Heroic age Aztec gods!

Hello Folks!

Our last post depicted general features, units, and buildings that will become available to the Aztecs in the third age. Now, before uploading the third age gameplay video we want to show the Aztec minor gods that will be available to the player in order to reach the Heroic age.

Just note that god powers are not enabled in the current game version, those will be worked at the very end, and so for now you will only see the current god power ideas that we plan them to have. The gods’ art shown is not the final version, we don’t have our own art ready for any of the 3rd Age minor gods, and so the displayed art is just for reference but will be ultimately changed once we get one of our own.

Bro, these monsters are sick! Not only do they look horrific in all of the best ways possible, but I love how close to the vanilla aesthetic they are.

Fantastic work!
