Played the demo chapter with my 8 year old son – he really liked it, great lessons along the way, should be played by adults to remind us of the journey!

Thank you I really like the game I know Im 34 but I have learned a lot even though the game is geared for kids it works for adults. I struggle with law over grace too much and the game made me think about a lot of things thank you for taking the time to make it.

I first heard about Bunyan and the book the previous semester when we had to talk about it in our English Literature class, and I fell in love with it instantly. I wrote my final essay on Pilgrim’s Progress as well. My point is that I was very interested in the story, and I have tried to gather as much information about it as possible ever since. I don’t know how I missed the fact that there’s an actual video game, but I’m very glad that I did find out about it eventually. For the record, I had never played video games before, ever, and I couldn’t understand what other people saw in them. But then I found out about your game and I just couldn’t resist- I had to try it. Every second of playing it was a delight, and it made me laugh from happiness, which I really wasn’t expecting. Praying for strength and using blessings during battles? Praying for strength and seeing it actually grow? Well, the same thing happens in real life, we just don’t see the strength bar at our feet, I guess. And it’s so well thought out! I have been telling so many people about it, all of which know how anti-video games I have been all this time. I will tell my professor too, certainly. And the graphics! Sometimes I just stay on one stage just to look at the graphics at the background – they fit the imagery of the book so completely!
In short, you’ve done an excellent job and I’m very grateful for it.
