    Looks interesting. It's about time Populous of old got re-worked and I like the art style and simple textures & models. Wouldn't pay for early beta access though, will definitely wait for reviews first... Love him or hate him, I'm glad to see Molyneux back on the scene.

    Video looks fairly true to the original Populous game play, although I have to admit it's a genre I never really got the hang of. Nice to see a Kickstarted video game pushing on towards completion though, must be a big relief to all the backers

    I used to enjoy Populous back in the Atari ST/Amiga days. Black & White and Dungeon Keeper were good fun too. Peter Molyneux and friends contributed an awful lot and fingers crossed they still have that magic.

    Does look interesting but for now going to hold off as was watching a YouTube vid from TotalBiscuit and he seems to like it, however he doesn't like the clicking of it.

    To expand the terrain you have to expand every level from the ground up, by clicking, there is no click and drag, just lots and lots and lots of clicking, he does say maybe there is a god power you get later in the game to resolve this, but at the start seems a bit soul destroying.

    For now will watch the development of it, see if they fix the clicking system, then will evaluate my purchase
