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.
When it comes to game designers, one of the more famous (or infamous depending on your view) names would be Peter Molyneux. He has been a part of the game industry since the 80s and has had a hand in the development of games from Populous, to Dungeon Keeper, among many other titles.
He has also developed a reputation for over promising on his ideas with some famous examples being Black and White and The Movies. But you can’t fault him for not experimenting with new ideas. And this month’s idea is to bring an old classic back with a generally new concept.
