Come through and check out this video of Topia: Age of Creation – a new landscape-morphing mobile game from one of the guys behind Populous.

PocketGamer reports Topia was first shown at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, and has evolved from a landscaping tech demo into something approaching a finished game.

Players use their fingers to re-shape the landscape around them – somewhat like the recent From Dust – to herd animals. The game is expected to release for iPad in northern autumn.

Creator Glenn Corpes served at Bullfrog before it was acquired by EA, and continued on at the publisher in senior development roles. He’s been indie since 1999, and has one game – Ground Effect – already available on the App Store.
