Walk to Jesus ™ Christian Motivation Family Game is one of the most beautiful games on the modern market, thanks to our great illustrator, Alais Legrand and keen art direction of author of the game Alfred Vesligaj. And it sure is one of the most if not the most aesthetically pleasing Christian games. Aesthetics was one of our primary concerns when developing the game, because image is the first tool we have to capture the players’ imagination. And imagination – mostly removed from our education systems – is key to understanding, because we have to be able to imagine things if we want to understand them. Not to mention that a beautiful game will attract players to take it from the shelf more often than a less aesthetically pleasing one. And that is our goal – to have players play our game over and over again to remind them of their road to Jesus.
Aesthetics: Alais Legrand, illustrator
Alais Legrand is a young but very talented illustrator with a great sense of color and space of the image. She managed to catch one of the hardest perspectives – top down – and make an eye-catching, stunning game board, filled with details and nature like images. Board of Walk to Jesus ™ is placed on an island, with a mountain in the center that rises up into heaven, with Jesus as central figure of it and seraphs encircling Him. Also icons of religious concepts like angels, devils, Eye of the Lord, sin and temptation are full of well thought elements, fitting perfectly into the game. There is devil pointing down the stares into the fire and little demon sitting on top of pile of gold, representing temptation. Mother Mary is praying, encircled by flowers in the meadow, and angels spread their wings, protecting you while climbing up the stairs and move closer to Jesus.
Jesus on the cover of the box is extending his hand towards the observer, inviting them to walk towards Him. With the sun at his back, illuminating Him standing on the shore this marks earthly beginning of our road to Jesus. And on the back of the box there is Jesus standing on top of the stairs in heaven, his arms spread, welcoming the observer to go up and join Him in heaven.
