The gaming industry received its fair share of controversial video games over the years, and developer SimulaM and publisher PlayWay's I am Jesus Christ is definitely one of those. The studio announced it back in December 2019 with its first trailer, and it instantly received mixed feedback on the depiction of religious figures and such. SimulaM didn't stop there, and now they are back with another title, Noah's Ark.
If you are not familiar with Noah's story, he was a messenger who God told to build a massive ship to accommodate a male and female gender of every animal he ever finds. This is to save him, the people who believed in God, and the animals from the great flood, and leave those who didn't believe behind. Noah's Ark gives players the opportunity to build the ship, gather animals, hunt them down, and do whatever it takes to survive the flood. The game adopts the same art style of the original title, and it honestly suits this type of titles.
Noah's Ark still doesn't have a release date as of the time of writing, and neither does I am Jesus Christ. The latter so far managed to accumulate massive amount of coverage, with over 50,000 people adding the title to their Steam's wishlist. Noah's Ark is already available on Steam for players to add it to their wishlist as well.
In the meantime, make sure to check out the newly announced title's trailer, featuring a ship in a work-in-progress state, hording animals to get aboard the ship, and more.
