A beta version of Godus, an upcoming game for the Mac and PC by accomplished video game designer Peter Molyneux, is set to be released September 13th through Steam Early Access. The game, which is similar to Molyneux's early titles like Populous and Black and White, previously raised over £526,563 as a Kickstarter project late last year, well over its intended goal of £450,000.

GODUS empowers you in the role of a god, allowing you to sculpt every inch of a beautiful world that you look down upon, on which a population of followers settle and multiply. As you mould every aspect of your unique utopia, a civilization will blossom across your land and offer you their belief. The more followers that believe in you, the more powerful you will become.

The game also intertwines with Peter Molyneux's popular iOS title Curiosity, a social experiment that asked players to chip away at a giant cube to reveal the secret hidden inside. The person who removed the final cube won a "life changing" prize, which ended up being a grant of special powers within Godus for one year upon its release. Bryan Henderson of Edinburgh, who won, will be the game's sole digital god, earning a portion of all the game's incoming revenue.

22Cans is also planning to release an iOS version of Godus following its Mac and PC release.

You guys are lame...

"A study by MITI - Japan's equivalent of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) - concluded that 54% of the world's most important inventions were British. Of the rest, 25% were American and 5% Japanese."

So yeh...


We're lame?

Britain and Japan have both been civilizations for over 1000 years. America has been a separate entity for 237 years.

That means, in one fifth of the time, we've invented a quarter of the most important inventions. And among those, one of the biggest is basically computer networking. And let's not forget all of the advanced weaponry that helped to keep Britain free from the Germans and Japanese.

It'd be a more interesting—and accurate—comparison if the study had only included inventions since 1776. I think we might have also invented declaring independence from England and successfully defending that claim on the first shot, mate. That was an important one. ;)

So yeah. ;)

The Internet and World Wide Web are different though...

So unless someone can correct me, the internet was invented by the Americans. But the www was invented by an Englishman in Europe/England then implemented it using an American computer called NeXT


By a Brit in Switzerland.
