Intelligent Media and Design (IMO) seeks to combine the Bible with "edutainment", where the hybrid of mass market gameplay appeal is blended with the important lesson of our protagonist, David.

Teens need a medium-specific vehicle for recognizing the values of self, spirituality, and righteousness. The narrative of this game mirrors the issues and difficult decisions they must make in their own life.

Our single goal is to reach our audience by providing biblical truths that counter secular driven content. IMD's goal is to publish "The Anointed" video game and give the Church another tool to deliver scripture, while providing players additional forms of content that will entertain & occupy many peer discussions.

The Anointed: this is the game young people and parents have wanted, and even more important - need!
