Impressive Ludum Dare entry Gods Will Be Watching is being expanded into a fully fledged commercial product, pending funding on Indiegogo.
I wrote about Gods Will Be Watching a couple of months back where I called the single-screen survival sim "one of the most expansive Ludum Dare entries ever." For an entry made in under 72 hours at a game jam, it was certainly impressive, leading one to wonder what Spanish developer Deconstructeam could do with more time and money.
The remake will expand the game's scope to include six scenarios, rather than the mini-game's one. "The remake won't be just about surviving on a hostile planet, but to overcome several difficult situations that will expand both the storyline and universe of sergeant Burden and his crew, and will offer new moral dilemmas in order to stay alive," read the developer's description. It noted that one such new predicament would be a hostage situation where you assume the role of a terrorist and need to manage everyone's resources and nerves, lest they overthrow you.
