Peter Molyneux’s The Trail strolls onto PC

Lionheaded bullfrog Peter Molyneux and his 22Cans studio today launched the PC version of their hike 'em up The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site]. It's a game where players walk a path across a wild frontier, not to be confused with walking simulators where we get to have a lovely wander where we please. Along the way, folks get to collect stuff, take up a…

That hiking game from Peter Molyneux is coming to PC

What’s the auld rascal up to now? The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site] is a multiplayer hiking game by 22Cans, the studio headed by Peter Molyneux and responsible for the troubled and still-in-early-access civilisation builder Godus. It's been out on iGizmos for some time, but now it’s coming to Steam, say the developers. I haven’t been keeping track of it but let’s look at this…

Godus Wars Scraps Surprise In-Game Charges

Godus Wars [official site], the second unfinished Godus game from development team 22Cans, costs £11 on Steam. And until a few moments ago, once you'd battled through the first continent of its combat-focused spin-off, to play any more of the game cost another $5. Yup, this new "free to owners of Godus" early access, severely unfinished game included surprise premium in-game purchases! Unsurprisingly, on discovering…

Oh Godus! 22cans Release Godus Wars Into Early Access

As if one unfinished Godus game weren't enough, Peter Molyneux's studio 22cans have launched another. Godus Wars arrived [official site] is out on Steam Early Access today. It appears to be a combat-oriented spin-off with the fighty improvements that 22cans had billed as coming to the original Godus. Folks who bought or backed Godus get Godus Wars free, and it even comes with Godus thrown…

Peter Molyneux Interview: “I haven’t got a reputation in this industry any more”

When Peter Molyneux agreed to speak to me, I knew the interview was going to be tense. I knew that an article we'd posted on Monday, asking what was going on with the development of Godus, had kicked up an enormous storm for 22cans and its boss, with the rest of the gaming press picking up and running with it. So I assumed, when he…

Loss Of Faith: Will Godus Ever Have A God Of Gods?

Eurogamer have published a really superb article in which they speak to Bryan Henderson, the "winner" of Curiosity, who was promised a life-changing prize. That prize turned out to be the role of "God of Gods" in the multiplayer version of Godus, and a share of the money made by the game. Well, a share of the money made by the multiplayer bit of the…

22cans Confirm Godus Team Shrinkage, Admit Mistakes

Yesterday we reported on the giant mess that 22cans' Godus appears to be in. After a lead developer on the project stated that Kickstarter goals will likely not be met, and woefully dissatisfied backers lamented the lack of progress in the PC version, it appears some damage limitation is now in effect. A new video from the studio attempts to put minds at rest, while…

Oh Godus, What The Hell’s Going On?

Hey, remember Godus?! It was successfully Kickstarted in 2012, despite launching with no video at all, as the name of "Peter Molyneux" still carried enough currency to raise over half a million pounds for his return to the god game genre. Just over two years have gone by, and mobile free-to-play versions of the game launched last year, but what state is the PC development…

Molyneux On GODUS’ Surprise Publisher, Free-To-Play

Peter Molyneux likes to say things - perhaps a little too much, if a few forgotten promises pertaining to Curiosity and GODUS are any indication. Yesterday, he and I discussed Curiosity's aftermath, what it means for GODUS, and why things like a PC version of the almighty floating cubolith never surfaced. Today, we continue that discussion with what exactly the sudden (and very unexpected) addition…

Molyneux On Curiosity, GODUS, And Forgotten Promises

Most cubes contain air, sugar, or tiny men named Rubik. Not Peter Molyneux's, though. Instead, Molyneux himself emerged from the cuboid cocoon with promises of virtual immortality. Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland will soon be godding at an eons-old level even though he's just 18. For some, though, that prize rang hollow. "All that tapping," many cried, "for the sole purpose of advertising 22Cans' next…

Too Human: Curiosity Winner’s GODUS Prize Temporary

Peter Molyneux's Curiosity is officially, incontrovertibly over. A young man by the name of Bryan Henderson from Edinburgh, Scotland cracked the not-quite-infinite cuboid egg, and out oozed godhood. Well, OK, virtual godhood in 22Cans' upcoming GODUS - which has drawn some rather, er, mixed reactions from mere mortals. I got in touch with Peter Molyneux to talk about that, potential dishonesty, how Henderson's "god of…

GODUS Publishing Via F2P Mobile Distro, PC Unmentioned

UPDATE: We've spoken to 22Cans, and have some answers to the questions people are asking about the confusing new news. Eyebrows to the top half of your forehead - it's concerned speculation time. There's been an odd announcement from Peter Molyneux and 22Cans, about their Kickstartered GODUS. In a video oddly aimed at backers only, but available on Youtube (and below), Molyneux has announced a…
