With great power comes great responsibility and with small price comes great value--combine these two and you’ll get a GOG.com exclusive Populous™: The Beginning, a 3D Strategy game with almighty strength, released for only $5.99 right here on GOG.com.
The third part in the series, the first one in full 3D, Populous: The Beginning places you in control of a female shaman and her tribe. You need to battle your way through 25 planets and defeat the rival Dakini, Chumara, and Matak tribes for dominion over the solar system. Grow in followers, grow in strength and unleash the earth-shattering powers to wreak havoc and control your tribesman. Build your forces, annihilate the non-believers, and finally become the ultimate almighty ruler of the Populous universe.
Execution of Populous: The Beginning is quite impressive: each scenario sports a different richly-detailed small world, and the engine accurately represents the fact that you are on a globe, with curved surfaces and an effective horizon. The creators of Populous and Dungeon Keeper packed some clever ideas, fun-to-play gameplay, 3D graphics, and sweet multiplayer into a perfect cure for gamers with a god complex. If you like real-time strategy games, this is one of the most innovative and well-designed you’ll be ever likely to play, especially when it’s only $5.99, available now on GOG.com
