Peter Molyneux, the video game legend says that the time is right for smartphone users to play God (metaphorically speaking). He has started the GODUS Project, where players get to control the world via supernatural means as Gods. While Bryan Henderson is that lucky winner kid of Curiosity Contest, who will work on Godus.
The legendary hero of video gaming fame, Peter Molyneux is ready to roll out his next big thing. After hooking up with a Japanese company he came up with his GODUS project. According to Wired, Molyneux has been renowned since the 80s for his creative skills pertaining to video games. The computer game designer has likened the experience of making these exciting display-worthy gizmos, meant for teenagers and young adults, as comparable to cinematography. His latest venture, titled GODUS can be played on smart mobile phones and you can make changes through swipes and briefly touching the screen. The liberating and exhilarating feeling of godliness can give gamers an adrenaline rush.
Anticipation regarding playing the game definitely has the crowd on the edge of their seats. The new game is said to be so hyper-realistic that it puts the rest of the high resolution games to shame. The landscape is luscious and the graphics are gorgeous. When the wars and the morals are decided in this game it gives one an aura of total control. All barriers between self and technology are broken in case of GODUS. Molyneux was responsible for 22 Cans, a game that he previously created. Then there was his Curiosity App which had a record amount of people playing it in order to get to the jackpot.
A kid by the name of Bryan Henderson won the prize today and he will feature in the GODUS project. He is one lucky teenager alright since he will play the role of God in the next logical game. And the strange thing is he had just registered for the game an hour before winning the jackpot. The game that Molyneux is to let loose upon the world is totally different from the previous fare. For one thing, it has flair and flamboyance. The grandiosity of playing God (although on a gaming level of course) has the equivalence of allowing everything to happen all at the same time, which is what life is essentially all about. Life is full of surprises and shocks. And it is this unpredictability that makes life so beautiful.
GODUS will be taking shape soon. Till the day of the launch all the gaming geeks can do is try not to bite their fingernails in anticipatory anxiety!
