Black & White 2, the sequel to the open-ended god game, Black & White, attempts to offer more focused gameplay and larger scale. The player assumes yet again the role of a God and chooses if he will be Good, Evil or something in between. As a deity that interferes directly with mortal affairs, the player will help his followers, the Greeks, survive and prosper in a mythical land. A good god will improve the city of his followers and eventually attract the inhabitants of neighbouring hamlets, be they neutral or even hostile. An evil god will recruit armies and conquer them. The player once again has an animal avatar of his choice (between Lion, Ape, Wolf and Cow) which can be trained or left to its own devices. Its A.I. is much more advanced now and revolves around "lessons" learned. Each action it considers to do can be encouraged or discouraged by the player (by slapping or petting) so that a creature does something always/frequently, occasionally, rarely or never. The Creature can harvest, build, entertain, fight, specialize in one of these fields or just wander aimlessly, eat rocks and trees, gag and poop randomly. Depending on its alignment it will also eat or help villagers accordingly. The divine being can also summon Miracles powered, as always, by faith. The ultimate goal is defeating the ruthless Aztecs by conquering or befriending the other two races (Norse and Japanese). The player also discovers three kinds of scrolls in the game. Gold ones are those that advance the plot, Silver ones are optional quests granting Tribute points which can be invested in buying new features and Bronze ones are tutorial scrolls. (MobyGames)

The DVD also includes the Battle of the Gods expansion pack in which you fight for dominance against a rival god, raise a tortoise or a tiger as your Creature and strike awe into the hearts of mortals with four additional miracles. It contains version 1.0 of the game.

The DVD has been split into two disc images for convenience. The first is a Install Disc image that is an image of the game DVD without the large SafeDisc file that the game looks for to play. The second disc image is used to create a Play Disc that contains only the (invisible) SafeDisc file. To play the game after it is installed, burn a single layer DVD from the Play Disc image and mount the DVD. The first time you load the game it will invite you to update to v. 1.0.1. The update only updates the game and not the expansion.

You can avoid burning a Play Disc if you do not update the game to v. 1.0.1 and apply the NoDVD patch (DL #9). The patch does not work on v. 1.0.1 of Black & White 2 although it will work on Battle of the Gods as the expansion is still at v. 1.0.

Downloads 1 - 4 are the parts of a zipped archive of the Install Disc image.

Downloads 5 - 7 are the parts of a zipped archive of the Play Disc image.

Download 8 is version 1.0.1 copy of Black & White 2.app. It is provided here for a future date when the Feral update server no longer works. To install it, control click the Black & White 2 Loader application, and replace Black & White 2 in Contents/Resources by the copy in this download.

Download 9 is a NoDVD patch of v. 1.0 of the base game and expansion.
