-- a 3d style Bible story software
game about the story of Joseph from Sunday Software.
Joseph's Story is a 3-D
style lesson-game that tells the whole story of
Joseph. Your students
guide "Robin MacTavish," a teenage archaeologist, through the
of Joseph's palace recently discovered beneath the Egyptian sands by
her grandfather, Sir Dabney MacTavish. Their
conversation during the adventure helps tell
the story and guide your students. (If
you've seen our terrific Exodus Adventures
CD, you've already met Robin and Sir Dabney.)

well of rejection, Potiphar's house, Pharaoh's prison,
the Baker and Cupbearer's dreams,
Pharaoh's Dreams, famine and service to Pharaoh, and
reconciliation with Joseph's brothers.
