The interface takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it.. prepare to be addicted. :)

Except for the god damned *awful* save/load interface. I have a suspicion they trained a creature and had that create this part of the game. They also need an option to skip the dull training routine (just allowing you to get on with building the temple would be fine) when you restart/replay the game as that is terrible.

Could have been worse... at least we found them again after 90 minutes of messing around.

My buddy Torak is having waay too much fun with that game. So much so that it is overflowing into his livejournal and the very lives of everyone that reads it.

It is the main topic of conversation here too. My boyfriend and I were talking about it the majority of the time we were at the pub last night.. I'm sure if anyone overheard me talking about "smacking my cow" they probably thought I was insane.

You are a god and you rule your land and people, but you also rule a "creature" and train it as it grows up. Eventually the creature will become huge and its behavior will be shaped by how you treat it. Like if you beat it a lot, it will turn evil. There are various quests and tasks that you do, including battling other gods. The main focus is your creature, which do require a lot of attention. The gameplay is really quite amazing. I haven't been this impressed with a game for awhile. My only complaints are with some of the interface, which can be infuriatingly non-intuitive.

But I do love that game... hmm.. I think I may go play some more in a minute. :)

You all have gone insane!! Every last one of my friends has gone insane playing this game Black and White or whatever. I thought it was restricted to mainly my friends at work and maybe a few of my other geek friends I don't work with...but ACK...don't want to hear any more Black and White until I get to play it!! *giggle*
