Playing a game can be a heck of a lot of hassle at times. So why not avoid the effort by playing a Zero-Player Game. Yes, it's possible to play a game without playing a game. Godville is such a title.
All players must do is simply create their own hero then sit back and watch their avatar fight monsters, collect loot, earn gold and more. The player simply needs to watch and check in from time to time to see how things have progressed.
It's an interesting concept - Godville promises to offer a helpful dose of humor in the form of MMO parodies and general mocking of level grinding experiences. Godville's developers also promise that the game will evolve based upon ideas and suggestions made by the game's community which could well promise some great innovations.
Godville is a free and universal app that offers in-app purchases but these are far from essential if the player so wishes, making for an ideal experience to give a try.
It's out now. Check out the gameplay video below.
