What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to make this game the best it can be and that takes time. I've spent the last 3 and a half years working to create this game and I'm finally ready to share it with the world, but there is still so much I want to do before I would consider this completed. There are also multiple paths that this game could go down. With the community's help, I'll be able to more easily find the path that will lead to the best god game I can make.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to remain in early access until the game is well rounded and everything is to an equal level of polish as well as adding more content. Hopefully this will take a year, two years tops.”

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

“I plan to follow what is fun and what the community is interested in as well as improve and polish every aspect of the game. I have many ideas for the future that I hope to accomplish:
Smarter AI that learns more in depth ideas.
More levels.
More enemy factions.
More of a storyline.
Better animations.
Mod Support

In the distant future perhaps even:
VR Support
Multiplayer

The way this project will go will all depend on how supported this project is.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the core of the game is functional, but not all of it is as polished as it should be. There are more things to add, bugs to fix. Animations are the weakest point currently as most are placeholder.
There are 4 creatures, 3 levels, and 23 miracles with almost all having 2 stronger variants.”

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

“The price may raise during early access as the game is improved and the final release will be priced higher as well depending on the final product.”

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

“Join us on discord or on the subreddit. I plan to follow these as much as I can to keep a finger on the pulse of the community. Polls on which part of development should be a priority might happen as well.”

About This Game

Deus Novum is the god game you've been waiting for. Cast miracles with the power of your villager's prayer, train your creature to behave or misbehave, build elaborate villages, and fight back against the forces of evil.

You are a new god born into a two worlds. You are born into the world of the gods. At the same time, your creature is born into the world of the mortals. Your creature is your avatar in the mortal world, and inside of them is your crystal. Your crystal is your connection to the world of man. You are not the only god living, for a god cannot be killed. However, all of the other gods have long since lost their connection to the mortal world at the hands of evil. With their guidance, it's up to you to take back the world for humanity one island at a time!

Convert villages to gain skill points which can be used to unlock miracles!

  • Start each island with one village and expand to control the entire map!
  • Convert human villages by impressing them or "removing" them.
  • Destroy evil villages and take them over to create new human villages.
  • Watch out! Evil villagers will try to take your village from you if you look weak.

Cast powerful miracles and teach them to your creature!

  • Storm, Fireball, Lightning, Summon Lava Golem, and many more miracles are waiting to be unlocked!
  • Gain power to cast miracles by having villagers worship you or by sacrificing flora, fauna, or even your villagers.
  • Teach your creature to cast miracles. By watching you cast miracles, your creature will slowly learn how to cast the miracle.

Choose your creature!

  • Choose between Ape, Panther, Turtle and Bear.
  • Select their skin/fur and eye colors!
  • Each creature has a different personality.

Train your creature!

  • Your creature starts out clueless, but they can learn! By watching your behavior and reinforcing their behavior with pets or punishment, your creature will learn how they should interact with the world. Train your creature to eat goblins, cast miracles, help your villagers, and more!
  • With the leash, you can take direct control of your creature and command him to move, pick things up, or fight.

Visit three islands and take them back for humanity! (6-8 hours of gameplay)

  • Orsus: The island of beginning.
  • Rota: Tropical island with an evil creature
  • Crag Peak: A large island stronghold of the evil empire

Rebuild the world!

  • With the help of your villagers you can restore your villages. Build houses, schools, altars and more to make your villages grow.
  • Use conduits to channel prayer power to power certain buildings

Defend against evil!

  • Enemies will launch attacks on adjacent villages. They kidnap children, burn fields and storehouses, destroy buildings, and more.
  • Evil creatures will join these attacks bringing an even larger challenge
