Godhood is a game created by Abbey Games studio - an independent developer known for its titles of Renowned Explorers: International Society and Reus. In the title described above, the creators once again come into contact with the subject of divinity and caring for their followers.

Story

After the beginning of the game, the player takes on the role of a newborn deity, contacting a group of their future wards. After realizing the first supernatural phenomenon, the tribe decides to adopt and spread the newly created religion, and our task is to help the "sheep". This is not an easy task - the region in which the game takes place is far from monotheism, and a considerable number of gods with extremely different decalogues fight for domination in it.

Mechanics

The mechanics of the game are based on typical systems known from the "goddess game" production. (god game). The user does not directly control every member of his church, but only shows them the path to follow. The main management system is a hierarchy of values, which determines which behaviors are indicated and which are sinful. For example, a player can spread the ideology of war, love, sacrifice or honour among their charges, which will make religious subjects more willing to take part in specific actions. The condemnation of promiscuity or greed will dissuade them from deviating from the recommended path.

As each option can be banned or sanctified, there is a wide variety of cults - for example, we can become a merciful god of peace, a bloodthirsty avatar of war worshipped by human sacrifices, an honorable personification of justice, or a Dionysian god who values splendor and fun. In addition to individual principles, the deity should also suggest to its subjects its religious rituals and monuments erected in its own honor. The most inspired members of the tribe have a chance to become priests, key to the religious education of the next generation and to the further development of the congregation.

God can also use specific powers and skills. They are especially useful during sacraments, i.e. cultural wars with tribes of non-believers.
