The PC, Mac and Linux game from indie developer Deconstructeam tells the story of a research team that has to face a strange world with ethical problems and other challenges.

The game combines elements such as “despair, commitment and sacrifice with intelligent puzzles” in which the decisions made by the players have a direct influence on the mood and the state of the crew.

Here’s a list of numbers critics are handing out. As usual, all scores are based on 10 being the highest unless indicated:

The review embargo just lifted, so we expect more to surface later in the day.

Gods Will BE Watching is out on Steam today.

    @Darkfield
    Yeah. This game seriously tries to break you and your mind. So cruel and yet so amazing.

    It’s a psychological test that uses perception, endurance and management skills. Those psychological aspects are something else and beyond most games of this ilk. To me, “Gods will be Watching” is one of the most groundbreaking and important titles in recent memory.

    (How I wish VG247 would overhype something as unique and important as this rather than the $500 million dollar mega franchise, sci-fi shooter from Activision)
