ⓘ Godus

Godus is a video game in the god game genre, developed by the independent company 22Cans and published by DeNA. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and met their funding goal of GB£450.000 on 20 December 2012. Godus was designed by Peter Molyneux, who described it as the spiritual successor to his earlier creation, Populous. While the mobile versions of the game continue to be updated, the early access Steam release has yet to see an updated beta since December 2014. The contract of the lead developer of the game, Konrad Naszynski, expired 28 June 2016, and it has been reported that there is no one left working on the PC version.

                                     

1. Gameplay

The player starts out by saving a man and a woman from drowning. Once the player leads them to the "Promised Land", they will settle down and build a tent. They will "Breed" a worker, who will build another tent to live in. By using this strategy, the player will explore the world and improve the population through the ages. The main feature of this game is that the player is able to redesign the land levels at will. Different levels need more "Belief" than usual. The player will be able to explore at least one other world after finding a certain ship and gathering enough resources to repair it. You will need to build more housing dwellings, and as you do, the population that "worships" you will be increased. As the population grows, you will be rewarded with cards that will give you access to more "powers" and grant new abilities and behaviors to your followers as well.

                                     

2. Development

Godus was the efforts of game designer Peter Molyneux and his development studio 22Cans. The game is the spiritual successor to Molyneuxs earlier creation, Populous, and is inspired by his other titles: Dungeon Keeper and Black & White. Molyneux left his position at Microsoft in March 2012 to found 22Cans. With a staff of 20 people, the studio released its first game, Curiosity – Whats Inside the Cube?, on 6 November 2012, and began working on Godus.

The company launched a Kickstarter campaign to help crowdfund the costs of producing the game, and the campaign met its funding goal of GB£450.000 US$732.510 on 20 December 2012. Although the game was only funded two days before the campaign ended, any remaining pledges would be put towards stretch goals which would add features to the game such as more single-player modes, a cooperative mode, and adding support for Linux and the Ouya platform. 22Cans planned to release a prototype of the game on 13 December 2012, in an effort to attract more backers to the campaign. At the close of the campaign, GB£526.563 was raised and five out of the six stretch goals were reached, failing to achieve the goal for Ouya support. As of 21 December 2012, Molyneux had not set a release date for the game. As of 13 September 2013, Godus was released on Steam early access as a beta version.

A freemium iOS version of the game was released 7 August 2014, and the Android version was released on 27 November 2014.

With the end of Molyneuxs social experiment, Curiosity – Whats Inside the Cube?, it was revealed that in Godus a single person will reign as the virtual god over all other players. It was also revealed that this same player will receive a portion of the revenue made by the game. As of February 2015, the winner Bryan Henderson has still not received the prize. In March 2017, Molyneux claimed that Godus had not made a profit and Henderson would not receive money.

In February 2015, 22Cans switched focus to another title The Trail, and the remaining Godus development team acknowledged that they" simply can’t see us delivering all the features promised on the KickStarter page.” Due to Molyneuxs apparent abandonment of the project, contrary to his earlier enthusiasm, many fans requested refunds. Furthermore, fans frequently cite "disgraceful treatment" and blatant lying in association with Godus, and by extension Molyneux.

In February 2016, 22cans released a new game, titled Godus Wars, adding in a combat-focused real-time strategy mode, but the original Godus game is still a standalone world separate from the new game.

                                     

3. Reception

Eurogamers Tom Bramwell expressed concern that successful game designers were funding their projects using Kickstarter, stating: "Im looking at Kickstarter through the prism of Molyneux and Braben and Schafer and Fargo reaching out of their mansions and rattling their golden cups in my direction. They instantly put me in the mentality of a consumer. I made the choice when I left Microsoft to become a small developer again and to define myself like a small developer defines itself, and that is someone who takes unbelievable risks – foolish risks like releasing Curiosity and doing Kickstarter." Molyneux also said that he invested a lot of his own money into the development studio 22cans.

Additional criticisms were made over the freemium model chosen for the iOS version. Gamers and Kickstarter supporters have reacted negatively to the broken promises by Molyneux, and demands for refunds or apologies have not been met or addressed.
