Default Topia: Age of Creation by Crescent Moon and the co creator of Populous!

Hey all,
Glenn Corpes (Creator of Ground Effect and Co Creator of Populous) and I are doing a little experiment together on this idea for a world
sim, with creature and plant growing. You shape the world with your fingers and watch things grow, trying to protect your herd. I don't have any firm release dates or anything like that, its more of an experiment right now.
Will keep you updated with more images/vids as it progresses.
Ideas and suggestions would be cool too, just to hear your thoughts.
-Josh

Sounds interesting. Is it going to be along the lines of something like the ngmoco freemuim game. It would be cool to have something along the lines of black and white maybe.

Here's the TA WWDC hands on video:

It's a shame they didn't get to film the version I have running here now. So much cooler

More screenshots and videos coming soon.

If you think Populous was about Magic and Shamen you are thinking of the third game, Populous The Beginning, which was cool but was more of an RTS with direct control. The first two games which were more about effecting the outcome via godlike powers, most of which transformed the landscape.

In this respect Topia owes more to the original Populous than the Populous III The beginning. The player is God or the force of nature... More detail coming soon.

Looks a lot like a Jurassic Park demo I used to play... Sounds good to me!
