Coming into this game i was really excited, as it reminded me of the old school black and white and populous games. I watched a couple game-play videos of the first half hour or so, the game seemed interesting, you get to customize your own god and found a religion in it’s name. Deciding whether you’re a Good, Neutral, or Evil god in the process. Then you choose one of four themes, War/Peace, Lust/Chastity. Seems like an interesting concept so far, but unfortunately that’s the extent of the depth. You enter the main game after this point, and watch one of your followers fight a battle you can’t control at all as its based entirely on RNG. This is the main feature of the game. You amass followers and develop different locations to train them in different types of abilities. There were approximately ten different classes and each one has three abilities. It seemed to me that these abilities essentially boiled down to Rock/Paper/Scissor style choices. I should explain the fighting system. Your followers have slots for abilities, at the start they have one ability that they can use, and the rest of the slots are filled with their classes basic attack. In the fight they’ll roll for what they do, so the levelling system is all about giving them more abilities than basic attacks, so the rolls come out more favourably and after that you pump their stats, so your chosen abilities do more damage. They each worship different domains, which gives them benefits against other domains and drawbacks against some too. That’s it. That’s the entirety of the game. You boost up your followers’ stats and abilities by building different facilities in your city then send them into a fight you have no input into.
As a fan of God and Simulation games, I have to admit I am overall disappointed in this game. Perhaps I went into the game expecting the wrong things. The game feels a lot like a clicker type simulator.. Collect 40 energy and use a follower to do this. Extremely rinse and repeat.
