Tastuya Shiraishi will be directing the adaptation. This is his directorial debut, as he previously worked as an episode director on Liden Films’ Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy and MADHOUSE’s Overlord II and as a key animator on numerous titles including Fire Force, JoJo`s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, and Kokoro Connect.

Kami wa Game ni Ueteiru is a light novel series written by Kei Sazane and illustrated by Toiro Tomose. It started off as a web novel published on the Kakuyomu website in 2020, before being picked up by Media Factory in January of 2021 under the MF Bunko J imprint. The author, Kei Sazane is best known for writing Our Last Crusade of the Rise of a New World series, which also received an anime adaptation.

Yen Press licensed the light novel in English. The first volume is set to release this November and plot is described as:
When the gods grow bored, they decide to spice up their eternal existence by challenging all takers in an ultimate battle of wits! Of course, these deities are capricious, unfair, and incomprehensible at the best of times, so winning is virtually impossible for a mere mortal. Even so, things are bound to get interesting when a former goddess and a genius human boy team up in a bid to win the game to end all games!
