The player takes on the guise of a god, ruling over an island populated by various tribes. The player's control over the island is manifested in the Hand, an animated on-screen hand which can pick up people or objects, throw things, 'tap' buildings to wake their occupants, and many other things. Use of the keyboard and buttons in the game is purposely low. The core of the gameplay is the player's Creature — a pet of sorts that can be trained to do almost anything, thanks to the game's complex AI. This Creature is trained by being placed on a leash while the player demonstrates the action the Creature is to learn using the Hand. With time and repetition, it will be able to do things on its own, to act in the player's place. At the centre of the player's empire is the Temple, the building at which tribesfolk worship, the Creature sleeps, and statistics, help, and options are available
