Godus

Is Godus dead?

"There's lots of areas to explore and finish."

Development on the PC version of Godus has ground to a halt, Eurogamer understands.

Peter Molyneux returns to Godus with RTS update

We haven't heard a peep out of Godus, Peter Molyneux's controversial god game, for nearly a year. Now, it's back in the news with the release of a free combat-focused update.

Godus Wars - out now on Steam as an Early Access title - is a single-player real-time strategy twist on 22cans' god sim game. It's a free update for existing Godus owners and Kickstarter backers, and replaces Godus on Steam (Godus Wars comes with Godus), priced 10.99.

You pick a deity and battle against rival computer-controlled gods for control of continents and, ultimately, the world. Before each map you pick a loadout of four God Power and troop buff cards from your deck, then head into battle.

"It was tempting to retire…"

After his self-imposed press exile, Peter Molyneux returns in an exclusive Eurogamer interview.

Peter Molyneux has changed. He's a new man with a new plan, after what he tells me was the most difficult year of his career.

Meet the man cleaning up after the Godus disaster

"What a simple thing to f*** up."

I meet the man trying to fix 22cans in the bar of the Hilton Brighton Metropole. The Develop conference is happening all around us, although at a slower pace this morning, because last night everyone went out for a drink.

Rich Stanton on: Requiem for a dreamer

The god-damned tragedy of Peter Molyneux.

The story of how Peter Molyneux got his big break in the games industry is revealing. After his first game The Entrepreneur failed to sell, Molyneux gave up on games and started exporting baked beans to the Middle East. Soon afterwards Commodore, confusing Molyneux's company Taurus with a networking company called Torus, flew him to the States and mistakenly offered him ten brand-new Amigas.

Molyneux's broken promise to Curiosity winner honoured by Devolver

Bryan Henderson is now a god in Not a Hero.

Earlier this week we detailed the story of Bryan Henderson, the 20-year-old man who won Peter Molyneux's iOS app, Curiosity, upon which he was promised to be the god of the studio's next game, Godus, and receive a portion of its revenue. Instead, all he got was a stupid T-shirt.

The God who Peter Molyneux forgot

For Curiosity winner Bryan Henderson, the prize inside the cube has been anything but life-changing.

During the early afternoon of 26th May 2013, 18-year-old Scot Bryan Henderson tapped on Peter Molyneux's Curiosity cube for the last time. He had won the game.

Godus is out now for free on iOS

PC version is getting a "spectacular, bonkers & undeniably amazing" feature.

Populus and Black & White creator Peter Molyneux has released his latest god game, Godus, on iOS today.

Can Godus be fixed?

Fewer clicks don't mean more fun in the 2.0 version of Molyneux's god game.

Godus isn't ready for a re-review yet, but with version 2.0 promising to bring "vast changes", we sent Chris Donlan back in to get the new lay of the land. He's spent 30 hours playing version 2.0.4 (a new update allows access to developer builds). So is 22Cans' "regenesis of the god game" starting to make sense?
