Godville, Oct 09 2019

This news is for the players that have been here for a while and already managed to complete all the main goals: constructing a temple, building an ark, collecting twos of every kind and even awakening of an own boss.

Not having a goal to achieve is a bit unhealthy for both gods and heroes. It’s time to introduce a next epic deed, next major milestone. What is an intrinsic quality of a deity? Of course a creation of a world!

A dramatic event like this will surely require some preparations. What was at the beginning of a world? It’s said that it was a word. Probably, more than one. Most likely a tome of words. So, let’s try writing one. Luckily, every Godville god has an overconfident storyteller at their will, known to use up dozens of diaries on a daily basis. Let’s see how he expresses himself in this novel form – composing of a Book of Creation.

Usual heroic writings, though, won’t work here. A world can’t be created from random gibberish, it requires unique scriptural code. A hero should dive into cryptography and get the right knowledge glyph by glyph. Four glyphs will make one word, a thousand words — the Book.

Where to get the right words? There are few options for that. The first one is very dear to any hero — sleep. Every true adventurer occasionally indulges in dreaming while resting in a town. Champions tasked with the Book assignment will see divine writings in their dreams and redraw them into their Book. The second source is even more familiar: a hero can learn few glyphs as a reward for finishing a side job. That’s all for now, but there will be more word learning options in one of the upcoming game updates.

Of course, Godville is still a Zero Player Game. A hero can compose the Book all by himself, without any help. As it’s usual for the major goals, this process will take a year or two – patience is a godly virtue.

One important thing: a hero will start composing the Book only after his boss-monster has been assembled. The first boss (and only the first one) can now awake automatically in a few weeks after all the necessary ingredients have been collected. A notice line in the Lab tells when auto-awake will happen (make sure to update your Android or iOS app to see it). If you want to postpone first boss awakening you can cancel the timer by deleting any boss part from the Lab – though now it’s recommended to awaken the first one as soon as possible.

Fantastic! I’ve always wondered what the next goal would be and glyphs, words and books sounds like a good one. Good luck to the people out there starting on it!

The first thing Tak did, he wrote himself.

The second thing Tak did, he wrote the Laws.

The third thing Tak did, he wrote the World.

After about 4 years ‘playing’ I’m finally closing in on my temple, I’ve got a long way to go to get to this new content, but I’m ecstatic to see something still being done for this game after all this time! A wonderful addition, thanks for all your time and effort!
