POLYGOD Features:

  • Infinite level possibilities – maps are randomly generated and providing a tonne of replayability. But also shareable among friends in order to encourage competition with full leaderboard support
  • Brutal Difficulty curve – Only the gamers with the most skill will ascend to Godhood…
  • Super fast paced and addictive – requires hundreds of hours to master, a speed-runner/hardcore gamer’s dream
  • Online co-op and versus multiplayer – Allows for competitive fun to be had among friends featuring daily leaderboards.
  • Skill based gameplay – Building upon a principle that if one lacks skill. Then you can also substitute with strategy and vice versa. Eg. So those lacking in skills strategically will be just as good as skilful nonstrategic players.
  • Unique ‘Blessings’ based weapon customisation system – Combine and stack ‘blessings’ to create hundreds of thousands of unique weapons. Also blessings combine to give a high level of depth. Deep understanding is essential to fully utilise the blessing system. Which also gives a high replay value
  • Classic FPS controls – POLYGOD’s controls are reminiscent of Quake 3 and the original Doom. While bringing a classic gameplay vibe back having been absent since the 90’s!

Releasing on Steam:

POLYGOD rogue-like shooter is available now on Steam Early Access and Humble Store for $9.99 USD. Releasing fully on August 17th with a price increase for Linux, Mac and Windows.
