Despite a Messy Campaign, Molyneux's Godus Kickstarter Still Has a Chance

Project Godus

After a month-long campaign, 22 Cans' Project Godus Kickstarter will come to an end later this week. It still has a ways to go to ensure it receives anything at all through the crowdfunding site. However it turns out, it will serve as a fascinating example of the dos and don'ts of the service. From a vague initial pitch to any number of things hanging over the head of 22 Cans and its founder, Peter Molyneux, in particular, there are any number of factors that may prevent us from getting what now more than ever looks like a game I'd personally love to see get made.

With less than three days to go, it's far from a given that Molyneux's latest project -- the self-described reinvention of Populous -- will receive the funding it needs. The Kickstarter is seeking 450,000 GBP, the equivalent of about $731,000. As of this writing, it's raised roughly $647,092. Per Kickstarter rules, 22 Cans won't see any of the money that's been pledged unless its goal is reached by the deadline. It's a substantial sum that needs to be raised in the next few days, but it's not impossible; many Kickstarters see a rush of pledges as they approach their final hours. According to Kicktraq, a website that tracks Kickstarter pledges, the past few days have been some of Godus' best since it launched in November. Whether things pick up enough to hit the target by Friday is anyone's guess.
