Topia World Builder coming to iOS from Populous developer

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Topia World Builder, a God game from developer Crescent Moon Games and Glenn Corpes, who worked on the original Populous at Bullfrog, will be available on the iTunes App Store this week.

A gameplay video of the world-simulation title shows off its touch controls, which allow you to mold the in-game world with your fingers — making rivers and bays, raising mountains from the ground and putting down grassland. In addition to the terrain-deformation mechanics, Topia includes a variety of animal species that you can bring into the world, and then watch them interact in the in-game ecosystem you've created.

Topia World Builder will launch tomorrow night on the App Store for $0.99.
