You’re no longer restricted to controlling a single island in early access god game Crest [official site]: the latest update means your followers can sail off to explore the world around them. If you didn’t know, Crest is a religion simulator in which you can only interact with your subjects by issuing vague commandments in the “if [subject] then [verb] [object]” form. They’re supposed to be ambiguous, and it’s unlikely your people will do want you want them to do. Most likely, they’ll die of starvation, but hey-ho, you can just fire up another procedurally-generated world and start again.
The update, which adds an ‘Exploration Module’, is full of stuff. As well as getting in boats and heading for new shores, your followers can terraform land. Island variety is up (there’s now beaches, cliffs and harbours), and there’s new commandments to try out. Oh, and you’ll now spot hippos in the water, which is surely the biggest addition. Read the full list (which is somewhat vague itself) here.
