It’s not that I don’t enjoy the occasional round of Mario Kart or a quality Guitar Hero battle, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. When I get sucked into a game you have to pry my clenching hands away from that controller. You could also probably lure me away with concert tickets or a cookie if the situation ever arises. That being said, when my friend Brian sent me this video over the holidays, I was partly confused but also amazed. It wasn’t just the concept that left me in fits of giggles, but the fact that a group of people spent serious time thinking this was a good idea. The music can also be described as the best-worst part of the experience.
The game is called Zoo Race. It’s a Christian video game about the racing of animals after they were saved from death on Noah’s Ark. Naturally, the animal people then have a dance party to some awesomely horrible country-rock 8 bit music. Did I mention Jesus is there?
I don’t want to ruin the magic of watching it for the first time, but this is how Brian set up Zoo Race – Noah’s Adventures, the game movie:
“I don’t know what kind of mood you’re in, but I couldn’t stop laughing when some family friends showed this to me earlier. It’s the opening cinema scene from a REALLY cheap game called ‘Zoo Race’ for PC which is Christian or something. Also, they show a montage of the game-play. Make sure you watch the whole thing.”
