“Reinvention Of Populous” From The Man Who Made The Original
The next project from the Curiosity developers 22cans has now been revealed; Project GODUS. Touted as “a delightful reinvention of the god game from 22cans and Peter Molyneux, who created the genre,” the title has gone onto Kickstarter to in order to secure the funds it needs to be made.
Described as a blend of “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,” 22cans hopes to raise £450,000 during its month-long crowd-funding campaign. Additional details suggest that the multiplayer will see two teams of 8 gods battling it out for supremacy, and that it will be developed initially for PC and mobile devices (although more platforms are up for consideration if stretch goals come into play.)
Pledge rewards range from a heartfelt thanks, all the way up to a VIP invite to next year’s E3 as Peter Molyneux’s special guest, along with copies of the game and beta access.
