Yup. They range from creative to borderline mental. Basicly the first one if I remember correctly is a teenager who downloads demons and fights archangels or some shit. Later games are about fighting the jewish god and resurrecting a false hitler. Just typing that crap made my head hurt.
buahaha, uh yeah, my fiance would be the first to tell me how lame my gaming hobby is. There's no way to disguise it as cool, and a valid expenditure of time to her. Playing Deus Ex, ME 3, or Mario Party. It's all the same to her. Lame. Unless it's THIS, which is the only game she's played through, let alone twice on her profile, twice on mine.

Don't listen to him. The opening is nothing more than a parody of the story of Abraham going to the mountain to sacrifice his son Isaac. Which, in the Biblical tale, ends with God stopping Abraham before he can do it, but in the game, Isaac's mother simply wants to kill him :P
The story in the Bible is a bizarre one taken at face value, but foreshadows the sacrifice of christ. Interestingly, Paul in the book of Hebrews later explains that Abraham's willingness to kill his only miraculously-born "son of the promise", saying that Abraham's faith was such that he reasoned that God would be able to raise Isaac from the dead after he killed him >_>
If you do too well in a level, after beating the boss of the that level you're actually offered a deal with the devil! You think Nintendo wants to touch that with a ten foot pole? Some powerups are dead-kittens, aborted or miscarried fetuses, and assorted other nasty weirdness. Bosses are drawn from the seven deadly sins and the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
The game uses mythological imagery with abandon on a scale seldom seen outside Asian bastardizations of such concepts! But you'd never get the whole of it on a Nintendo console!
The game was destined for Xbox live or Sony's portable.
