"We wanted to be there and propose a videogame that is religious, interactive, and empowered to form evangelism teams."
In the game, players are assigned to form an eTeam made up of friends, biblical characters , Saints, Blessed and Marian devotions.
His page description in the Google Play Store states: "The eTeam will help you create a collection Generating characters (both virtual and real) will accompany you in your day and pilgrimage to JMJ 2019 in Panama and other religious events in The World. "
