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.

I started playing a week ago, but this game is super cool and creative. How you’re able to write 4+ years of content into a zero player game I will never understand. Keep up the amazing work! :D

Oh, THIS is going to be very interesting! Giddy with excitement.

Devs, you have a habit of fantastic twists of creativity that I never see coming. Thank you for keeping this game fresh and wonderful!

I wonder if dozing off while fishing could occasionally indulge as well.

You could have a chance of gathering a glyph after being resurrected.

Any update for Windows Phone for that? (yes, my hero still does use Lumia 950 as an extra pet)

Aljian Oct 11 2019 20:27

So, we now have more power.
Eventually, we shall rule the devs HQ! Muahahahaha.

((The updates may not all have an effect on me or my hero for a long while, but still, everything you do is greatly appreciated!

My name is Ben Dover. I’m 19 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Nowhere, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Non-existent department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don’t smoke, but I occasionally drink. I’m in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I’m trying to explain that I’m a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn’t lose to anyone.

Will there be a new pantheon to cover this new long term quest? I would love to add another badge to my god page!
