The indie thriller Gods Will Be Watching, from Deconstructeam and Devolver Digital, will be arriving for PC, Mac and Linux via Steam, Humble and GOG this June.
Starting as a standout entry in the Ludum Dare 26 competition, Gods Will Be Watching, developer Deconstructeam has greatly expanded the original story of a space exploration team stranded on an unfamiliar world faced with ethical conundrums and moral dilemmas.
The updated and expanded Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic “point and click thriller” centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face intriguing puzzles and tough decisions that will affect their entire crew’s wellbeing. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide.
“Our team set out to make a new breed of point and click adventure and capture the feeling of having to make heavy decisions with sometimes dark consequences,” said Jordi de Paco, founder of developer Deconstructeam. “We understand that Gods Will Be Watching is a departure for the genre but think we have an opportunity to break new ground in storytelling and the weight of decisions.”
