GODHOOD promotional poster

About:

GODHOOD details the interactions between Riff, a young writer, and his original character, Avadra, who suddenly and inexplicably manifests herself in real life through circumstances unknown! Knowing what his character is capable of and fearing the worst, Riff sets out to masquerade as one of her followers in an attempt to prevent the very events he wrote about from taking place.

The gameplay revolves around attacking enemies to the rhythm of the music in order to build up flow, unleashing massive explosive attacks on down beats to defeat hordes of enemies in a single blow. Players can switch between rhythms depending on the given situation and can even defy the rhythm if the moment demands it, but true power lies within the explosive attacks and to perform them, you need to keep your cool.

Characters:

Riff:

A not so quick reference of Riff!

  • A quiet writer who happily lives alone
  • Writing a story about the actions of a draconic self-proclaimed deity named Avadra and their effect on her own world and other worlds alike.
  • Is also a beginner tailor who works for a fabric shop, from which he supplies and supports his cosplaying hobby.
    • His first cosplaying project, after multiple attempts, is a robe similar to that of a character from his story; the one shown in the reference
  • Really likes his characters and his story in a fictional context
  • Really does NOT like his characters suddenly existing and destroying the town!

Avadra:

A not so quick reference of Avadra!

  • Explosive, both behaviourally and physically, her presence is extremely powerful, intimidating, even slightly terrifying, even if she doesn’t mean to be.
  • Having a great distaste for strict organization, mundanity and those more powerful than her, she desires greatly to be someone who make a difference, someone who can actually change the world.
    • This reason alone is why she decided to come here in the first place, to a place where she most definitely can be the most powerful person in the world.
  • On the topic of powers, she has quite a few of them
    • Can produce huge explosions from the palm of her hand
    • Has the ability summon shadowy servants referred to as the Wills
    • Can teleport and open up portals
    • Most importantly, she can give others these powers as well
  • Has a genuine, sincere appreciation for anyone who is willing to show her admiration, but only on the condition that they are less powerful than her

Technical:

GODHOOD has been programmed from scratch, featuring a custom game engine as well as a custom graphics engine! It is written in C++ 11 and is based on the GLFW 3.0.

Bio:

Hi! My name is Nick and I am currently acting as the sole programmer, artist and writer behind GODHOOD! I have roughly six years experience as a programmer and just about four years experience as an artist. I'm not going to deny that my art may currently be rather amateur, and without any industry experience, I may not be the world's best coder, but I have learned an incredible amount just working on this title and no matter what happens, I can most certainly say that I will be proud of what I've created!

The music for the first level of GODHOOD was composed by Craig S. Barnes. Check out his work HERE!

A ton has happened over the past few weeks, more related to marketing than actually developing the game, but the time has finally come! The GODHOOD kickstarter is live!


Additionally, check out the full length trailer!

Finally, I just wanted to extend a big thanks for your support! You have my gratitude (and Avadra's)!

AVADRA IS PLEASED
