Also during the address, Molyneux revealed that the Godus gameworld is the size of Jupiter. He said it would take the entirety of one's life to scroll from one edge of the world to the other.

Godus is a reinvention of Molyneux's classic god game Populous. It is in development at 22Cans for PC, Mac, and mobile devices, and will not require a constant Internet connection for its single-player mode.
