Guides on emulating older games

The Black & White Platinum Pack contains the original Black & White and its immediate offspring, the expansion game Creature Isle. Real-time strategy with a twist, Black & White challenges you to build and expand a godly empire. The “twist” is a creature, your creature, a minion who learns and grows, eventually becoming your primary force in the surrounding lands. The colours “black” and “white” indicate your ability to choose between styles of play. Teach your creature to love the inhabitants or terrorise them. Either will build belief, your source of power in the game’s land. You eventually face off against other gods and creatures, seeking to prove your superiority. The original Black & White starts with an infant creature and a single city of believers. Through a series of tutorial exercises, you learn how to interact with each by performing miracles and finishing tasks. Neighbouring gods and periodic trials test your creature’s education and combat skills. With sufficient education and power, the creature can dominate the entire land and its population.

Can this game be played locally as a LAN game or do you need to find a server online to play it?

Note: There is an EA logo on the B&W manual as well as the Feral logo. This is irrelevant because EA did not develop, publish, or distribute the Mac version that is uploaded here. They only published the PC version.
