series developer Lionhead.

Wonderland's staff was previously involved in the creation of the Fable
series and Lionhead's god games Black & White

, developed by current Lionhead designer Peter Molyneux.
Ngmoco has not yet announced a release date for GodFinger
, but notes that the game is "rapidly approaching its App Store debut."
