Gods Will be Watching looks in on PC’s this month

Deconstructeam’s intriguing retro-styled adventure game about choice and consequence is almost here.

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 that examine a multitude of mature themes ranging from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Players are faced with incredibly difficult ethical and moral choices as their mental fortitude and personal limits are tested in every scenario. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide.

Excited yet? I was, halfway through that description. Gods Will Be Watching sounds like it goes a few steps beyond just about any other game ever that had ‘choice’ as a main mechanic. It could flat-out be one of the games emerging from the indie space to watch this year for some pretty lofty honors by the time 2014 rolls out.

The game will be available in a pair of flavors, standard and collector’s. The standard edition is set to cost $9.99 USD and will include just the game itself, while the collector’s edition will go for $19.99 USD and will boast :

  • Gods Will Be Watching Official Soundtrack – More than 20 mesmerizing tracks by composer Fingerspit in high-quality MP3 files.
  • Digital Art Book – 50-page of concept art, digital paintings, and design illustrations from the production and development of Gods Will Be Watching.
  • Digital Comic Book – 40-page comic from Dayjob Studio that serves as a prologue to events of Gods Will Be Watching detailing the backstory of Sgt. Burden and Xenolifer.

Available right now for pre-order, you can get either edition of the game here for 10% off the asking price here on Steam, or on the game’s official site.
