The Indiegogo campaign didn't really go anywhere, but that's not stopping the dedicated team at Phoenix Interactive Studios.

Despite only earning $875 from nine backers in the campaign, co-founder Martin Bertram told GameSpot that Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham is "moving forward at best speed."

The designers are currently building the in-game cities of Memphis, Egypt, and Haran, and they're also putting together a cinematic trailer for the game. In regards to the funding, the studio put together a private placement memorandum (PPM) and they're in talks with "several" potential investors. If everything goes smoothly and they get the money they need, the title will release for the PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

Bertram added that even if the money doesn't come through, the game will be still be completed; it'll just be late:

"…we will definitely complete this project and release it."

Well, good luck.

This is the first time I've heard of this game. I am interested in hearing more about it. If it's based on a true biblical account of Abraham, then I will most definitely support their effort and buy it.

Well, I think society has enough religious propaganda to be getting along with, but freedom of expression and all that…

Is it wrong that my bucket list includes starting a successful cult just for the lulz?

Uh… I'm sure some would find objection with the idea, but I reckon it's brilliant 🙂

Make it the cult of no cults and you will be successful with or without members.

I'm a religious guy, myself, and not American. All I can go by is what I see Conservative American politicians say and do in the news. Fox news seems to be a consistent portrayal of Conservative America, and it's so laughable, my country wouldn't even let that news station in unless they identified as Entertainment News.

Theocracy has no place in a country that professes to be a "melting pot".

Heck yeah! Make this thing as brutal and bloody as the Old Testament actually is, slap an M rating on it, name it Call of Abraham and you'll have it flying off the shelves. Sacrifices, circumcisions, and the sacking of sodom and Gomorrah. Make it as close to the bible as possible and see how many people say violent video games are bad…

But in all honesty, I wish them luck, I don't see it moving a lot of units, but I can guarantee there will be a few disappointed kids at Christmas that will be opening this one year instead of the latest instalment of COD….

Actually I can picture that now, some poor kid… "Sweet! I got Call of….What the !!!??"

Next up in the bible chronicles, Legacy of Cain…you'll spend the whole game trying to come up with ways to kill your own brother…..

Honestly if it was Bible based and had a good engine and gameplay I could see it selling very well. There could be a lot of drama, action, strategy, and violence.

I'd like to see where it goes, this is first I've heard of it. Regardless of your beliefs, whether you believe the Bible or not, there are some books that could make some amazing video games.

The funny thing is, if they made the same game but didn't mention religion, I bet it would sell more..you know a lot of people won't even think about buying a game made by a group of "right wing religious nuts" but if they saw the same game advertised to look like assassin's creed or something, it would sell more.

But I could be wrong, there are enough religious people out there that maybe this will become a niche market….like the Vita…

anyone want to place any bets on wether it will have online multiplayer or not?

I'm not making any bets, but if they could somehow increase that $875 budget to $900, I believe it's quite possible to put in a multiplayer mode.

If it's a good looking game I will play it. You can play games where children are being slaughtered, woman raped, people being cut up, thievery and conquest, yet you cant play a game based on a bible story?

People who have problems with this have very small minds. The Bible has some of the greatest stories ever. So does the Koran.

LMAO, when you were listing the stuff in your first paragraph, I thought you WERE talking about the old testament.
