Abbey Games have sent word that their astonishing-looking side-scrolling god-game, Reus, now has some gameplay footage to explain what’s afoot. In the game you play a planet, on which lives a number of giants, which you control. Via this gigantic creatures you try to make life good for the tiny humans that on the world. But there’s a balance to maintain: the greed of the little people is also your greatest peril. Lead designer Adriaan Jansen explains it better than I can in the video, anyway, so you owe it to yourself – and your fantasies of being a sentient planet – to take a look.
The game is due for release in the “second quarter” of this year.
Looks fascinating. Can’t wait to get my hands on this.
