Peter Molyneux, that man responsible for the Fable series and countless others, has a new game out on iOS today called Godus. In typical Molyneux fashion, he is hyping it up by calling it the most amazing project he has ever worked on. Yup, we’ve heard that one somewhere before I think…
The game has you playing as a god who has complete control of the game world and all of its inhabitants, allowing you to literally create a world. As the game goes on you will become more powerful, and similar to the Fable series, you have the option to use the power for good or bad.
Peter Molyneux said the following in a statement:
“I’m fascinated to see how players wield such powers on mobile. [It will] put more powers in the hands of its players where the outcomes will be as unpredictable as they are thrilling.”
Considering Molyneux is a pro for hyping up his own games that end up being disappointing as a result, I doubt Godus is going to be anything that will change the name of the game. What it will be instead, i’m sure, is a really solid game that will have no shortage of the usual Molyneux charm. The guy may not live up to his own words, but he rarely fails at delivering something that’s still a lot of fun.
