"Animal Gods is kind of interesting in where its story lies. Players assume the role of Thistle, during the Bronze Age, and are sent to set the now fallen animal gods free from the industrial era that is unfolding. The story of Animal Gods is arguably the most important part of the game. While there are certainly other factors that are essential, the plot is what everything funnels into. Without giving too many spoilers, I can simply say that there is a very clear message that the game gives off, and sometimes it seems like that is the only intention of the game."
