What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wish to include our players on the process of development. As a small team, doing any sort of big design decisions for the game is extremely time consuming, and having the player base guiding our next steps would be a great way to focus on the most important aspects of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 1 year.”

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

“Although many of the game's current features will remain the same, the full version will be a more polished and balanced game, with more bosses, arenas, stories and a longer and more enjoyable experience overall. Check our steam posts to keep up the updates and the features we intend on adding soon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently fully functional, with 4 playable arenas and most of the management features already implemented. Although it is a shorter experience, one can already play all aspects of the game.”

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

“No, the price will remain the same.”

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

“We'll be communicating with the players via the steam forums and social networks, discussing not only ways to polish the game, but making design decisions together.”

About This Game

Gods of Sand is a gladiator manager with turn based combat, heavily inspired by the Swords and Sandals series, but in a darker and unforgiving setting. Besides fighting in multiple arenas, micromanaging your ludus and gladiators is an important part of the game, which features:


To run a ludus (a gladiator school) you must always pay attention to the economics of your business. Fight to get money and prizes, train your gladiators enough to maintain a solid income and restore the old and abandoned ludus your family left you.


Multiple items and weapons are allowed inside combat, but knowing the best time to use your gear is key if you want to be the champion of the arenas.


Any skill, armor or weapon is usable by any gladiator, generating lots of possibilities when it comes to creating new builds.
