A downloadable game for Windows

This game I had to put on haitus to revisit completely at another time. I wrote up a good postmortem about my experience creating what I do currently have in the game at the moment. You can find this postmortem at the link below.

Also, feel free to pop in on my devlog and give me some criticisms or comments. Thanks to everyone who had interested and support me during the process!

This is a game about raising a deity of the land in conjunction with the land.

Using the natural elements at your disposal, along with your own tools, you can grow this deity from nothing into an elder deity, but make sure to take care of it, as neglecting the deity will cause the land to reject it, banishing it from existence.

There is a default path from birth to death, but experimenting with how your deity grows can alter it's path and change it's form. Try to find all of the different deity types!

At the moment there is only "Alcove" mode, but after Alcove mode has been tweaked into an acceptable state I'll begin working on "Alcove Rancher" mode, which is another game entirely, where you take on a care taker of the deity in a physical form exploring the land, raising the deity hands on, and discovering unknown depths awaiting to interact with you and your deity.
