I love a good video game, and after spending an afternoon gardening, I needed a few hours of fun and relaxation. One of my favorite genres of computer games is adventure games because they keep my interest. A little bit of fighting is fine, but I don’t want a game that’s based entirely on war and violence. I was sent a complimentary sample from BuzzPlant of a new game called The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance to play. You can play free now and purchase additional episodes in the future to continue the game.
The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance
Once a beautiful land, Aethasia is now covered by a sickly pervasive fog that corrupts everything it touches. But all is not lost. Rumors are spreading of a fledgling Resistance, who have the courage and audacity to try and restore Aethasia to its former glory, and to reinstate the The Great Engineer back to the throne of Aethasia. And that Resistance needs you!
Engage with the Resistance as they begin their immense task of restarting the Great Engines to drive back the fog and find the Great Engineer. This adventure will take you throughout the entire land of Aethasia, from No Man’s Landing, through the Snowmoors and Giant Seed Forest, right to the Ends of the Earth Falls!
The Aetherlight is designed to engage pre-teens with the Bible. The game is allegorical and is closely linked to the Biblical narrative, however, does not use Biblical names, places, and language that may confuse or alienate some players. The player will have the opportunity to partake in exercises that link the game story of Aethasia with the Bible text and their own lives through what the story calls the Resistance Academy.
The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance is a fun adventure game intended for tweens and teens. It has a steampunk feel to it which will definitely be popular with the kids but is based on the principals of the Bible which is a definite plus in my book. The gameplay is sort of a cross between a puzzle game where you need to find clues and a roleplaying game where you battle opponents and talk to people in the game. You are sent on different quests which involve uncovering information and helping people. I had a great time playing the game and moving between different towns to complete the missions I was sent on. I definitely think this is a great game for tweens and teens (and even adults) to enjoy.
