We've been extensively looking on how to fundamentally improve the game. The answer from the community seems to be clear: More content, more depth, more ways to build on your religion! In "Newfound Shores", our focus is on depth and content, while laying a foundation for more religious interaction.
We have some sad news, unfortunately. Abbey Games is forced to scope down significantly to survive as a company and to guarantee that Godhood will be finished.
For you, fans and players of our games, not too much will change.
Godhood will still launch out of Early Access in the first half of 2020, with a small delay on the current roadmap. We are still hard at work to make this launch the best we can make it, with our final goal being to expand the game's World Map and replayability.
All Kickstarter Rewards will also be finished by Godhood's launch. If you have any questions regarding these, definitely let us know.
For us, the hardworking monks of the Abbey, a lot is going to change.
This marks the end of an era of 8 years of Abbey Games. We will continue to put...
Godhood's first Milestone Update is here!
Introducing greatly expanded religion crafting with the new 'Religious Development' system, a greater challenge with the 'Crystal Skulls' resource, a completely overhauled economy and character recruitment, new Sacrament rules to make it more strategic, and tons of new content, from buildings to story events and an overhauled World Map!
Play the 'Create Your Own Religion' Milestone Update right now!
New System: Religious Development
Inspire your Worshippers to develop your religion by guiding them through Religious Developments in different 'Religion Trees'!
Each Commandment comes with it's own unique Religion Tree, which include branching choices as to how your religion develops.
For example, will your War Religion follow the path of Valor or Savagery?
And if they do become Valorous, will they fight for your Greater Good or Personal Glory?
Finally, the ancient gods have graced us with their maddening presence. The Old One has Risen! This Update #2 introduces the new Madness commandment including all the content described below. Our main goal here is to add more content to the game so you can create different kinds of religions, and experiment with a broader strategical toolset, especially in the Dark elemental corner. This is a free content update as part of Godhood's regular Early Access updates. We hardly changed any gameplay systems this update, so if you're waiting for that, please sit tight for our next update.
