What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are putting You Are God into Early Access so that we can complete the game while giving our growing legion of fans the ability to play and be part of the process. There is a lot more we plan to add over the coming months that we didn't think would even be possible when we began.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe our final release date will be sometime in Q4, but we plan to release early if possible.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There will be a much deeper mythology system in place to allow the player to really see how their actions are influencing the sentient life on the planet. Each of the three nations will war against each other and practically destroy the planet in the process.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now the game is very playable, but many features are not available to the player. A world can be developed and life can flourish, but details are not in place and many God powers are not functional.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will raise upon full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We already have a bit of community involvement through communications with our Kickstarter backers, but we are also putting together a forum for players to give input through and plan to be a part of the discussion on Steam.”

Fixed a major bug

Turns out we had a major bug in the game that we hadn't run into ourselves, but thanks to player zachpearse, we have found the issue and corrected it.

For some of you this won't be too noticeable, but for others it will completely fix the game. Of course, it still won't "complete" the game and there are a lot of features still to be turned on. When they are all fully tested, you'll have them.

We also have another update coming that will adjust the rates of growth and decline and we'll be adding some buttons to speed up the game. Plus, soon, those horrible placeholder images with be replaced and the UI will be updated.

Thanks again to Zach for pointing out this bug. It was a surprisingly big one.

Mythology Hotfix

There was a bit of an issue with the mythology of each nation not displaying properly, and we took care of it.

You may experience a lengthy black screen right after the Unreal Engine cinematic plays. This is a loading screen that will be replaced by cinematics in an upcoming update, but for the moment it is blank. We prostrate before you, Great Ones, and apologize for making you endure this torture.

About This Game

You Are God is a game that allows you to take on the role of the God of a single planet. You are in control of the planet's weather, but you do not have control of the planet's life. Everything you do affects any plants, animals or even people that develop on your world. A storm may bring much needed cool rain, but it could also scare inhabitants or kill life if it is too strong.

In You Are God, you [the player] must care for a new planet. Warm the planet with sunlight and wet it down with rain to produce the best conditions for life to develop. If the conditions are right, plant life may develop. If there is plant life, it's possible that animal life may form. Once there is animal life, it may develop sentience. Once this happens the lifeforms will create a new religion to offer solace to their fears and desires.

Will they worship you, or will they come up with a different God? Will the different nations turn on each other, fighting over which religion is correct, or will they unite in harmony and develop new technologies together? Will they become advanced enough to journey into space and potentially leave the planet entirely? They will live their lives, following their own free will, but you must guide them and care for them if they are to reach their full potential.

There are three continents (nations) that grow and run by their own sets of rules. These rules are dictated by the religion they design and follow. If you are the God they worship, you will have more influence over them, but you can never control them. If you are unknown or despised by the people they may turn against you. If the nations have different Gods, they may fight and could even destroy the planet in the process.

The endgame idea is for the people on the planet to discover another world and leave their home planet behind. As the technology level rises, the people will notice the stars, go to space, colonize the moon, research other planets and eventually leave to colonize on another world. Of course, it's also possible to keep them on the planet and under your care with religious influence.
