Molyneux Wants To Re-Imagine Populous With Project GODUS, Needs Funding

by Rainier on Nov. 21, 2012 @ 4:49 p.m. PST

Godus Wars mixes tactical Real Time Strategy gameplay with the mechanics of the God-Game genre.

Populous was created over 22 years ago, and we believe that to date, nothing has come close to emulating its powerfully godlike experience. It’s this experience we aim to re-imagine.

The original Populous hailed from the 8-bit era but GODUS will use the most modern technology the world has to offer.

GODUS is instantly accessible, easy to learn but immensely deep. It’s a living world, unique, detailed, and it’s a world you influence, whether you’re good or evil. As you flourish and build your own cult, you’ll engage in pitched battles with other gods and their cults. It’s a multiplayer power-struggle the way it should be.

Plus you get to be a god. In fact, play well and you get to be the ultimate god!

Peter Molyneux's 22cans is looking for £450,000 through Kickstarter to fund the project.
