God Mode is a co-op, arena-based, third-person shooter video game focusing on survival mode style gameplay. It was developed by Saber Interactive in conjunction with Old School Games and published by Atlus. The game uses Saber Interactive internal game engine, Saber 3D, v.S4.

The gameplay was later used as basis for R.I.P.D. The Game.

Plot[edit]

Playing as the descendant of an ancient-God-turned-mere-mortal by Hades, the player and up to three co-op mode friends (online or offline/LAN) must blast their way through the Maze of Hades and its demonic denizens using an arsenal of firearm weaponry and deity inspired magical 'special attacks' in order to avoid eternal damnation.
