If you’ve not heard of Godus, the upcoming deity simulator by heralded developer Peter Molyneux, you need only glance at the game’s ultra successful Kickstarter to see how popular it already is. The title is scheduled to arrive on Mac and Windows through the Steam Early Access program on September 13.
The game lets you play as a god who must manage a civilization and defend against attacks and other threats. When Molyneux’s iOS app Curiosity — a “game” of sorts that had users chipping away at a giant block with only a single person winning the right to view what was inside the core — finally concluded, it was revealed that the winner would become the über-God in Godus for one year. This player can cause huge shifts in the game world that impact all other players, and that individual will also receive revenue from sales once it is released.
An iOS version of Godus is also planned, though no details on a firm release window have been offered at this time.
