Molyneux Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Curiosity Sequel

John Bedford (Modojo): The second experiment from Peter Molyneux's 22Cans studio has been announced. Titled GODUS, the game is a reinvention of Molyneux's classic god game Populous.

The team is seeking funding through Kickstarter for the title, with a goal of raising GBP450,000 (approx. $720,000) before the crowd-funding effort ends in 29 days. Here are the full details of the project direct from the Kickstarter page.

I think we need to see some of these kickstarter titles actually release and be successful for me personally to invest in it, and for people to really start to massively invest into titles and kickstarter to really become the future for developers and make publishers obsolete.

TitanUp4253d ago

a bunch are supposed to be released next year.

FordGTGuy4253d ago (Edited 4253d ago )

He blamed Microsoft for holding back his ideas and greatness before I wonder what he'll blame this time after he boasts features that'll never make it into the final game.

People who followed the release of the original Fable will know what I'm talking about.

I'm not the only one who has seen this:

Hope it doesnt get funded he has more then enough cash to fund his own games he is just taking money away from real indie devs. Curiosity sold 2million so they should be able to fund this on that alone plus he was a big wig at microsoft for years. Kickstarter is already attracting the wrong crowd who see it as free money for shame well was good while it lasted.

NYC_Gamer4253d ago

I agree,KS should only be used to fund real indie developers projects.

chasegarcia4253d ago (Edited 4253d ago )

Agree^ some people are abusing it. I think they allow it for publicity. It might bite them in the azz.

nofallouthero4253d ago

well he did work on black and white so it could be good

Legendary Game Maker Peter Molyneux Talks Regrets and What's Next

In his first major interview in over a year, Molyneux opens up about his legacy, his empathy for the 'No Man's Sky' team, and redefining himself.

solideagle2659d ago

great interview...i hope he comes back to console industry

Mystogan2659d ago

Bring him back for Fable 4

Kaneki-Ken2659d ago

Bring him to PlayStation and do a spiritual Successor to Fable. PlayStation will fund the game and give full creative control over the game.

XXanderXX2658d ago

only with the exception where he doesn't over sale and not deliver like he did with Fable 1-3

zuul90182659d ago

Yea he had part in some neat games, (fable, black and white) but i think all im gonna remember him for was his pre-fable 2 interview.

"You dont control the dog, the dog acts on its own." Feel like that was the most proud hes ever been about a feature in his game. "You dont control the dog" kinda funny

UltraNova2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Yeah the time where people got excited about Peter's promises is long long gone. He has to deliver...

badz1492659d ago

Knowing Molyneux, this talk about regrets might be another one of his promises he's not gonna fulfill.

XanderZane2658d ago (Edited 2658d ago )

I want a new Populus game for the new generation. Played that game to death on the Genesis. It's too bad that Peter's ambitions always seemed to exceed his final product. He always had big dreams though.

I miss this crazy fool. Microsoft could use a game developer like Molyneux again.

omegaheat2659d ago

Dude, you really should get a life. No matter what developer comes on board, you'll find some way to make it out as a bad thing. Save some of that surplus of criticism for things that really matter, you know things like Donald Trump.

S2Killinit2659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

Whaaa. Im just saying they dont show a lot of movement in terms of first party. If we all sit back and dont say nothing, it will continue to be that way.

Trekster_Gamer2659d ago

Yes like Sony could use free backwards compatibility the cheap bastards

ThePresentIsAgift2659d ago

That was hilarious BTW and I owned all Xbox Consoles/

Godmars2902659d ago

No, just need to loosen the reigns - a lot. Realize that not everything needs to be online so as to need a paying sub just to access.

rainslacker2659d ago


Actually, thinking on it, maybe you could name one high profile game designer that works for Microsoft?

Without a google search.

There's a reason that high profile game designers become high profile....it's usually because they make some rather iconic, impressive, or innovative games.

MS is literally in the shape they're in because of this guy. Especially regarding Kinect.

psuedo2659d ago

Dod that hurt pulling that out of your know where?

Godmars2902659d ago

So he wasn't in charge of Kinect game development at one point? Never delivered with Milo?
