Deity Quest is a light-hearted RPG where you play as the ambitious young god Tyrus, who graduated #2 from the Ethereal Academy and is immediately assigned to a world to gather followers and gain power. Your goal is to become the Overgod of the planet, but the #1 student, your sassy rival Ryga, will try to thwart you at every turn. Support your followers with spells and items as they automatically fight enemies in fast-paced 6 vs. 6 battles. Convert enemies to become new followers and fight for you! Explore huge, procedurally generated locations, learn about deity society and the many gods you will compete with for power, and defeat your rivals in your quest to become the most influential god of all.
The second half of the game, parts 5-8, have been completed, with new quests, locations, and the conclusion of the story! Who murdered the Overgod of Aberos? Who gets to be the next Overgod? What strange and powerful unique followers are hidden in the game? I don't want to spoil too much, so most of you will have to wait until the full release on May 1st to find out. But, between now and then, I need to do a lot of final tweaks, polishing and debugging, and so I'm looking for some BETA testers to help! If you're interested, just send me a message or reply to this news post! Otherwise, all I'm going to share from the second half of the game are the following images:
I'll probably be quiet over the next two months as I finalize the game. But look forward to a new trailer and the release! If you are press and would like an early copy, let me know. I'll also be adding a starter guide to the game to the tutorial section soon!

Trading followers in Deity Quest is working now! I finished at just the right time too, because Words of Radiance just arrived :P

Sometimes I try too hard to conserve paper... my note pages have small scribbles in all corners/orientations, tough to find what I want :P

When I find a minor bug, I search around my code for similar problems - often finding nothing, but sometimes finding a more insidious bug!

I'm about halfway done with follower trading... should be done this week! You post a follower for trade, and then can view and accept offers

Hmm, one of the things on my TODO list is an editing pass of all the dialogue... It's already had one editing pass, maybe that's enough? :P

@nicolastokyo That'd help a lot - most of my testers are on Windows! Sent you a DM, let me know what you think.
