"Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain."
Exodus 20:7

Wisdom Tree is an American Christian video game company that was a subsidiary of Color Dreams, a company notorious for producing low-quality unlicensed games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Unlike Color Dreams however, Wisdom Tree is still in business today. The company mostly churned out "bible games" for the NES and Sega Genesis. Now, they usually make products that hold their games like the Arkade. They also resell their games on Steam.

Why They're Unholy

  1. Nearly all of their games are simply reskinned versions of Color Dreams games. They simply reskin most of them to be themed more around Christianity and religion and the games that aren't reskinned are simply terrible games.
  2. What's worse is that a large amount of each game has almost NOTHING to do with Christianity.
  3. Quotes around "bible games" were added since none of their games seem to teach really anything about the Bible whatsoever.
  4. One of their games, Spiritual Warfare, is simply a clone of The Legend of Zelda.
    • In fact, all of their games are ripped off of another game, such as Jesus and the Temple being similar to Super Mario Bros. 2, and even the graphics for most of their games resemble the latter.
  5. Two of their games, Exodus and Joshua, are both reskins of one game, which was Crystal Mines.
  6. Some games, such as Bible Buffet, have almost nothing to do with the Bible. In Bible Buffet, there are quizzes based on the Bible throughout the game, but you do not get the questions on-screen, instead you have to look in the manual, which without it, you have to rely on pure luck on the quizzes.
  7. Many of their games have quizzes with very questionable answers.
  8. The only reason they started selling Bible Games was because Nintendo threatened to cease business with retailers selling unlicensed NES games, so Color Dreams formed Wisdom Tree to sell Bible Games to Christian bookstores as a loophole. This made Nintendo reluctant to sue Wisdom Tree themselves or any retailer carrying their products, fearing a public relations disaster due to potential backlash from religious groups and conservative parents.
