In a stagnating technocratic society of a seemingly perfect futuristic world, a cult is born. A strong leader emerges from the crowds and steps in to rid the world of the misery that clenches society. He brings answers – food for people’s minds – and comfort for their souls. All those seeking higher meaning within the world are accepted. They find their place within a community that deals with the void they’ve until recently had to fill with drugs and alcohol. But as Elion, their leader and prophet, increases his influence and power, he loses touch with reality and the ideal of salvation is gradually turned against those who don’t feel the need for his guidance – the infidels.
In Re-Legion, players follow Elion’s journey from a lone prophet to the most powerful advocate of religion in the city. Introducing a new alternative to the usual economic and resource management used in RTS games, Re-Legion allows players to convert ordinary non-believing citizens into their units – the followers. Initiated cultists then expand the group’s possibilities by obtaining cyber-coins to enable upgrades. By praying they increase faith in order to gain and use special abilities. They can also hack buildings and ad-boards to expand and control territories and convert other citizens or fight enemy units and non-believers.
The overall direction of the cult is defined by the dogmas chosen for it. From a peaceful religion to one that despises non-believers, each one of dozens of dogmas defines the way in which the cult will pursue its goals. But whichever path you choose, your followers will all work together to build a strong and powerful cult...
…they are the legion of their own religion.
