One of our major goals with Godus is to connect players from all walks of life and of different gaming backgrounds together. The principle way we want to do this is in Godus is with Hubworld… but we’re a canny bunch (even if we do say so ourselves) and that’s not the only trick up our sleeves.
If you take a close look at the row of social media icons at the top of our website[www.22cans.com], you’ll notice a new addition on the right-hand side…
This is all thanks to our fantastic friends over at Gamepedia[www.gamepedia.com] who host what is now the official, definitive Godus wiki[godus.gamepedia.com]!
Of course, wikis are only as good as their content and that content needs to be kept up to date… and that’s where you come in.
We’re on the cusp of releasing the biggest and bestest update for Godus yet – the Settlements revamp we’ve been coyly talking about on our blog and in the forums for the last month or two – and on its release, a lot of the articles on that wiki will be rendered as little more than historical curiosities, relics of a bygone era when the game was in its infancy.
So, we would like you – our passionate, knowledgeable community – to assist us in bring the Godus wiki up to date. Not just for Godus on PC either, but also for the mobile version too.
We will be scouring the wiki on a regular basis and those who contribute the most interesting, informative and helpful articles will receive signed Godus merchandise, like the kind you see below:
If you think your particular wiki contribution is crying out for our attention, then get in touch! Drop us line via Community@22cans.com and we’ll take a look and see if it’s truly prize-worthy (chances are, it will be – we’re a soft touch like that).
If you’ve never edited a wiki before, don’t be shy! You can visit the Gamepedia Help Wiki[i1.wp.com], a great resource for both new editors and even experienced editors looking to hone their skills. You can check out the pages for Basic Editing[help.gamepedia.com] and Formatting[help.gamepedia.com] to get started today. You can also get in touch with the Gamepedia staff through their IRC Channel[help.gamepedia.com] or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s Peter’s desire to create the most cooperative, collaborative and communicative group of players for any of his games yet, regardless of platform, so you can expect to see further initiatives like this in the future.
New forums and Facebook for Godus on mobile
Facebook page update for Godus on PC/Mac & mobile devices
We’re looking forward to the worldwide release of Godus on iOS – we’re so close now we can smell our servers sweating with anticipation – and to support the forthcoming launch, you’ll also notice a change to our Facebook pages. In future, our 22cans Facebook page will be the home of the PC, Mac and eventually Linux versions of the game, as well as for any company announcements. Meanwhile, the Godus Facebook page will be the home of mobile version. This is to allow for any differences between the two versions as we continue to develop the game for both PC and mobile devices and also help prevent confusion as to what version we’re talking about when we’re providing tech support or sharing new videos and screenshots.
That’s it for now – we’d like to close by thanking Ben Robinson and Benjamin Tarsa of Gamepedia for all their help with the Godus wiki and to say we’re very much looking forward to seeing all your wiki contributions!
