Bryan Henderson has told the people behind a new game bundle designed to give him up to $10,000 that he wants the money to go to charity instead.
22cans has pulled a controversial microtransaction in the recently-released Godus Wars after a player outcry.
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.
The people behind an upcoming game bundle want to give Bryan Henderson, the winner of Curiosity: What's Inside the Cube?, $10,000.
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.
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.
Godus co-creator Jack Attridge has stepped away from the still-in-development Populous spiritual successor that he's been working on with Peter Molyneux.
Nintendo today announced it will begin releasing games on mobile phones and tablets, after years of opposition to smart device development.
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.
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.
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.
Populus and Black & White creator Peter Molyneux has released his latest god game, Godus, on iOS today.
Brian Fargo, boss of Wasteland 2 developer inXile Entertainment, has declared Steam maker Valve the "saviour of the PC" for making digital distribution mainstream.
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?
"You're going to go away and say that f***ing bastard, he's promising stuff all over again."
