The Watchlist: Gods Will Be Watching

Title: Gods Will Be Watching
Developer: Deconstructeam
Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, IOS, Android
Release planned for Early 2014
"Gods Will Be Watching is a game about hard decissions and moral dilemmas in order to survive. A series of dramatic puzzles where not only the mathematic outcome counts but also the ethical approach to the problem. There's also no good or evil, just decisions, with only you as the judge of your actions. Is eating your friends the best way to stay alive, or just the easier?"
The original Gods Will Be Watching was a short minimal project created for Ludum Dare. You and five others had to survive forty days in a cold barren landscape, where your choices decided who lived or died (or was eaten) and your actions mended or destroyed relationships, fended off bandits, sacrificed others for the good of the group, and more. It was like a bleak, dark game where every choice was grey, either bad or worse. Thanks to tons of critical acclaim and an incredibly successful Indiegogo campaign, Deconstructeam will be taking that grim premises and expanding it into a full fledged release.
This expanded version will consist of six scenarios, ranging from the forty-day survival challenge of the original to controlling a hostage situation to withholding information while being tortured. The game will be fully animated and include a New Game Plus mode, unlockable cinematics that will flesh out the story, and online leaderboards.
Gods Will Be Watching will be released in February 2014. You can play the Ludum Dare version here and learn more about the game on its Indiegogo page.
