Populous

As a Divine Being you have a group of followers from whom you derive your power. The more followers you have and the greater their achievements, the more power you wield. Unfortunately, there is another group of people who follow a different deity. Since there's barely enough room in the world for your own magnificence, two won't do. You must rid the world of the opposition. To do this, you will use your great power to move earth and your devout followers to crush the misguided.
Developed by:
Bullfrog
Founded in 1987 by Les Edgar and Peter Molyneux, Bullfrog was created as a small group of like-minded game enthusiasts aiming to produce original computer games that offered something a little more cerebral and challenging than many of the simplistic arcade style games available at the time. The studio was acquired by Electronic Arts, Bullfrog's publisher in January 1995.

No longer abandonware

What does it mean ? This game is being actively sold again.
Thanks to success of abandonware pages and interest in old games some game development companies (or what was left of them) sold rights to old titles to companies like Steam or GOG,
which are porting old games to new platforms and selling them again. Thats why - for this game - you won't find link to download anymore.
