You Can Now Buy The Infamous Wisdom Tree Games On Steam

In the late '80s and '90s, a company called Wisdom Tree released several games that were famous for three things: Being overtly religious and trying to teach basic stories from the Bible to kids, being blatant copies of other games, and never being licensed by Nintendo on their systems. Some of them fared better than others design-wise, but none of them were truly memorable as great games. 

Despite that, they've gained a bit of a reputation with the retro gaming crowd, and now Publisher Piko Interactive released the games on Steam last week for everyone to judge. The Spiritual Warfare & Wisdom Tree Collection includes four games from the Christian developer: Spiritual Warfare (inspired by Zelda), Bible Adventures (which itself includes Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, and David and Goliath, all fairly average-to-bad Mario clones), Exodus (a Boulder Dash clone), and Joshua and the Battle of Jericho (a Crystal Mines clone). You can grab the whole thing for $8, if you're curious.

This isn't the first time Wisdom Tree has popped up on Steam: Super 3-D Noah's Ark (a hilariously obvious Doom clone) is also available on the service for $5.
