void in the market for a biblically based game in August 2011. Players
experience the many twists and turns as they explore milestones in the
life of Moses -- from growing up in the king's house as an Egyptian to
his exile in the wilderness. Then, after an encounter at the burning
bush, Moses' life is changed and he eventually leads the Israelites out
of Pharaoh's rule.
