Introduction



Alternate titles:
"Bishonen Bible Fight"


El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a 3D action game with plenty of platforming sections. It was created in 2011 by UTV Ignition Entertainment's Japanese development studio called "Ignition Tokyo". It was meant to be the first in a serious of religion-inspired games, but that plan never went through. The game is loosely on the Dead Sea Scrolls (in particular the Book of Enoch). The game follows Enoch, a man so good God let him join Heaven early. After spending a pretty long time in Heaven, he's tasked with going back to Earth and stopping the Watchers, a group of angels who were meant to watch over humanity, but ended up going rogue and corrupting humanity. God and Heaven want to flood Earth and start over, but Enoch offers to hunt down the Watchers and fix everything.

What can I expect from this LP?

This will be a post-commentary LP. I'll be commenting the game together with Geisha-Deconstruct. The playthrough will be a 100% normal run, which means it'll include all the collectible lore available in the game. We're aiming at around 20 minutes per episode and at least one episode per week (two episodes this week, though).

How long is this game?

There are 11 chapters in the game, not counting the prologue chapter which is labelled as "Chapter 0". The entire game can be beat in around 7 hours, if you're good enough.

So this has a bunch of Christian references? Will you be covering that?

Kind of! We'll be commenting on a few things during the playthrough. We considered doing supplement episodes dealing with references in each episode, but after some discussion figured it might be too patronizing. Instead, we'll do a special episode once the LP is done and talk about everything more in-depth.

How are you playing this?

The game is being played on a PS3 and recorded at 720p/60FPS.
