From Press Release:
Gotland, Sweden — March 8, 2018 — Today, Swedish developer Eat Create Sleep announced that Crest, their imaginative new indirect god simulator, has been released. The game, which tasks players with the creation of civilization itself, is now available for download on Steam.
“Crest was primarily inspired by ancient Mesopotamia’s city-states,” says Martin Greip, Eat Create Sleep’s Creative/Art Director. “They had high priests who became kings and eventually started calling themselves gods. I thought this was a fascinating corruption of doctrine-human ambition sidelining compassion and faith. At its core, Crest is an examination of that.”
- Islands – Your followers are always looking for new adventures. Will they conquer new lands, or simply go fishing and return home?

- Animals – Humans aren’t the only residents of your world. Crest is populated with a wide variety of animal species, including everything from hyenas to hippos.
- Terraforming – Literally shape civilization by commanding followers to change their surroundings-but how will your commandments change them?
