This. Is. Amazing.

We didn’t expect this. Gods Will Be Watching was our little minimalistic puzzle game for Ludum Dare 26, and we were happy with it, but, seeing it appearing it all over the internet, and receiving more than 10.000 plays per day was totally unexpected.

We are overwhelmed. Took us several days to recover from the 72 hours effort and being able to face all of the blog posts, tweets, mails, gameplays at youtube… we need to thank so many people!!!!

Here’s a selection of GWBW‘s unbelievable (at least for us) journey on the press:

Gods Will Be Watching Is The Saddest Survival Sim (Rock Paper Shotgun)

A Survival Sim That (Mostly) Takes Place On A Single Screen (Kotaku)

Gods Will Be Watching is a bleak, beautiful free survival sim (


In spanish:

Gods Will Be Watching causa sensación (Hobby Consolas)

La supervivencia minimalista de Gods Will Be Watching (El Píxel Ilustre)

Gods Will Be Watching, un simulador de supervivencia minimalista (


Seeing people playing the game on youtube was something magical:

This mashup video with John Carpenter’s The Thing really moved us :’)

Also the game got featured on Game Jolt!!

Will Gods Be Watching?

We hope so! Since the game got a great acceptance both by press and public, and a lot of people told us they want more, we’d love to expand Sgt Burden’s and his crew universe. A lot of ideas came to us during this week on how to develop the game concept further without losing his essence, and we are thrilled with what we have to offer in the future, so stay tunned!
