Godus Latest News
Oh, boy, 22cans, I wanna pull for you. I wanna believe that you’re trying to make a cool, weird game with Godus. But you just keep making it so hard for me.
Remember Godus? Peter Molyneux’s indie project that was revealed as part of the iOS block-tapping oddity, Curiosity? Where that one kid was going to be god of the game world and receive part of the game’s profits? Yeah, that’s the one!
If you follow iconic gaming industry figure Peter Molyneux on social media, you may have been surprised to see he announced his retirement from the video game industry alongside an announcement that GODUS would be pulled from Steam. It turns out these announcements were false and Molyneux's Twitter account was hacked.
Jack Attridge, co-creator of Godus, is leaving Peter Molyneux'sto pursue his own game development path. He started the process back in January, before the between RPS and Molyneux.
Attridge is preparing a "parting gift" for 22Cans, his former boss and mentor, and backers of Godus in the form of a documentary about the developer since its founding, up until the recent unpleasantness.
Peter Molyneux in an interview withhas said he understands "people are sick of hearing my voice and hearing my promises," and so now the veteran game designer is "going to stop doing press".
He blames his passion for ideas, and that "people think that these are hard and fast promises," but then technical issues arise and sometimes ideas just don't fit. It's time he stepped away from the mic.
