Derpy God

Derpy God is a 2D side-scrolling real-time strategy game, with chaotic physics-driven battles, set in a fantasy world of gods and mortals. Gather resources, build defenses and send forth your armies in campaign mode, or get creative and craft crazy scenarios in the sandbox.

Select from a vast array of unit types, each with their own weapon, strengths, and weaknesses. Savage barbarians, noble knights, elven archers and more are at your command.

Arrange your troops into strategic formations to counter enemy attack waves. Protect your shrine to ensure your divine power does not falter, and destroy the enemy’s shrine to claim victory!

Derpy God is built on multiple overlapping simulation systems including physics, fire, water and necromancy, so not even we can predict what will happen in a battle! This is fine!

No battle can be won without the aid of your lumberjacks, blacksmiths and dwarven miners. Put them to work gathering the resources you need to build new units. Protect them at all costs, and spend those resources wisely!

Follow the story of River, rebellious slacker god of the village domain, on his journey through the realms in pursuit of Obsidius, evil overlord of the volcanic wastelands.

Become a true god of chaos and play with the infinite possibilities of sandbox mode! Every unit type, contraption, enemy, beast, weapon and building block is unlocked and at your fingertips! Want to give that dinosaur a shotgun? Go for it! Those tiny arms can handle it!


Take control of a team of mercenaries, doing the dirty work of the shady factions who vie for control of a once-great, now crumbling industrial city.

In the single-player campaign you will assemble a team and deploy them on missions to infiltrate, spy, sabotage, steal, and eliminate their targets. Juggle your reputation with the powerful factions who rule over the city, and learn what makes the gears of society turn as you uncover their deepest secrets.

In online bultiplayer you can challenge your friends in competitive team-vs-team battles, take part in tournaments, or attempt to climb the online leaderboards in ranked matches.

The core gameplay is a twist on a classic turn-based, JRPG-style battle system. In Steamhounds, characters do not simply execute an attack or skill and then wait quietly until their next turn. Instead, they make their move and then choose one of several “stances” to adopt until their next turn. Stances allow characters to react to certain events, setting up powerful combos and chain reactions with their teammates – resulting in a highly dynamic battle system with countless emergent strategies and synergies.
