When the world is threatened by three gargantuan World Eaters and you’re given the task of destroying them, the last thing you’d want co-inhabiting your body is the being who summoned the monsters in the first place. But that’s exactly the premise behind the strategy RPG Soul Nomad & the World Eaters. You absorb the soul of Gig, the God of Destruction - who, by the way, still very much wants to see the world in ruins - because it’s only by tapping into his power that you even have a chance at defeating the World Eaters. Of course, every time you use any of his abilities (called “Gig Edicts”), you’ll be feeding him a little of your soul, too. Life's tough that way.
