PC: What Would People Do If They Knew That I’m A…
August 28th, 2008 by Dan

In what is probably the most interesting news story I’ve seen in a while on Kotaku, it seems that there is a new game called Guitar Praise – Solid Rock that revolves around the Guitar Hero concept, retooled to have a tracklist of entirely Christian music.

It’s both a hilarious and good, I suppose, to have such a popular gameplay mechanic ripped off (stolen, if you will) and put in play for God. It’s (religious games) been done before with hilarious result and mocking by the AVGN here and here.

Regardless of how you feel about the religion, I suppose it’s not so bad after all. It’s a market whose fans might not get to play the other versions because they don’t like the music, so why not broaden it and allow them the fun of music they enjoy. Those of you at home keeping score realize that I’m just waiting for someone to independently make some sort of ska music game and realize that I know this is a good sign, even though it could be a cheap knockoff. Follow the link for the full tracklist.

    Although, now that I think about it, they probably could just have easily just put Christian tracks for purchase on Xbox and PS3 and not have to develop a whole new game.

    Yes and no. I can think of a few companies that might have a problem with putting Christian tracks on a game like Guitar Hero whose “story mode” has you go to hell to play guitar against the Devil.

    Good point. But it would be better evangelistically if they had tracks for Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band.

    I totally agree. Big, untapped money in Christian music.
