ReCreationals

Alternative Biblical History

There is a wide variety of Alternative History SF and games derived thereof (i.e. Axis won the WWII, Chinese capitalized on gun powder, etc).

There is also SimEarth where one can play dice with the planet and see what develops.

And finally, there's a new trend of games for the righteous.

Combine these techniques for ReCreationals: a game that lets you see how the Bible would have turned out differently based on changes in certain pivotal events.

Examples range from God taking a day off midweek to Lot's wife not turning around, to Pharaoh giving up earlier.

       I'm hoping there would be a gimick in here beyond "Woah! a dialog of the toaster phone" because that just doesn't do much for anyone... and people who would want it only would for the sheer novelty... which would disappear as soon as something new comes along...   

       Then there's the awful name!?...   

       // God taking a day off... Lot's wife not turning around... Pharaoh giving up earlier //   

       As well as that, who care's about Lot?... are you saying those are the extremes of your biblical power?!... I'm only speaking for myself here... but I'd want the big events, and couldn't care less about when or why Lots wife ended up going off with that cabel guy (or whatever the story is)...

       You want the Sea not parting? I was just giving examples.

       People would pay top dollar for your solutions to chaos theory and the like.
