Mass: We Pray Game Uses Cross-Shaped Remote

We have to ask: is the church simulator game Mass: We Pray for real, or someone's parody of the Nintendo Wii? Still, given that there are a few Christian-based games on the market today, it's hard not to think that this game is for real. "A family shouldn’t have to wait until Sunday to worship the Lord," the official website even reads. "Now you can go to church every day without leaving your home."

The game is brought to you by Prayer Works Interactive, and allows gamers to perform baptisms, Holy Orders, conduct the choir, attend confession, and even anoint the sick. There's more than 24 "unique and exhilarating" Ceremonies to perform the company claims, and to make it all happen, the game incorporates motion control by using a cross-shaped remote and some kind of balance-board-like bench to kneel upon (the KNEELER).

Based on the video, we're not exactly sure what's receiving the wireless signals or actually processing the game itself; there's no Nintendo Wii in sight. No matter the source, Prayer Works Interactive said that families shouldn't be scared of videogames. "Just like television and radio before that, it's not the medium that's dangerous; it's how you use it. Mass: We Pray is proof that videogames can be used to spread the Good Word," the company said.

Mass: We Pray is expected to hit the market on Easter 2010. Given the track record of Christian-based games, it may have a hard time--if in fact this game is the real deal--earning revenue in outlets such as GameStop and Best Buy.

    My first reaction to the title of the article was that "We Pray Game" was a rip on Chinese accent. I'm going to Hell.

    This MUST be the stupidest Wii game EVER! You may as well have donated the money used to buy this cr@ppy game for a good cause (ie. cancer research, food bank,etc).

    PS: I have nothing against Christianity or any other religion.

    Somebody elsewhere brought it up that this might somehow be viral marketing related to Dante's Inferno.

    It's not even real.
    The purpose of the church is to be amongst other believers, not artificial programs that look like cartoon characters and act the same way; that shout 'hallelujah' or something everytime you swing the cross in the air!
