Black and White Hands-on
10:58 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Spank! recently posted a hands-on preview of the upcoming god game Black and White by Peter Molyneux. This preview discusses many of the games strengths, and potential weaknesses. In this unique offering, the moral choices that you make in respect to the game environment will actually alter the landscape and change the disposition of the citizens of the land. Here is a description of that aspect of the game in action:
Next up a villager at the local nursery told me a child was lost and needed finding. Now, Ive never been a hugely patient games player - just ask my Counter-Strike team - so, having had a little look around my beautiful green world without spotting any errant children, I decided the best course of action was to chuck a suitably-sized boulder at the nursery. It seemed logical to me at 1.30am: no nursery, no missing children. Oooooh, I got bad, real bad. Slowly the villagers started to act differently to me. My disembodied floating hand took on a nasty shade of sunburn, the music got scary and my whole world developed a distinctly sinister look. Time to be nice again...
A Mac version of Black and White has been discussed by several Lionhead staff members in the past; we can confirm that a Mac port is indeed in progress, but cannot reveal the developer or publisher at this time.
