Godhood by Abbey Games
It has been a while since we’ve seen a good god game, but Abbey Games plan on changing that with the upcoming release of Godhood. The Dutch studio has already proven themselves with games like Reus and Renowned Explorers, but Godhood looks like it will be their most ambitious title yet. Although the base game has already been funded and on course for an Early Access release in May 2019, Abbey Games launched a Kickstarter campaign today to provide it with even more depth.
The Godhood Kickstarter has a funding goal of €50,000, which must be reached before March 1st. Abbey Games have a lot of ambitious plans for the game, but one of the most exciting additions that might become a reality thanks to this Kickstarter is the inclusion of an eldritch god. The focus of the game is to play as a young tribal god spreading your own religion through the land. The base game will already provide players with a ton of options when it comes to choosing what kind of god they want to be, but the inclusion of an ancient eldritch god with your own dark and secretive cult sounds pretty good to us. Obviously, if the Kickstarter is a success, it would provide Abbey Road with more resources needed to include additional options for mixing and matching into your own unique religions.
There are numerous pledges available for Godhood, starting from as little as €1 if you just want to help out all the way to €1,000 if you want to name an enemy disciple, design a dedication and design an adversary deity. All the pledges starting at €20 or higher includes a digital copy of Godhood, so this is a good opportunity to secure the game and help the developers to make it even better.
For more information about Godhood and what the game will entail, check out the official website or the Kickstarter page. Be sure to check out the video below as well as it introduces both the game and team. Whether your idea of godhood includes cat worship or human sacrifices, Godhood looks like it is going to be one to keep an eye on if you are a fan of the god game genre.
