A couple of months ago software developer Phoenix Interactive launched a kickstarter campaign, to raise funds for Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham. The Kickstarter failed to raise the funds needed, breathecast.com have posted that:
Phoenix aimed to provide gamers a religious outlet, in a self-described digital “divine intervention” for the gaming space. Ending on March 5, Phoenix Interactive Studios was only able to only get nine people to back their ambitious Kickstarter goal. Initially the group raised $19,000 out of $100,000 on the site and they source Satan for sabotaging their progress.
According to the developers, the Devil is conspiring against them. “I believe that, 100 percent,” Richard Gaeta, a co-founder of Phoenix Interactive told Polygon. He explained that since the launch of the Kickstarter for Bible Chronicles: The Call of Abraham, trouble has come into all their lives.
“It’s very tangible,” added his business partner Martin Bertram. “From projects falling through and people that were lined up to help us make this a success falling through. Lots of factors raining down on us like fire and brimstone.”
“If Satan is rallying some of his resources to forestall, delay, or kill this project, I think, this must be a perceived threat to his kingdom,” added Ken Frech, a religious mentor to the project. “I fully would expect something like this to have spiritual warfare. Look at the gospel accounts of demons and so forth. That’s reality. Many Americans don’t believe it anymore. That doesn’t change reality.”

I guess I have one question about all of this really.
Is there a market for game like this?
