No absolutely not. We are gamers at 22cans, we love depth as much as we love innovation. We will be playing the game with you during our Alpha and Beta stages, so if anyone gives us feedback we will look at that. But we're not making a dumbed down game. The PC (Windows) version will be hands down the most beautiful!!
You will be able to get an in-game pet or familiar after Kickstarter has finished, but you won't be able to get the one that is specifically listed as a reward for BENEFACTORS. This one is only for people who joined us in our GODUS journey from the very beginning, BENEFACTOR and all the reward tiers above it, will get this reward.
Right now we are compiling a list of all the digital distribution channels that we want to use. But the answer is simple; you will be able to play the singleplayer experience of Godus without needing to go online; you can play it while on a plane or when you're in a cave. No internet connection required to play the game in singleplayer. An online connection is required for online multiplayer and potentially some additional features but the singleplayer campaign does not require you to be online in order to be able to play.
The deities you will battle against in the game are reminiscent of Populous. These will vary in intelligence and challenge. You will find that no matter what your skill level you will be challenged. Multiplayer will offer a deep and competitive design along with ranked matchmaking so that no matter how hardcore you are, there will be a game for you.
You can summon God powers in the game to help sculpt your world, but what's more exciting is how you will use god powers to destroy the worlds and populations of others. This means that just as an enemy gods followers are about to reach the settlements of my followers, I can tear the ground apart beneath their feet and as I see the enemy's population growing I can fling a meteor down from the sky to demolish their following. God powers are a key strategic element of GODUS and so being involved in the creation of one of these is a big part of the game.
The ASSOCIATE tier with the special digital edition also includes an additional downloadable copy (standard edition) for a platform of your choice. Keep in mind that the special edition includes a an exclusive Kickstarter level and you get an unlock code for an exclusive GODUS god power.
