The Art of Godus/Making of Godus Book Update!

Posted by 22cans (Creator)

Hello Backers!

We recently sent out a message asking for feedback on our Making of/Art Book Reward. As previously mentioned, in our initial pitch we may have put forward a mixed message on the direction book by mentioning an art book in the Kickstarter pledge tiers and a ‘Making of Godus’ book in the detailed pledge image.

And so we set up a little questionnaire asking the relevant backers for their input on the Book Reward with two options listed. Would you prefer to see The Making of Godus or The Art of Godus?

*drum roll* .. And with 57.7% of the votes The Art of Godus has officially been chosen as the finalised reward.

Conor has been in touch with numerous printing companies and has been ordering samples in order to get a feel for how the book will look in it's finished form. He's currently heading up the Art Book production and should have a few sample pages ready to share soon. 

Along with the sample pages, we also publish a basic Art of Godus Book proposal that we will be working from.

      "Take a look at the Daily Dev Activity on the 22cans website" - Hasn't been updated since June 19th. Say it all really.

      It's coming up on six months since your last update, and we're coming up on two *years* overdue.

      You need to either deliver or refund.

      Has godus been cast as a flop yet.
      It's really a shame. You are behind schedule in everything.
      I have seen more complex games made in less time.
      If you can't deliver at least give us our money back.

      Where was this survey held? I clearly missed in.

      Now, I'm no game-developer but shouldn't these designs been done years ago? For the moment you have Konrad trying to bail you out, but he are years behind schedule from the moment he stepped in to the office.
      Add the story and content up to medieval times or so, apologize again a few times and be done with it.

      seriously, why from the art of godus >_> and only 50 people voted? not much interest to decide anymore i guess

    8. Akram Shehadi on

      Mixed messages? from Peter Molyneux and 22cans? naaaah... seriously?

      If they are barely starting to decide the type of book, I can't imagine when will those poor backers that would supposedly receive... let's see:

      - "...exclusive piece of hand engraved GODUS Titanium jewellery, hand made and beset with one sparkling real diamond."

      - "...a unique physical figurine of your character"

      - "...a visually stunning and beautifully-framed print of GODUS artwork"

      And my favorite...the "reward" for my level:

      - "... your own in-game pet or familiar (a mystical animal who’s unique to you)"

      Waiting for 22cans to declare this an official failure so I can get my refund.
