Sculpt A World. Develop a Civilisation. Wield Awesome Power.
Godus empowers you with the power of a God, the aim of your powers to be used to guide your people from the Primitive Age through time all the way to the Space Age. As you go through time you gain various powers which you can use to aid your people as well as smite and protect them from the people of other Gods.

The game starts with you controlling only two Followers. Here you must clear the rock that they mine to provide them with room to build the first Abode in game, this provides you with the first Technology Card of the game in which your Follower's begin to believe in a higher power. This will then unlock the Scrapbook in which all your collected Cards will be placed. After this give your people a name by going into Settings, Options and then Game Options.
This initial part of the game provides you with no faith from Abodes until you gain the Construction card unlocking it with Resource Chests allowing Followers to build more permanent Abodes. The Population Milestones at this early stage provide you with Land Expansion Cards giving you more land for you followers to expand into. Eventually you will reach a Shrine of Power giving you the Totem Power meaning you can summon people to you draining them of their free will.
Slowly your sculpting powers will evolve moving from clicking and dragging layers to double clicking to sculpt the land and along the top of our screen 'Prayers' from you people will appear showing you what they wish from you.
The Mainland, it's Temples and SettlementsEdit
Eventually your Followers will reach the mainland, allowing an vast amount more land for you to sculpt and for your Followers to dwell within. Here the game gains its first hazard to your people Wolves which you will need to protect your people from.
The mainland also provides a more Chests for you to uncovered to work towards unlocking more Technology Cards as well s giving you access to the Mount of the Gods, the Temple of Multiplayer and the Temple of Fertility all of which have to be rebuilt by your Followers. The Temple of Fertility will increase birth rates for your people, the other two giving you the ability to fight other players or AI in game to gain new cards to work towards new technologies. The Mount of the Gods also provides more God Cards and Technology Cards if you play through it.
Once the main land is reached you no longer receive expansion cards and have to now instruct your Followers to rebuild Shrines of Expansion dotted around the map increasing the land you own.
Once you have developed far enough you will gain the Settlements card and once unlocked it will allow you to build your on Settlements. These initially cost increasing amount of Faith and are then replaced by a cost of Gems and so mining becomes even more important to provide Settlements. These allow your houses to become two-stories instead of one and roads at constructed between Abodes. Village life then develops with people wandering around your towns.
To rename them click onto 'Town,' rename it and press enter. As you go along you will find numerous Shrines of Power which proved more God Powers for you and your Abodes once new Technologies are acquired will become bigger.
The Discovery of Farming and StormsEdit
First of all the Population Milestones will be replaced with Farming Ones, these increasing as your Farmers bring wheat from fields to the village squares your Settlements. Farmers can be spawned from Settlements if they are empty plots within its range for them to go and build fields in. After initially building them Farmers will automatically spawn to fill the fields to maximum capacity.
Weather also begins in the world once Farming begins, this damages Abodes that are not within Settlements and you as a God have to instruct your people to leave their homes and repair them. As yet they do not repair their homes automatically.
As yet there are no more developments in Godus that allow you to advance any further. Updates to come soon.
