A few Dominican friars in priestly formation at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington D.C. have created a browser video game called Passiontide: The Game.

The one-level game in the style of video games from 1990s has been created to help promote a Passiontide service, which will be put on by the Dominicans at a parish in Washington D.C. on March 12th.

The game was the brainchild of Dominicans Fr. Thomas More Garrett and Br. Athanasius Murphy, a student brother preparing for priestly ordination. A few Dominican brothers did the technical development, and brother who is a former RCA recording artist drew from Dominican chant melodies to compose the background music for the game.

It’s tons of fun and only takes a few minutes to get through the level, so give it a play!
