Update 1.3 has been released for Godus’ ongoing beta, which adds the Bronze Age and significantly improves the game, according to designer Peter Molyneux.

The update improves the game’s flow, meaning there’s ”much less meaningless clicking,” adds new Bronze Age advances, and adds several new Resource and God cards to collect. According to developer 22cans, Godus is around 40 percent complete.
