Fun game. I enjoyed it. 


Thanks, was fun! And this one boi got carried over, immediate loss lmao.


If I click on the wrong temple, I can't select anything else until I die.


Tried to make it look decent lol. I immediately lost after screenshotting XD.

I was able to place down an endgame building while having it selected and clicking retry, immediately plummeting me to negative 297 cultists and losing the game




Idle? "Intense" is the word you're looking for. But jokes aside, it was pretty fun. Won on my 3rd try. It starts off kinda slow but it seems to get more and more intense. Could use a pause button. And it got me thinking there could be additional playmodes. One that is purely idle just for relaxation. So none of that "every cultists dies quickly". They'd just have to wait. One that is more on the strategy side. So the cultists don't die. But also, e.g. the area could be more limited and you couldn't just break down the buildings.

I click play again, apparently if you fast enough you can place temple from previous play.

I wish there was a game mode where you could do infinite

it is a very very good game tho


I like it very much, thanks for the game


Not idle since you die in 3 seconds if you stop clicking.  The buildings could show size before you buy them for planning, I thought the 300 one would be 2x2

Also what's the point of the 100 3x2 building  when there is a 2x2 building for 65 with the same benefit?

Maybe just remove the dying from overpopulation, just make the cultists die.

11*20*10/4 =550  that's why the 300 can't be 2*2

Great game!! That was fun.

"IDLE" 2 seconds into playing the game "ok so i need to click for some guys, oh wait i have too many i need buldings, click, place, click, place, click, place, click place(like 10 mins later) huh thats it, wheres the idle? or Incremental?


Idle? More like frantic clicker :) Keyboard shortcuts for the buildings would have made this a lot less painful for the wrist. Nice though


you should add a pause button!

What is the benefit of the wide temple (the 5th building)? It seems to do the same as the previous building, except it's bigger.

I'm not even gonna ask how

Ill do it for you. 960 room? 710 cultists? 4512 clicks on idol!?

awesome game i completed it in 39 mins

It'd like it if you could change the building you were going to place if you accidentally clicked the wrong one, or otherwise change your mind about which structure you're going to place. I lost because I grabbed a large building that I didn't have the space for. I was so close to being able to afford the 300 building.


If I remember correctly, right clicking cancel the actual build.

Great clicker/incremental with a twist :D

10 clicks only, required to start. Took about 1 h 30 m.

I spent good time playing that game, thank you very much :)

yay! as you can see in the background, i was very focused on making it look aesthetically pleasing (lol). this was fun. a bit tedious, but all clicker games are like that. you either enjoy them or you don't. i wish there was an option to turn off/down the particles, but overall, it was fun!

i did it at school

Great game!! clicker with a twist.... start peacefully and at the ends up frantic.

I want that on my phone :)

Very nice game! I really liked the art style and the music reminded me of this game I played on nintendo DS when I was younger, called ninjatown :D The game itself was so much fun to play and it did get pretty difficult towards the end, the whole pace of the game just changed. Overall a very fun and enjoyable game :)

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

That was fun.

Loved the concept. Beautiful "time waster" 


I would love if there were hotkeys for the buildings. It would make it easier than going down to click it every time!

realllllyyy nice ,thanks a lot, it made my hour :-)

A little short, but nice! Like the art and the idea is fun.


I was trying to fill my screen with blue houses, didn't expect there would be an end to this.

Me too honestly I wish there was a mode to slow down time so you could.

I killed my fingers.

good concept but now my fingers are dead 

rip fingers

Art so simple.. i like it... 

will be interesed if idol can be random with others random places (artic, desert, etc.)

Love it!

Nice game, I liked the concept :D

Nice :)

Get concept from Forager?
