The Adventist Church recently launched a gaming app called "Heroes: The Bible Trivia Game." On March 22, the developer celebrated its milestone after gathering 500,000 downloads.
Heroes has worked with Hope Channel and Novo Tempo in Brazil since the launch of the app in 2021.
Heroes: The Bible Trivia Game
Heroes' popularity among gamers and biblical academics has skyrocketed in the short time since its publication.
According to Adventist News, the app is a great resource for introducing people to the tales and teachings of the Bible since it celebrates biblical heroes through hard questions and fun gameplay.
Adventist Church's Department of Communication Director Williams Costa, Jr. was enthusiastic about the occasion. He said it was amazing to think that half a million downloads of Heroes is not the end but a huge step towards keeping the system going.
The developers of the Heroes app highlighted its accomplishments as the Adventist Church celebrated the program's second anniversary on March 25.
Heroes debuted in 2021 and have partnered with the Hope Channel and the Brazilian news outlet Novo Tempo. Heroes also ran a 2022 Brazilian online tournament for app players to compete in for a chance to appear in person on TV Novo Tempo's special Heroes episode of "Bom de Bíbla."
Biblical Question-and-answer Application
Hope Channel's biblical question-and-answer app, created by Pastor Sam Neves, associate director of the Communication department at the Adventist World Church, has also gained popularity for its instructional value.
Neves maintains that Heroes' theological allusions make it a worthwhile instructional tool.
"The player follows a sequence of play and learning while playing, so he knows the biblical story without necessarily having to read it," Neves told the news outlet.
The game's future is being envisioned by the app's development team, which hopes to make it more participatory by adding new topics and new protagonists.
