DeNA and 22cans Launch New Godlike Game Godus for the App Store
DeNA, a global leader in developing and publishing mobile games, today announced the launch of Godus, an eye-catching reimagining of the god game developed by the genre’s creator Peter Molyneux and his team at the 22cans game studio.
Available now on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Godus allows the player to play as god, giving them the role of an omnipotent deity, devoutly worshiped by their followers and in complete command of the fate of their people.
“In Godus your hands will sculpt the mountains and carve rivers. Your touch will create pastures for your people. You will be loved by tiny worshipers that need your help to grow and your direction to progress through the ages of civilization. Power comes to you through influence, and your miracles guide the forces of nature. You must decide whether to use such awesome power for good or ill. As you progress through the game you will find history hidden in the land through mysterious artefacts that uncover the true story behind your Followers. By journeying to far off lands to complete quests, you will bring back powerful abilities for your ever-gracious people. I’m fascinated to see how players wield such powers on mobile,” describes Peter Molyneux, game designer and founder of 22cans.
Godus on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch will evolve over time. Future updates will put more powers in the hands of its players where the outcomes will be as unpredictable as they are thrilling. Moving forward, Godus will connect gamers to a seemingly endless world where they will clash with rival gods, compete in live challenges, and unlock surprising new abilities to advance their primitive population to modernity.
“Peter Molyneux is the pioneer of developing immersive god games, and Godus is a direct reflection of his passion and creativity,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “By bringing Godus to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, DeNA is looking forward to introducing the god game genre to a new generation of players. The artificial intelligence on display within the game is especially impressive as everything the player sculpts in the game’s environment directly affects how the followers react and respond.”
Godus is available for free from the App Store.
