Description

Fata Deum is a singleplayer god game asking "With the power of a god, who will you become?". As a powerful god you fights against up to four (AI) gods to rule a fantastic world and its mortals. These mortals act self-sufficient and need to be convinced to follow you. But how will you achieve this? Will you conquer or convince? Frighten or foster? Raise or ruin ? Lead or leave? Your choice!

History

In its very early steps in the begin of 2018 42 Bits Entertainment started as a One-Man-Show. Equipped with the vision of getting the god game genre back the founder Christoph Schulze was supported by the german local government (Film- und Medienstiftung NRW) to build up a first prototype. With the support of this prototype he was able to further spread the vision of bringing the god game genre back and to gather a team of experienced and talented game developers to fulfill this misson! Equipped with a bunch of new ideas the team behind Fata Deum was able to gather additional fundings from the local german government (Film- und Medienstiftung NRW) to continue the development on a larger scale. During Gamescom 2019 Fata Deum was shown to the audience the first time at the Indie Arena Booth! This was quite a success! Until today the team was able to gather over 5000 follower via social media (Facebook mostly), further increased the team size (over 10 people with 40+ years of game industry experience and over 15 titles shipped are now working on the project) and is heading to Kickstarter end of March 2020!
