Usually god games are about helping people, but this is an entirely different take on a familiar genre. Instead of helping the people to build a tower to the heavens, your goal is to stop those annoying mortals from constantly blithering to you as if they were on your level. Rain down your choice of plagues and stop them from reaching you for a satisfying and smite-filled victory.
