GodZ is the first strategy social game produced by Yucca
Studios. Creating this game came as an idea, 2 years ago and since
then its developers have been working very hard. They searched and
found some investment to conceive the game, but not 100% what they
needed. Never the less, in June 2012 they started working fully on
developing the game because they believe that GodZ will be the
first of a new generation of social games.
“Through GodZ we aim to prove that high quality social
games are possible and not merely work on clicking and long loading
times. On GodZ everything has a meaning and a purpose, a story. Its
strategy will lead the thinking of the gamer and develop his mind
in terms of strategic thinking. More than half of Facebook gamers
play games. And yet, there only a few social games conceived having
hard core gamers in mind. GodZ is their game. We want to allow this
community to play a game that brings them into Facebook
“Unleash Your Power”
is the slogan that defines the game’s concept.
GodZ gamer will have the power of one of the 3
gods that are determined to defeat
Afexha, the Death goddess, and its great villain
GodZ story begins on ancient times, prior to the
moment the player will find, with the creation of a universe with
two powerful creatures. The initial
Kesha, goddess of Life and
Afexha the terrible Death goddess. Two new gods
were created from the conflict raised between these two gods,
Sasha, Love goddess - malicious and beautiful
Thon, Fire god, magic and fearless; and
Sanon, god of War, fair and implacable.
That’s when the player starts and chooses which powers we
prefers to start its quest of fight and conquer in the game,
determined to defeat
Afexha. The player will have to start a religion,
or choose to join one that already exists. The goal is to get
together the largest number of believers to make its power
GodZ is much more than just a social game.
It’s a game with a great part of strategy and RPG.
Unlike the majority of all other social games, this game will have
an end. No matter of how the player runs the game, there is a
parallel story with chapters. Each chapter tells part of
GodZ story. Every time a chapter is finished, the
players gets into a new phase of the game.
concept art is inspired on Maya, Astec and Inca
civilizations, mixed with a great tone of technology, leading to a
new style: Mayatech.
GodZ promises to make social gamers brains moving. So
here’s what the beta testers have to say about it:
