Black & White combines elements of several different genres into one multifaceted real-time strategy game. The player becomes
an ethereal overseeing presence, a true god in the game world of Eden, who looks after the tribes of various villages. Each tribe
in Eden offers its spiritual power to the god it chooses to worship in the form of "prayer energy." It is this power gained from the
followers' belief which allows the player to perform miracles to influence the world of Black & White. When all is said and done, a
population of devoted worshippers is by far the most crucial resource for any deity.
Each god in Eden chooses a familiar, a creature that begins as a fairly normal animal but can grow into a giant, powerful beast.
Beginning gods can choose a tiger, a cow, or an ape, but other animals become available as the game moves on. Each creature
develops individually, learning new behaviors by watching the actions of its master and reacting to the treatment it receives.
Players can teach their great beasts to punish unworthy followers, help the tribe with magical gifts of food or wood, and defend
the land against rival gods and their equally dangerous familiars.
From the Manufacturer: Play the role of a deity in a land where the surroundings are yours to shape and its people are yours to
lord over. Be an evil, malevolent god and the natives will worship you with fear in their eyes. Play as a kind, benevolent god and
they will worship you with love in their hearts. Your actions decide whether you create a heaven or hell for your worshipers.
Then select a creature from the land to act as your representative in the world. Raise it to gigantic proportions and teach it to do
your bidding--whether the animal grows into an evil colossus of mass destruction or a kind and gentle giant is up to you. Progress
through the game's rich storyline performing powerful miracles to battle other deities and become the world's supreme god.
