Black & White is a revolutionary game and like no other game when originally released. In Black & White, the player takes on the role of a god. In the game, the user will be accompanied by a creature who helps the god perform various tasks and manage the people of your tribes.

The player has the capability of being a good or bad god, based upon the actions of the player or his creature. These actions make your people worship or fear you.

What makes this game different from other games is the AI (artificial intelligence) of your creature and its capability to learn from you and its surrounding environment. Many users find this aspect fun, but some find it frustrating to learn how to interact with the AI.
