This is designed to be a couch 2-4 player game where the player chooses a deity to faction with.
There will be 2 gameplay modes, controlling the priest or controlling the deity itself.
In these images, the gameplay mode is controlling the priest which needs to recruit as many followers to their religion as possible. The followers once converted to the players religion, offer prayer which accumulates as prayer power to your deity. The player who fills their quota first, wins the round!
It is also possible to sabotage the other player by stealing their followers in a number of ways, or even smiting their prayer shrine!
