Facebook users can now walk the in the footsteps of Jesus during his time on Earth with the new online game titled "Journey of Jesus: The Calling."

Lightside Games, the developer that launched social media game earlier this week, was also the creator of last year's popular game that featured a biblical theme the "Journey of Moses."

This time the company has chosen to use the New Testament as the game's backdrop and uses Jesus Christ as the main character.

"Both games immerse the player, and you are what you eat," said Brent Dusing, CEO of Lightside games in a press release referring to Journey of Moses. "While one game goes one direction, Journey of Jesus: The Calling players walk in the Messiah's steps, in an authentic experience of Israel in Christ's time."

The game features high quality graphics, an interesting soundtrack, simple, but effective gameplay, and the latest social media features, according to the company.

To play the game, Facebook users can simply type "Journey of Jesus: The Calling" into their search bar and fulfill the simple registration steps that come up next. The game is free and while playing it, FB users will be able to choose from different paths, explore intricate and intriguing game spaces, search for items and artifacts and overcome various obstacles.

Those playing will even have to deal with the politics of that time, including those included in the religious landscape and everyday life of that society.

"Players want a game that's more than a game, we know that well," Dusing said. "One way we keep fun and interest high is to release new chapters-new ideas and information and challenges by the week."
