Left Behind Licenses Big Huge Tech For RTS Sequel

Left Behind Licenses Big Huge Tech For RTS Sequel

Officials from Christian-themed game developer Left Behind Games announced that the company has signed a multi-year technology license with developer Big Huge Games (Rise of Nations).

In addition, the company also confirmed plans to leverage off of this newly licensed technology in developing the sequel to its recently shipped flagship title, Left Behind: Eternal Forces.

Left Behind: Eternal Forces, which shipped to retailers and inspirational book stores earlier this month, is set against the backdrop of a post-rapture world as players take up the fight against an encroaching and growing evil. The storyline is based on the Left Behind book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which has sold more than 63 million copies worldwide.

While based on Christian themes, the game recently came under fire from religious advocate group The Christian Alliance for Progress, who condemned the game for its content and themes which "stand in opposition to the ideology that the game and its companion book series seek to promote." The PC RTS has thus far received a lackluster 48% average rating on review aggregate website Metacritic.

Troy Lyndon, Left Behind Games' co-founder and CEO, commented: "We are confident our next generation real-time strategy game will include the best gaming experience for Left Behind fans, utilizing a great RTS engine and an award-winning development team as our technology partner."
