Take part in developing one of the world’s first Bible games!
A closed beta is an earlier version of a game released to a restricted group to get valuable feedback for further improvement.
The closed beta was launched on Feb 17 exclusively to the members of BUK Youth Club!

GAMEPLAY IN UNITS
Organize yourselves into “units” of 2-7 people (5 people is recommended).
Just 1 PC needed per unit. Everyone else participates through a mobile app. PC and mobile players can switch roles at any time.
We recommend having at least one person who is used to gaming per unit.
There are 3 chapters in the closed beta and each chapter takes 2 to 2.5 hours to play. There will be a suggestion to take a break halfway through the chapter.
We recommend gathering at home where you can have good conversations in a quiet setting. Connect to a TV screen and good speakers so everyone can follow along!
Solve quests with your unit while exploring the beautiful open world of ancient Jerusalem and experiencing Bible events firsthand.
Most of the game is not time-based. Take the time you need to explore, talk to characters and find hidden notes throughout the city. All notes collected can be accessed in Hector’s Archive on the mobile app.
Work your way up the leaderboard by completing quests, scoring well on unit games and collecting facts.
You can view the leaderboard on the mobile app. Compete with other units worldwide or locally to get the most points!
You will likely experience errors, called bugs, since the game is not completely finished.
All bugs should be reported on feedback.biblex.io
Besides reporting bugs, we welcome suggestions for new features and ideas for further development of the game past the beta stage.
Use the boards on feedback.biblex.io to send us your comments!

Tip: If you’re not located in one of the countries where Shadow Tech is available, it can still be possible to use the service, but we recommend testing this in advance. *Only one PC is needed for every 2-7 people in a unit.
