Description
Planitia is a unique, fast-playing real-time strategy game based on classic "god games". In Planitia, you shepherd your villagers, helping them grow and give you mana. But you are not the only god in this world, and conflict is inevitable! Once you have enough mana, you can use your god powers to help your villagers further by blessing their land or healing them, or you can SMITE THE HEATHEN UNBELIEVERS with lightning, earthquakes, meteors and volcanoes! You can also convert your villagers to soldiers to directly attack the enemy or fend off their attack. The final game will include four-player multiplayer as well as a single-player campaign. There is only one true god...is it you?

You can download the current version and try it out from here (currently Windows only):

@GDSRedRain Yea, I forgot, Mega Lo Mania + Populous could work too. Still the whole tech tree building stuff.

All people around the world are brothers and sisters. Create anything about it! :)

Looks like a merging of two old classics - 'Populous' and 'Mega lo Mania'. Could be interesting. Need to work on the graphics for it to attract thew crowds though. I mean, I'm aware that not every good looking game is playable but with today's tech you could make this look and play very well.

@ViridianGames Yes. I think if somehow you can combind elements of both. It would look much more interesting then a "populous clone" and you could have alot to stand on to claim a new style for yourself. Since you have all these people running around anyways. Maybe you could add a "class" system. So you have Mana and then you have "Tech Level" which depending how you assigned your population, could open certain "Skill Tree" abilities. This could help in turn for Multiplayer if player A goes one route and player B goes another. (Example. Lets say a tech tree is Defense against nature. In the past, Humans had to protect themselves from wraith of gods. Lightning pole would absorb and prevent god lightning strikes to your population) You get the idea. That could expand this game alot and give it more depth too. God powers alone wont help vs certain tech paths that a user chooses for its population.

Cool. I loved playing Populous (on the Sega Master System and later on PC). Good luck with finishing this. Will check out the current version.
