Version 2.2.1 Now Available to Download on PC & Mac

Posted by 22cans (Creator)

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been working on completely overhauling our save game system for Godus on both Steam and iOS. This will prevent players from losing their progress or running onto problems recovering their saves in future.

Today, we’re rolling out these fixes for all Godus players on PC and Mac, along with a few new bits of gameplay content too.

New Gift & Swampland!

We’ve also implemented a brand new Gift to help boost the Happiness level of your Followers – take a look at our totally tropical Tiki Torch!

If you take a look around your Homeworld, you’ll also find that there are a few swampy areas to contend with now.

That’s right, swamps are no longer the preserve of your godly abilities but now appear organically within your Homeworld, adding an additional layer of challenge when commanding your Followers to spread out and explore the land.

Changes in v2.2.1

Please find below the full list of changes and fixes found in Godus v2.2.1 for PC & Mac.

New content:

  • New Tiki Torch gift which can be placed and turned on and off by selecting,
  • Swamps added to home world
  • Swamp tutorial
  • New 5000 Belief card available in the Exchange


  • Save Game fixes to prevent crashing on recovering a save and to minimise save corruptions.
  • Build time for Voyages of Discovery Temple reduced.
  • General performance optimisation.

Please be aware that you may have to restart Steam in order to download the new version of Godus.

NOTE: If you have a bug to report or some feedback to submit please take a look at the Submitting Feedback and Bug Reports thread. Also, please be sure to take a look at the Known Issues thread for the latest information on issues the team are currently investigating. Thanks everyone!

As always, we would love to hear your feedback, so please feel free to speak up in our official forums, or if you’re feeling especially community-spirited then why not lend a hand expanding and refining the Godus wiki?

We are continuing to work on developing new content, features and functions for Godus and we look forward to updating you on what’s up next in our pipeline very soon. In the meantime, we thank you for your belief and patience.

      No, it's available for WIndows and OSX, get the acronyms straight! Alternatively, release a Linux build and you can just say PC.

      Is it Populus yet?

      I played the game a few weeks ago and listened to the commentary. I had a WTF moment when I heard the statement that the game is supposed to be frustrating, but then I thought to myself, okay, it makes some sense to have annoying elements which are later remedied. However, I realized the basic issues are still in place: if you fail hard in the exploration mode, by losing all your explorers, then you have no time sink between waiting for your faith to refill. The crystals are too valuable to waste on topping off the ship, too. Worse, we're penalized for not playing, because the enemy tribe doesn't register swamps in their town which would kill them off, unless you are playing; that resulted in my always coming back to the periphery of my civilization being depleted of followers. Seeing all that made me realize a game made to be annoying is just annoying, not clever.

      is anybody else experiancing massive lags and frozen sreens with this update? befor the game run smooth on my pc now it freezes every few secounds while playing. Its really desturbing

      I'll admit that when I saw the "As always, your feedback is welcome" part of this message, I spluttered a bit. If that's the case, why haven't you listened? I'll grant you that some minor gestures have been made, but when you pitched this game it was as the next Populous or Black and White, and what we've received at this point, almost 2 years after it was funded, is a really not very good, painful to play F2P mobile game.

      I suppose, to be fair, you simply say you love to -hear- our feedback, not that you'll actually spend any time acting on it, or implementing any of it.

      I'm find this game rather easy to resist at the moment. That's not a good sign.

      I am actually rather enjoying the PC version. I had to play through the pain of not having much belief for a long time but once I had killed off the Astari it all got much nicer. I think I will wait until you have expanded the world before I restart again though - unless you have added more expansion beacons to this release?

      Also, next time I am going to do it without ever going on those horrible voyages!

      Anyway, always nice to see progress being made - thanks for the update.

      Some info about Linux status would be nice...

      "Version 2.2.1 Now Available to Download on PC & Mac" Well isn't that just lovely ... for backers who own a PC or a Mac?

      Hi James, naturally occurring swamps are in addition to the Swamp god power, not a replacement of it. Apologies, that should have been clearer.

    11. James Clayton on

      OK, haven't played it yet, got to go back to work er... about five minutes ago actually.

      But, "swamps are no longer the preserve of your godly abilities"? Sorry, what? Are you saying they appear in the world *and* can be planted? Or have you taken away another power? Surely as the game progresses we're supposed to get more awesome abilities that make us feel more like all-powerful gods, not fewer?

    12. Chris Mead on

      Not sure I can face another restart for so little.

      @Kristian lol!

      @Ruudiluca: I'm sure they'll have more to report when they've added more microtransactions to the primary platform for the software...
