Watch The Stupid Burn In Godus

Being a God is tough work. First you have to try your best to make sure people don't die, then you're clearing space for them to repopulate. It's like being the world's busiest omnipresent parent, and how do all your children repay you? With Atheism.

Hello, I'm finally back. I've been pretty ill the last month but now that I'm not as ill I can finally get back to producing videos for you to look at if you so wish. Being ill isn't very good but I’ll tell you something that’s quite good, Godus.

Well, from what I've played at least, as the Kickstarter project is in Beta with many of its features not yet in the game. To find out more about using your godly finger-poking powers for good and evil watch my video above.

Picked up Godus with some reviews calling it the spiritual successor to Black and White, which was PM's best game (and most fulfilled in terms of promises). For the first two hours, I was having fun. The game was interesting and enjoyable in terms of landscaping.

Then I realized that Godus was nothing more than a glorified Farmville, with houses that generate worship instead of cows to click on. That's pretty much all you do so far. Click on houses to generate worship/followers. Watch them grow. Then harvest again.

Oh, and there is likely to be a pay-to-play aspect of it in microtransactions. So, look forward to only being able to cast the "Settlement" miracle 3 times before you have to pay actual money to use the miracle.

Yup. It's that bad.

I already have buyers remorse. While I am fully aware that it's in the enigmatic-all-too-ubiquitous-these-days "alpha pre-release", it really doesn't seem like it can go anywhere from the place that it is at.

Kinda wish PM would just re-release B&W with updated graphics and nothing else changed.

Right now is getting through the stages of grief for being ripped off by someone I should've seen as a hack from a mile away.
