"Exile of the Gods" Major Update!

Exile of the Gods has a new update today with 40,000 words of extra content! Both Exile of the Gods and Champion of the Gods are on sale until September 17th!

In the great war between the gods, will you wield the chains of destiny, or shatter them forever?

Exile of the Gods is a 500,000 word interactive epic fantasy novel by Jonathan Valuckas, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Our story begins twenty years after the action of the first game, 2015’s Champion of the Gods. Which ending did you get? Start this game as the Champion, a warrior born to serve the gods, and follow the holy destiny the Weavers have crafted for you. Or start this game as the Exile, enemy of the gods, and forge a new life for yourself in the faraway land of Khovros–where mortals are free to choose their own fates.

Champion and Exile alike must unravel a deadly conspiracy, and confront the brewing war upon their gods. Will you vanquish this invading force, or use its power to free your realm from its ruthless creators forever? Take revenge on the gods who exiled you, or steal this chance to prove your worth to the pantheon, and seize your destiny of glory?

The gods made you what you are. Now, you will show them what you are made of.

What platform are you referring to?

Can you send a screenshot?

Oh devils…

Glad for a reason to replay this; its one of my favorite series. Can we get any info on what has changed/been updated?


The author commented here: Exile of the Gods -- Wield the chains of destiny, or shatter them?

If you want to hone in on the biggest updates you will want to betray the gods without joining forces with the God of War or the God of Chaos. The ending for players who betrayed the gods outright was rather sudden in the previous version, now it is…definitely not sudden, LOL! Goes in many directions, depending on how you decide to play it.


Did the game only go on sale for steam? It’s a dollar more to buy on google vs steam and I can’t see any notes whether it’s on sale until tomorrow. (Not sure if it didn’t go on sale for that platform or if google just has a really crappy currency conversion.)
