Crest is a religion simulator set in a stylized sub-saharan setting that delivers a new take on the god game genre. Your only means of interaction with your followers, and therefore influence on the world, is by issuing commandments. How these commandments are interpreted and remembered is not set in stone. What you write and what experiences they have with the environment is the basis for their religion.

In the new update you'll now be able to explore other islands as well and grow your civilization even bigger. The update includes hippos, islands, terraforming and much more. The very long list of all changes can be found below.
