We have new programming classes!  George Garman, a Visions team Senior Programmer, has offered to serve on our team as a Programming Instructor for our new developers who are learning, or need to brush up on their skills.  He will be developing a series of courses to teach specific programming concepts in C++ and Torque Script.

Membership on the development team is required for participation in the class as many class projects will be directly related to our game development projects.  Currently there is no fee for joining George’s classes, but assignments will need to be turned in on time and in completion to stay in the class. We will be working on delivery methods as technology becomes available. Currently emails, IRC, Teamspeak and videos are anticipated to be the primary delivery methods of information, as all classes are online. Live instruction will be recorded and used for future classes as well.  George will be working closely with the Director of Programming, Mark Dynna, to coordinate his class instruction to the needs of the game.  Class Assignments will be geared toward needs of the development project whenever possible, thus meaning that students will be working directly with actual game code much of the time.  As students attain a level of proficiency that they can engage in self-directed learning, they will be given more independant task assignments on the game project to work with. It is expected that the students will ask questions about issues they have with their project assignments to advance their knowledge.

A minimum of a 1 year commitment is required for this programming internship/apprenticeship opportunity. If you are wanting to join George’s programming classes, please send in an online volunteer application to officially confirm your interest and note on the application that you are interested in the Programming Apprenticeship classes.

On September 11, 2009 Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo converted the business structure from sole proprietor to LLC. This is yet another step in taking action to build a larger stronger team, and preparing for bigger things to come in the near future. This conversion to LLC was made for legal purposes, and has no effect on the actual work that we are doing at Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo, which is making great family friendly games for Christ! Thank you for your support.


Laurene Wells is the owner of Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo and the Producer of both Chariots and Visions. To learn more about her company and the games they make please visit the website

We’ve changed servers and changed our website layout!  We hope you like it. Please look around and let us know what you think.  If you’ve never been to our website before here is a little bit of information about our game.

Chariots is a family friendly racing game with a little bit of a role playing twist set in ancient Roman empire on the island of Cyprus. Players can race on foot, on horseback or in a chariot. Horses and chariots must be won at the races, along with other items which can be used in quests to obtain special mounts and special vehicles. There is a scripture scroll quest also to obtain a special mount. There are 21 races which includes a variety of race types, from traditional land based races, to hippodromes, to labyrinths & mazes, to marathons. There are a total of 17 mounts to be earned and 15 types of vehicles to be earned. One of the quest chariots is available in 12 different colors for additional variety. Chariots was produced by an entirely volunteer team collaborating over the internet from around the world. Many said it could not be done, but Chariots is a testimony that “With God, all things are possible.” We hope you enjoy the races!
