This Thursday we delve into the ubiquitous and divine type of games, with the release of Populous designed by the famous Peter Molyneux.
We present you Populous, the foray for the popular “god-sim” trilogy and a solid base for future Peter Molyneux games in that genre. You play as an omnipresent deity in a celestial game of conquest against other gods. Each one of you start with a single human in the middle of nowhere. As a supernatural power, you can lower and raise land as you wish, through these various terraforming activities you will have to nurture this one man into a powerful civilization capable of giving birth to noble heroes. Once the leader of your followers becomes a champion, you can make him engage in a holy war with the heretics. Use your godly powers to wreck epic mayhem upon your enemies, burn them, drown them, and make them suffer. But be wary that other gods have the same tools available to their disposal, so be aggressive and remember that confrontation is the only way to win. The final outcome is all that matters in this god vs god game of world domination. In the end there’s only 500 more worlds to conquer ;)
