The premise sounds just like the outlander movie. Well I guess that's what you wanted right? Looks very interesting :) I'll be following this.

I help you with promotional details if you like to help get the game some more attention from Games Media as well as write a more descriptive summary at the top of the page. I see a lot of potential in this game as it could turn out to be a series that everyone likes or introduces new game play elements to video games

I should mention if you need funding for your game you should sign up for this site Fig.co

The Link should take you to a page explaining how it works and how much they take from the campaign funds.

The main premise of your game is that a spaceship pilot crashes on an alien world where "Gods" are real. Seems a little to simple if you ask me how about the Gods that are already on the planet are just other space travelers who have also crash landed on the planet, but have done so much earlier than the main character and the locals who live on the planet don't know what their technology is and explain it way as magic and it's up to the Player to decide if he wants the locals to worship him as a God or if he wants to help them advance their technology forward that would be an interesting to do. Also are you working on this alone or do you have a group because if you need help with publishing I can submit it to Steam Greenlight under my account so yo can sell it because this game if marketed correctly could be great starting point if you want to breakout in Game Development also if I help market the game it would be good for me as I want to become a video game publisher.

Thanks for your input Devil! The premise of the game is very simplified indeed in the description. Your ideas are really cool and some of them are close to what's actually happening in the game. Also thanks for pointing out about fig.co as we will need funding in order to finish this game. Currently there are 2 of us working on the project.

If you need any help just let me know as I said before I want to be a video game publisher, but I'm just starting out like you are.
