  • Mudlings: Mudlings are the populace of your island. Create mudlings by using your powers or allow mudlings to have baby mudlings.

  • Followers: Mudlings who have faith in you become followers of your religion. Have mudlings pray at altars and use your powers on them to increase their faith.

Idle Worship

  • Prayers: Prayers are essentially quests that you can complete to earn bonuses such as coins and experience.

Idle Worship

  • Powers: Powers can be used to bless or curse your followers, increasing or decreasing their faith.

  • Influence: Influence makes your powers stronger. You can make your influence stronger by building influence buildings.

  • Experience: Experience is earned by completing prayers. Once you’ve earned enough experience you will level up and unlock new buildings and powers for your islands.

  • Energy: You will need energy to use your powers. Each power uses a different amount of energy. Once you’ve run out of energy you will either need to wait for it to replenish or you can purchase energy using tokens. You can also earn energy by directing your followers to pray at an altar.

  • Fish: You must have fish to feed your mudlings. If your mudlings are hungry they will refuse to work. Luckily, your mudlings know how to fish, and if you run out of fish there are powers that you can use to feed your followers.

  • Wood: Wood is used for building new structures on your island. You can direct your mudlings to chop down trees. They will automatically stop when the trees are small. If you direct them to continue chopping the tree it will be reduced to a stump and tree will be dead (it can, however, be resurrected using one of your powers).

  • Stone: Stone is used for building and upgrading Moai.

  • Island View: Going to island view allows you to visit other islands in your region. You can visit islands and convert mudlings there. You can also use your powers on other players, either for good or evil.
