M.I.S.S. #300 – The Bible – "Thou Shall Not Try To Sell My Word on Steam To Try And Make A Fortune!"
Hey, hello, everybody Welcome Back to another first play on launch day guys today were looking at the Bible, thats right, a digital Recreation of the Bible. In kinetic novel form, read through and say passages in any order with an original soundtrack or listen through uh. The Greatest Story Ever Told in audiobook form featuring an extensive trivia section to find out how well you really know the stories of old and new. Now guys this game just came out this morning or this application, if you would, it already has three reviews of one of them, is mine and by looking at the thumbnail, you probably already know what I think of the Bible. So how could I be putting down something so pure, something so honest and amazing, like the Bible, something worshiping our creator above? How could I possibly make this a maggot infested stinky? What the hell is wrong with me. Well lets go ahead and take a look at. Why I think the Bible on scene is terrible, Ill show you why, for this Baxter 99., all right welcome back everybody. The volume is through the room. It is super loud, so lets go ahead and click on my preferences. Yeah. Let me turn this music volume. All the way down, thats obnoxious, like what kind of what kind of music is that thats terrible. I hate that I dont know about you guys, but that was just noise, not music yeah. I would change this to noise volume Im just saying so.
We have basic options like window and full screen. We have disabled left or right for the rollback slide and we can skip unseen text after choices transitions. We can increase and decrease our Tech speed and turn up and down the page volume, and then we can mute everything. Okay, when we look about the about section, it just says contact us at this long email address or follow us on Facebook, at Bible, games, page Etc. We are working on. I am proud of this product as a 1.0 release, but there are a variety of planned features for the project moving forward. Firstly, getting the product into more devices, translating the work into a multitude of languages. Bonus features such as a gallery mode where the original painting of the uh significant biblical events can be viewed. All of this is being accomplished with funds arrays from the product cell and from the support of our followers. So when we go to help it kind of tells us how to skip through the pages and some shortcuts that kind of thing and we can load wherever we left off. But I want to go ahead and show you guys here guys when we go to start. We dont have any customization, for you know the color of the page or the darkness of the page or the font, or anything like that. But lets just go into the Old Testament here and start off right with a Genesis.
Shall we chapter one? So I kind of dont like the way this is all laid out to me. This looks really sloppy, but maybe its just me Genesis chapter one lets go ahead and listen to this for a minute, the beginning in the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth. Now the Earth was formless and empty Darkness was on the surface of the deep Gods. Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters. The first day light. God said: let there be light and there was light. God saw the light and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness, God called the light day and the Darkness he called night. There was evening and there was mourning one day the second day firmament. God said: let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters. God made the expanse okay, so lets go ahead and go back there. You notice how whoevers reading this, I assume its somebody that the developer, probably you notice, how, when hes reading the Bible uh and he was reading like chapter one or whatever, Genesis. Okay, lets, go ahead and mute. All right lets go ahead and go back. Lets save it and then lets return right here, so he was reading it and I guess he did an okay job of reading it, but you notice how he like almost it sounds like he mocks Gods.
Word like he said, and God said, and there was light, God saw the light and he saw it was good. God divided the life from the darkness and then he comes out here. God said: let there be an expansion, your immunity Waters, I cant even do so. I cant even pronounce these words like he was like the voice he was using for God, God said: let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters. But to me it almost sounded bad. It almost sounded like he was mocking Gods voice. I dont know it just sounded to me. It was super cringe uh. I dont know if youre gon na read a Bible like at least make God sound as good as you sound reading it not make him sound. Inferior and thats just the feeling I got when I first listened to it, but remember guys theres only one version of this Bible in this application right now, and only if we go back guys and we go back and go back again and we quit. Yes, we want to quit when we go back here guys. We only have this available in English, full audio subtitles and everything like that. But the only version here is like the new English uh version thats it. So there is no King James version. If you want to listen to like this, any other version of the Bible, youd be out of luck right now, and the game comes in at a regular price tag of 15 US dollars its also only available on Steam, and you can see here Ive already, given The game review just a few moments ago, actually and already 16 people have found my review helpful, where I basically showed people in this review that you can get a much more comprehensive version of the Bible right here, simply at www.
bible.com. So when we come to this website, guys remember this is available in apps. You can get an app for your phone for your tablet or you can get an app for you know the PC or whatever, and you can do this on your computer, your phone, your tablet, this at bible.com, has more than 2400 versions of the Bible and its Also available in more than sixteen hundred languages right now also many of these different uh versions of the Bible are available in voice. So you see all the different English versions and everything like that, but here guys lets go ahead and say: lets click on read the Bible. Now you can make it your Bible, you can make an account. You can install the app you see. This has already been downloaded and used more than 541 a million times. This has a verse of the day, uh right here on the website. But if we go into read the Bible here guys – and we can click right here and we can see all the different versions there are and we can see that all these different versions have a voiceover. So lets just go ahead and do the King James version right here and lets, listen to it and see if theres a difference. The Book of Genesis, chapter 1. in the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth and the Earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the spirit of God, moved upon the face of the waters, and God said let There be light, and there was light, and God saw the light that it was good and God divided the light from the darkness and God called the light day in the darkness.
He called night and the evening in the morning were the first day and God said: let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters. So, as you can see guys to me this, you know just hearing the voice for this. If you want to have it read to you, I would much prefer this bible.com version and Im sure theres other free versions of the Bible, not just bible.com, but this is the one I just simply found in a 20. Second, Google search also notice that we can change the font to four different fonts. We can add footnotes and numbers and tiles. We can change this to make it bigger or smaller fonts. So we can read it easier. So this version at bible.com guys is completely free. Its already available for your tablets for your phone, like I said, or per PC this at the website, or the app, has tons of options that the steam version doesnt have not been mentioning all the you know, over a thou over 1600 languages and over twenty four Hundred versions available uh for you to read or list into you, so this is uh at least a hundred times better and its completely free. So I just wanted to go ahead and show you guys this Ill have the link Down Below. In my description like to me, it just makes me feel like you know, I know that effort was probably put into this by the developer and Ive said that Ill never make a uh.
You know like something uh steam game, that I feel like a lot of efforts been put into as I missed video, but theres always an exception to the rule, and the Bible has proved to me – and it just gives me a gut feeling to this developer and I could be wrong, but my gut tells me that this developer is putting this on Steam only to try to make a quick Fortune now. I know he says that you know I read an article. That said, he was going to use the funds that he makes from the Bible on Steam. He was going to use that to try to add more versions of the Bible and you know add more languages as well, but I bet you lets just say that he was to sell lets just say he was to sell 500 000 copies of the Bible on Steam, which is certainly possible – I mean the Bible – is the most popular book in the world and I think he sees the potential by putting the Bible on seam and I think thats why he put all the effort into this. But lets just say he sold 500 000 copies and lets say he made a quick 100 million dollars or whatever 100 million dollars. Do you really believe that this guy is going to put every penny of that into making this app the better? Or do you believe that hes going to be rich living in a big house and have cars, and everything like that come on? I think you and I both know the truth to that question, so I firmly believe guys that the motivation for this guy putting the Bible on Steam isnt just spread the word I think hes trying to spread his wallet and make a quick Fortune thats.
Just what I believe guys and I mean if you make your own choice, I cant tell you what to do, but I know if I was wanting to either listen to the Bible or read the Bible. I know which one I would choose and uh. I would definitely wouldnt pay VP in this guy 33 off at under 10 bucks or 15 regular price, when I could get the Bible on this website here, completely free and its at least a hundred times better, with way more options way more versions, available, uh and To me it sounds like a much better voice. Reading of the Bible, so let me know what you guys think down in the comments below. I would love to know what you guys think, which version would you choose uh? Do you guys agree with me that uh this developer is putting the Bible on Steam more out of greed than he is? I mean I dont honestly know really only God above I guess knows his true motivation for putting this on Steam. But if I had to guess, I would believe his motivation is much more selfish and greedy than it is to spread the gospel uh. If he, if he was really motivated to spread the gospel, he would have put the time in and made this available for free on Steam uh. Rather than trying to make money and say, oh its, so I can get more. You know languages and blah blah blah yeah.
I think hes completely motivated by money and thats. Why hes selling it on Steam, if he wasnt, motivated by money, guys he would have put this up on Steam for free Im just saying and then he would have maybe took donations hey if you want to help me, get more versions. Lets do some donations or whatever so to the developer. If you arent, motivated by the the lust and The Lure of money, why not make it completely free and then take donations from Believers to use the app on Steam and then use that donation money which might turn out to be a lot more? You never know but use the donation, money to uh pay for more versions and more languages, and all that but uh yeah. The fact that youre asking money for it 15 right out of the get go. I think that tells us all what we need to know and thats why your Bible on Steam is a Miss, because I think this is one hell of a greedy and a kind of a sick, uh application to be watching on Steam. I mean I understand it. We all like money, but I think you are motivated by the wrong reasons with the wrong app and I think the good one you know I think the Lord above would probably be pretty disappointed if uh and he does know the truth right I mean he knows The truth hes the only one that knows the truth, so yeah Im, judging you pretty firmly but Im a fellow human just like you are and uh only only him above knows your motivation right.
You and him both know, and we can only guess, but my guess is its greed more than it is to spread the word again thats. Why you make a mess, Mr Bible games? Let me know what you guys think down in the comments below, though I would love to know what you guys think uh lets not try to Flame each other down in the comments and stuff like that. Lets try not to Flame atheists or Believers, or you know anything like that. Lets not be flaming Mormons or anything lets just uh. Keep it civil uh, not blame anybody, but just let me know what you think down in the comments below.
