Trivia:

In July 1997, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, the Right Honourable Tony Blair, wrote an article in the Guardian newspaper entitled 'Britain can remake it'. In this article, Mr. Blair contended that "Innovative products are winning new markets for us. Nine out of ten Formula One cars are designed and built in Britain. Psion personal organisers, Bullfrog electronic games, the Duracell torches… they all demonstrate the breadth of British product design. These people are ambassadors for new Britain. They embody strong British characteristics as valuable to us today as they have ever been: know how, creativity, innovation, risk-taking, and most of all, originality."

The overview supplied from Bullfrog's website does quite a nice Stalinist rewrite of history - Populous was in fact the company's second game, the first was a "simplistic arcade style game" (as Bullfrog themselves might put it) called Fusion, which even Peter Molyneux later conceded was rubbish. The very first game they worked on, not as an original title, was Druid II: Enlightenment however.
