About this project

New Gods of Raanon is an ambitious 2D flash game created for use on Facebook and other gaming websites. The premise is simple enough; you are a New God with a tribe of followers who live in the land of Raanon. The game mechanics are similar to other harvest clicking games and combat games on Facebook. The difference lies in the quality of our staff and our unique take on bronze-age fantasy. Our final vision for this game is very large! We plan to make it one of the best games on the Facebook platform.  

Dark Skull Studios plans to release New Gods of Raanon on several platforms. Currently we will launch our product on Facebook. Our plans are to move onto Kongregate and other websites. iOS and Android are two mobile platforms we are looking at to run our game. As we launch our game on other platforms we want to ensure it will be Free to Play and micro-transactions can and will happen with ease. 


NGoR (New Gods of Raanon) is based on our table-top RPG game New Gods of Mankind. We created 6 PDFs so far and we have some of the titles in print. It is a vast universe with lots of potential for role-play and player interaction. Here is an excerpt from the back cover of the first book. 

Live the Legend. 

In the Celestial Spheres above the Known World you live among the immortals—a New God of Mankind worshipped by your followers. Here you may create your own heaven or hell, a place of solace or perhaps a kingdom of pain. From your heavenly abode, you may descend to the Known World or visit the unearthly Spirit Realm in the blink of an eye. Your power is only limited by your worshipers and the Belief you hold.  

Become the Myth. 

Assume the roles of ancient warriors or magicians, spirits or even demons that have gathered followers to your cause, ascending to the Celestial Gardens and to godhood. Your very being personifies major and minor aspects of the world and mortal life: War, Death, Birth, or the Sun itself is yours to become. Create miracles, command your followers, and smite your enemies at your whim.  

Be a God. 

Mankind is a struggling race in its infancy, limited by primitive technology and hindered by many rivals including terrible Leviathans, the Elder Races and their gods who are jealous of sharing their power, as well as the gods of rival tribes. Humanity looks to you for protection from this hostile world. It is your task as a New God of Mankind to guide your people to a new way of life and a better afterlife.

“We create games to ignite your imagination” is our motto. We plan to live up to that model by giving you the customer the best experience possible with the gaming platform we are using. 


Our programmers come from the New Mexico area with many years’ experience programming for Uncle Sam.
