New Update, Q+A with Peter & Jack, plus Info on Godus for Android

With so much going on here at the studio right now, we’ve a bit of a bumper update for you. Sit back and we’ll take you through all our latest comings and goings.



Version 3.1 for iOS and v2.3.1 for Steam out today
We are releasing an incremental update for both the iOS and Steam versions of Godus today so as to address the recent issues that a few of our players had been experiencing when trying to launch the game, along with other various bug fixes.

As always, if ever you run into any unexpected problems with the game, please contact our dedicated Tech Support team via http://Support.22cans.com.

Here’s a list of notable changes due in today’s new build:
  • Expiration of Facebook token fix causing freeze on launch (iOS)
  • Fix for info panel crash in tutorial section
  • Fix for crash on load for players with very large number temples
  • Shortened intro video to reduce game’s memory footprint


Godus for Android
As you may have noticed from our recent weekly dev activity updates, we’re currently working on bringing Godus to Android for all devices equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and above. We’ve been making great headway and we’re looking forward to releasing Godus on the Google Play store towards the middle of next month, in time for Thanksgiving.

The Android release of Godus incorporates all the exciting elements featured in the latest version of the game for iOS and Steam. Now Android players will also be able to advance their growing civilization into the recently released Frontier Age, where they can look forward to exploring Weyworld, a vast land with all-new challenges, unique surroundings and fresh mysteries to uncover.



Peter & Jack answer your questions
Recently, over on our Steam forums, long-time contributor Gmr Leon kindly collated a bunch of questions from around the Mac & PC community asking for detailed insight on the current state of the game and our intentions for the future.

With no question too daunting, Peter and Jack set about answering each questions as fully and thoroughly as possible. You can find the results in the three videos below.

http://youtu.be/EJyi3PYTnME
http://youtu.be/ZbMCd99gElw
http://youtu.be/NuAFEDNYu0k
They had such a good time answering these questions that we’ve already gone ahead and started recording a follow-up Q&A session, which we hope to share with you later this week.


Balance File Editor & Steamworks integration coming this Friday
Lastly, but my no means leastly, we will be releasing the Balance File Editor to the Opt-in Branch of Steam on Friday of this week.

Our one and only Pavle ‘Big Thunder’ Mihajlovic is hard at work finishing up the tool to make it ready for public use. It’s no understatement to say that we can’t wait to see what you make of it when you start sharing your balance files with each other via Steamworks!

That’s all for today, but as ever we’d love for you to join in the discussion on Facebook, Twitter, reddit and our forums – see you on the boards!

Welcome to Weyworld - Frontier Age Arrives on Steam

Today we’re releasing the first major expansion for Godus, extending the game by introducing a whole new land to explore, full of mystery and unique surroundings.

With this expansive and game-changing update, you’ll be tasked with building a massive Ark, filling it with your tiny, adoring Followers and setting sail for Weyworld - an undiscovered land just waiting to be explored. In Weyworld you will find new secrets to uncover, rival tribes to meet and a host of new god-like abilities to unlock.

Additionally, we have redesigned the Voyages mini-game to give you new ways to play and win unique rewards to decorate your world.

The lost Ark
Your people long to move to a new land and to do this, you must help them build an Ark for their journey across uncharted waters. This Ark will take all the Followers who worked on it to a new land called Weyworld, along with huge amount of resources – 500 Ore and 700 Wheat, to be precise.

Building this Ark is no easy feat and will take a considerable amount of time and resources to complete. Once ready, it will carry up to 500 of your Followers on the voyage to Weyworld. Don’t worry, even though this is a one-way migration for your seafaring Followers, as their almighty god you will be able to return to Homeworld whenever you choose via the Lighthouse.

Weyworld is waiting
Once the Ark arrives at Weyworld, your first task will be to house all the Followers aboard in new abodes unique to this land.

You’ll quickly notice that Weyworld has its own distinctive visual style – it’s a desert world where the trees and rocks you’re familiar with in Homeworld are replaced by cacti and baked earth. That’s not the only difference, however – in Weyworld, crops need to be built on verdant land and mines on rugged land if your want them to flourish and your Followers to prosper.

You’ll also find a third type of terrain – hallowed ground. Here you will be able to build monasteries of various sizes – while these produce no workers, they do generate an awful lot of belief!

Your wayfaring Followers aren’t the first to call Weyworld home – you’ll discover three tribes of mischievous Astari up to their usual tricks. The Astari have hidden an enormous treasure in Weyworld and it’s up to you to claim it for your Followers.

Enter the Frontier Age
Weyworld ushers in the Frontier Age, bringing with it a new Timeline and new cards for you to unlock with new stickers. All the cards you would have unlocked in Homeworld will be active in Weyworld - any cards not unlocked can be completed by returning to Homeworld.

Some of the new abilities you’ll earn will enhance your Followers’ lives and others will increase your own godly powers – here’s a few that you’ll discover in the new world:
  • Blue skiesby your will the skies shall remain bright and clear. Storms will occur less frequently.
  • Stormy weatherkeep the skies angry by your wrath! Storms will appear more frequently.
  • Cometblast apart layers of granite with these celestial projectiles.
  • Enhanced meteorsthere’s nothing like a good meteor strike to vent your divine wrath… and now they’re even more powerful!
  • Epic sculptingunlock the ability to sculpt even more layers of terrain at once.
  • Dig Downunlock the ability to dig directly downwards by double-tapping/clicking.
  • Fleet of Foota healthy diet and plenty of exercise lead to fitter and faster Followers.
  • Crop rotationyour Farmers develop wonderful new agricultural techniques and fields now produce much more Wheat.
More Voyages, redesigned Voyages
We’ve refined the gameplay for Voyages in this update – you no longer have to complete a Voyage within a limited amount of time. However, the more quickly you complete a Voyage, the more points you’ll earn. What do points mean? Points mean prizes! The higher your score in a Voyage, the more stars you’ll complete for it, with a total of three stars available for each Voyage.

We’ve also added a new series of Voyages with this update, called Spooky Shores – earning a high score in these Voyages will unlock a slew of suitably-spooky Halloween themed content, such as creepy masks for your Followers or eerie graves for your Settlements.

Future updates
We still have plenty left in store to bring to Weyworld and the Frontier Age.

Future updates will add an area that’s home to a new rival tribe along with sheep that roam the land, as well as for the game’s dynamic water to turn previously barren lands into fertile plains.

Coming soon to PC & Mac - Balance File Editor & Steamworks integration
We have some very good news for everyone playing Godus on Steam for Mac and Windows PC – the hotly anticipated Balance File Editor we first detailed in this blog is confirmed to be released on Friday 31st October.

This tool will allow you modify how many aspects of the game behave, from wait timers to Belief generation and more besides. Thanks to Steamworks integration, you’ll also be able to share and swap your personalised balance files with each other also with us here at 22cans. We’ll be looking at the best and most popular balance changes you develop with a view to implementing them based on your feedback ahead of when Godus transitions out of Early Access and into full release.

Set sail for new discoveries!
You can download the Frontier Age update for Godus on the main branch of Steam right now just by launching the game. We’re looking forward to hearing what you make of all this new content on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and our forums – see you around!

Cross-platform development

Our development proceeds through sprints that may have differing platform focuses. As such, much of the gameplay available to you in v2.2 is the result of a recent mobile-focused sprint and we intend to progress to a PC-focused sprint within the coming months. Please take this into consideration, as while adjustments will continue to be made to the PC platform to account for the game's differing payment model (buy-to-play on PC & free-to-play on mobile), some areas of balance and design may retain certain elements of the mobile version for the time being.

This is a Kickstart project I regret backing. Since it's first iteration, it clearly showed it was a mobile game transplanted onto a PC. Regardless, I loved the art style and I played it for many many hours. Then 22Cans went silent for months and I lost interest and abandoned it. Recently they picked up and I've spent a few hours playing the latest build.

And it's ♥♥♥♥ing dreadful.

The mobile game transplated onto a PC has fully metamorphosed into a pay to win mobile title. As an example, take farming. As soon as you discover farming, you can no longer build. Anything. Unless you have wheat. Each farm produces wheat - in 90 minutes of real time. REAL TIME? WHAT IN THE ♥♥♥♥? So every one and a half hours, I can build a couple of houses. (And the ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥ farmers can't harvest the wheat, oh no, you have to do it yourself).

Of course, you can always buy wheat using gems. 22Cans love gems. They go out of their way to constantly point this out. They have built a game around the microtransactions of gems. Because PC users have already paid for the game (their words), PC users don't have to buy gems. Instead, we can sacrifice our followers in a pit to get a gem. Of course, that makes your followers hate you, also triggers another real time timer to respawn that follower - in 30 minutes or so. Whilst the new faction (which I have to admit, is funny) steal your followers.

The last update also added voyages, frustrating mini games where you try to get your little dudes to a temple for rewards. Of course, if you screw up then you can either way HOURS of real time for reinforcements to arrive to try again or... you got it, pay gems.

This game has so much promise. I really like the art style, the humour, and the ideas of the game. But the implementation is ♥♥♥♥ing attrocious.

I have never sworn so much in a review... I'm ♥♥♥♥ed with the direction of this game and it shows.

I shall go back to playing Banished. Hopefully 22Cans realize what sort of a ♥♥♥♥ed up abortion they are creating with these delays and reduce them to miniscule levels or I can't see this working. Maybe mobile users have a different mindset to traditional PC / console gamers as I don't understand how on earth they think putting realtime blocks in place makes a game fun.

This game is terrible. In the majority of early access games, i can say that, but only if i then say "But it might get better". With Godus, this is not the case. The game is terrible, and it isnt going to get better. Let me say a few things, before i get to the review, in fear of losing some people to boredom.

If you want Black and White 3: Do NOT buy this game.
If you want a city builder: Do NOT buy this game.
If you want a town simulator: Do NOT buy this game.
If you enjoyed farmville or other such games: You MIGHT enjoy this game.

This games very core concept is simple, really: use your "Dragging" Power to drag the land (Think of the land as a layer-cake, with evenly-sized "layers" to the landscape) to make areas of flat, even land. When a large enough area of flat land is found, a house plot will be placed. By clicking on a nearby house, a person will appear to walk over and build on the new plot of land.

The reason you do this is to generate a arbitrary resource, over time, called "Belief". With belief you can drag the land, place statues that increase the efficiency of the people and a few other, minor, things, such as directing your people in a specific direction.

To gather this belief, you click on a house when a pink bubble appears over each of their individual houses.

Then you drag some more land and get more houses.

But that isnt all, thankfully. You can also "Tech Up" through several "Epochs" of civilization - bronze age, iron age, and so on. To do this... you find "chests" scattered around the world - some underground, some out of your area of influence, some found by doing arbritarty minigames that amount to doing what you were doing already. When you find enough "chests", you can place the "Stickers" you get from the chests onto "Cards", which unlock "Technologies" which results in a advancemnt of "epoch". The reason all of those were in quotations was due to the fact that all of the above thing; Chests, Stickers, Cards, Technologies and Epochs, are all completetly arbritary. You find a "Furs" sticker, and nothing happens. You get the "Family" card and nothing happens. You advance a epoch, and nothing happens.

At best, the technology system is nothing more than a glorified banner representing how much you have played the game.

There is a horrible sounddesign (Wind that gets annoying, and various "PLING. PLONG. PLING" noises from clicking things) The graphics design is awful, consisting of manequin people (devoid of all personality, emotion, or even looks) Houses (Which are basically brown squares that all look the same) and the landscape (Which frankly looks just weird, really.)

Please. Dont buy this game. It is a waste of money. There is so little game in this game for the $20 you could spend on it. Go and buy another $20 game, or go get a book. Watch a movie. There is no reason to spend that large an ammount of money on this game.

Let's get the ground work out of the way.

I quite like Molyneux games. I played the crap out of Populous and Populous II as a kid (and syndicate wars, magic carpet and pretty much every other game he had a hand in in the late 80s and early 90s). and I loved most of them. Not all of them, but most of them. So I'm not of the "It's Molyneux! Get him!" mindset.

And I know that this game is very, very much in the early stages. It's understood that thre's not going to be a great deal of content, and that a lot of the cool stuff they want to put in won't be there for a while.

Fine.

But with all that, I cannot in good conscience recommend Godus. Not just in its current Early Access form, but at all. Not because it's Molyneux. Not because it's not ready. But because I have a real problem with the design choice that clicking a few thousand times to move landscape into a more efficient configuration. It's mind numbing. It's repetitive. It's physically uncomfortable after any length of time. And that process - the slowly dragging tiny bits of land so that settlers can be coaxed into building more or bigger settlements? That's the main mechnic of the game.

I got some brief enjoyment collecting belief as fast as I could to try and play the tune the belief bubbles make before it reset, but very brief. After about 10 minutes I realized that I was experiencing all the joy of a Skinner box.

The folks at 22 cans are working to make their game more fun. They really are. But until such time as they remove this bizarre fixation of social-media gameplay, I can't see a single reason to recommend this. The god game genre really does need a new contender, but unless something fundemental changes, this isn't it. I don't feel like some powerful (or even innefective) deity sheperding (or brutalizing) my believers. I feel like an under appreciated road worker who is tasked with levelling the land through mouseclicks alone.

Maybe this game will get the changes it deserves. Maybe something that's fun to play ratehr than just think about will come out of it. And if it doesn't, I'll vry happily eat my words. I'd really LIKE to eat my words.

When I first got this game I was hooked. I would have recommended it in a heartbeat to anyone who showed an interest in it. I even bought a copy for a good friend of mine so he could play it too. We even had PvP matches in the now removed multiplayer side of the game.

The game is not what I paid for anymore. I did not pay for a mobile touch screen game. The fact that 22cans have gone this route with Godus has made me play it less. I used to spend hours on end playing until it was changed to this mobile style.

Just take a look at this old screenshot which shows a few features I miss from the game:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=186039142

Features like flags on buildings to show when they are full that wave in the direction of the wind!
And a follower who is named after a friend who I beat in multiplayer PvP match.
Not to mention the better looking buildings with more variety.
The side bar of skills was easier to use than the current system.
How about the other races, like the ginger hair race or the mountain men. Now we are just us and the Astari :/

And have a look at this old screenshot too, the larger towns created using a statue with actual roads:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=327651332

Just these 2 screenshots alone show how far backwards the mobile style game took. So much variety removed to make it 'more suitable' for the mobile devices.

Again, I did not pay for a mobile game. I feel like I was cheated out of my money, led to believe I was getting a cool game that I actually enjoyed playing only to have it taken away from me and replaced with an inferior substistute, not worth even half what I paid for, that mobile users can play for free!
I get the feeling that this is what 22cans intended from the start, get our money and use it to launch themselves into the mobile gaming market.

For this I can not recommend Godus anymore. It's a sad case as I loved how it was going before they took the mobile route :(

This game is just an iOS game in development. The devs havent listened to anything the community told them, even if they said they would. After every patch, the game just became worse. Up to a point where it's straight out an mobile game. Even their roadmap, currently as of writing this, is saying that they've stopped the development of the PC version to focus on the iOS version for the casual gamers and that they will pick up PC development in the end of the summer/start of autumn.

I cannot recommend this game to anyone and if you REALLY want it. Wait until the mobile version is out and get it there instead. You'll probably get it cheaper than you would here.

I so badly wanted this game to be good. I loved Populous, and I've been vaguely following this for a while. On seeing it available for a mere £3.50 elsewhere, I thought, "This is gonna be a steal."

How wrong I was. And let me make this clear, a full asking price of £15 is an absolute, utter, complete rip-off.

What you are buying is a mobile game. This is not a PC game. Yes, they've TRIED to adapt it to the PC... The gems, which you would clearly pay money for on your mobile device, have alternative ways of being attained, through sacrificing followers, or doing voyages (puzzle missions). But you still have to sit around for hours on end for them to build things, checking frequently to collect items by tapping... Uh, CLICKING on them, forming the core function for why anything gets done.

I guess the premise of the game is cool, and definitely brought me to playing it. You drag land to make it suitable to be built on. Your people can only navigate certain terrain and rely on you to make a clear path.

But it reeks of mobile game syndrome. Almost every single action costs "belief" (energy), which recharges over real life time. This is only made worse by the fact that although you have an uncapped amount of belief, you still have to collect it from each individual household your people build, which DO have maximum caps, varying on the type of house. That means your early game houses, making maybe 70 belief per hour, max out at 40. You can see the problem here, if you want to make progress whilst doing other things.

And otherwise, I don't yet see any real reason to play. All you do is sculpt land to expand and repeat. There doesn't seem to be any real goal. The voyages (missions) are straightforward and irritating, especially when the final idiot villager you needed to reach the checkpoint decides to go back to the start because you were half a second too slow molding the land, meaning you have to wait (a significant amount of time in real life) for those villagers to respawn so you can complete the mission.

I will probably keep playing, for a little while. But honestly, even paying £3.50, this was a rip-off. You might as well just go play Tiny Tower. Or, if you want a really fun PC adapted mobile game, try New Star Soccer! This game has so much work to be done if it's to become a PC game.

EDIT: I've played this more to give it a better shot, and my only additional comment is, the path finding is so ♥♥♥♥ing awful, it makes the voyages (missions) impossible sometimes.

At the time of this review, Godus is basically just a freemium mobile game that has had the pay aspects very sloppily pulled out.

Nearly everything is timer based, which is aggravating to say the least. Sculpting burns through your "belief" resource like crazy bananas, so you get to spend a lot of time not playing the game while waiting for more belief to spawn. Of course you can spend gems on belief and other resources, but to do that you have to sacrifice your people to the pit of doom, and wait about an hour or so for them to respawn. Oh, and forget about dragging your followers from the far reaches of your civilization into the one and only pit of doom- IF the buggy controls dont end up guiding all your little people to some random spot on the map you didn't intend, they'll have routing issues and just get stuck until you kill them.
Having to wait an entire day for a farming colony to spawn a farmer is just frustrating as all get out. One would think with all the 'pay x gems now to do y' they would have included an option to fill a settlement with workers in exchange for gems but nope. You get to wait.
Voyages are frustrating annoying mini-games, which I honestly can't tell if they're broken or not for me as I completed one and then could no longer access the menu to it.
There is no easy in game option to restart the game fresh, you have to manually locate the save. A minor nuisance, but still.
The graphics could be better- I prefer to play most god-like games zoomed out for a better overview but it doesn't like to render that far out.
The unlock cards though gameplay mechanic seems straightforward but NOPE. You don't actually unlock the feature on the card until you put enough matching stickers on it- oh and you can use gems to buy more stickers.

I actually do enjoy the sculpting aspect, despite it's quite buggy nature. However having to wait for hours for enough belief to actually do it is annoying.

It's only playable if you only spend 15-20 minutes on it here and there, since the timers elapse in real time. That said, I'm glad I got it on sale for really cheap because it is NOT worth the 20+ dollars they're asking. It's still considered "early access" and it says only 52% complete so... here's hoping they fix it so it's more of a real game and not just a gutless imitation of a pay model. Until then, it's not worth more than 5 bucks.

If you're a Black and White fan, RUN.

The game is clearly geared towards tablets and mobile for starters. Which means it might be fun to play while you're at the doctors office, but if you're expecting any complex, challenging, exciting interactions you're out of luck. Basically all you do is drag around the landscape to make flat land so you're little followers can build cube houses automatically. The novelty of that wears off in about 20 minutes and there's NOTHING to do while they build except get stickers. You just sit there with your thumb up your ♥♥♥ watching a timer count down 3 minutes to build 1 house. What fun. Even if you wanted to continue sculpting you can't, because you need belief to do it, and no followers means no belief. It takes ages to generate belief too, I sure love waiting 10 minutes so I can finally drag the ground around a little bit more woo!

Even after you're far into the game it doesn't get much better you dont get to throw rocks, fireballs, trees or anything like that. Best thing you get is a meteor strike. The most insulting thing of all is these silly limitations put on you! You're a god for crying out loud. Want to build a town center? Nah, brah you need 50 premium gems. And all the waiting... waiting... waiting... Might as well be called waiting simulator. What fun does it add to make me wait 10 minutes to expand the terrain in a SINGLEPLAYER game? What does that add? Nothing... frustration is about it.

I bought this game a looonng time ago with early access, hoping it could be something great. They haven't done a whole lot since. They overhauled a boring beta to have a slicker interface and a happiness meter! Added a few tid bits for the late, late game. This is months, and months, we're talking about here. What the hell are you guys doing?

In summary this is one of those games that wants you to play for 10 minutes, leave it for 6 hours so you can play it for 10 minutes again. It's boring, repetitive and not very Godlike. All you do is wait, sculpt, build, wait, sculpt, and build. As a B&W fan, I feel abused. This isn't a God game, it's a sleep aid.

Repetitive and boring, if somewhat relaxing at the start. This is basically a free-to-play mobile game with some minor changes to accommodate the paying PC player.

Last year i had actually written a review for this game giving it a massve thumbs up. However the direction of development now means I am doing a complete 180.

Dont get this game at present. The game revolves around you playing god. A god that can sculpt the landscape, direct your people to build things, mine resources, breed, erect great temples and use your godly powers to sent great balls of fire and brimstone upon your enemies.

Sounds awesome right? Well it would be if not for the fact that the base of this game now has it foundations on the Mobile phone version, so huge F2P elements.

Anything you need to do requires a resource called belief, which is generated by your followers in their houses, which you have to wait for....up to 30 minutes in some cases. So build more houses, so you get more belief right?

Yeah but that would require an abundence of belief in the first place, which you dont have, to speed up building you need to direct followers to the area you want to build on which, you guessed it, costs belief.

Hey maybe take a ship sailing and play the mini game whilst you wat? No that requires followers in which you have to wait for.....yet more belief.

To be honest the whole premise of waiting to play is beyond belief.

Dont get this game. You will be sorry.

I will ammend this review as they make changes....if I can ever be bothered to to boot it up again.

If I'm a God, why do I have to wait days for things to happen?

I want to like this game. I also want to play it. But the game doesn't want me to play, it wants me to wait, and watch the timers. Thats not the game that was advertized. Its only 50% done, so there is still hope. but not much.

Pros:
Build your town
Guide your followers
Scultpt the landscape
Play cool sculpting senarios

Cons:
Construction is timer limited
Guiding your followers costs resources that are timer limited
Sulpting the landscape costs resources that are timer limited
The Senarios are timer gated, limiting the number of senarios you can complete at a time.
The currency used to speed up the game is timer limited and reduces generation of all other timer limited resources.

When I'm playing the game, I'd give it an 8/10 would recomend.

When I'm not playing the game but have it open, I'd give it a 0/10 would not recomend

This game had so much promise "reinvention of the god game" etc etc. As a initial backer of the game on kickstarter and played many hours of the early access to give feedback and relish in the devleopment process - I have been just terribly let down by Peter and his team at 22Cans. While he has reinvented the god game alright, he has done so with free to play mechanics that involve terrible terrible timers and obsticals that make the game NOT FUN. I sat througout early access giving the team the benefit ofthe doubt as the kickstarter community complained about the obvious free to play leanings and as everyone was ignored by 22Cans. They're doing what they want - which clearly is nothing like any of the fans who wanted a modern Populous, Powermonger, Black & White etc. If this is you, don't waste your time with this game. If you like free to play mobile games, pick this up for free on an iPad - but be warned of the bugs there.

A very dissapointed ex-fan of Peter.

Bought this game because i was a huge fan of Black&White. Its not black&white at all. Spend hours clicking on all the abodes to collect belief, that you'll spend in 2 minutes while you reshape a tiny portion of the landscape. The game knows this is the case, which is why the game itself recommends you constantly do other things when you run out of belief to do what you want.

You'll spend most of your time with upkeep after the storms start coming... and the devs act like thats a good thing, since you've run out of belief and cant do anything else.

Godus: 13 months later

Godus is a LOT better than it was when it was first made available on Steam, but it still has a long way to go, and I'm not sure it's going to survive the trip.

I will not expound on the soul-crushing gameplay issues that were rampant in version 1.x.x of the game, as many of them have been fixed. The issue now seems to be one of...waiting.

I have never seen a game that requires quite this much waiting. You will not notice it so much in the first 10 to 20 minutes of play, but as the hours go on, you will find yourself collecting your belief, sacrificing your followers for gems, sending out builders to contruct new buildings, sculpting a tiny piece of your land, then realizing you have 45-60 minutes (!!!) to wait until you can do anything else, because you need to wait for more followers to spawn, more belief to generate, and for those buildings to finish contruction. Once, the game told me I would have to wait over A DAY for another farmer to spawn.

In the developer commentary, they say that you should use this time to go "treasure hunting" or on voyages, but there is only one available (very short) voyage right now, and treasure hunting for stickers takes all of 5 minutes...if you have enough Belief to move the land around looking, and if you don't, you have to come back in a couple hours so it can generate.

Compound that with the fact that ore takes five real-time hours to mine, wheat takes one real-time hour to farm, and some buildings take upwards of 20 minutes to contruct, and that is AFTER the speed-build card has been unlocked. I wonder if by the time we reach the space age, the shuttle will take 10 real-time years to build! When it comes to belief, the larger buildings only generate it once every several hours. The smaller buildings make it faster, but they make so little that you end up waiting just as long for it to generate several times so you have enough to actually sculpt something. I often found myself doing everything I could, minimizing the game, then doing something else for an hour or two, just to re-open the game, do my "chores", and minimize it again.

If the ridiculous wait times were removed, I think Godus would be a lot more fun, but it would still be a very shallow game. It feels skinner box-ish, and there is a real lack of any need for strategic thought. It doesn't really matter where or how you build your settlements, where those wheat fields or mines go, or just how often you sacrifice followers, just as long as you have enough belief to place a swamp in the Astari camp so they all drown when they try to party.

Godus as it stands now is little more than a web-browser game that was obviously designed with a pay-to-not-wait mechanic in mind, not unlike Farmville. It's playable in its current state, but only for 15 minute windows among hours or days of waiting.

I didn't think that a game by Peter Molyneux could possibly deserve the poor reviews, so when Humble had the game on sale, I bought it to see for myself.

How wrong I was.

There are so many reviews summing up the poor aspects of the game, but overall - for me - the one thing that sticks out most is the fact that the game was unceremoniously dumped onto the PC market in its mobile app form. With the exception of buying items for real world money, there appears to be no difference between the two versions of the game - no thought has been given to the difference of the platforms or the gamers.

Certainly, the game is early access, and who knows, may actually improve if pigs start flying. There are many early access games that are less developed (apparently Godus is currently 51% complete), cheaper and still far superior than this.

For the person who brought us Populous, Fable and Black & White, this is not a game to be proud of.

Certainly not worth the £14.99 current cost and not even worth the £4.89 I paid.

LISTEN TO THE OTHER REVIEWS! This is a waste of money and time. This game plays like a mobile game and requires you to continually log in to do well. Buildings and upgrades are in real time and can take HOURS. Its entertaining for the first few minutes until buildings and upgrades start taking time and you run into this mobile game time funnel. Utter ♥♥♥♥...

New review since I can now play the game, after about a month of having it constantly crash on me.

This game is not good. It tries to be too many things at once: a modern version of Populous, a game that is playable both on mobile and on PC, and a challenging yet easy game.

It succeeds at nothing. The game is too hand holding at first, and becomes incredibly obtuse later. It is riddled with remains of mobile tropes like 'gems' which have a half-arsed implementation on PC: you get them for 'free', but they are both needed and drop too little to be of actual use.

Only get his on a deep sale like it recently had (I picked it up for €4), at least until the developers manage to make it better.

This game is designed to be played in sessions of about 5 minutes, on an iPad. Seriously, don't buy this game. It's crap.
