The Father of all Gods, Oberon, has become a myth even to the immortals of the universe, to those willful spirits that have ascended beyond the form of humanity and now flit through the tides of the universe as naturally as walking occurs to mortal men. You are one of these immortal beings, once human but now a divinity that seeks power through worship, seeking to guide your faithful in this darkness from the dangers of all sides.

There is much ruin and destruction - wrecks in the battlefield of the gods, but you are yet capable of sculpting planets into hospitable, even lush, wonderlands for your followers. Their temples will exalt you, and in your name, they will launch great fleets to expand your divine empire. You will shield them from the stellar radiation, the envy of their rivals, and much darker entities that lurk between the space of the cosmos.

But mere benevolence is not always enough.

There will be enemies, but you need not rely only upon your posthuman followers to deal with them; the primal forces of the universe are at your disposal. Disrupt the asteroid belts, plunging a hail of destruction upon the entire stellar system of your foes. Kidnap their planets into a pocket universe of our holding, their populations ready to be dealt with at your will. Or simply destroy their suns in artificial supernovas, leaving nothing alive in their wake.

There was a time when such acts would have been thought horrific. But now, as the end of the universe approaches, as the forces of entropy threaten to extinguish all life, light and hope, you must gather what power you can to brace against the incoming horrors of the Black Sun.

  • Command the power to destroy entire star systems
  • Create raw planets and their moons from asteroid belts
  • Develop an intricate economy with dozens of resources
  • Upgrade and develop your planets with gleaming cities
  • Construct powerful fortresses to crush your foes
  • Erect monumental temples in your own honor
  • Command vast fleets faithful to your godliness
  • Duel ancient monsters in the depths of space

Gods and Idols is free to download, and free to play. If you want to support us there will be an ingame shop where you can purchase Essence, a resource used for many things in the game. Essence is also gained by just playing the game. We'd love to hear your feedback on this, please let us know if we screw up!

Gods and Idols reviews and comments

Early access review I discovered this game by chance and I must say that I was blown away by the sensation of freedom that one feels in this game. Sensation of freedom that I hadn't felt since mankind big MMO who has now died for several months already. To return to the game in itself you will have to incarnate a kind of God who can walk in space as he seems good and you to find a favorable solar system where you can create your first planet that will be the premice of your future Empire GA Lactic. Presented like this I let you imagine the enormous potential that emerges from this game and how much it can make you dream. The game is only at these first buildings also it is necessary to forgive the bugs and other crashes. In addition, we find quickly enough to not have much to do because all the features have not yet been implemented. In any case I hope wholeheartedly that the developers will keep their promises and improve the game in the right direction. Also know that I do not usually write evaluation for the games on steam but this game there touched me so much < 3 that I wished to give my opinion on what I hope will be a polished Pearl veriatble with the love of its authors! So if like me you love sandbox games in space do not hesitate, try it and especially support it!

Early access review Hello to francophones and others. Gods and idols puts you in the skin of a God who will have to take care of his little people by building and establishing production lines. Starting from the beginning: the creation of your planet! Hey Yes, with a simple Pebble, you will have to find a balance in the ore/life/and gas. Once this step is crossed, the adventure begins... For anno players, you will not be exotic... Example: to produce meat it takes grain that will feed the animals that will become meat. -To produce milk is the same thing-to make fruit it takes trees-etc... Everything is a matter of organization but that's not all! Indeed it will be necessary to assign citizens! These same citizens appear as time passes because the game is in real time! Even if you are absent the game continues! Graphically it is not tip top but the game is in early access so there is nothing to climb on its big horses besides the possible depth of the game will totally mask this potential weakness. Of course the game just begins its adventure it still takes work before getting something incredible. Many games, at their launch have experienced problems and do not recommend this game for this kind of trivia is silly. I recommend for the lovers of God game/anno/lover of game management and strategies!
