You certainly achieved to recreate the mood.

I must have an ancient Sculptris installer somewhere under the dust of 
my archives. I shall have a look. Blender is still (and since many many 
years) on my ToDo list :-/  Silo, which I have, may do something 
interesting but it is not specialised in that direction. However, I 
should have a more thorough look when I get the time.

I find Terragen a bit disappointing (at least, the ancient version I 
possess); I shall have look at Gaea.
