Molyneux's Godus Kickstarter reaches funding goal

With just two days to spare, stretch goals detailed

Peter Molyneux and 22Cans' Kicksterter fund for Godus has reached its £450,000 goal with two days to spare.


At the time of writing, 14,704 backers have pledged £455,950 to game, which promises to be an "innovative reinvention of Populous".

New stretch goals for the project have now also been announced. The developer is promising "three additional single and multiplayer game modes" if it can reach the £460k mark.

At £475k, the game will get "a very deep social and competitive feature" that'll allow you "the choice of starting your own religion or joining an existing one".

£485k pledged will allow the developer to draft in the help of James Leach, Bafta award winning writer of Black & White, Populous: The Beginning, Dungeon Keeper, Fable and Theme Hospital, to write the story for Godus.

Molyneux will add "multiplayer Co-Op and Possission Mode" and "first-person world crafting" at the £500k milestone, and for £550k he'll throw in Linux and OUYA console support.

Check out the official Stretch Goals page for a more detailed brief of each goal.

Molyneux also released a new concept video yesterday, December 18.
