Adam's Venture Chronicles
Shame its a pile of junk. As a devout atheist I couldn't care less where source material comes from , its the end product that matters. A horror style adventure based on the old testament would have been/could be interesting me thinks?
Adam's Venture Chronicles
@RyoHazuki As a devout Christian, I'd say that could work, at least from an adventure angle. Getting horror in there would be kind of tough. Maybe something along the lines of Elder Scrolls but taking place in Israel, right when all the tribes are splitting up?
I just think that those who would be interested in making a biblically-based game are either other Christians or people who want to make some adventure-exploration type game (oh look! The Bible is actually a treasure map leading us to... [insert Biblical artifact here] ). The former wants to focus on the source material, and won't care all too much about making the game far too entertaining, and the latter won't care enough about the source material and just use it as a plot-point in what would otherwise be a completely unrelated game.

The visuals (created with Unreal Engine 3) are on par with the best-looking adventure titles including indie-darling Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. The two weaknesses in this department are the character models and animations, which can be stiff. Though not bad enough to be distracting, the environments are clearly the high point here.

Celebrities bristling about being called "nepo babies" could learn from William Henry Draper III, one of Silicon Valley's premier venture capitalists who has recognized his family's close ties and their influence on the family's successes.
"Networks are critical to the successful venture capitalist," Draper, who cofounded elite investment projects like Sutter Hill Ventures, wrote in his 2012 semi-autobiographical book, "The Startup Game."
Draper's venture-capital career began in the 1950s at his father's own trailblazing firm, Draper, Gaither, and Anderson, an early entrant in a new field. He wrote that he joined it, in part, for the "unique opportunity to learn from a master." Striking out with his peers in the next decade, he went on to invest in early IT-infrastructure companies including Kasper Instruments.
As evidenced on the series, the family's scions tend to wear their legacy as a badge of honor. Tim's children Jesse Draper, who leads Halogen VC, and Adam Draper, who is behind Boost VC, are even identified as "4th generation venture capitalists" in their public bios.
Tim, who followed in his father's footsteps as a young adult after getting in some early practice with his family investing firm, cofounded the blockbuster venture firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson in 1985, when he was in his early 20s. DFJ had more than 900 investments, according to PitchBook, including in companies such as Tesla and Baidu. DFJ's founding partners have all left, and the firm became known as Threshold Ventures in 2019, Axios reported at the time. 041b061a72
