We reported a few times in the past that Peter Molyneux’s studios 22Cans, the folks responsibly for the Curiosity game, happen to be working on a new game called Godus. This particular game is sort of a mix between Populous and Dungeon Keeper with 3D visuals to round everything off.
Players will be playing as a god-type deity who will be will be shaping their kingdom and lands, while engaging into rather deep multiplayer combat gameplay that is more in the style of Dungeon Keeper but against rival gods (other players). The game’s development is coming along just fine and it still has a way to go before it is done.
However news today is that 22Cans has signed a partnership deal with DeNA to have the company publish their game when it is done. This means it will arrive under the Mobage brand which is DeNA’s social gaming platform. While this will help with social features and the multiplayer aspects, this also means it will be a free-to-play game. It also means that there will also be optional IAPs in Godus although we are not exactly sure right now what those will be.
As for when this game will be released, there is no set release date as of yet.
