Not one, but two Godus updates!

Posted by 22cans (Creator)

Good news, everybody! Today we're releasing not one but two updates:

  • Firstly, we're releasing v. onto the main branch of Steam (at last!).

  • Secondly, we're releasing v2.0.5.165 on to the Opt-In branch.

For people that are completely new to v2.0.5, follow this link to find out what's new and even find a guide to the new Settlement Mechanics.

New Developer Build

The new Opt-In build will officially be labelled as v2.0.5.165 in the Options screen, this update is primarily a small bug fix that will squish a couple pesky bugs. For information on how to access the opt-in developer builds, please follow this link.

Please find below the change list for the v2.05.165 update. As always, If you find any new bugs or issues please be sure to send a report to or and please feel free to discuss features for future updates on our forum.


  • Speed up button in the Voyage of Discovery missions has been temporarily disabled until the feature can be properly implemented.

  • Timers will only appear over building site when you have selected them.

  • Storm Chests should spawn in your area of influence.

  • Shrines will now only buff abodes.

  • Trees will no longer show buffs over field.

Known Issues:

For the full list of known issues feel free to read through our Known Issues thread.

  • Maximum number of Monuments that can be placed is 36.

    When you get to a certain point in the game, you will start to notice that you can't place any more Monuments and that it will still cost you Belief.

New Video Update From Our Design Team

We also grabbed some time with Peter and Jack earlier today to talk about the design process behind Godus (as well as all of Peter's previous games) and respond to some of the most recent comments from the community.

Check it out to discover fresh details about what we've currently got in production, some of the upcoming content that will soon be playable and what the future holds in store for Godus.

Quite exciting, we are getting closer to a major update where new features will be released! That's all for now, rest assured we'll keep you posted of all the latest developments right over on our official blog.

      Don't worry, we've not forgotten about releasing Godus for Linux platforms - we'll be focusing on a Linux release once we're further ahead with the development of the game for Windows and iOS so that the port doesn't lengthen the game's development time even further.

      come on to post in support of your vision for the game.

      keep going forward, have faith in what you are doing.

      I am mainly a pc player and am not too focused on the mobile version but if that is what you focus on at the moment then give it a 100% of yourself because you want to do that and then focus on the pc.
      Once again thank you and will be trying out the update to see how its changed over last few months , look forward to see how it changes in the future as well.

      Sadly no Linux build and still no "non steam" version.

      I just want to let you know PM, and 22 cans, that I shall never support any future games you touch, or have any input into, whatever future guise you go under. We the KS backers have been mislead, badly treated, in many regards, but the very recent "Total and Utter silence" was the straw that broke the camels back for me. There is absolutely no excuse, in the total amateurish, disregard, that you have held, us the backers in. In short I feel your project, is a cancer upon KS in general, to the detriment of genuine projects

      You still have not managed to fix the exit game hang.

      Your link is broken! (Settlement mechanics)

      I there a way to unsubscribe from these updates so they won't clog my Kickstarter inbox anymore and frustrate me each time I do my 'click, ctrl+f, "Linux"' routine?

    8. Wei-ju Wu on

      Wondering about the Linux build, too.

    9. Jeff

      How do we "opt in" to the newest version? My opt in to beta is grayed out.

      Great update, especially the video. Thanks, guys!

      http://wym-1400778352648/ is probably the worst link ever. ;) (It's at the top, and you claim it leads to talking about settlements.)

      But what about Linux build?

      Hmmmm, interesting there's no mention of the recently, albeit limited ( as only NZ ), release of Godus for iOS ( or is it hidden in the video update? ).
