This week Ken and I were joined by returning guest Jamie Madigan to discuss our thoughts following the summer sale extravaganza from two weeks ago.
When news of a Kickstarter to revive the God Game genre was announced by Peter Molyneux, there was excitement and some reservation at the thought of giving Peter another chance to run with one of his dream ideas. Yet the prospect to get another God Game was too good to pass up and Godus was funded.
Months later and after numerous delays, broken promises and confusing mechanics, Godus is as far away from the God Game genre as a game can get and at this point one of the worst projects to come from Kickstarter.
Following the horribleness of Dungeon Keeper mobile, Peter Molyneux talked about how he wants to evolve the Free To Play genre into what he’s calling “Invest To Play.” Of course after that was revealed, many gamers scoffed at the idea especially after the bad press surrounding Godus. But there may be something there, as the term Free To Play continues to get bigger and the problems that have become associated with it.
