Project GODUS Funded

The Kickstarter Campaign for Project GODUS has successfully concluded, ultimately bringing in 526,563, comfortably exceeding the 450,000 goal for this god game from Peter Molyneux and 22cans, and just triggering the stretch goal for a Linux version, while falling short of the final milestone that would have triggered an Ouya version. Word is: "Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting GODUS. Our job is now to work on and complete GODUS, the game we've fallen in love with, and to make it the game you want to play."

Yeah, people seem to forget it got bad enough that Molyneux wasn't even allowed at events like E3 without PR handlers to keep him from promising all kinds of crazy shit. It's a wonder he never got hit with multiple class-action suits.

You mean like the Far Cry 3 E3 Demonstration? Or the original Alan Wake demonstrations? Or the tentacle monster from Half Life 2? Or ... hell I could go on all day.

Fair enough, but I'd counter that while individual elements got bumped out or left out for whatever reason, the shit that was supposed to be in Fable was something that even today couldn't be done. Permanent, long-term consequences to every important (and some unimportant) decisions you made.

Hell, google "Peter Molyneux Apologizes" and you'll find like half a dozen personal apologies for over-promising shit over and over and over again.
