Corvallis, OR (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
GraceWorks Interactive is pleased to announce the release of Spanish Language Version of The Interactive Parables, Las Parábolas Interactivas. This is the first Spanish-language release for the company and is set to challenge and expand the existing market by appealing to the rapidly growing number of spanish-speaking Christians in the United States and around the world. The English language version is currently available in religious bookstores nationwide and both versions can be purchased online at:. http://www.GraceWorksInteractive.com or http://www.ChristianGamesNOW.com.
Interactive Parables has been Family Approved by The Dove Foundation and also received the Family Friendly Gaming seal of approval. The Spanish language version was made possible through the translations efforts of volunteer translators Alejandro Garcia-Flores, Alfonso M. Camacho Ortiz, and Jennifer Perry.
"Too many companies, Christian or not, neglect the Spanish-speaking market. This often leads to fewer sales and a diminished experience for players," says translator, Alfonso M. Camacho.
Las Parábolas Interactivas joins a growing group of religious software for the Spanish-speaking community. Other notable releases include the Bible Encyclopedia's iLumina: Vive la Biblia, and the Beginners Bible series, which is also available in English and Spanish. Las Parábolas Interactivas marks the first time that an American game localized for that market.
"It makes both spiritual and moral sense to create a Spanish-language version of Interactive Parables," adds Producer and Owner of GraceWorks Interactive, Tim Emmerich. "We were blessed by the hard work of our translation team and look forward to introducing interactive Christian gaming to new audiences."
A 3D World Spanning 20 Levels with 24 Lessons from the Parables
In the game, the player experiences a 3D world filled with keys, power-up stars, fiery darts, ice to slide on, zeppelins to fly on, and more. While navigating the world and collecting items and points, the player is answering questions based on the lesson chosen. This full integration of the learning and fun experience is a powerful combination. For a list of lessons, see http://InteractiveParables.com and http://www.interactiveparables.com/ParabolasInteractivas.htm
Las Parábolas Interactivas uses the original lessons crafted and guided by W. Gregg Strawn, a minister in Corvallis, Oregon, for 25 years. Given Gregg's experience, the Bible content is rock solid.
