The most prominent Bible characters, like Esther, Ruth, Moses, Samson or Jesus, will soon ask you interactive questions about their lives. The game will be released on 3/25/2021 completely for free. Right now you can become a beta tester of Heroes 2: The Bible Trivia Game.

Available for Android and iOS, the game starts in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. Adam and Eve, the first heroes who ever lived, ask twelve questions about their lives. With each correct answer, a player accumulates experience points to unblock the next heroes, until they reach John and the book of Revelation.

Players collect manna with every correct answer and use it to buy nine different effects that will help the answer the questions more quickly and efficiently. Lazarus Effect for example gives a second chance if you get an answer wrong, and Jonah Effect allows you to skip questions like Jonah tried to skip his mission.

“From David, the giant slayer, John, the son of thunder, Samson, the legend, to Joseph, the dreamer; these characters introduced in the game are examples of courage and biblical masculinity. And Esther, the queen of courage, Ruth, the wise widow, and Mary Magdalene, nicknamed ‘Tomb Raider’, are our ‘wonder women’ and they teach important lessons to girls,” says Sam Neves, the creative behind the project.

The game will be released by the end of March, in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French, and more languages will be added shortly. However, the game can be pre-ordered already on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Those who wish to start playing right now, can join the beta testing team, registering here: heroesbibletrivia.org.

A rising market

The online gaming market grew considerably during the pandemic of Covid19, reaching 2.7 billion global users by the end of 20201. Among different game genres, Bible trivia games are getting more attention, like Heroes the Game, launched in 2013 as a pioneer Cristian game, that paved the way for many other projects and developments. From the date it was released, the game generated over 10,000,000 minutes of interaction with its users. It is expected that Heroes 2: The Bible Trivia Game, will carry the torch!
