Just when we think we can't be amazed by any more screen shots or footage of this title, Lionhead releases more promo material from their upcoming title Black & White and blows us away all over again. Black & White is not your typical run-of-the-mill game -- made by the creator of Populous, it is a completely new take on the god-game genre and has more features than can be listed here. Some of the more impressive aspects include a scalable graphics engine, impressive AI for creatures that grow and mimic your behavior, and a spells system that involves learning complex mouse movements.

GameStar, a German mag that seems to get all of the exclusives, has received some great video footage of the game in action. This movie is on their latest CD-ROM, but in case you can't obtain a copy, GamesWeb has the first of two movies available to download. It's a hefty download, at 45MB, and the voice-overs are in German. The characters in the game do speak English, though, and usually aren't hard to make out. If you have the bandwidth, we recommend viewing it, as this video really shows off much of the gameplay for Black & White.

GameSpot has also scored nine new screen shots of the game with some very interesting new creatures, well worth checking out.

Creator Peter Molyneux has said before that he wants to bring Black & White to the Mac OS; While nothing official has been announced yet, we're confident he will follow through. The game is set to be released for the PC in early November.
