Peter Molyneux’s Godus Seeks Funding on Kickstarter

Godus

Peter Molyneux and his development team 22cans are seeking funding for the new project Godus on Kickstarter.

The Kickstarter campaign is seeking £450,000. Thus far, the Kickstarter has gained £380,712 in pledges. The campaign comes to a close Dec. 21.

Godus is a return of sorts for Molyneux. It is a reinvention of Populous, the original god game. Players take on the role of a god, who must spread his influence throughout the world. Gods are only as powerful as their following. Godus is being developed for Mac, PC, iOS and Android devices.

Players will use their abilities to sculpt the land and create a habitable environment allowing the population of believers to flourish. Challenges that affect the population of the crafted utopia can help players grow their gods and their following. Hundreds of individual non-playable followers live out their lives in the environment with dynamic behavior that players can watch closely. Of course, new lands can be conquered but gamers will have to get past other gods and their followers first. The civilization is only big enough for one god. However, worshippers are prepared to go to battle for their god. Players can use their powers to alter the world around them and lead their followers to victory.

Godus is an innovative mix of a sandbox and strategy game. Decisions can be made by the players to live in peace and grow their civilization or defeat other gods by creating natural disasters and causing chaos. The game delivers global co-op, competition, creation and destruction with solo play, multiplayer, cross-platform gameplay, sandbox enivornment, strategic battles, living populations, and the power to create, change, and destroy the structure of the world.

Molyneux is somewhat of a god himself due to his work in the gaming industry. He is famous for his work on the Fable series. The social multiplayer game Curiosity – What’s Inside the Box? released last month. It is his first project with 22cans.

22cans released a gameplay trailer in a last ditch effort to fund the Godus Kickstarter. The video can be viewed below.
