Jawbone by DouglasRamsey Jawbone by DouglasRamsey
Acrylic on hardboard, 18" x 24"

When Samson came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting to meet him. Then the Spirit of the Lord rushed upon him, and the ropes that were on his arms became as flax that has caught fire, and his bonds melted off his hands. And he found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, and put out his hand and took it, and with it he struck 1,000 men.

(Judges 15:14-15)


"One man with God is always in the majority." - John Knox

Even if one does not believe in what the Bible says, one must admit that the Bible is a cornucopia of Sci-fi, Fantasy and even Horror elements. Demons, dragons, giants, mosters the Bible has them all. Just like other people have already said I would love to see a game based on tales like Samson's or Noah's. Maybe even a Shadow of the Collosus game for Jesus. Plus, Samson was the original Manly Man.

The writers at cracked.com suggested that "jawbone of a donkey" may have been a mistranslation of the Hebrew word for "minigun".

God of War, Asura's Wrath, Dante's Inferno.
If religions can have video games, why not Samson's Fury?

Yeah, I think a game set in the world of ancient Israel has potential. Something like Age of Conan.

We have plenty of Age of Conan, don't need another.

A loose tale of David the Giant Slayer has potentials.  I even thought about writing it.

The perspective is great! And the color and anatomy. I love how you can immediately tell what he's about to do.
