Redesigning Settlements – Our Philosophy

17 Juni 2014

Over the last few weeks, we’ve recognised that since the v2.0.5 update, an increasing number of players have found Godus’ Settlement mechanics to be a bit unintuitive and, well, just not as fun as they ought to be.

So, a core group of us went away and brainstormed a few solutions to this dilemma and in the process, we rediscovered some of our original ideas.

We’re not quite ready to share the full details of how we are going to be bringing these ideas to fruition – some of the new features and functions we have in mind for the Settlements revamp are quite advanced and we think it’s better to let you know precisely what we’re cooking up once everything has been locked down and proven to be technologically viable.

However, since we’re very excited and enthusiastic about these advancements, we do want to let you in on our thinking and demonstrate that we have read your comments, digested your feedback and are sprinting hard to bring them into reality.

What drives our thinking about Settlements is the course of human history itself. We want to give you a way to take your initially small group primitive followers and take them into the agricultural age while accounting for considerable growth in population.

While the current system does make specific areas within your Homeworld more distinct and civilised, we would prefer to do so in a way that’s less restrictive and more naturalistic, all while amplifying your abilities as a god.

When placing a settlement with the current system, it can be challenging to create farms around it due to the dense population you will have created up to that point. Additionally, all settlements tend to look a bit too similar to each other for our liking.

We know that that current system can lead to confusion over how to get the most out of your Settlements and even over the size of your Settlement before it is placed into the world. What we want is to give you a more accessible way to further the development of your Followers’ habitation and one that doesn’t rely on being menu driven or needing a lot of intricate GUI elements.

The new system we’re currently working on will add much more diversity to your Settlements. We’re developing an inventive (surprising, even) solution to make Settlements more charming, more efficient and more aesthetically pleasing… and makes you feel more like you’re playing with god-like powers, too.

We want to deliver on our vision of a world as presented in our original concept art for Godus, where Settlements can thrive across multiple layers of the landscape.

Creating Settlements under the current system does make good use of Godus’ trademark sculpting mechanics and allows you to bring life to flat areas, however we’ve seen that for many players, this tends to lead to the whole of their Homeworld being flattened as they expand their population.

We would prefer there to be more visual variety in how you evolve your Homeworld and between the Settlements you create for your Followers. We want to enable you to build Settlements in a less restrictive and uniform way.

Our goal is to enable you to see your followers build vertically as well as horizontally in harmony with a beautiful, undulating landscape.

We want to make the involvement of farming in the Bronze Age and mining in the Iron Age feel more compelling and challenging without forcing you to worry about too much micromanagement.

We’re quite fond of how the current system works for Builders – we think it’s clear, simple and fun to play. We also like the current balance between building houses and farms, as it neatly reflects how we humans behave in the real world.

That said, the current way you assign roles to your Settlement’s workers is too clunky and fussy – we have seen that it has led to confusion, especially with the Buffer class of follower.

Our new designs focus on making the way you govern your farmers and miners more immediate, instinctive and cohesive by extending existing, proven systems as well as doing a better job in how we describe them.

The way we think about crops is as a resource that makes sense without us needing to describe it in too much detail. We want you to think of them as behaving just like they do in the real world – people need food to work, after all.

As such, we like how the production of wheat is tied to building new Abodes. However, it’s become very clear that the current mechanics can be quite hard to grasp and require too much explanation, especially for less advanced players.

While the logic behind how wheat works at the moment is sound, it’s obviously not as fun as it could be. Also, the fact wheat disappears instead of being a resource you collect is in conflict with how we think about it as a resource in the first place.

We’re exploring new lines of thought as to how your followers harvest wheat as a resource for building and have this mechanic be as intuitive and engaging.

One of the most requested features from the community is for a way to automatically collect Belief. We’re now in the process of implementing a Statue of Collection, which will collect all the Belief generated by your followers within a given area.

We’re also looking into ways to increase the level of detail for the information you can gather about your Followers and Settlements as a way to enhance your god-like omniscience.

We’re sprinting hard as a team to get this new functionality into your hands as quickly as we can – we can’t wait to show you in full just what we’re creating for you. We hope that the new Settlement designs will not only address some of your concerns, but also lead to a more enjoyable and empowering Godus experience.

We’re eager to hear your thoughts, so please share your impressions in either our Kickstarter backer forum or in our Steam Early Access forum here.

Beginner’s Guide to Abodes

17 Juni 2014

Today we thought it might be worth talking about the Abodes and different layers that you can build on. After reading through a couple of messages we received though our Support portal as well as over Facebook and Reddit, we thought it might a good idea to create a little guide to give you all a clearer picture.

When you get to a certain part of the game, you may notice that you can no longer build Abodes on high level ground (the dark green layer to be exact, or eleven layers above the first layer of grass to even more exact). Some believe that this could possibly be a bug – however, that’s not the case as you can build above the dark green layer!

Simples, but it will take a little bit of work to do – in fact, you’ll need to unlock the Mining Settlement and gather 30 ore to unlock the Stone Lodge. After you get past this point, you’ll be able to build to your heart’s content.

In Godus, there are many layers you can build on, but you may be asking yourself which Abodes goes where.

Starting off with the sand layer, your Followers will start off building Shelters. Once you have reached a population of 10 you’ll unlock the Straw Hut Abode and your Followers will start building this type of Abode instead of Shelters. A bit later in the game, once you’ve unlocked the Farming Settlement and gathered 9 Wheat, you will unlock the Wooden Hut and your Followers will start building these Abodes on the sand layer instead of Straw Huts. This wraps up any Abodes for the sand layer.

Next up, the grass layer (or the light green layer). Once you reach a population level of 27 you’ll unlock the Mud Hut Abode and this will allow your Followers to make the transition from sand to grass. Upon reaching the 115 population level, you’ll unlock the Mud Cabins – this Abode will really help in building up your population and in no time you’ll unlock the Farming Settlement. Once your Farmers have gathered 9 Wheat you’ll unlock the Wooden Hut Abode and this will take over the Straw Hut and Mud Hut Abodes. Once you have gathered 24 Wheat you’ll unlock the Wooden Cabin Abode and this will take over the Mud Cabin Abode.

Next up is the Wooden Lodge Abode, which unlocks at 70 Wheat – this will immediately start to increase your population level. Once you have reached 900 population level, you’ll unlock the final Wooden Abode called Wooden Cottage and this is the last Abode you can build on the grass layer. Once you have unlocked the Wooden Hut, Wooden Cabin, Wooden Lodge and Wooden Cottage, you’ll be able to use these from the first grass layer and ten layers above. Once you have reach the eleventh layer (dark green) above the first grass layer, you will no longer be able to progress with these Abodes.

At this point, you’ll need to unlock the Mining Settlement and gather 30 Ore to unlock the Stone Lodge Abode, after 140 Ore you’ll unlock the Stone Cottage Abode. Once these Abodes have been unlocked, you’ll be able to continue building past the dark green grass layer, up until you reach the snow layer (or the top white layer). If you try to build these type of Abodes below the dark green grass layer, you’ll just end up building more Wooden Abodes.

That about wraps things up this guide. We hope you find it helpful and if you need any extra help, you are always welcome to drop us a message at

What's new in GODUS Update v2.0.5

Please find below the change list for the v2.0.5 update. As always, please be sure to report any bugs and issues to or and feel free to discuss features for future updates on our forum here.


  • Storms now have a chance to replenish chests in your world within your area of influence
  • Settlements have been redesigned to feel more like settlements instead of a sprawl

How Settlements Work
Mining ore and farming for wheat now occurs as a variable rate depending on how many mines and farms you build; how many workers are in a mine or farm; any buffs applied to the mine or farm and/or its workers; and proximity of a mine or farm to a settlement (i.e. how far miners or farmers have to commute to work), as opposed to specific amounts of ore and wheat gathered over time.

The resource bar now correlates to resource generated per hour instead of a total amount of the resource collected.
  • The more fields/mines you have, the higher your per hour rate will be. For example, building additional mines/farms will increase the overall rate at which you generate ore/wheat. The more mines/farms you build, the faster you will level up.
  • Fields and mines further from the Settlement are less efficient than those within a Settlement
  • Fields, mines and abodes built inside a Settlement do not cost any resources to build however if you build outside a Settlement, it costs resources. The cost is displayed on the empty plots.
  • Various balance improvements, including reduction of time it takes to complete building

Crash on start up: Players were that the game will crash at the splash screen, which should now be fixed in this version. If the problem persists, please refer to the workaround here.

Crash when hitting "return to home" on voyages: Players were reporting a crash every time they select "return to home" on a voyage, which should now be fixed in this version.

Finger of God causes red graphic issues: Players were reporting a graphics issue of red squares whenever using the Finger of God, which should now be fixed in this version.

Return to Civilization button disappears upon abandoning challenges: Players were reporting the red message "Map Preview" at the beginning of each challenge, if not closed, caused the Return to Civilization button to disappear. That should now be fixed in this version.

Additional fixes:
  • Sculpting tutorial responsiveness fixed
  • Keyboard hot keys updated to reflect new configuration
  • Memory optimizations since version 2.0.4, increasing responsiveness and stability
  • Buried chest graphical effects should no longer disappear

Known Issues

For the full list of known issues feel free to read through our Known Issues thread.

Freeze upon quitting: The most consistently reported bug is that the game freezes upon quitting and has to be closed via the Task Manager. This is due to a middleware issue and a workaround is being investigated.

Meteor will sometimes leave behind small pieces of land: When a meteorite strikes it can leave behind a small square of land that can’t be removed by sculpting.

The Belief button will appear faded out at the beginning of the Tutorial before unlocking Belief: This bug affects the Mac build only.

Early Access-Review
EDIT for Version 2.0.:
As far as i can tell, the basic game is STILL the same. Less clicking, of course, i give you that 22cans. But most of the other bad mechanics are still there:

1. Cards are now Stickers, obtained in the same way as before, working the same way as before.
2. Belief takes horribly long to generate and you can't sculpt land without it.
3. I still have to click or hold and slide over every belief-bubble hovering over the huts of my followers to collect it, instead of just having a constant number of belief rising my belief counter like every other Real-time-game! That's game standard, dear developers.

There is more to criticise because I only played about half an hour of Version 2.0, but I still hope it gets better. (And it is better than previous versions, as far as I can say, so the potential is there.)

I still do NOT recommend to buy this game in its current state, but it is only 49% done, so keep it up, 22cans.

UPDATE for V2.0:
Although they had fan-feedback and 5 months of time:

Only little difference to previous versions,
slightly changed graphics and the pay-to-play-structure is still obvious.
For myself, I do not like the new journey-feature that replaced the previous battle-feature to obtain stickers, but I think they should completely get rid of this sticker-unlock-nonsense and put in a traditional ressource-gathering system that would give villagers a purpose automatically.

But on the other hand, the basic gameplay is kinda fun and who doesn't like to be a god, although a lesser one at the moment, and rule over big settlements?

OPINION for CURRENT Version 2.01:
Do not buy if not frust-resistent, but hey, now I believe that it could become a good game if they work hard on it.

Original Post:

I expected this game to be good, at least some kind of Populous-The Beginning 2.0, which would have been very nice.
If YOU expect that too, DO NOT buy this game in its current state.
I hope it gets better soon (maybe they should fire Peter Molyneux - Ingame shop, fuuuuu.-,-)

At the moment it is more like a building place - and dirt moving simulator, the bad sort, of course.
Digging, click, click, click, click, yeah, enough space for a small house,
click, click, click, yeah, villager builds house,
click, click, click, oh, another chest discovered,
click, click, nice, a new card, now i only need another 14 ♥♥♥♥ing CARDS to unlock a new technology!!!

The lack of possibilities to interact properly with your villagers and their total apathy when confronted with your "powers" made this game really annoying after some time, despite this, villagers also lack of any kind of intelligence, beeing only puppets in this big "I make everything flat to build as much houses as i can"-game.

The biggest problem are not the clickediclick-orgies, it is the fact that neither the world nor its inhabitants seem to have any life to care or speak of and that makes the game feel kinda soulless.

Please, 22cans, kick out the stupid cards or at least implement the feature properly, give your villagers a backstory and emotions and make me feel like my decisions and actions really matter more than burning trees, flatten lands and crushing stones.

Sincerely, a disappointed gamer

Bloß nicht kaufen. Da macht es mehr Spaß Zufallszahlen in Exceltabellen einzutragen. Von dem Geklicke bekommt man Schmerzen und ein Spiel ist eigentlich nicht vorhanden. Sieht aus wie ein halbfertiges F2P Handyspiel.

- Sinnfreie, Spielfluss unterbrechende Timer (wie bei F2P Tablettiteln zu finden)
- Klickfest (Sammle Glauben durch Klicken auf jedes einzelne Haus)
- KI auf dem Stand Populus I-II (laut Molyneux kommt da auch nicht mehr viel)
- Transformation der Umgebung nur minimal(wirkt wie auf Touchpad zugeschnitten)

Gesamteindruck: Gameplay, KI, Grafik -> F2P iOS/Android

Early Access erklärt Bugs, Glitches, oder fehlenden Inhalt. Mitnichten kann es als Ausrede für grundlegend schlechtes Design dienen.

Entscheidungsfreiheit, Individualität, Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und glaubhafte Untertanen wünsche ich mir in einer Göttersimulation.
In Godus vermisse Ich alle genannten Punkte.

Es war ein Fehlkauf.

Am 15.02.2014 wurde nun ein Interview mit Peter Molyneux veröffentlich, in dem nun seinen Plan erläutert das Godus free tp play sein wird.
Nachdem es die letzten Monate extrem still um 22 Cans wurde, die Community auf Twitter, reddit und Godusforum quasi ausgestorben ist, ist dieses Interview nicht nur ein Faustschlag in das Gesicht der Kickstarter und Steam User sondern grenzt an Betrug.
Möglicherweise betrifft das ganze Freemium Modell nur die mobilen Endgeräte, alles in allem glaube ich allerdings nicht, dass Peter Molyneux nochmal die Möglichkeit bekommt ein gepledgetes Spiel zu entwickeln.

Meiner Meinung nach eine reine Abzocke!
Als ich mir das Spiel gekauft habe konnte ich mich noch sehr dafür begeistern. Ich habe mir gedacht, dass es natürlich noch nicht sehr weit entwickelt ist (Early Access halt), aber dass es einfach so bleibt und seit Monaten absolut gar keine Updates kommen, damit hab ich nicht gerechnet. Anstatt dass die Updates, die ganz am Anfang noch gekommen sind, das Spielerlebnis verbessern haben sie leider durch Verkomplizierung eher das Gegenteil bewirkt.
Finger weg!
