Populous, the original “god game,” is a true gaming classic. Designed by Mr. Peter Molyneux (who, reminder, will be joining us on Spke TV to provide analysis during E3), it was simple and to the point — you’ve got a civilisation of people. Sheperd them as you will.
Remember life before email? Like when people wrote letters? On paper? Kotaku reader Matthew does. Because during the early 1990s, he was a little kid writing them to Nintendo.
Much more than the creator of fable, Lionhead’s Peter Molyneux was behind everything from classic god game Populous to the light-hearted simulator Theme Park. These achievements and more will be honored at the Game Developers Choice Awards during GDC 2011.
