The Gods Must Be Crazy

Game Information
Short Introduction: 
Clearly, life has to go. It's been messing up your godly Creation for far too long. The universe is in dire need of a good hard reboot. Throw meteors to wipe out all sentient life in the universe before each species has time to expand beyond control. Create solar flares to pause the growth of their populations while you plot their death. Don't let any of these pesky civilizations send colony ships to other planets!
Brief Play Description: 

You are the Flying Spaghetti Monster, busy killing every known species to restart creation in his noodly image.

The goal is to kill every human in the solar system, by wiping out every populated planet with meteors.

The humans will do whatever they can to survive, be it procreation, terraforming other planets and other sneaky tactics.

You can also create deadly solar flares from the stars in the solar systems, to destroy colony ships and keep the planets population from increasing.

If the humans are able to populate every planet in the solar system, they will head towards other stars and systems, which will result in your humiliating loss.

If you are able to annihilate every last human in the solar system, you will win and bask in the glory of pasta.

Installation Notes: 

The Gods Must Be Crazy requires the XNA Framework 4.0 to run. If you don't already have it, run xnafx40_redist to install it.

XNA may ask you to install the .NET Framework first, in which case run dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64 before running the XNA installer again.

Run setup.exe to install the game and the installation program will take it from there.
