Deity Quest is a light-hearted RPG where your goal is to convert followers and gain power to become the Overgod of Aberos. Use your divine magic to support your followers in fast-paced, strategic 6 vs. 6 battles, and compete with other deities in your quest to reach the top!
I wanna be the very best, like no God ever was. Alright, so before I begin the review itself, I wanted to apologize for my disappearance. I had a PC die, and then got lazy with with everything. It’s not like I’m paid to do this. I do it for fun and to work my way through backlog. Well I say fun, but some of these games… I digress. Onto the review!
Deity Quest is a top down RPG/Adventure game. It can be controlled with the mouse or keyboard in multiple control schemes. You navigate the world, collect followers and battle. The battles themselves are almost entirely automated, with you only needing to heal or convert enemies into followers.
The story is simple. You are a recent graduate of a deity school, and you declare that you will be the new OverGod of Aberos. Your classmate/rival then challenges you, and you have to compete to take control. As you progress, you collect followers, either defeat other Gods/Goddesses or make truces with them, and increase your deity rank.
This game is a mixed bag when it comes to graphics. Some of them are really well done and good looking. The problem is only some of them are. They make stuff clash on screen when you look at nicer things than the graphics around them.
Overall, I’d have to give Deity Quest a dough score. It has stuff in it to make it an interesting title, but it doesn’t feel super polished, the battles are lackluster enough to make me background the game whenever I enter them, and the music is sadly forgettable. If you want a simple “Pokemon clone” as the developer puts it, pick it up though.
