Populous The Beginning
Populous: The Beginning (PS1 Classic)
Populous--in which you play god to a tribe of war-like savages--has been around for donkey's years, and has gained a reputation for being a classic of the god-game genre. But have you ever wondered exactly how you, as the player, became a god? Well, with Populous:The Beginning, you're about to find out. This follow-up puts you in the position of the tribe's shaman--with the ability to wield god-like, but not actually godly, powers--as your people begin their ascent to dominance and you begin your apotheosis.
Build your community, your religion, and your warriors, and lead them on a battle to rule planet after planet. Sit above each world--graphically accentuated by a curved landscape and small figures--and direct each of your tribe members in worship and war. Populous: The Beginning lets you control the elements and its peoples in a fight to become a god.
