What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose Early Access for "ONE of 500" to actively involve our community in the game's development journey. Your feedback is crucial as the narrative explores deep, personal, and existential questions of life.

After many years of development, we did not want to keep our community waiting any longer. Instead, we're opening the door for collaboration to mold "ONE of 500" into an engaging, meaningful, and thought-provoking experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The duration of the Early Access status will depend significantly on the funding of the project. We hope to be able to constantly produce new content through your support and advertising for it; this will also be available in the Early Access version.
Presumably for at least the next six months. We focus on quality and ensuring that the game meets our standards before its full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We already have some features in development that are not yet visible in the Early Access version.
Future updates will bring enhancements to visuals, gameplay, and performance, as well as new features and content.
We are also planning 5 episodes in season 1.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version currently only includes the prologue. This is approx. 1/3 of Episode 1, part of which has already been produced. The same applies to episodes 2 and 3.
The Early Access status includes the basic features such as dialog system, advanced actions, story system, Bible log (prototype), inspect, and eavesdrop.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Wir wollen das Spiel in seiner Grundversion kostenlos für alle zugänglich machen. Dafür brauchen wir eure Hilfe. Später könnte es zusätzliche Modi geben, die kostenpflichtig werden.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Join our Discord server for real-time discussions with fellow players and developers. Share your feedback, ideas, and experiences as we work together to shape the game.
We will continue to have playtesting sessions to gather hands-on feedback from the community. Participate in these sessions to experience new features firsthand and provide valuable input on the story, gameplay mechanics, and overall experience.
We will also keep you updated on Steam, Instagram and via Newsletter.”

About This Game

ONE of 500 is a third-person story-adventure, in which you experience the most important story of all time from the perspective of a young fisherman: The Story of Jesus from Nazareth.

Embark on a morally and spiritually challenging journey and shape your adventure: Face existential life questions and deal with fundamental human conflicts in a biblical context.

Discover the authentic world of Jesus of Nazareth and immersively experience the events, meaning, and relevance of the Gospel in its historical and cultural context.

How your very own adventure unfolds alongside the greatest story every told, is a sum of your actions!


ONE of 500 lets you shape the personal adventure. It is about taking matters into your own hands, which can be broken down into 3 basic aspects:

  • Explore and discover a world of conflict.
    Explore atmospheric and detailed locations. Meet believable Characters and get to know their story, opinions and personal agendas. And discover and inspect an interactive environment.
    Witness events of the Gospel and experience how these impact the story and world of your character.
  • Shape your journey through choices and actions.
    Face meaningful decisions, position yourself towards what you experienced, and follow through with your actions.
    Be free how to choose and express your thoughts. All decisions are meant to be yours - to make it your personal journey. There is no “right or wrong” to complete a quest. The player´s skill does not limit the progression in the branching narrative.
  • Experience and deal with the consequences of your decisions.
    You can leave a persistent mark in the world! Different groups and people have distinct agendas and will remember and react to your actions - which might directly impact your next decisions and the relationship with the NPCs.


In ONE of 500 you experience the events, that have significantly shaped our world today, through the eyes of a fictional contemporary witness.

You play the 16-year-old fisher-boy named Benjamin. As part of a poor fishing family in Capernaum you have to face the challenges of growing up, meeting your family´s expectations and finding your place in the local society while the people around you react differently to the recent groundbreaking events and changes of circumstances.

A web of relationships between opposing parties and challenging dilemmas forces you to make decisions. Who are you? Who do you want to be? What is right and wrong?

Your decisions and actions allow you to define your journey, grant different and distinct perspectives on the things happening around you and cause believable, persistent consequences which enable you to form a better understanding and an educated positioning towards these biblical events.
