Populous strategy

"Populous" is a video game that is considered a pioneer of the God simulation genre. Developed by Bullfrog Productions and released in 1989, it allows players to take on the role of a deity. They manipulate landscapes to help their followers evolve and fight against opposing deities. Players use divine powers to alter the terrain, unleash disasters, and support their followers as they attempt to subjugate opposing races. The game was revolutionary for its time, combining strategic planning with dynamic, changing gameplay.
