In this episode, Jefferson and the Resistance explore the vast tundra of the Snowmoors as they face the threat of a global catastrophe. Players will need all their courage and cleverness to uncover the secret of the Snowmoors while dealing with rogue automaton monsters, Academy Automicus agents and a cast of new characters that have their own plans.
The Companion Engines App sits alongside the game to provide study activities that explore the stories, contexts and meanings of the Scriptures. Through them, players are challenged to embrace the messages and find ways to incorporate it into their daily lives.
In addition, regular Parental emails help parents keep abreast of how their child is progressing in the game, offering great opportunities to discuss matters of faith and life in a way players can grasp and enjoy.
Tim Cleary, Founding Worldbuilder from Scarlet City Studios, explains, “It’s amazing to see the response from our players and their families! We set out to create a game experience that would retell the stories of scripture in a way that resonated with 21st century kids. That mission is far from over, but we are well on our way. Come and get lost in the Snowmoors!”
The Aetherlight: The Resistance Melts Down is available today, December 1.
