Vatican Releases 'Follow Jesus Christ Go,' a Smartphone Game Based on Pokémon Go
By Tyler O'Neil October 25, 2018

Last week in Rome, the Vatican released a Pokémon Go-style app inviting young people to celebrate the Roman Catholic faith. Critics may call it a distraction from the clerical abuse scandal, and perhaps it is. Will the app make Catholicism more relevant for young people, or is it a painfully desperate ploy unlikely to have the same appeal as pocket monsters?

Britain's The Daily Mail reported on the app, with George Martin calling the Catholic developers "canny" and quipping, "Gotta catch John Paul!" — a clever twist on the Pokémon slogan "Gotta catch 'em all!"

Rather than catching pocket monsters, the new app's users will recruit saints by visiting different real-world locations and racking up four different resources: spirituality, bread, water, and currency. Each player has an evangelization team featuring famous Bible and historical figures such as Moses, Mother Teresa, and perhaps even the Virgin Mary.

Canny Catholics hoping to get children interested in religion have created a new game based on Pokemon Go - where players can hunt down and capture saints.

Follow Jesus Christ Go! from Fundación Ramón Pané was released last week in Rome and uses the same format as the Pokemon Go - but with a Christian twist.

The new religion-based app uses a similar mechanism to the massively popular Japanese pocket monster game, but substitutes Pokemon for saints.

Sounds like a interesting idea, except hope nobody walks off a cliff playing it.

No English version yet and the youtubes are in Spanish.
