This Gods Will Be Watching trailer made me wince


12:30 PM on 07.02.2014



I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that we're not going to feel good about ourselves after playing Deconstructeam's point-and-click thriller Gods Will Be Watching. The game is out July 24 for Windows, Mac, and Linux on Steam, Humble, and GOG.com for $9.99, with a collector's edition selling for $19.99 that includes the soundtrack, a digital art book, and comic.

Gods Will be Watching is centered around moral dilemmas and "there's no good or evil, just decisions." Some of the violence going on in this trailer does look unnecessarily out of context, but one example given is that players will "choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide." Sounds like one of the more straightforward decisions, actually.

Six separate puzzle-like scenarios tell a larger, interstellar story and if you can stomach it, this should be one to remember.

Review: Gods Will Be Watching

Gods Will Be Watching is a tough game. It puts the player in positions that they'd rather not be in and asks them to make difficult choices. In order to succeed at a mission, you may have to do unthinkable things, betray your morals, and become a monster just to survive a little longer. It's also tough in another sense: the game is bloody hard. more

Wow, a Humble Indie Bundle I'm going to buy

It's been some time since I've last gone in on a Humble Indie Bundle. These days, if a game is around long enough to wind up packaged at a discounted rate, it's already made its way into my library, or I'm just not interested...more

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more
