A brand-new digital evangelism tool aimed at reaching the world’s 2.7 billion gamers
Heroes 2: The Bible Trivia Game is a free app developed by Hope Channel to share the Three Angels’ Message with gamers and young people around the world. The app will be available on March 25th for Android and iOS on popular app stores.
Players start their journey with Adam and Eve in Genesis—the first heroes—and end in Revelation with John, the Son of Thunder. As these heroes ask factual questions about their lives, 12 per round, players accumulate “experience points”. The more experience points a player has; the more heroes are unlocked. The questions increase in difficulty as the game progresses and players can challenge their family and friends simply sharing a link at the end of each round.
Pastor Sam Neves, the project’s director, believes that videogames are a great tool to creatively communicate the Gospel with technology; a well-thought-out strategy to reach young people in a secularised culture. “The real challenge is that young people today know more about the comics stories than the Bible stories. Therefore, Heroes was born, to encourage them to familiarise themselves with the fascinating stories of the Bible, and to discover they are called to be God’s heroes today, to become Christ’s witnesses.”
“From David, the giant slayer, John, the son of thunder, Samson, the legend, to Joseph, the dreamer; these characters introduced in the game are examples of courage and biblical masculinity. And Esther, the queen of courage, Ruth, the wise widow, and Mary Magdalene, nicknamed ‘Tomb Raider’, are our ‘wonder women’ and they teach important lessons to girls,” says Sam Neves.
The game will be released in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French, and more languages will be added shortly. However, the game can be pre-ordered already on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

A rising market
The online gaming market grew considerably during the pandemic of Covid19, reaching 2.7 billion global users by the end of 2020 1. Among different game genres, Bible trivia games are getting more attention, like Heroes the Game, launched in 2013 as a pioneer Christian game, that paved the way for many other projects and developments. From the date it was released, the game generated over 10,000 minutes of interaction with its users. It is expected that Heroes 2: The Bible Trivia Game, will carry the torch!
