An uneven retelling of the Loaves and Fishes with a buffoonish God, February 3, 2016
Biblical games are always interesting in how they play out. Tenth Plague, about the plagues in Egypt, takes a dark and bitter look at God; Cana according to Micah takes a thoughtful approach; and this game takes a goofy and buffoonish look at God.

You are Jesus, and you have to feed the 5 thousand. To get the 5 loaves and two fish in the story, you have to collect them yourself. Throughout the game, God will accidentally hurt people, send you text-like messages, joke about sex, etc.

The puzzles are a bit uneven. At first, they are mostly standard adventure puzzles, but then they enter a weird mathematical-ish realm where you have to use arithmetic progressions to find houses corresponding to verses in the Bible.
