Black & White is a creation of legendary Peter Molyneux. It is a combination of the best elements of strategy games and RPGs. The action takes us to the world of Eden, an island away from any civilization, having a differently-shaped terrain full of mountains, forests and so on. It is inhabited by people living in peace with each other and the nature. Alas, the balance is upset by the appearance of gods, causing each tribe to pursue other goals. For that reason, once peaceful peoples now wage war on each other just to satisfy the lust of their gods.

In the game, we assume the role of one of many gods. We will have to teach our worshippers, train them in combat and also train a huge creature, who will help us fight other tribes and rule over ours. We may become a good god, loved for his generosity and compassion, as well as an evil tyrant who will force his followers into obedience. The behavior of our creature also depends on our behavior. We may turn him into a monstrosity or a good pet. We will also be advised by conscience, resembled by angel and a devil, both having completely other opinions. Whether you choose good or evil, it is only up to you. Become a god and get to know the rich game story. Use powerful spells to defeat other gods and become the supreme god of the world.

  • New, unique story by Peter Molyneux.
  • Advices at any time, depending on the side you’re on.
  • Countless fight in which you’ll utilize a set of four tools.
  • A huge amount of spells, growing more powerful as you gather more worshippers.
