"I am proud and delighted that the beta version Godus will be available for download on 13th September 2013," Peter Molyneux said in the announcement, ordering the date that way because he's British. "For a long time I'Godus been excited with how the game is evolving, I already feel there is nothing in the world like GODUS. This is the type of game I have dreamt of making since first getting into the industry; having people play the beta and give us valuable feedback while doing so, makes that dream a reality."
