Godlike: Superhero Roleplaying in a World on Fire, 1936-1946 is an alternate-history World War II era Superhero role-playing game, created by Dennis Detwiller and with game mechanics by Greg Stolze. Godlike was originally produced by Dennis Detwiller and John Tynes of Pagan Publishing (though it was not actually a Pagan publication), and published by Hawthorn Hobgoblynn Press. It is currently published by Arc Dream Publishing. Godlike is the first game released using the One-Roll Engine (O.R.E.) gaming system, an innovative dice pool system where matched die results determine success.

Godlike is set in an alternate history version of World War II where people known as Talents have developed unexplained powers. Godlike is a gritty Superhero roleplaying game, where wearing spandex and other flashy outfits is a sure way to draw a sniper's bullet that most Talents would not survive. The Godlike core book contains a detailed section reviewing key events of World War II with special attention paid to events that differed due to the Talents involved in the war.
