Digital Praise, the company behind Christian-centric games like Guitar Praise and Dance Praise has just announced it's merging with Left Behind Games, which ... well, makes the Left Behind games. Among the reasons Digital Praise was such a desirable partner, Left Behind Games CEO Troy Lyndon cited "strong brands and products" -- and this whole time we thought lying was a sin.

Kidding aside, we totally get the impulse to want to create games that are free of the sex and violence that permeates the market today. Our hope is just that, as a result of this merger, Christians who want to play games that celebrate their faith won't have to put up with third-rate experiences.
