Update 0.15.4 The "Create Your Own Religion" Milestone Update (24 October 2019)

New System: Religious Development

Inspire your Worshippers to develop your religion by guiding them through Religious Developments in different 'Religion Trees'!
New System: Religious Tenets

Religious Tenets allow you to further define your religion in addition to Commandments. Each offers a unique Religion Tree, smaller than those of a Commandment, with it's own special benefits, buildings and religious choices!

New System: Crystal Skulls & World Map Challenge

Godhood will challenge you in a new way as you progress across the World Map! For each Sacrament, your Religion must ritually sacrifice a single crystal skull. They are a rare and limited resource. If your Religion ever runs out, they have to win the Sacrament!

New Sacrament Rules: More Tactics!

New rules serve the make the Sacrament more fair, interesting and give you more control over the Sacrament's outcome!

And lots, lots more!

Expanded Recruitment Mechanics: Recruiting new Disciples has been radically expanded!

- New Buildings: Several Religious Developments will unlock special buildings.
- New Relics: Several Religious Developments grants special Relics.
- Economy Overhaul: We've streamlined the ways resources are spent and rebalanced the whole economy, all so you have many more meaningful choices as you expand your religion!
- Expanded and Overhauled World Map: Lots of new encounters now populate the expanded World Map!

Changelog for Update 0.16.2: Newfound Shores (28 February 2020):

- Islands: Go to differently themed island to convert the unenlightened. Each island has different challenges and rewards. Collect the sunstones to become the one Truth!
- Generosity: A new commandment for you to spread!
- Human Sacrifice: A new tenet to play with!

- Time & Turns: Pressure is removed from the game to make place for God Actions. You will now have a fixed (upgradeable) number of actions between Missions. Rituals either complete immediately or take a Mission to complete.
- Dreams: Appear in the dreams of your Disciples to prepare them for coming challenges!
- Rituals: You can now permanently improve your disciples with Rituals. They're not as effective as Miracles though.
- City Management: There is now one, central, convenient place to build structures, upgrade them, or unlock classes.
- Classes: Every commandment starts with 4 unlocked classes. You can unlock more with Materials.
- Developments & Followers: Followers unlock some buildings, and will be important for the end game and your high score. Developments slowly unlock as you complete Missions or when you collect Development Sparks.
- Crystal Skulls: You have much more Crystal Skulls, and more chances to upgrade and replenish them. The more crystal skulls you have when you complete a mission, the more rewards you can choose from!
- Sacrament Conversion: Instead of depleting an Awe bar, there are now two other ways of victory:
--> converting half or more of the crowd with your glory.
--> breaking all opponents. Violence works best here.
- When a Disciple is broken, that faction loses 30% of it's converts in the Sacrament.
- Broken: A broken character loses a bond. Once a characters loses all 3 bonds, they leave your religion.
- Ability Styles: Abilities now have a style of conversion, like Fear or Grace. Disciples have a preferred conversion style, and are more likely to learn these abilities. Some passives already work with it, but it will become more important in the future...
- Offerings: You can spend offerings to improve the effect of your actions!

- Tutorial: Game comes with an improved tutorial.
- Development Trees: Development trees are more balanced, and have more options.
- Big Miracles: The commandment miracles have special effects.
- Music: Some new music has been added.
- Adoption: Converting a whole island will give you the chance to adopt one of their tenets.
- Upgrades: There are many, many more and better upgrades. e.g. upgrade the amount of XP you get from a Sacrament, or what kind of dreams you can give to your Disciples.
- Many More: Many more smaller changes!

- So much that I don't know where to begin. The Mac/blocked text bug is still there though, unfortunately
