Godus the new Populus

This game is looking good, but still needs more pledges on Kickstarter:
Project GODUS by 22cans — Kickstarter

The brain child of Peter Molyneux creator of the original Populus game.

Target has almost been reached with 48 hours to go.

If the pledges reach ?550k they will make a version for Linux and Ouya.

I watched the video's...I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out what the game is about, a Sim game?

It's a real-time strategy and god game.

The more your people like you the more power you attain.

You can use your power for positive or negative effects, and play against other gods and their little people.

it is "THE" God sim game!
I played Populous back in HighSchool on the SuperNintendo.
Its fun but I've got to say... sim & strategy games are pretty slow paced.
If you have the patience its very rewarding.

I'm not loving the cartoony look, but the functionality looks amazing!
I was never a minecraft fan, mostly because of the graphics.

The best part is the price.

The game will be downloadable through Steam Early Access for PC Windows and Mac for $19.99 / £14.99 / €18.99.

It was never going to be an immensely detailed game visually, but it's made by quite a small team of about 22 people, compared to 200 or so for some games. At least they have priced it fairly.

But, they claim that the world works in a realistic way, e.g. the water flows.

But, I quite like the look of the terrain, looks like rice terraces: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:T...a_denoised.jpg

Yeah, transforming the terrain and watching the physics work is a really cool idea.
I can't wait to see some of the worlds people make for their civilization.
If you think about it, this is what Strategy games have been missing.
Build your civilization and literally customize the environment around them.
