“Evangelist” comes from the Greek word transliterated as “evangelion”, which means “good news” or “gospel”. The evangelists were the authors of the four Gospels in the New Testament. This game allows players to go through a similar process that the gospel authors went through, visiting eyewitnesses to compile source material for their gospel, then organizing and arranging it with a particular emphasis.
This is the third game in the “Acts” series, and has some points of familiarity with the first two.
