Supposedly Boston-based Prayer Works Interactive announced its Mass: We Pray church mini-game compilation today, a smart send-up of religious-themed gaming, complete with motion-sensing Cross Controller and wireless Kneeler accessory. I mean, this is a joke, right?
Yes, it must be. Playing Sign of the Cross, Holy Water-sprinkling, Collection-taking and Holy Communion-offering mini-games may sound like the content one would find in the average Wii mini-game comp, but the most obvious sign that this is a parody is the core premise. Mass: We Pray pitched as a "revolutionary videogame that allows families to go to church every day" is a clear giveaway.
Go to church every day? No one does that! Certainly not for fun!
If we did have faith that Mass: We Pray was an actual product—like the more believable Bible Navigator X—and was releasing Easter 2010, we'd definitely want to learn more at the official web site. Instead, we're just trying to figure out who's responsible for this.
