Gods Will Be Watching is a game about hard decisions and moral dilemmas in order to survive. A point’n’click adventure which presents a series of dramatic puzzles where not only the mathematic outcome counts but also the ethical approach to the problem. There's 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?


Gods Will Be Watching was created as an entry for the Ludum Dare 26 game jam, developed in less than 72 hours with "Minimalism" as theme, with just a single stage and point'n'click mechanics, a bleak surviving simulator was born. Setting the premises of an interesting story machine, with great emotional charge and intentionally difuse inspiring plot elements, this minigame served as a good prototype for our current project: A big game about despair, commitment and self-justified sacrifices; in which the player set the rules of behaviour.


  • 6 levels with many harsh challenges and possible solutions.
  • +10 hours of gameplay for the true survivors (dozens in the likely case you keep dying).
  • New cinematics that will expand the game's background.
  • Outstanding soundtrack with more than 10 tracks by Fingerspit.
  • Extensive list of challenges with tricky difficulty for the most stubborn survivors.
  • The Empathy System: player actions affect the whole group's attitude.
