Peter Molyneux’s Project Godus has just reached its required target of £450,000 on crowd-funding site Kickstarter.
The game, a return to Populous (at least in genre) for fledging studio 22cans, will now go ahead and be developed, with a goal to release in 2013.
I spoke to Peter a couple of weeks back, when he told me Kickstarter meant there was “no escape”.
“It’s just us as an indie and the fans,” he said. “However, we have to work harder and longer and be more decisive because of this.”
22cans had a live stream running in the lead up to the target goal, in which Molyneux promised to do the Gangnam Style dance – at which point the total dropped £5k. Over 4,000 people were watching the total creep up at the end tonight.
