The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) announced the launch of a new video game on Friday which has a “catechetical value” for kids. St. Paul is the protagonist in the three-dimensional game promoted by the bishops.

The introduction of the video game was so novel that even the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano picked up on the CBCPnews report announcing the initiative, which was created for the Filipino bishops’ Episcopal Commission on Catechesis and Catholic Education.  Continue reading here.

    “Based on Pope Benedict XVI’s Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paolo’s Journey is about an adventure of a young boy who gets lost in the forest while chasing his kitten, then is trapped in a mysterious cave.

    In order to escape the cave and finish the game, the player has to collect scrolls around the level which contain possible answers and give the player strength to the questions given at the exit of the level.

    The questions on each cave represent Easy, Medium and Difficult levels based on the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments and Christian Living.

    For each correct answer, a piece of land will be shown to form a bridge where the player can move on to retrieve the three keys. It is only after retrieving the keys that the path to exit the level will be available.”
