New release: Deity Quest
The premise, in case you’ve forgotten:
Deity Quest is a light-hearted, pokemon-inspired RPG where you play as an ambitious young god, recently assigned to a world – Aberos – to convert followers and gain power. Your goal is to become the Overgod, the highest position among the many gods of Aberos. Develop your divine magic, support your followers in fast-paced 6 vs. 6 battles, adventure through locations, and compete with other deities in your quest to reach the top!
Though the game is inspired by Pokemon, battles are 6 versus 6 rather than the 1-on-1 affairs Pokemon is known for. You can see how this looks in the trailer:
As you progress through the game, the developers state that you’ll gain new magic based upon your character’s alignment, as well as converting new followers to your cause. (There are reportedly 128 different follower types to convert, so that should keep you busy for a good while.)
Deity Quest is available for PC in two flavors: basic and extended (the latter of which has multiplayer and trading features). You can snag the basic version for $8, or the extended version for $10, for Windows, Mac, and Linux direct from the developer. There is a free browser demo available on Newgrounds. You can also get the game on Android for $5; the Android version has a free demo available here.
