About the Project

1 of 500 is a story-based 3rd person adventure game in the time of Jesus, in which you as a fishing boy stand on the threshold to adulthood and are confronted with the big questions of life. While you have to master your own path and make difficult decisions, your path intersects with the most important story of all time: the story of Jesus of Nazareth. Immerse yourself in a strange world of bygone times. Discover and understand the culture, society, political and religious actors as well as the smouldering conflicts of this epoch. Let yourself be challenged to experience biblical history in its time from a new perspective. Closer. Deeper inside. More comprehensible and conflict-laden than ever before.

University Support

Scientific Elaboration

Our claim to reproduce the game world as faithfully as possible means that it is indispensable to rely on the support of experts in these fields of research. Therefore we are glad to count on the support of such experts at different universities nationally and internationally.
