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! ★★ ★★

Will Reprisal be released on Steam? I'm wondering if getting Steam keys will be possible if that happens.

bought this game now via =)

totally like it and finished campaign mode =)

.... BUT ....

because of the fact you can play most of the content 4 free
(whole campaign .. even skirmish)

i really hope there will be another content update for people who bought the game

maybe some special totems + missions cause there is not much to do after the campaign that you cant experience @ the free web version (yeah skirmish ... but this mode is also included @ free version ;) )

There is also the 'Challenge islands' that are unlocked when you complete the game, right click support, full screen options, offline game saves and a lot of updated code / bug fixes applied to the desktop version ... and you get higher bit-rate music ... and more tracks ... and a making of digital booklet :D

I do hope to add more challenges etc in the future, its finding time!

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
