Ever dreamed of being pope? Now you (virtually) can, in exciting video game


Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to lead the Church? Now the possibility of being elected pope is just a click away.

The 'Pope Simulator' video game lets you live out the experience as an adventure.

From the conclave, to giving blessings from the balcony, the game even lets you design your own emblem.

You'll also have to face leadership challenges, make hard decisions and travel all over the world.

There are some particularly interesting features. For example, the video game character replenishes strength each day through prayer.

This game, available for PC, allows you to experience a day in the life of the pope. It even lets you make your way through St. Peter's Square while greeting pilgrims and blessing children.

With 'Pope Simulator,' you'll be making the front pages around the globe, but you'll also get a glimpse of what it could mean to be Peter's Successor, all from your own screen.
