Godus was... a bit of a mess, to be honest, and not the first time that's ambitious promises haven't quite been fulfilled. According to the veteran developer, that's partly down to the Kickstarter process.

Populous and Fable creatorhas reportedly announced the next game project he's working on while at The Fun & Serious Games Festival in Bilbao, Spain. It's unclear whether it’s funny or serious.

A new content update is in the works with Godus set to expand its land mass with an all-new location for followers. To do that they'll first to need to uncover and rebuild an Ark.
It's no small feat as the Ark is enormous, and can hold up to 500 followers. Wayworld is the new land, and it's much harsher than our Homeworld. We get all new features too.

A new official build for Godus has been released vis Steam announces 22cans in their latest blog, but they've also pushed out another Op-In branch developer build for those willing to test something less stable.
It's mainly focused on "a couple pesky bugs." There's also a new video from Peter Molyneux and Jack as they discuss the design process behind Godus and his previous games.
