Alabama-based non-profit video game publisher Intelligent Media & Design (IMD Interactive) recently announced that its free-to-play Bible video game The Anointed: David Saves Keilah (DSK) recently hit a major milestone in development.

The Anointed franchise is now one step closer to beta with it's latest development update on Steam. The update includes basic training and shepherd levels, enhanced combat, stealth, cinematics, tutorials and platforming. 

DSK is a smaller version of The Anointed: Heart of David (HOD), which follows the life of biblical hero David from shepherd to king of Judah. The Anointed: HOD references multiple books in the Bible, primarily beginning in 1 Samuel 16 and ending in 2 Samuel 2. 

IMD also announced that in the last 12 months, with over 2.2 million impressions, DSK has been installed on computers in over 130 countries with a very small marketing budget.

IMD Interactive President Drayton Cosby stated that the latest Steam update is a big leap for IMD and puts The Anointed in position to move away from proof of concept (POC) to the minimum viable product (MVP) stage of its launch phase.

“With this update, we are now ready to test our small group curriculum with churches,” said Cosby. “This is an exciting time for those that have been praying to reach Generation Z and youth leaders searching for innovative methods to bring more students to God’s Word.”

IMD Interactive Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Interactive Carlo Romano stated that IMD works diligently to shift expectations, which have historically been low for Christian media and video games. 

“We have accomplished much with a fraction of the resources that secular and popular games have,” said Romano. “Our hearts drive us, and support is building, as people begin to recognize our games are more than just entertainment.”

IMD Interactive Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Matt Clark said there is no more interactive and engaging way to tell a story than video games, and he thinks that the best stories for every generation are the ones in the Bible. 

“We are striving to bring the ancient world to life for our players in a fun and entertaining way, so players get a feel for what David and his time was really like," said Clark. “We hope this leads players to be curious for what else is in the Bible, especially the stories about the son of David, King Jesus.”

To access the The Anointed: DSK Steam store page, players must be 13 years of age or older. For parents who are considering allowing younger children to play, please visit IMD’s YouTube videos and FAQs for more information.

Driving Force Action Launches Campaign to Educate Virginia Voters on Repealing the Commonwealth’s Internal Combustion Engine Ban

Driving Force Action (DFA), a nationwide alliance of gearheads, car enthusiasts, and automotive small businesses, launched a new campaign in Virginia today aimed at educating voters about the importance of repealing the state's internal combustion engine (ICE) ban. DFA's statewide campaign will inform Virginia voters about the importance of selecting statehouse candidates committed to rolling back the ICE ban legislation passed in 2021. The campaign comes as Governor Glenn Youngkin has pledged to repeal the ban, setting the stage for a crucial policy shift in the state that returns power to voters in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The Virginia ICE ban, enacted in 2021, linked the state's emission standards to those of California, effectively adopting California's burdensome rules banning the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035. DFA's Virginia campaign will highlight the critical need for Virginians to have a say in their state's automotive policies rather than allowing California bureaucrats to dictate their future.

"Virginians deserve the right to determine their own automotive future," said DFA spokesperson Riley Ploch. "By linking Virginia's emission standards to California's, we are essentially allowing another state to make decisions that negatively impact Virginia's economy, jobs, and personal choices. That's unacceptable and we're encouraging voters to take action at the ballot box."

The campaign will focus its efforts on key Senate districts across Virginia and urge voters to support candidates who, if elected to the state legislature, are fully committed to Governor Youngkin's commitment to repeal the ICE ban. By targeting these districts, DFA aims to ensure that voters are well-informed about the potential consequences of the ICE ban and the importance of electing legislators who prioritize the interests of Commonwealth citizens over those of unelected California bureaucrats.

DFA plans to engage and inform Virginia voters through grassroots outreach, digital and traditional advertising, community events, and social media campaigns. These efforts will emphasize the automotive industry's vital role in the state's economy and the potential for job loss and economic impact if the ICE ban remains in place.

The campaign's central message, "Why are we allowing California bureaucrats to make rules for Virginia?" will encourage voters to consider the implications of ceding Virginia's legislative independence to California bureaucrats more than 2,500 miles away from Virginia voters.

For more information about the Driving Force Action campaign and its efforts to roll back the ICE ban in Virginia, please visit or contact DFA spokesperson Riley Ploch at [email protected].

Driving Force Action is a project of the Specialty Equipment Marketers Association (SEMA), a trade association that represents the $52.8 billion specialty automotive aftermarket industry. The specialty automotive aftermarket creates over 24,000 jobs in the Commonwealth and contributes $373 million in state and local taxes. Founded in 1963, SEMA has a diverse membership of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, publishing companies, auto restorers, street rod builders, restylers, car clubs, race teams, and more.
