PLAY NOW: iPad or Facebook
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – April 17, 2013 – Lightside has launched an iPad version of Light the Way: The Bible, the official game of the record-setting History Channel miniseries The Bible. The first Christian game available for the iPad, Light the Way: The Bible reaches the millions of people worldwide who play online on that mobile device.
“With Light the Way: The Bible on iPad we piggyback on the tremendous, global success of The Bible series and create a fun, engaging way for people of faith to spread the word,” said Lightside Founder and CEO Brent Dusing. “Mobile devices are the fastest-growing access point to the web and outside of church are the most prolific way for Christians to enjoy community.”
Light the Way: The Bible weaves actual scenes from The Bible series into the game. Adults and children search for hidden objects in illustrations of biblical stories with images and music from show. Players also can solve puzzles and search for differences in side-by-side scene comparisons. And they can keep score and share their progress.

“This is where the world meets the web and where Christians need to meet the world,” Dusing said.
Committed to creating high-quality games that communicate biblical stories in innovative ways, Lightside already is known for the Facebook games Journey of Moses and Journey of Jesus: The Calling, which have attracted close to five million players. And with Light the Way: The Bible, Lightside takes the next step in its mission.
“We make high-quality games that carry a powerful message that people of all ages enjoy,” Dusing said. “By using the world's largest technology platforms, like iPad and Facebook, our games touch people’s lives all over the globe.”
Lightside translates its games into multiple languages often reaching countries where the Gospel is seldom heard. As an example, there are only 70,000 Christians in Turkey, yet more than 100,000 people in that country have played Lightside’s games.
“We hear from players all the time, telling us, ‘It helps me be a better mom.’ and ‘It’s wonderful to see games for believers,’” Dusing said.
Those accolades have been echoed by well-known endorsers:
