Currently in development at Toybox, and headed by Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada, the god-game-style sim allows players to create a cube-shaped world that will become home to various lifeforms. Players can transform the world by adjusting the terrain and weather to influence the evolution of the creatures, from single-celled organisms to dinosaurs. The video is fresh from this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
