What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After 3 years of development Godhood is ready to be played!

But creating your own religion is a massive fantasy!
Because of this, your feedback is invaluable to focus our efforts on your fun.

With Renowned Explorers we saw our fans are great at recognizing what is already good, and what needs to be better. With Godhood we’re exploring fresh strategic grounds, and your feedback and suggestions during Access will guide our development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This depends on how fast we hit the goals described below, but we expect it to be just a couple of months until we hit 1.0, from which we'll continue expanding Godhood even further.”

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

“We will of course focus on creating a solid and polished base game.
See below to get an idea of what's already in the game. To give an overview of what we're still looking to enhance on and add...

- At least 3 more religious commandments, each with: disciple class, temple, god power
- Deeper strategic gameplay managing your holy temple site and inspiring your disciples
- More content! Relics, Challenges, Enemy Gods, bigger World Map
- Expanded religious expression and customization
- A lot of other ideas we're not quite committing to yet, but are real excited about

Of course, part of the charm of Early Access is seeing what you and the other fans would like to see expanded on! So our plans might shift a bit to accommodate this.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is quite stable, but still has some place-holder GUI here and there.
We'll still add a lot, but Godhood already includes...

- Customize, name and create your own God
- Build a holy temple site; place and upgrade temples
- Manage a roster of disciples. Hire new ones, customize their looks and level them up
- Turn-based religious battles between disciples
- God powers to inspire disciples to perform rituals, go to war or throw a party
- Around 10 hours of gameplay.
- A single playthrough lasts between 2 and 4 hours.
- 4 religious commandments (War, Peace, Lust and Chastity) to try out
- 9 disciple classes, plus a custom class for each commandment, offering a wide range of strategies to explore.
- Dozens and dozens of disciples abilities to experiment with and find synergies between
- Beautiful visuals and relaxing music”

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

“We plan to do a single price increase once the game hits 1.0.”

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

“We've already ran a number of pre-launch betas where we actively engaged fans to build new features, fix balance and generally make the game better using our own Community Forums.
We plan to keep doing this, and then some, during Early Access!
We’ll be there waiting for you, young god!

About This Game

Create your own religion in the strategy god game Godhood. Select virtues and vices. Inspire construction of great temples, ready for rituals to be held in your honor. Guide and develop your faithful disciples in turn-based conflict to convert worshippers away from rival gods. Become the most powerful god of all!

Key Features

  • Create your own religion: From peaceful meditative monks to savage warrior-priests drenched in the blood of human sacrifice, mix and match dozens of religious dogmas to shape your worshippers’ morality!
  • Guide your disciples: Disciples are the heroes of your religion. They require your guidance—choose their class and level up their abilities to create your perfect team of mighty missionaries.
  • Manage your holy site: Your worshippers expand your holy site with new temples and buildings based on the religion you’ve created. Use these to collect resources or power up your disciples even further.
  • Indirect control: Your disciples have strong personalities and minds of their own. Use divine inspiration and godly intervention to guide them. But take heed, your influence is only as strong as their faith in you.
  • Turn-based Ritual Combat: Face other religions in automatic turn-based ritual combat called Sacraments. Use awe, persuasion, brute force or even flirtation to defeat and convert their worshippers.
  • A relaxing mythical world: Vibrant hand-painted art and relaxing tunes let you fully immerse yourself in Godhood’s world of devoted worship and mythical heroes.
  • Replayability: Experiment with different combinations of religious commandments, virtues, disciple classes, and holy relics.
