Idle Worship brings a fully synchronous gaming experience to Facebook, allowing you to connect with your friends and other Facebook users in real-time. The objective in Idle Games' debut release is 'to build the largest religion and vie for the worship of friends, strangers and the rather dim indigenous population called Mudlings.' Contrary to nearly every other game on Facebook, Idle Games have opted not to include the friends bar which lets you spam messages send requests to your Facebook friends based on in-game needs. Idle Worship lets you play with anyone, regardless of whether or not your friends with them or even know them personally.
With the power of a god at your fingertips, it's up to you if you treat your subjects with kindness and bunnies or set their heads on fire rather maliciously. Idle Worship doesn't use shards to separate game worlds, but rather offers one congruous world so that 'no matter what server you are on, you can still play in real-time with everyone.' Along with the powers of a god come a host of decisions that you'll have to be prepared to make if you want to see your subjects live a happy, productive life. Or you can give them cholera.
“The genre of god games taps into today’s fascination with questions like how many Facebook friends you have, or the number of Twitter followers you’ve amassed,” said Jeffrey Hyman, CEO and co-founder, Idle Games. “But most importantly, Idle Worship realizes the true promise of social games… to create connections and play between friends and strangers alike. We’ve worked incredibly hard to innovate in art, story and the underlying technology to bring players a social game like no other.”
