5 Loaves~2 Fishes
 is about the John 6:1-15 story of Jesus Feeding the 5000 -- the only miracle found in all four Gospels.  It is a retelling of the story in the guise of a game. Students navigate a boat with Peter across the Sea to Bethsaida where they must find and convince their "Uncle Reuben" to go listen to Jesus. Students meet, hear, and are personally addressed Jesus. Reuben believes and then invites the player to go fishing on the Sea where they encounter a quiz about the story and a reinforcing music video.  There are several "game-y" challenges to complete in order to advance through the story, and at times the game takes over to tell the story. Challenges include finding and convincing the Uncle, and finding the fish and loaves. The story-game takes about 25-30 minutes depending on ability.


"5 Loaves" was created using a game landscape similar to the one used in "Faith Through the Roof" software. Both feature a boat ride with Peter, a village with things to do, and Jesus to be found and spoken with.

Age Range: Primarily for older children. Navigating the game is too difficult for 1st and 2nd graders, but they will enjoy the story and wandering through the village to find their Uncle and Jesus as long as someone else does most of the navigating. 

System: Windows 7, 8, and 10 -only.
