The trailer above gives you a better idea of this game's overall vibe -- simple touch controls with colorful graphics and -- what looks like -- a bunch of would-be followers with circa 1980 mullets. If we can control the weather, why not let us play the role of holy hairstylist as well?
Godfinger will be free to download, with the option to progress through the game faster by purchasing Awe points using real-life cash. These points can then be used to buy more gold and power boosts, which -- for instance -- make your followers work faster.
This portable god simulation game will have a social component as well, working hand-in-hand with the Plus+ social networking system on iPhone, which means players will be able to help friends earn extra gold (and brag to them about their godly achievements).
Don't let the whole god thing go to your head, though. Godfinger keeps going whether you're logged in or not, so you'll have to check back often to make sure your worshipers aren't slacking on the job. Look for Godfinger in the App store "soon."
