A downloadable Early Prototype for Windows and macOS

Incarnation is a mouse-only roguelite with reverse progression. 

Experience a divine entity's descent from the heavens through a series of procedurally generated levels. After each level, you must lose one of your celestial powers until you are completely transformed into a human.

Will you be able to reach mortality?

The game currently only supports 1920x1080 resolution.



Mouse: move and attack


The game was created as the final project of my Visual Communication bachelor's degree in Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.

Hey since it has windows and mac support can you add linux support too? It would be nice to have games that support linux natively

i agree

What a fun idea! I really liked the concept, the art is great and the music sets the ominous mood. I just found strange that the dash has no sound effect, at least at the beginning in god mode, apart from that really great!

Really cool game! Love the concept. Going from OP to really weak is a neat idea. Playing with the mouse is novel but it also adds difficulty. The visuals look really good, I like the art style and the colors you chose. The music fits the mood. Great work! Hope you got a good grade on the final haha  :D

This is a pretty amazing game! The graphics are great, the color schemes are well chosen and the art is just really nice to look at. I love what you did with the mouse light/orb! The tutorial is neat, I quickly got everything and it didn't disrupt the flow of the game itself. The whole concept is really nice too! It made the gameplay really interesting to see this type of thing reversed, and everything getting more difficult not because the enemies grow stronger but because the player grows weaker. Short but sweet, definitely worth a play!

Wow! Holy crap. Love the theme, hooked me with it's inversion of the power fantasy. Supported by great music that also strips down and becomes more primal as you go through the game.

Mechanics take some getting used to, at first you feel super fast and it's easy to get ahead of yourself, which is funny seeing as you start off in what is essentially god mode..

Game runs great in it's current state, polished to a certain point. I did run into a pit in a later level where I couldn't get out without the power of flight, but that's random level generation for you (a very typical mortal woe, to get yourself stuck in a ditch or a cavern, left to die..)

10/10 would back in kickstarter
