'Polygod' (ALL) Also Coming To Xbox One And Switch - Screens & Trailer

Polygod is a rogue-like, randomly generated, first person shooter, which features a brutal difficulty curve, epic boss fights with arena-shooter style online multiplayer/co-op.

Polygod is a rogue-like, randomly generated FPS where you are an assassin known only as "Faceless the Blessed".

You must battle the minions of malignant Gods and their Holy Champions in an epic event known as the Trial of the Gods. Each level is randomly generated and features successive Altars of Worship where you exchange your Souls for Blessings (which are like power ups). Blessings combine and stack to create unique effects which will help you survive the brutal challenges in your quest to attain Godhood.

In the PolyGod universe, death is necessarily permanent but with each new game comes a unique first-time experience. The art style is inspired by the meta-physical surrealist artist Giorgio de Chirico who is famously revered for his eerie mood and strange artificiality of cityscapes.

Polygod also features Arena Shooter multi-player with randomly generated maps and a variety of planned game modes. Currently in Early Access, players can play free for all matches on randomly generated maps where the first person to a set number of kills is the victor. Future planned game modes include team death-match and a variation of capture the flag, involving altars and blessings.


Polygod has been designed for hardcore gamers who love challenging game experiences like Binding of Isaac, Dark Souls and Cuphead,” commented Dominic Obojkovits, co-founder, Lead Designer & Programmer at Krafted Games. “With a different gameplay experience every time, the randomly generated levels will challenge even the most hardcore of the hardcore! We’ve implemented an unexpectedly deep level of weapon customization and progression within the gameplay and believe gamers will find elements to keep them coming back for just one more run, over and over again!”

Key Features:

  • Infinite level possibilities - maps are randomly generated and seeded providing a tonne of replayability, but then shareable among friends in order to encourage competition with full leaderboard support
  • Brutal Difficulty curve - Only the most skilled gamers will ascend to Godhood…
  • Online co-op and versus multiplayer - Allows for competitive fun to be had among friends featuring daily leaderboards
  • Skill based gameplay - Built upon a principle that if one lacks skill, it can be substituted for strategy and vice versa. Eg. unskilled strategic players will be just as good as skillful nonstrategic players.
  • Unique ‘Blessings’ based weapon customisation system - Combine and stack ‘blessings’ to create hundreds of thousands of unique weapons, blessings combine to give a high level of depth. Deep understanding is required to fully utilise the blessing system which in turn gives a high replay value
  • Classic FPS controls - POLYGOD’s controls are reminiscent of Quake 3 and the original Doom, bringing a classic gameplay vibe back having been absent since the 90’s!
  • Super fast paced and addictive - requires hundreds of hours to master, a speed-runner/hardcore gamer's dream

Polygod will launch worldwide for Xbox One, PC (currently on Steam Early Access) and Nintendo Switch in early 2018 for £16.19 / $14.99 / €16.59.
