Crest, a god game which gives you the role as a guide for your people. Your only way of communication with your subjects is commandments you write for them. How these commandments are interpreted and remembered are not set in stone. You might find that your people will evolve over time and use your commandments for their own devices.

A god game where emphasis should be put on parenthood rather than omnipotent dictatorship. The player will not be told what is right or wrong, there will just be many paths which to choose from. Paths that lead to another history for your people and more ways of expressing yourself through your people and the world they shape. At the end of the day you might have changed yourself as well, at least in the eyes of your people.


  • Creative and easy input with varied consequences.
  • Indirect control.
  • Procedurally generated content.

  • "Your followers need to build, harvest, eat, reproduce, die, and all that god game stuff, directed by Your intervention."
    - Alice O'Connor, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
  • "[...]the possibility for an interesting AI-driven look at morality, sociology, and human interaction is there."
    - Bob Reinhard, Artistry in Games
  • "Many of my friends enjoy playing The Sims like they’re watching an ant colony: Hardly interfering, merely observing. I, as a video game control freak, prefer to engineer their life. Eat Create Sleep is creating something that’s in between those playstyles."
    - Luke Siuty, Indie Game Magazine
  • "I can’t really think of a game that mirrors this style of play quite in the same way. It has the potentiality to become something pretty big, especially depending on how far through civilization Crest will allow your people/tribe/world to evolve."
    - William Usher, One Angry Gamer
