Key features

The game, created by Eric Chahi, was developed and released by Ubisoft in 2011 for consoles like Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The game is often considered as the successor to the late eighties game Populous. The game develops it plot around mysterious being The Breath, which was called by the natives to return long-lost knowledge. The player takes control of the mouse cursor. It can influence different substances and elements like lava, earth or water. The player has the opportunity to help the natives overcome everyday problems, for example, with the search for totems or with the elimination of the consequences of the typhoon.

Developer’s return

The game originally supposed to be a real-time strategy and the return project for Eric Chahi to the company after a study break. The transformation of matter in the game is quite elaborated: lava can cool down to the state of stone, plants grow only on fertile soil, various weather conditions and cataclysms are simulated. The player controls a spherical cursor that is able to change matter and thereby help the natives. Structurally, the game consists of several missions that are linked together by a single story about a tribe of islanders and their quest for finding lost knowledge. The game has two modes: Story and Challenge mode.

A really fun and original game in every aspect. Once again proves the creativity and originality of the Ubisoft Montpellier Studio.

A nice Game for in between-well in my Case have played through ichs directly-addiction Potential available! E M P F E H L E N S W E R T? J A!

The top for the sand Castle strategy with a water flow, while playing with the fire. Unique gameplay. I didn't find anything equivalent.

The goal is to bring its people to the exit of the map playing with terraforming powers. The modelling of water and soil erosion are very well done.

Have you ever played at the seaside, built dams, kept the water as long as possible, made deviation, until the next wave came all over? You're going to find these good sensations here.

Actually a nicely made Game with an extraordinary Game idea, which I would definitely recommend. Due to the stupid Forced updates of this superfluous UPlay weakness, however, it is no longer playable, it crashes immediately after the Ubisoft intro.

A friendly game, we are easily charmed by this lush but unforgiving world! It will be blamed just the AI whose pathfinding is perfectible (humans often remain blocked for obscure reasons, or sometimes choose longer journeys than necessary) a very good experience!

By the creator of another world. We are entitled to a completely original ' material painting ' game + tactical aspect of RTS. The engine is not Super impressive visually but it is necessary to manipulate the material and water to understand its flexibility. Really bluing. On the other hand I hang no more than that to the concept and the history. Maybe later...

For a quick Play between through, the Game is ideal. If you would like to be created and revered Worlds, you will drive here richitg. However, the Degree of Difficulty could be tightened, because it was only the last one that got really interesting. Crashes I read about in the Forum, I didn't have a single one now. Please do not spend more than 5 Euros on it either. Definitely light Food But it doesn't want to be any more.

This Game is the Truth. As God, you decide on Life and Death. With Terraforming, you protect your Stam of Indigenous people from this truly dangerous World. It's really Fun to play that. BUT: You need Uplay to play this Game Otherwise you'll get the same Error message again and again: "Uplay Launcher doesn't work anymore" (Uplay is a Paartner from Ubisoft and they also Bring out DLC themselves) Here's the Side and still have fun while zooming: uplay.ubi.com (PS: Uplay is free there)
