A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Desperate Gods is a free online board game that was designed to be played just like a board game in real-life: no rules are enforced by the computer, and all moves are performed in a shared physical space. The game itself is a cross between Monopoly and Diablo, a dark fantasy dungeon crawl for up to four players.

The source code is available on GitHub.

The Soundtrack is available on Bandcamp.

Code by David Rosen, art by Aubrey Serr, and music by Anton Riehl

Even solo this was a lot of fun. The physics system was novel, and I believe predates Tabletop Simulator. And the source code is open source??? That's amazing. Looking forward to trying this out with friends!
