Telepath RPG: Servants of God has been released!

Happy Valentine’s Day! What can I say: I love you all so much, I decided to release a new game just for you.

Download Telepath RPG: Servants of God (use Adobe AIR to run the installer); then unlock the full game here.

“I am honestly surprised by the amount of dialogue in Telepath RPG, and at how well it is presented. Ideas are explored that most games ignore, such as how it feels to take someone’s life and how it is represented inside the mind.”
–Rick B., Indie Theory

“At heart, it’s a turn-based tactical RPG that feels like what a game of chess would be like if each piece had a big character sheet of RPG stats to take into consideration. Stern must have played a lot of Shining Force and Final Fantasy Tactics as a kid, as he knows how to exploit the mechanics of this kind of combat to demand strategic and thoughtful thinking from the player.”
–George Weidman, TruePCGaming

“It’s a solid SRPG with a compelling story that should win over traditional tabletop wargamers, as well as anyone who enjoyed Disgaea or Final Fantasy Tactics…. Small strategic details like flank attacks and ranged weapon usage are exactly right. The conflict that drives the game is worldly and political, but the main character’s quest is a personal one about family. There’s even an in-game explanation for why you’re able to see the position of every fighter on the battlefield, which is a detail that isn’t usually addressed in an SRPG of any type or setting. What’s most inspiring about the game is the novelty of the setting, which never seems to wear itself out.”
The Indie Mine


What’s all the buzz about? Buy the game and see for yourself.

    At last!! 😀 😀 😀

    I will lap up your offering excitedly in the weeks to come. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful masterpiece! I will look forward to your future projects with interest.

     Thank you very much for creating such an amazing game! However, I’m having trouble downloading the version that’s lets me play the entire game. I already pre-ordered it, and then I re-downloaded it from the link on this page, which deleted all my save files. It tells me that I have to buy the game(which I already did) to play the full version in the bottom-left corner of the main menu. The email that told me how to register the game got corrupted somehow. Please help, I want to enjoy the full version of this great game!

    Hey there Jeremy, just send me an email and let me know what email address you used when pre-ordering; I will have BMT Micro send you the activation code again.

  • Fool

    Oh no! It appears that this wonderful announcement has been soiled by technical difficulties. 🙁

    I already downloaded the pre-release build, and I’m having trouble installing this version over it. You’ve said in previous blog posts that all you have to do is tell Adobe AIR to overwrite the previous location, but that option never comes up for me. All the installer says is that it can’t install, because a directory with the same name already exists or something. Do you know the problem? Am I just using an outdated version of Adobe AIR?

    Ah–something must have changed in the AIR settings when I did this build. Not to worry; just back up your saved games and uninstall TSoG, then install the new version.

    …That worked! Thanks!

    Alright, I preordered way back when it was first available, and now I have a code and a game that doesn’t want it.  Clicking the ‘unlock full game’ thing sends me straight to where I can buy it AGAIN.  Where do I put this blasted code?

  • Kaleb232771

    I don’t get it, when I install the package with Adobe Air it says that the file has been damaged. Can you tell me what happened? Please?

     Follow the instructions you got when you ordered the game. If you need them resent to you, send me an email with the email address you used to order the game and I’ll have BMT Micro resend it.

    I wish i had money 🙁

  • Kaleb232771

    I’m trying this on a different computer, so what would i do?

  • Kaleb232771

    Okay, it says that I should get a new installer package, what is the installer package?

  • Jack

    I cannot figure out where to put the code. It just says the code, not where to put it. Help please.

  • CraigStern

    Read the instructions you downloaded after you purchased the game: they tell you what to do to enter the code.

  • CraigStern

    I’m guessing that your download didn’t complete, or that the file was corrupted. I’d try downloading the installer again; it should be 122 MB in size when it completes.

    If you still have problems after that, send me an email and I’ll try to walk you through it.

  • Jack

    Um. Wow. That’s pretty darn clever. Seriously, nice protection.

  • Fengar

    I downloaded the game, but when I try to install it it gets through the installation bar then it says:

    Sorry, an error has occurred.
    The application could not be installed. Try installing it again. If the problem persists, contact the application author.

    Any idea why it’s not working?

  • CraigStern

    Did you have a previous version of the game installed? If so, back up your saved games (here’s how: http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=357.0 ) and uninstall TSoG, then install the new version.

    If that doesn’t do it, make sure the installer downloaded fully (it’s just shy of 140 MB).

  • Dan

    Craig, you should contact pr[at]cynicalbrit.com TotalBiscuit might do a video on your game and raise awareness so all can enjoy this great game.

  • CraigStern

    Oh, believe me, I have. I’d love for him to do a WTF of the game, but I haven’t gotten a reply yet.

  • Fengar

     I didn’t have a previous version and I got the full 134 mb download.  I tried redownloading it and I still get the same error.

    I’m sure it’s good, but I didn’t get the demo to work. On a Mac: Downloaded the .zip, opened it, got a .cpgz file. Opened it, got another .zip. Back and forth endlessly. Adobe Air didn’t seem to recognize any of the two files.

  • CraigStern

    Ah–the installer isn’t a .zip file, it’s an .air file. If it’s downloading as a .zip, try renaming the file extension to .air, then running it.

  • Boemac9

    hey craigstern i need help i downloaded the game but i found out that it was the demo so please help me
