* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Despite [=MDickie=] calling the game 'educational', ''The Making of a Prophet'' portrays Mohammad as a borderline-pacifist and disregards the fact that he willingly led several military campaigns in real life in order to make him more "virtuous".

* LetsPlay: General Ironicus (with some help from ChipCheezum) [=LP'd=] [[http://lparchive.org/The-You-Testament/ The You Testament: Fuck MDickie Edition]] (a mod he made replacing most of the textures with random ones from various sources for a completely absurd experience). This would inspire fellow [[Website/SomethingAwful goon]] Daeren to go on to Let's Play [[http://lparchive.org/The-You-Testament-2/ the sequel.]]

* InvisibleWalls: Averted- you can walk right up to the skybox on which the horizon, mountains and sky are projected, giving the impression you are in a dome a la ''Film/TheTrumanShow''.

''The You Testament'' is a SpeculativeHistory video game by indie developer Mat Dickie, better known by his username [=MDickie=]. The player takes the role of a disciple of Jesus Christ, who [[BeenThereShapedHistory follows his teacher]] through a [[ArtisticLicenseReligion loose retelling]] of the life of Jesus as detailed in [[Literature/TheFourGospels the New Testament]].

Although ''The You Testament'' was meant to be [=MDickie=]'s last game, he eventually changed his mind and made an ExpansionPackSequel called ''Making of a Prophet'', where the player follows Muhammad as he founds the religion of Islam.

A what-if game by the indie developer Mat Dickie, better known among his fans and {{Hatedom}} as [=MDickie=]. In it, the player takes the role of a disciple of Jesus Christ, who follows his teacher through the stories of Jesus found in the Bible (albeit incredibly loose versions of the stories that barely resemble any extant edition of the Bible).

Although ''The You Testament'' was meant to be [=MDickie=]'s last game, he eventually changed his mind and made a sequel (actually a mod of the first game), ''Making of a Prophet'', about Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

* AerithAndBob: Oooooh, so much. Characters in ''The Making of a Prophet'' can go from being named Muhammad to Plato to Buddha to '''''Wendy'''''.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: [[spoiler:Since there's no Judas, the PlayerCharacter is the one who betrays Jesus to the Sanhedrin, despite having shown nothing but complete loyalty to Jesus (in cutscenes, at least) during the story.]]
* AdaptedOut: ''Every single one'' of Jesus' followers from the Gospels except for John.

** The map screen from ''Making of a Prophet'' is a smaller rearrangement of the Holy Land from ''The You Testament'', [[TheyJustDidntCare and the objective marker is still a cross]].

* CluelessAesop: One of the reasons [=MDickie=] made ''The Making of a Prophet'' was because he felt that most Westerners were only familiar with stereotypical portrayals of Islam and wished to offer an educative, unbiased look at the religion. Unfortunately, the message is severely undermined both by the poor quality of the game and [=MDickie=] sometimes simply [[ArtisticLicenseHistory getting his facts wrong.]]
