The topic of this page has a wikia of its own: Populous Wiki.

Populous is an award-winning computer game designed by Peter Molyneux for Bullfrog, released originally for the Amiga in 1989. It is regarded by many as the first god game. It is the first game in the Populous series, preceding Populous II: Trials of the Olympian Gods and Populous: The Beginning.


In this game the player adopts the role of a deity and assumes the responsibility to shepherd people by direction, manipulation, and divine intervention. The player has the ability to shape the landscape and grow their civilization – and their divine power – with the overall aim of having their followers conquer an enemy force, which is led by an opposing deity.
