A little backstory:
Super 3D Noah’s Ark was the only unlicensed video game cartridge ever released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) during its supported life cycle. Ark was created by Wisdom Tree, an unlicensed developer; or, perhaps a little more accurately, the prior unlicensed developer Color Dreams, as re-branded to make Bible-themed carts in order to avoid litigation from Nintendo, thinking big N would fear a public backlash if they went after a family-friendly company.
The tactic worked, for the most part, and many infamous Jesus games were made, some of which were simply reskins of prior Color Dreams titles. For example, Crystal Mines became Exodus, with its plot shifting from having to do with a remote-controlled robot to the Hebrew prophet Moses blasting apart rocks and heathens alike with the Word of God.
Now, 20 years later, an original Wisdom Tree staff member is spearheading a re-release. This means that people can, for $60 plus $7 shipping & handling, order an all-new copy of the box, instruction manual, and cartridge.
How do I know this? Because, as a Nintendo blogger guy, I once reached out to this particular Wisdom Tree staffer (who still runs wisdomtreegames.com) for an interview. She declined politely, but apparently kept me on a select list of recipients for this particular press release, about the return of Super 3D Noah’s Ark.
Which, for me, raises some questions.
