A First Person Stealth Adventure Puzzler
- placed in a unique fantasy setting full of mystic dungeons and ancient temples -

Release: 2014


We're just two guys who had their first contact with Unity in September 2013 and we've been working on this in our free-time since then. At first we simply fooled around to learn everything, but it started to grow so quickly that we decided to make a complete game out of this. It's going to be an action-adventure type of game with heavy reliance on stealth and it will be free2play.

Hey there!

Time for an update on the project’s current state of development! Once again we put a lot of time and hard work into the game, so we were able to build up the remaining levels, finish the story line and implement some interesting new content and gameplay elements: a new class of enemies, additional puzzle challenges and much more things that are worth to be discovered.

So what is left to do?

Until now, all the work has been done with the free version of unity, which brings along certain restrictions to the game’s quality level. We decided to upgrade our software and polish things to increase the player’s experience for the upcoming release version of The Artifact of Gods. So you can expect an even deeper atmosphere, enhanced lighting effects and improved texturing in the final version. Also there are some bugs to be fixed and a lot of testing to be done. Hopefully we can release the game within the next two months, so watch out for the release date :)

We also decided to add a subtitle for the final release of The Artifact of Gods, which is now called

The Artifact of Gods – Resurrection

You may guess that this is an allusion to the storyline, and we wanted to clearly separate the project from a potential future sequel.

As you mention, it is possible. We've not tested any linux build so far and we won't support it while we're in development. It's simply too much overhead, sorry.
Once we've reached the final full release, we might rethink this.

I gave the game a go but unfortunately I'm dreadful at stealth games, so not sure what help my video can be in terms of game design and whatnot. But hey, I gave it a shot. xD It was fun, although I didn't even get past the first level..I messed up really badly. It definitely has a lot of potential.

Thank you very much for giving our game a try. I'm glad to hear it was fun. The video was a nice watch.
It's also not entirely your fault that you died so often :D
Switching between the windows and mac builds has introduced a bug into the lighting. The level was darker than intended, making it more difficult to get past the traps. We are very sorry for that!

If you want to give it a second shot, try our hotfix build 20140217.
You definitely helped us to realize this bug! Many thanks.

Thank you and all the people already following the project.
There is still much to develop for us. Our demo is just a little appetizer.
We'd be happy to hear feedback from other gamers!
