How It Begins

The game begins in a large, grassy field, surrounded by hedgerows. In front of you are a crowd of people, all terribly hungry. As Jesus Christ, you are to feed the people with five loaves and two fishes, as in the Bible story. You are carrying nothing and wearing simple robes and sandals.

A stone tablet drops down from above, missing you by just a few inches.

Notable Features

  • The PC is Jesus Christ.
