Gameinvest announced today that it's currently developing World of Zellians, a strategic life simulation game where players must create, manage and grow a prosperous new civilization while caring for the well-being of the community.
The game will be released for multiple platforms, including the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC.
“The concept of creating a balanced society in World of Zellians is truly engaging and challenging, and we are designing this experience to be fun and accessible for all audiences – from casual to core gamers,” said Gameinvest founder and CEO Paulo Gomes.
“As the ruler of this society, players will be responsible for developing the community as well as providing a positive influence in the world – creating a very challenging and interactive gaming experience.”
In World of Zellians, players will develop and manage a civilization of villagers called Zellians. As the ruler over the Zellian planet, players must manage a “Maslow’s Pyramid” hierarchy of Zellian needs, and help evolve the primitive tribe of Zellians into a self-sustaining and prosperous urban society.
Players will develop the society by building streets, farms, ranches, watermills, and more. In addition, gamers can also assign in-game “Disciples” for the recurring tasks like planting corn, watering fruit trees, and managing the marketplace for Zellians to prosper.
Players will be charged with protecting the Zellian society from an evil god called Zorm. The Zellians live in darkness and fear of Zorm, and gamers must provide a positive force that brings hope and happiness to the Zellian world. There are many “areas of influence” in the Zellian world that are controlled by Zorm, and players must take control of all these areas and increase their influence over the Zellians in order to succeed in the game. Engage in challenging levels of gameplay to create a balanced and thriving society of Zellians.
World of Zellians will be available for the PlayStation 3 this Fall.

Sounds like something I'd be interested in. Gonna keep an eye on this one.

Sounds similar to Civ and Sim city mixed in with an angry eviil god. We'll see what it can bring to the table.

I really like games like these. Hopefully Gameinvest will use the full power of the PS3 and 360 and push the genre to the limits.

They won't push the system. they are going to keep them the same low standards as all the other dev's. You can even tell by the way it even going to the wii. It might be ok, but no powers really being push.

Sounds a bit like Populous, so it's definitely worth keeping an eye on. :-) Any game with even a hint of the old "Bullfrog" magic would be worth buying.

Sounds like Black And White mixed with Sim City (with a dash of Spore) to me. But, I think I'll be checking it out.

Blah blah blah - who cares if it's a "knockoff" of previous games... seriously, who gives a crap. If its good ill be buying it either way. When was the last time you saw Sim City on the PS3 people? Yes - im directing that to all the idiots that happen to be complaining and missing the fact that IT HASNT BEEN ANNOUCED, and it PROBEBLY NEVER WILL BE.
