If you're here you most probably know our new game Godhood is being Kickstarted right now. We're making something very special and we want to work on it for years to come. In order to do that it's very important that we reach as many people as possible with this campaign. If you're looking for ways to help us out other than pledging your support in the Kickstarter, then this thread is for you. First of all a big thank you for your interest and willingness to help! While backing the project itself is the strongest support you can give us, there are other things you can do to help Godhood become a success.
Whether you backed or not, please consider doing the following:
Retweet our main Kickstarter tweet, and optionally retweet Kickstarter updates and such...
This is an exciting time for us (and we hope for you, too). The Godhood Kickstarter will be launching very shortly!
In order to make sure we get it right, we'd really like it if you could take a look at the Kickstarter preview and give us your honest feedback.
That way we can make sure we get it right when we really get going.
If you'd like to make sure you can be the first to grab one of the limited rewards or an early bird pledge, be sure to press the Remind Me button, and you'll get a heads up when we go live. Also, it would be a huge help for us if you share the preview with friends and gamers you think will...
The world of Godhood is one filled with diverse tribes that worship many different deities, of which you are but one.
In order for you to raise your God Level you'll need to convert these tribes to worship you instead.
In the mythical world of Godhood this happens through the ritual conflicts known as Sacrements.
In Inside Godhood, we’ll take a deep dive in our upcoming god game: Godhood.
One of the Abbey Games monks will walk you through some of the great things you’re going to be doing in Godhood.
This time we'll talk about your Disciples.
Hi young gods, Rick here again!
Your Godhood deity is not all-powerful. You’re an idea that exists within people.
As such, you affect the world through your Worshippers and your Disciples.
Worshippers form the masses that, in their prayers, raise your God Level and increase your power.
Converting new Worshippers to your religion is one of your primary goals in Godhood.
The ones to do so are the Disciples.
These powerful apostles are skilled in the Sacrament: a ritual conflict between two religions that determines which God is strongest!
Victory grants many rewards, including (freshly converted!) Worshippers...
The third and final expansion for Renowned Explorers: Quest For The Holy Grail, the Soundtrack, the Art Book and the Renowned Explorers: Definitive Edition are out... now!
The expansion contains a new expedition in which you follow in the spiritual footsteps of a certain whip-wielding archeologist in search for the ultimate treasure in the Middle-East. Meet mysterious Djinns, alluring belly dancers and even some spoiled cats! And what are those dastardly Anti-Explorers up to this time?
The best part: this new expansion will be completely free for all current and future owners of the Renowned Explorers base game! The DLC should be granted automatically after tonight's update.
Special Community Challenge
To celebrate the release of this new expansion, we will be raffling five copies of...
We have been teasing for a while now that we weren't completely done with Renowned Explorers, so we are proud to announce the third and final expansion:
Renowned Explorers: Quest For The Holy Grail DLC
This new expansion will contain a new expedition in which you follow in the spiritual footsteps of a certain whip-wielding archeologist in search for the ultimate treasure in the Middle-East. Meet mysterious Djinns, alluring belly dancers and even some spoiled cats! And what are those dastardly Anti-Explorers up to this time?
The best part: this new expansion will be completely free for all current and future owners of the Renowned Explorers base game!
Soundtrack and Art Book
At the same time, we will also be releasing the two oft requested extras.
It's been a while and we've teased it a bunch, but now it's finally time to open up about Godhood a bit. We've planned to share some insight into what's going on behind the scenes through posts, visual content, chats, and whatnot on a very, very short term. But that's not all; we also want (some of) you to start playing the game! That's what the alpha testing program is for.
In the past couple of weeks, we've secretly already let a handful of community members play around with an alpha version of the game. And in the coming weeks, we're going to let some more people in, starting Wednesday the 5th of December.
As we hope you understand, we'll keep the group of testers small in the beginning. We aim to let new testers in with every update to the alpha version of the game that we release, to keep a fresh...
Welcome to the new place for all your updates, discussion and community activity around Abbey Games, the studio behind Reus, Renowned Explorers and Godhood!
Up our community-game
We took a long hard look at our old forums and our other means to communicate with people that play and/or love our games and decided that it was time to up our community-game a bit. We want this hub (because it's more than just a forum) to become the go-to place for everyone who is interested - even very slightly - in Abbey Games or one of its games. This will be the place where you'll get to know first about new developments around Godhood and Renowned Explorers (yes, we're still working on it!) through announcements and in-depth pieces of content by actual developers. It will also be the place where you can report any issue with any of our games and be absolutely sure that we hear you. The internet is a big place, but we hope to make it feel small and cozy as long as you're tuned in to...
This time around, we don't want to take these steps all by ourselves: we want to proceed with you, the community around Abbey Games and Godhood, in particular, involved in the process! And that's why we wanted to give you a little heads-up on our next big step in making Godhood a reality, which is a Kickstarter campaign that we're planning to run approximately around February 2019!
