Gods Will Be Watching this June

GodsWillBeWatching

Retro adventure game fans best be keeping a lookout for Gods Will Be Watching, Deconstructeam and Devolver Digital’s indie point-and-click thriller coming this June to PC/Mac/Linux via Steam, Humble Store and GOG.

Its sprite-based pixel art is incredibly detailed and atmospheric, for one. But the heavy emphasis on decision making and the consequences that will result from hard choices is what really promises to drive a powerful narrative experience. All signs are pointing to something pretty damn special here, folks.

Before watching the new teaser trailer, here’s a brief synopsis to bring you up to speed on the story and setting:

Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic “point and click thriller” centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas that will affect both the lives of your team and the people you’re are sworn to protect. 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. There’s no good or evil, just decisions, with only you and the gods as a judge to your actions.
