Godhood to ascend Early Access on August 11

By - | Views: 13,003

After about a year, the auto-battling god game is close to launching out of Early Access. There’s a few new features leading up to the full release as well.

This god simulator by Abbey Games allows players to create their own religion, cultivate followers and grow the faith into glorious prosperity. Originally crowdfunded, Godhood has come a long way since its original pitch, adding a whole range of options and mechanics to better define your godly cult. Expect to issue commandments, manage disciple and engage in divine combat against other deities in a battle to establish yourself as the one true faith.

While there’s a few changes to overall balance in the launch version, what caught my eye was the following:

Dogs, cats and llamas now roam your city. Declare them holy and see your followers bow to your graceful llamas. Glorious.

Any game that allows llamas to be declared sacred animals is all right by me.

It should also be noted that the developers have had trouble financing themselves and have had to let staff go. In an extremely honest post in the Steam forums, they claim that they don’t have the resources to maintain versions for other platforms. The Linux version should still work for the foreseeable future but they just don’t have the manpower to check and troubleshoot problems if the need should arise. While that’s a shame, it’s also understandable and they were upfront enough to remove the relevant icons from the Steam store page.

Still, if you’re looking for a fairly different sort of game, check out Godhood on GOG or Steam.

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

It's a shame they faltered so close to the finish line. Hopefully they'll have enough sales to keep going.
