The land is Eden and the setting is one of beauty and peace. Eight tribes exist in harmony, working the land, fishing the sea and building homes and farming animals. The only aspect that is missing and longed for is a God.

You enter the game in a time of distress and perform a miracle for the villagers that makes you the God that they have wanted for so long. You gain the worship of a tribe; you are the most precious thing in their life.

The game consists of varying tasks and challenges. For example; how to deal with thieves taking your tribe's livestock and finding the sick tribesman lost in the woods and healing him. Can you outwit the gambler on the beach? Your decisions will have an affect on your tribe and productivity.

Your moral code is another useful tool as you decide whether to take the time consuming process of healing the sick or killing them quick. However, killing is not always the answer and the game is rarely as clear-cut as Black and White.
