Populous kicked major ass.

Hope this goes through :D

Only thing that makes me sad about this is that Maia probably isn't going to get funded now :/

Seriously this has got to be one of the more interesting projects on kickstarter right now and heavily related.

Squilookle:
Jeez Molyneux- leave Kickstarter to those that actually need the damn thing.

I'm surprised this sentiment hasn't gained more traction.

It have 3 days left but the Molineux Proyect is for December 21, so one can fund Maia FIRST and then gather money for Godus. Since Maia is Dungeon Keeper + Dwarf Fortress + Theme Hospital i would say that my hopes are on that game and not Godus. The game needs 16K more to meet the deadline, if we can get the same miracle that happened to Tim Schafer when he got almost a million in 2 days then Maia could make it alive.

And then Total Biscuit featured it on Youtube and the project gained nearly 20k overnight :p

It's actually going to make it :D

Edit: Made it !

Populous really was fantastic. I just really think Molyneux has lost whatever it is he had back then.

I don't think that he ever had it, really.

Many of these classic legendary developers, like Molyneux, Will Wright, Sid Meyer, John Carmack, etc, were never particlarly talented either about understanding what gamers want, or about designing a good program, but when computers and gaming were still new, they just happened to be the first ones to come up with basic self-evident genre ideas, that others would have soon came up with anyways.

You really should take Sid Meier out of this statement. He's one of the most talented game developers ever.
