The Fall of Gods

is one of the best indie game we played this year. The world is immense and varied and fits well with the amazing custom soundtracks. The scenario is not one of the most original ones, however there are some surprises in the game, and it reminds us of good old-Zelda (*love*)
You really must try this game, not only it supports Dedicated Indie Creator (GeexGames) but you will take a good bite of good old-school action-RPG

It would take you around 10hours to finish the game, unless you want to complete all the side quests and the chain-trading quests.
The game supports keyboard, or mouse or pad control

World : 19/20
(Let me see that Here)

Music : 18/20

Scenario : 17/20

Final Score : 18/20

Throughout the year I’ve had the opportunity to play some amazing indie games, and there are so many more that I still haven’t played. I feel like I really discovered some gems when Honor in Vengeance II was in peer review, I had a lot of extra time to play other people’s games and a few of the games on this list I discovered during that time period.These games are in no particular order, and most are XBLIG, since I literally played 100+ of them this year!Image from The Fall of Gods

The Fall of Gods (XBLIG)

This game is a perfect example of how music can make or break a game. The soundtrack of this title set the mood for a super nostalgic adventure that had a very thoughtful story and fun gameplay.


There was a point in The Fall of Gods, half way through a trade-chain, where it became obvious to me how much I loved the game. I don’t want to tell you what it was, it wasn’t even a significant moment, just the tiniest of touches that shows how much a developer cares about their game.Trade-chains are a fairly big part of The Fall of Gods. You’ll be wandering the world trading various trinkets for other trinkets all with the ultimate aim of getting an all-important trinket or as at the end of a few of the chains, a level up. If you’re familiar with Zelda you’ll be familiar with this kind of gameplay; the world is full of people that need specific items and it’s up to you to find them. This is something that’s always really annoyed me about Zelda. There, the hints are vague at best and it’s often pure luck whether or not you’ll speak to an NPC and just happen to have the correct item. Most of your time is spent wandering aimlessly, hoping for that chance encounter.


The Fall of Gods is a great example of a 2D retro-style action RPG that remembers a time when we were expected to complete quests. it's a bit like a fast-paced version of Zelda for NES or SNES, but with more magical attacks. Finishing the game will take you about ten hours, To get the same value out of a $60 game you'd have to play it for 200 hours. And of course with The Fall of Gods your purchase will help to directly support an independent developer, which should provide you with a smug sense of satisfaction no quest can give you.

I still need to buy this game. I've heard so many good things about it! Any estimate on when chapter 2 will be released? Or at least when we'll see some screenshots/trailer for chapter 2?

Good point, as an indie as struggling a bit to release chapter 2, I've lost my game design (He was offered a good position in Seatles :) )...But at least I could post some screenshot...And some news musics ;-)
Good idea
