GOD (aka Growth or Devolution) is a role playing game by Imagineer. The game starts in 1999 and tells the story of Gen, a young boy who goes biking to the nearby mountains. After being bullied by a group of boys, he finally reaches the top of the mountain. There he discovers a cave and a strange device - but soon weird flying saucers fill up the sky and annihilate the city in front of his very eyes. A tremendous flash of light cuts across the sky and Gen collapses, unconscious. He then wakes up ten years later, in 2009, in a military base near his destroyed hometown. The outside world has dramatically changed and Gen will travel throughout the world and uncover the secret of the alien invasion. New friends will help him on the journey, the first one is the old swordmaster Bajile who is soon followed by Bajile, Mina and Ai. GOD follows a traditional role-playing recipe based around exploration and turn-based combat. Enemy encounters are menu-driven and feature a 'behind-the-character' view of the action. Our heroes can use their main weapons, activate items, cast magic spells and, later in the game, even use special psychic abilities.
