Populous: The Beginning is an unique real-time strategy video game, mixed up with natural powers. Strike down your opponents not only with your tribe's army but with earthquakes, tornadoes and volcanoes! Play online now with thousands of players in the active community with this online-playable version!

The successor to Peter Molyneux's mythical Populous, the game is critically acclaimed for having far surpassed the original, which is regarded as a masterpiece for its time to begin with. Reviewers praised its beautiful 3D graphics, the complexity of high-level play, and the completely new style of game it introduced, which has not yet been correctly imitated by any following game. The game immediately developed a strong competitive scene which remains very active in 2014.

A thriving Populous village Populous: The Beginning adds a whole new element to strategy games, putting the player in control of the Shaman, an unit which can make use of devastating spells such as earthquakes, firestorms and tornadoes, yet can be quickly killed like any other unit, and which must battle with other Shamans first in order to do devastating damage, thus adding an action element to the game.

It is regarded as one of the best real-time strategy games of all time, which is proven by the fact that over a decade after its release the community is still very active, with a solid base of competitive players. As of 2014, there are hundreds of players active in the online multiplayer community.
