From On High: Molyneux Launches God Game Kickstarter


Molyneux's new company, 22Cans, has launched a £450,000 Kickstarter called Project GODUS. Behold: "It’s an innovative reinvention of Populous, the original god game and delivers exciting global co-operation, competition, creation and destruction to a whole new generation."

Video below. Watch.

Honestly, I am not quite sure what to think. On the one hand I thought the Curiosity "experiments" might have been leading up to something genuinely weird and new, and on the other, if he goes all in on making the ultimate god game... Not that Curiosity was a particularly promising first step, either.

But then, if we're going to get a load of space games like it's the mid-90s again, why not god games, too? I just don't know if this is the right way to do it.

Yeah, it's an interesting one. I can't wait to see what happens here. And September next year suddenly looks a lot more intriguing.
