Messiah is a third-person shooter, but instead of a gung-ho space marine, you play Bob. Bob is an angel. He's pretty weak and not much a challenge for his enemies. But Bob has a special gift... he can possess any living creature and gain that creature's special abilities. Possession is the key to Messiah. You have to use possession to fend off your enemies, but you will also need your wits to take control of the right individual to get you past the game's puzzles.
Messiah uses a special engine that automatically generates the most detailed characters your computer can handle every second as you play.
Bob is a working-class angel ordered by God himself to go and clean up the putrid, disgusting, sleazy, and infested world of the future. He has been given the power of POSSESSION so that he can sneak up on any person, animal or genetically engineered being and leap right into their soul!
With your help, Bob can then use their bodies, their weapons, or even their bare hands to strangle, cripple, impale, and incinerate the cities of sinners sent to stop you from finding Satan himself.
Hiding in their souls, Bob can use these sinner's bodies against their will as ARMOR (to take pain for him), or he can use them for CAMOUFLAGE (to hide inside them) and pretend to be just another twisted citizen in the Messiah world...
The RULES are up to you... Enjoy the freedom.
