Play the Full Version of the God Game from Eat Create Sleep and Lead Your People To Survival Next Month
Independent developer Eat Create Sleep is proud to announce the launch of Crest, an indirect god sim, coming March 8th on PC. The game has been in early access but is now due for full release next month on Steam, Humble Store, Greenman Gaming and Itch.io and available on PC, Mac and Linux.
In Crest, you become a god and try to control your followers using commandments, however free will leaves these open to interpretation. Will you create a flourishing civilization or lead them into cannibalism?
“We introduced a range of creative and talented individuals to the team to achieve our vision of Crest and it’s been an exciting adventure” said Martin Greip, CEO and Art Director. “We’re incredibly excited to finally release the full version of the game and we hope it provides a meaningful and profound experience. Our goal is to ask questions with our games and let the player explore the answers.”
Crest takes place in a stylised Sub-Saharan landscape and explores concepts of human behaviour, religion and nature. It adds to the traditional god game genre with an indirect influence mechanic which produces uncertain outcomes. Observe how AI behaviour evolves as a result of your decisions which affect the interdependent circle of humans, animals and nature. Micromanage the world, progress by unlocking new words and interact with and lead your people by issuing commandments.
“It’s possible, then, for humans to misinterpret your commands. Just like in real religions, I guess.” – PC Gamer
“Crest’s ambition is a good and interesting one: to create a systemic god-game around manipulating an AI’s programmatic grammar, and it did give me two procedural stories I am glad to have had” – Rock, Paper, Shotgun
“Its indirect nature, consistent challenge and the ever-present threat of failure make Crest a truly a unique game.” – Pixel Judg
