A slapstick version of the three kings story. Many sidequests, February 3, 2016
by MathBrushThis game is a sequel to the first Bible Retold game. In it, you play as one of the three kings as you travel west, finding gold, frankincense, and myrrh, and visiting Jesus.
The game's take on the Bible is sort of a slapstick comedy. You have to impersonate priests, steal, dupe guards, etc.
The puzzles are varied and odd, and I had some trouble with the parser sometimes, especially during an complicated math problem involving an astrolabe and latitude calculations.
