We had a chance to ask him a few questions:

1) How long did it take you to make it through Saints of Virtue?
   Three weeks.

2) How old are you?

3) What are some things you liked about the game?
I liked the Realm of the Heart; it was fun getting squished by garbage, twice. (After I saved the game, of course.) The remarks made in the Gallery of Nothingness were great! I also enjoyed the enemies: they were not stupid, kept their distance (except for Fear), often surprised me, and required some effort to defeat. I really liked the ending. When Worldliness appeared in the window at the end and then turned away, my brother said, "Get back here, you coward. I've got a sword shooter."[I enjoyed the character. He has to be the world's greatest long jumper.]

4) What was the toughest part of the game?
    The Turnstile Maze with all the rooms--my head was spinning after two steps!

5) What was your favorite level?
    The Amphitheater of Apathy. I really enjoyed the room with the talk show hosts and the Gallery of Nothingness.

Have you been knocked off  your rocker by a temptation lately?  You know, something that you tried to resist but found yourself doing anyway?  If you’re a normal person you’ve experienced this episode of falling into sin over and over again.  It’s easy to forget that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against a much more sinister enemy.  Temptation, frustration, guilt, and depression are just a few of the schemes that our enemies use as weapons against us.  But God has given us something much more powerful.

Did you know that as a Christian you have access to a custom made suit of armor designed by the God of the universe?  Your suit of armor is custom tailored to fit YOU precisely and to help you overcome the spiritual battles of life.  Why don’t you try it on today?  It’s free!!

"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground , and after you have done everything to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.   In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests…"      EPHESIANS 6:13-18

Here’s some things in the game that should help you:
  > Remember that F7 will set you to auto-running…some of those corridors can be so long
  > The code numbers in the media maze…one’s on the ceiling by the hanging film and one’s behind a moving object…
  > In the first level of Apathy, The powerup for the sword can be found in the lowermost portion of the Gallery of Nothingness. (Big Hint: SEUTATS GNIVOM EHT RAEN MOOR A NI S’TI)
  > In the second level, one scroll is hidden "in an underwater jail".
