Fata Deum is an upcoming god game inspired by the “god games of old” like Black & White.

As a god, you will be able to shape the world as you see fit and mold settlements and townsfolk in your image. How do you intend to do so? It’s all down to your choice and the moral campus that guides you.

German game developer 42 Bits Entertainment has announced Fata Deum, where you play as a god trying to gain believers and compete with other gods for influence and power. Like previous games in the genre, the more believers you have, the more powerful you become.

To use the power in your possession, you will have to manage your mana reservoir wisely to shape your settlements, devotees, and the fabric of life itself. The more powerful you grow, the more godly skills you possess.

As a god, you get to choose your path. Your choices directly influence your settlement and the world under your domain. Will you shine your divine light to help crops grow, or will you harvest your believers’ souls for your undead army? Will you inspiring kindness and compassion in your followers or strike fears in their hearts?

Whichever you choose to do, you must remember that humanity has a will of its own and that you need them as much as they want a god to guide them. Perhaps even more.

During your campaign, you will battle the ancient gods of Violence, Deceit, Fertility, and Pleasure. To beat them, you need to find the strategy that fits you best, or you can follow your moral campus and hope for the best.

There are several unique features in Fata Deum that make it stand out from other god sims. For instance, day and night represent different gameplay phases: you influence the mortals’ dreams during the night and support or sabotage their actions with powerful wonders during the day. But alas, you don’t get to have a giant pet.

After two years in development and a successful Kickstarter campaign, Fata Deum will launch in Steam Early Access in spring 2021. The developer hopes to recruit the community to help shape the game with constant feedback before the full launch.
