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

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

Project GODUS blends the power, growth and scope of Populous with the detailed construction and multiplayer excitement of Dungeon Keeper and the intuitive interface and technical innovation of Black & White.

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.
