Gods Will Be Watching
DEVELOPED BY: Deconstructeam
PUBLISHED BY: Devolver Digital
Moral choices are a staple of contemporary games, often acting as their core gameplay element. However, many titles fail to make such dilemmas convincing – very often, the decision to cut a moral corner simply isn’t enticing enough. Spain’s Deconstructeam approached the issue differently, building gameplay around numbers and percentages. The amount of sweat we’ll pour trying to follow our conscience before pragmatism awakens is entirely up to us. The authors offer a warning, though: gods will be watching. But they will not tell us if it was worth it.
A studio based in Valencia – they look for new narrative experiences in games. “Gods Will Be Watching” is their commercial debut, based on a prototype of the same name developed during the Ludum Dare 26 game jam.
