Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic “point and click thriller” centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas that will affect both the lives of your team and the people you’re are sworn to protect. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide. There’s no good or evil, just decisions, with only you and the gods as a judge to your actions.

While the differences between mobile and PC hardware are getting smaller, they were still the biggest challenge with this adaptation. This is an area where our technical knowledge and experienced team really made a difference, and allowed us to overcome issues that other studios might have had difficulty with. We also had our custom GameBaker environment which helped a great deal in getting the existing UI code working well on touch devices – you can read more about GameBaker here.
