"Left Behind" With Spyware Ads

Left Behind Games (a publicly traded company, even) have added money-changers to their particular temple. The game comes fully loaded with what some would term built-in spyware, in the form of in-game advertising that tracks the amount of time ads are seen, how often the game is played, and the player's geographical and personal information. It then sends this data back to the advertiser's servers.
-- Religious video game leaves spyware behind

I wonder if they'll have an ingame billboard that says "God Is Watching".
