"You were once a powerful leader of a distant tribe with the ability to harness power totems of nature. With these omnipotent powers you guided them.
Three neighbouring tribes who are at war have taken control, scattering your people and totems across distant lands. You must now guide them to become a powerful tribe once again, collecting your totems and overthrowing those who stand in your way.
Begin your Reprisal to reclaim your history …"
Created in homage to Populous, Reprisal lets you take control of a tribe, guiding them, building land and making them grow in number.
Using special totem powers you can control nature itself unleashing its full fury on anyone that stands in your way. But be warned, other tribes may not take too kindly to your intentions and will put up a fight!
Reprisal's universe currently spans over 30 island campaigns pitting you against 3 other tribes - each with their own aggression traits, 15 totem powers, 8 full length chip tunes by Eric Skiff and 4 terrain types.

"Its chunky, and fashionable, pixel visuals are augmented with an attractive, tilt-shifted depth of field effect that gives the game a unique look, while the cheerful tutorial leads you through the game's territory-conquering gameplay with easy charm."
"When graphic-designers meet game-design – this can be a very fruitful combination. The game Reprisal is a good evidence. Artwork and in game-graphic of Reprisal is one of the most clean and charming pixelartwork, that came within the last years – playing in the same league as Sword and Sworcery or Fez."
“Electrolyte has released the public beta of their Populous-inspired strategy title, Reprisal, which we have found to be absolutely stunning.”
Indie Game Magazine
“The retro-chic pixelated look is lovely, and the music suits the style perfectly. The pixel-men are utterly adorable, and the menu and screen transitions are all nice and slick.”
“ Reprisal has officially launched, and it hits many of the beats recent attempts on the god game throne like From Dust couldn’t quite wrap their giant disembodied hands around. ”
Rock Paper Shotgun
“In this pixelated delight, you’ll take on the role of an omnipotent deity who must command his people to victory or risk turning into a figment of history’s imagination”
“This Free Game Takes Populous And Gives It a Sworcery Makeover”
