Created in homage to Populous, Reprisal lets you take control of a tribe, guiding them, building land and making them grow in number. Using special totem powers you can control nature itself unleashing its full fury on anyone that stands in your way. But be warned, other tribes may not take too kindly to your intentions and will put up a fight! Desktop edition includes: Enhanced full stereo chip tunes to nod along too, Unlock-able challenge islands, Offline local storage and Enhanced full screen display features! It also includes a full standalone PC installer and Mac App version. Includes 'The Making of Reprisal', a 38 page digital book charting the highs and lows of over a years development! ★★ ★★

Also, it is on Steam Greenlight, so definitely give it a big fat "yes" so we can have it there too.

Hello, will there be an update soon, there doesn't seem to be any content yet that isn't in the free version? Maybe sets of themed levels like you get to later on in the first Populous. Like candy or electronic worlds.

The new game is called Battle Keep which is going to be a multi player boom-em-up! We are working hard on getting this finished and is top of our list at the moment. It's been a long development process! More news hopefully soon ...

If you didn't enjoy Populous in the first place then you won't be enjoying this either.

-Lot's of green

-Clunky, bad controls
-Hard to see where are you placing things
-You wether like or hate the art style
