Against the Godds
A downloadable game for Windows
Against the Godds is a 2d top-down tile-based action combat game. You discover, build, craft and fight your way to victory against two Godds - god-like creatures hiding inside dungeons and evil lairs.
AtG takes place in a fantasy world. The map is proceduraly generated and you can watch it appear. There are several biomes - grasslands with villages, dungeons with maze-like rooms...
There are many weapons and armors to craft, materials to gather typically from corpses of your enemies, and spells to weave.
You can build a house, cave, village or whatever you want. AtG features various tiles and biomes in similar fashion to Minecraft or Terraria.
The combat is really fast-paced and tactical. In many cases running around swinging your sword will only get you killed. Baiting monsters into killing each-other, or dodging their attack by covering behind a wall.
Spell-casting uses an innovative system, where you can use any spell you crafted in conjunction with any other to combine their effects. This results in combos such us Fire-Guard-Fly, which blocks an enemy spell, flies in a straight line and burns enemies. When casting a spell, symbols appear over a character, making it possible to predict it's effects and quickly cast a counter-spell.
AtG also has multiplayer features. You can start a game and let your friends join you on your adventures. Or kill them, that is on you. The multiplayer works best over local network, but public servers can also be created.
