This bundle from EA Games includes Lionhead Studios' innovative real-time strategy "God" game, Black & White (2001), and its only official expansion pack, Black & White: Creature Isle (2002).
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 that allows the player to perform miracles to influence the world of Black & White. When all is said and done, a population of devoted worshipers is by far the most crucial resource for any deity.
Creature Isle is the expansion pack for Black & White. Developed in concordance with community feedback and fan suggestions, the add-on strives to leave the versatile, balanced structure of the original game intact while improving and enhancing some of the more popular aspects of play. While "prayer power" may still be a god's most important source of influence, the emphasis of this release is less on village management and more on creature development.
