From Dust - Next Generation God Game by Ubisoft

Whilst searching tthrough the God Game genre, I came across a soon to be released game, that followed a similar vein, although not directly showing a 'Diety' it does evoke the tribe and responsibility's of the what a God Game would include, as well as having some amazign visuals and rich concept art, portraying the relationship between Tribes & Nature.

Ubisoft released details on their upcoming God game (or “world simulation”), From Dust. Play with a world, its topology and elements. Hopefully, be good to your inhabitants. From Dust has been in development at Ubisoft Montpellier for the past couple of years. The visuals look pretty striking and interactive landscapes looks lush from up there. Take a few minutes to see the first tech demo video released by Ubisoft, from the link below.

Ubisoft notes some of the key features in From Dust:

■GROUND-BREAKING TECHNOLOGY – Behold the beauty of a primitive world, pulsing with life through the breath of a nature expressing its forces at its fullest.

■A WORLD YOU CAN SHAPE, A NATURE YOU MUST CONTROL – Beware the danger of a world constantly and dynamically changing under your command.

■A TRIBE YOU SHALL GUIDE – Control the destiny of a tribe struggling to survive and recover his ancestors lost knowledge and powers.

■A LEGENDARY DESIGNER – Original concept and creative direction by Eric Chahi, visionary creator of Out of this World / Another World

From Dust is estimated for a 2011 release by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 (XBLA), and PC.

Here are some pieces of Concept Art, as well as a Video showing the control you have in the game:
