Developer Roosevelt Games has launched a Kickstarter for their real-time-strategy/role-playing-game hybrid GODS, with plans to bring the game to Switch.
In GODS, players take the role of a god in a fantasy setting, and must amass worshipers and power in order to become the supreme deity of the world. This ambitious title not only aims to be an RTS game where players must fight against the armies of other gods, but also an RPG game where players can possess any character and complete quests in third-person perspective.
Check out the Kickstarter trailer below, along with a some additional press details.
Roosevelt Games LLC is proud to present GODS, a multiplayer RTS/RPG god game for PC, XBOX One®, PS4® and Nintendo Switch®. It supports Oculus Rift®, HTC Vive® and PSVR®. The company will release GODS in the third quarter of 2020.
In GODS, the players can build a civilization, fight enemy gods, raise powerful creatures and take part in multiplayer games (e.g., death matches, two vs. two or creature battle tournaments). Also, the players can possess an actor to complete his/her quests from a third-person RPG-style game-play.
