Full Disclosure: I’m a Christian. Southern Baptist, to be specific.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I have to admit I opened up Rejoice: The Gospel of Matthew with a little trepidation. As far as the popular culture goes, Christianity usually ends up on the short end of a very big stick. Seriously, other than Art Mullen from Justified (watch that show if you don’t already), when has anything related to the Christian faith not been tied to wild-eyed fanatics, all-out hypocrites, the Catholic sex scandal or someone who has been ‘misled’ by one of the three and just needs a worldly friend to guide them? So I would be lying if I didn’t say that as I started a journey that would take me the better part of two hours, a small part of me was waiting for the other shoe to drop and make me regret downloading it.
But, I was wrong. Thank God in Heaven, I was wrong.
Stop me if you've heard this one before. You wake up in an insane asylum. Trapped in your own nightmares, you begin losing hope as your own mind drives you insane. Your friends are on the way to spring you out, but your psychosis has other plans. That's the basic setup for a promising visual novel being developed in on the other side of the world. After finding out about Resonance via my stalking of Cyanide Tea (sorry ladies), I was pleased to be able to talk to them about their project.
