This was very fun!
The Sacred Text
One god. One message. One faith. Right?
A story generator that explores the evolution and coalescing of a faith. You play a god trying to corral their disparate followers, but you only get one act to convince them of the right path. Choose carefully!
Instructions: Choose a god name, theme, origin, and 4 concepts at the start (you can toggle and untoggle them to get more information). In the main game screen, click the "advance time" button to go forward and see what your followers get up to!

Thank you for making this game! It was entertaining and also quite inspiring in terms of worldbuilding c:
Thanks! Glad you were inspired by it – please get it touch if you make anything inspired by it, we’d love to see it!
Well, this is rather well put together and rather entertaining to boot. I'd love to see an update of this adding more content of sorts to mess around with. Good work.
Thank you! Glad you liked it.
Naturally, I'm a sucker for stuff with emergent...complexity? So to speak? Different from a lot of other procedual stuff which feels bland, this here feels...like it has something to it. Charm, a lot of charm.
I love this game.
i love the idea! it's a neat little thing to mess around with, and i had a great time reading what the assembled sacred text was at the end. the writing style suit the aesthetic of the game quite a lot!
Love the idea, hope to have more content, and ability to advance time much longer and find more ways to interact with your followers. Its pretty neat now though
I really hope you stick with this and update and add more content, like more opportunities to make divine acts and whatnot. I really enjoyed it, and it's a great concept, it just felt a little quick and empty. Overall it was a fantastic game and I really enjoyed it
Thanks to you the Sisters of Strife spread the teachings of the Thunderous Tremor of the Underworld, celebrating long life and prosperity every Summer Solstice with rituals of debauchery <3
11/10 would create a religion again :D
What a good ending ,the earth become a paradise and my name is gonna be praised forever, but... the thing is, that you made a good game and I had a good experience playing this game ...Thank you for this great message and I hope you will make some more of this type of games, you have a lot of potential...have a good day!
"Houses were built to help the poor, and the faithful offered their service and alms so that this earth might become a paradise. This practice is continued as the Houses of Aid.
Through the words of the prophet and the holy writings handed down over a thousand generations, the true message of ...... has come to us so that we might keep it in our hearts and pass it on to our children.
By the grace of the great one, we were given a chance to return to the fold of piety, casting aside our old wicked ways. Truly we have been blessed by....., the triumphant Conquerer of the faithful, ruler over the Sky. May their name be praised forever."
Really cool experience. Not sure if I got a good ending: my starting clan was the only one that survived, staying at about the same size, everyone else died of the plague. Kneel before me.
I had no idea what I was doing but I had a fun time! Thumbs up!
"For Pleb Man was greatly pleased by the human sacrifices."
