the following trailer:
As if that weren’t enough, Fist of Jesus is a gore beat ’em up classic style arcade game with some RPG elements. Plus, it has the following description:
Fist of Jesus tells the adventures of Jesus and Judas, where the world is now full of Zombies caused by Lazarus’ resurrection. Cowboys, the Roman Army, Mythological Creatures and Steampunk technology in the 80’s style, all packed with lots of fun.
Of course, there are people who don’t like tongue in cheek stuff when it comes to their beliefs. Lazarus turned into a zombie story, Jesus and Judas working together to kick ass – well that just might not fly for some people. However, rather than worrying about offending people, it seems that the developers have just decided to punch open that can of worms without any fear. Sure, the same game without the Jesus and Judas hook might not get the same attention, but Fist of Jesus still looks hilariously awesome nonetheless.
For those who are offended, I recommend not playing it. For those who can see it’s all meant to be lighthearted fun, it’s time for some divine punishment!
