I didn't like it. :( 

The concept is nice, but there's only a few cultists and you can't choose which cultists open which apps, so you end up needing to close the game just to do anything. It also covers my desktop wallpapers.

The background should be transparent...

cute game! well worth the $1 price

Why it looks soo cool but don't work ;) game is not prepared for more than one screen. More than that game makes you build a shrine using apps on desktop but it covers a desktop.




i have 3 monitors, and when i open this, the Unity widow is MASSIVE. and then full screens the massive window, leaving what i assume is the top left of the 'game' visible, but hiding the top right, and the whole bottom. I just see Sky. would love to actually use something i bought... what a shame...

yeah, it's a shame. Same here, there is no possibility to play it. U can use alt+enter and at least you can see shrine but still i'm very disappointed.

double monitors confuse it but i like it


only if it was free :(

Hello, I'm trying to add shortcuts for my cultists. Also, one seems to be stuck in the shrine and it resets to 0 every start up.


Oh well, I thought it was free :(

The window resolution is not right for y desktop, is there an option to change the size?

Hello Ailuron, it's not available in the current version. Can you tell me your resolution ? I can work on an update to handle it.

How do i add shortcuts to it, will it take awhile for it to add the shortcuts to it?

Hello, you can create your own shortcut in windows. I search if I can add an option to activate the wallpaper on start of the computer.

But if you want, you can launch the game when windows starts, this way: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-launch-apps-automatically-during-startup-wind...
