Millennia: Altered Destinies is a space strategy game designed by Ian Bird (the creator of Deuteros and Millennium 2.2), developed and published by Take-Two in 1995.
The plot of the game is brilliant. Your enemy is an evil alien race called Microids. To beat them you must travel back in time 10,000 years and - like a god - take care of 4 different races so that they grow, develop and become powerful civilizations. You will communicate with the 4 races (Reptoids, Slothoids, Entomons, and Piscines) using a "seed" and you will need to guide them, protect them if necessary, help them grow so that they are eventually able to colonize other planets.
This way you will change the timeline - and you will be able to monitor the changes happened to the history using your computer. If you succeed, the Microids will be defeated and the 4 races will also help you going back to your time repairing your ship's components.
The game didn't have a huge success and some reviews were negative due to some bugs. Despite this, Millennia is really a unique game with an amazing plot and very different mechanics. If you love the idea of time manipulation, you cannot miss it.
