Indie developer Deconstructeam is seeking funds via IndieGoGo for Gods Will Be Watching, a point-and-click game that began as a Ludum Dare entry.

Gods Will Be Watching was created for Ludum Dare 26 as part of the game jam's "Minimalism" theme. With the help of crowdfunding, the developer hopes to remake the game bigger and better.

"The remake won't be just about surviving on a hostile planet," the campaign's page reads, "but to overcome several difficult situations that will expand both the storyline and universe of sergeant Burden and his crew, and will offer new moral dilemmas in order to stay alive."

Unlike the original game, which focused mainly on survival, players will need to manage resources and solve puzzles; scenarios will also incorporate player choice. According to the funding page, the developer hopes to improve the game's AI, add new cinematics and more.

Funding efforts end Aug. 15. The developer is asking for €8,000, with backer tiers ranging from 8 to 2,000. Rewards include items such as a digital copy of the game, an extended soundtrack and artbook.

Check out the trailer above for a look at Gods Will Be Watching's premise and gameplay. If funded, the game will be available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux and mobile devices.
