With Populous, the God sim was created. Millions of gamers were converted. A new genre was born.

Now you have been challenged to achieve immortality in the first ever true 3D, real-time strategy game. Tame wildmen and train tribesmen in stunningly beautiful worlds. Make them worship the ground you walk on. Wield your earth shattering powers to wreak havoc and hold them under your command. Turn up the heat of battle with erupting volcanoes, or summon the skies to rain fire on your rivals. Spread plagues among non-believers or direct a tornado into the heart of enemy tribes.

But don't let the power go to your head: you're not a God...yet.
