Saints of Virtue is a 3D medieval first person shooter video game developed by Shine Studios and released in 1999.[2][3][4][5]


The game takes place in a world allegorical to the spiritual aspects of the human heart. The player represents a Christian who enters his own heart to do battle with spiritual forces of temptation and to become a true 'Saint of Virtue.'[6]


The game features four levels, each representing a spiritual obstacle to the player's journey towards becoming a 'Saint of Virtue.' Enemies - floating masks representative of negative moral choices - appear frequently in the game, and must be destroyed using the Sword of the Spirit, which fires blue bolts. Players can pick up power-ups like the Shield of Faith, which reduces the damage taken by enemies, and "Spiritual health," which boosts the player's health bar.[7]

Saints of Virtue Gameplay


After an extended period of time supporting the game, Shine Studios decided to discontinue the game in 2014 at the same time that the website ( was set to expire. The game is no longer available for purchase digitally, and finding a CD version of the game is becoming increasingly difficult.
