[Happy Birthday!] Populous

Hello old games lovers,

God games became popular in the 90s with games such as Actraiser, Creator, Dungeon Keeper and Black & White , but the first title that can be described as a “god game” (not counting the forefather Utopia on the Intellivision) was released today in 1989 and it was Populous, that has just turned 30. It’s one of the best selling PC games of all time and it did very well even on other platforms even though games like this find their best terrain on a PC.

Populous received several sequels, the last one being Populous: The Beginning in 1998. After this game the series is dormant. I sincerely hope that someone out there could resurrect a game like this because it was great fun bach in the 90s and is absolutely fun even today. I’m lucky to have my own SNES version of the game so I can pop it in anytime and explore my power as a God…
