‘The Aetherlight’a game for Christian gamers

social01“The Aetherlight Chronicles of the Resistance” is a role-playing game for Christian gamers.  The game offers a safe environment for children and teens free from profanity and other inappropriate material where they learn about biblical principles, Bible verses and how to treat others.   Players can play with each other in this game which helps build team skills and socialization.

My 10-year-old is playing this game.  At first, she didn’t much care for it, but after a few tweaks and switching to her desktop instead of her laptop, she was so engrossed in the game, she played for a whole day.  Once she was able to create her character and learn the basics of the game, she had a great time.  She was concerned that you still were able to carry guns and kill people and asked how that made it a Christian game.  So, if you are concerned about this, you may not want your child to play.  It is a game where players are fighting for freedom with weapons they choose and earn.

If you aren’t familiar with role-playing games, you build a character based on your own personal preferences.  This character goes on quests given by actors in the game.  Your character earns items and points as you perform and complete quests.  You learn teamwork skills.

I think this game is an excellent alternative to the games children have access to and are playing today.  The game kept my child entertained for hours (which could be a negative if you ask them to take a break).  Many times these games force you to keep playing up to a certain point in order to save your place and not make you start at a previous level.  If my child is going to play games anyway, I’d much rather her choose one that teaches Christian values and Bible verses.
