Last year, Peter Molyneux left Microsoft and Lionhead Studios to form his own indie studio. Their first game was more of a social experiment called Curiosity that had players working together to reveal what was inside a cube knowing full well that only one person could win. The legendary creator’s next game, Godus, will be a bit more familiar.
22cans announced today that Godus will be entering a paid public beta on September 13. It will be available through the Steam Early Access program so those who buy it can help shape the game’s development as it nears completion. Of course, those who contributed £15 or more to the Kickstarter campaign will get into the beta for free.
Before the beta launches, the team at 22cans have released a trailer to give you a look at the game:
God games aren’t really in vogue anymore, but the Godus Kickstarter proved that people still want to toy with the lives of their digital citizens. Godus seems to deliver that gameplay in spades and it could very well catapult the genre to notoriety once again.
