Magiko Games are no stranger to our Xbox Live Indie features. Or our trophies, for that matter. Their Platformance series has proudly topped two of our Game Of The Week roundups... and once again, the boutique developer has crafted a standout platformer that provides slick mechanics and incredible value for a negligable price point.
Who Is God, in its own small way, is designed to answer the age-old question about who should be considered the one true deity. To do so, players will compete for the highest online leaderboard scores by assuming the identity of one of four major Gods: Ganesha, Buddha, Xenu and, well, God. Obviously. You'll need to bounce your extradimensional entity up an infinitely sprawling vertical level that throngs with unstable platforms, hazards and all manner of unpredictable and indescribable shenanigans. Your opponent's' highest attempts are noted on the side of the screen, with the objective being to beat them all and reaching the coveted top spot on the scoreboard. The drive to become the true God will become an overwhelming compulsion that's difficult to resist.Click here to continue reading this week's Indie roundup!
Who Is God?
It's an age-old question that has puzzled theologians for milennia... and veteran Xbox Live Indie studio Magicko Games seem to have the answer in their upcoming platformer. Taking control of one of the major Gods (including Buddha, Ganesha and Xenu, as far as we can make out), players will jump as far as possible up the procedurally-generated stages in order to secure the biggest online leaderboard scores - the best of whom is naturally deified.
We've got more details and a trailer below.
