    Sweet I really enjoyed From Dust, even with its clunkiness. A well polished god game would be amazing. Its to bad they are so few.

    SO far I am really disapointed by the graphics it cant even match 5+ year old from dust? Games like this need immersion. Blocky levels? You cant smooth them together??

    I like the concept, but visually they need to do more than just doubling the polygon count from Minecraft.

    So basically it's another remake of Populous. Which was also a Molyneux game.

    Love Populous, I still play it sometimes. This game looks like an interesting version and for $19.95 will be something to consider.

    The graphics are a bit clunky, but the original Populous is much worse. One of the charms of older games is that they use the best GPU ever made, your brain.

  8. I love new ideas. But terra-forming at free will...not so much.

    The graphics look like this game could have been in beta 6 years ago.

    Looks like a human, castle-less version of Castle Story Online.

    I'm really pissed off they didn't even match From Dust graphically, the makers of populous, it was their last god game
