GODUS Multiplayer Details

The Kickstarter Page for Project GODUS features a new video called "Designing GODUS with Peter & Jack #2," where Peter and Jack (we're all on a first name basis here) discuss multiplayer support in 22cans' upcoming god game (thanks IncGamers). This follows up on a previous update and video discussing the inspiration for the project, saying: "We sit down with Peter and Jack again, answering some of your questions to yesterday's video and set out what GODUS single and multiplayer will play like."

I hate myself for asking... but how is the cube game doing financially?

So far they haven't made a dime on it because they haven't turned the store on yet (at least last I heard.)

It seems to be very popular, judging by the downloads. Mankind really is made up of nothing but lemmings...

Nope. That's what I read in an RPS piece, so I have no idea if it's true, though I believe it was directly from Peter's mouth. Maybe I can find it again.

Curiosity is free, and you earn in game stuff with how many taps you do (personally haven't seen any pay stuff but haven't used it much).

Call me crazy, but if he's going to fund a studio, I'd assume he'd plan to have enough left over to fund a game (not counting that stupid cube one).


Sadly, no, Peter wasn't that smart. Apparently creating the new studio and building that retarded cube thing ate all his savings. (according to an interview I read a few days ago.)

Yeah Peter does get ahead of himself with what he wants to do and what can be done, but I've enjoyed the vast majority of the games he's made over the years.

Yeah, I mostly agree, although Fable III kind of sucked. But even when his games didn't work out (lookin' at you Black and White) they usually pushed the envelope. But I adored Syndicate, Magic Carpet, and Dungeon Keeper. Speaking of which, now that we've got an XCOM remake, it's time for a REAL Syndicate remake! Where's our Syndicate Kickstarter??!!

I think my gripe is I expect him to have this kind of money himself, and doing a KS for it seems very tacky.


It is wrong. He's got oodles of dough and can finance this easily. Would you really trust this guy not to blow a million of other people's money by being his usual flaky self? Of course he will. No sir, I don't like it.

There's some hints of sanity in the video. Some tiny hints but if he allows his sanity to take over maybe, just maybe, the Populous remake will make justice to the name.

Chris Roberts supposedly has 10 million from a private backer, Penny Arcade did a KS to get rid of ad's on their webpage, and what has Double Fine shown? I don't think it's tacky at all.

Yeah Peter does get ahead of himself with what he wants to do and what can be done, but I've enjoyed the vast majority of the games he's made over the years.

If you don't like it, don't give him any money.

Oh rest assured, I'm not.

Yeah, but eh, in the end if people want to pay money to him, that's their choice. I like that anyone can put something on KS. I'd hate for it to become a site where popular choice first has to dictate whether you are allowed to Kickstart something or not.

If you don't like it, don't give him any money.

My biggest worry is that he can't make a game for 450K (fuck, he wouldn't be able to make a game for ten times that), so this is going to go down into the dumps like Elite Dangerous will, and put a sour taste in a lot of people's mouths when two high profile projects crash and burn.

And molyneneyeu7euehuhss knows that he can't make this game for 450K, so I have no idea why he's deliberately trying to get people to fund a project that's almost certainly doomed to fail.
