Sounds great ! I had just been noticing the promotion of Guitar Hero and even saw a young lady in dire need of practice trying out a setup at the mall.
Seriously, we always need to think : where will our next organist, choir member, altar boy, deacon, priest, CCD director come from? Not from thin air, and not even from someone else’s parish.
Do not lock up those organs !
Great job Jeff. And as always, there is no moments that cannot be a teaching moment.
Hilarious! And thanks for the plug.

What, no pedalboard???
Where are those “bass notes” coming from? Some 64’s on the manuals, perhaps???
Now THAT’s bass!
Otherwise, an excellent opus, Jeff. Good to see that Vatican II quote, too.
Note: a 64′ open pipe produces about 8 Hz – the C is three octaves below the C two ledger lines below the bass clef, and two octaves below the bottom C on a piano.
Too bad it’s just a spoof! I’d love that game.
Pedalboard optional – I think it’s another $49.95. Maybe Jeff could elaborate?
Hilarious stuff. I’ve been beginning to miss these parody products.
I’m wondering where the game for “Acolyte 2: Restoration” is…you know…the one where you’re the MC and the “Easy” level is the Novus Ordo, “Difficult” is the Trid. Low Mass, and “Extreme” is the Papal Tridentine Easter High Mass celebrated outside of St. Peters and during inclement weather.
The nice thing about this game was the option of languages “Latin, English”, easy controller use, and you had a store down the street so if you needed to go get emergency matches for candle lighting, you could do it… It had a neat multiplayer so that you & your buddies could form a “super” acolyte team and work your way up from being a candle-bearer to MC, then work your way up from doing Sunday Eucharistic celebrations to seasonal masses to diocese to papal. And you & your crew could help each other out with voice commands/talking… “Matches! Vestibule! Candle Out! Candle Out!”
Hardest part of some church scenarios was just finding the tabernacle…
Sounds great, I can’t wait for Organ Hero II.
I can’t wait for “Harmonica Hero”.
