Humble Bundle X Offers 6 Games Wot Are Quite Good

By Graham Smith on January 8th, 2014.

The RPS chatroom, earlier.

It’s almost hard to believe there was a time when we weren’t being constantly bombarded with cheap games, but it’s true. When I was a lad, I had to save up for two months, walk miles through snow to the nearest PC World, and turn my coins over for a game that probably wouldn’t even work. Now every hobo with a bindle is buying bundles of games for only a single week’s pocket money.

Humble Bundle X is the tenth bundle in the “main” series of Humble Bundles, and it contains To The Moon, Reus, Papa & Yo, Surgeon Simulator 2013, Bit.Trip Runner 2 and Joe Danger 2: The Movie. Which is a better, more interesting selection of games than I’ve seen in a bundle in a while. I’ve written more about each of them below.

Reus And Renaissance Heroes Are Things You Can Play

By Nathan Grayson on May 18th, 2013.

I think they missed a big opportunity in choosing not to call the game's resources 'Reus Pieces'.

Hey, kid. Yeah, I’m talkin’ to you. You wanna buy some- oh jeez, shush! Police and/or an out-of-touch politician! OK, phew. They’ve passed now. Anyway, might I interest you in some videogames? Oh, don’t worry: they’re real. Fresh out of the oven too, if you know what I mean. Heh. What’ve I got? You’re in luck today, kid. Yes indeed. Ever wonder what it’d feel like to be god - and also a planet, and also some manner of crab giant? Well then, Reus might just float your boat, if you know what I mean. Heh. No good? Brain too rotten from your “Call of Honorfield” murder machines? Hm, then how about Renaissance Heroes? It’s got all of the guns and none of the plausibility! Go to beauteous portions of 16th century Renaissance Europe and then blow them up! That sort of thing. Oh, you want trailers? Mr high-roller, huh? Fine, fine. Go past the break and they’re all yours. If you know what I mean. Heh.

Impressions: Reus

By Alec Meer on May 8th, 2013.

God game! God game! GOD GAME! It’s been too long. We’ve been so hungry. Now Abbey Games’ Reus is almost here, being all godly, being all gorgeous and being all oddball too. I’ve been playing preview code for Abbey Games’ forthcoming world-fiddler (which comes out in just over a week), and thought I’d share a few initial thoughts ahead of a full review once the game’s out.

Godly: Reus Gets May Releus Date

By Nathan Grayson on April 18th, 2013.

Don't you just hate it when you get clouds in your craggy back spines? I know I do.

I know I may look like a stunningly handsome, impossibly well-put-together game journo, but in my most sacred heart of hearts, I’ve always felt more like an Earth-punching crab god. Those megaton claws and beady, all-seeing eyes are pieces of my soul I’ve never been able to fully embrace. So I was ecstatic to hear that Reus would allow me to finally take a sideways walk on the crab side’s sidewalk, even though that’s really, really hard to say multiple times in a row. Oh, and I guess it also looks like an utterly magnificent god game, a rare breed in these dark modern days. Release details and a new trailer are both after the break.

Poly(theist) Thriller: More Godly Reus Footage

By Craig Pearson on March 15th, 2013.


Previous adventures in Reus coverage have given Jim and I lots to be excited about, alongside a smidgeon of confusion. The striking god game’s more delicate mechanics aren’t immediately apparent. Big things make the world, yes, but then what happens? Well Dutch developers Abbey Games are doing a series of looks at just how well a giant crab, a wooden monster, and a sad looking bi-pedal mountain can rule. It’s all becoming much more apparent.

Plan It, Earth: Reus Gameplay Footage

By Jim Rossignol on February 8th, 2013.


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.

Delectable Deities: Reus Puts God Back In The God Game

By Craig Pearson on January 15th, 2013.

Other titles for this included 'Good God' and 'Reus Sex'. Also: STARING EYES!
Hallelujah! Just look at Reus, the prettiest game I’ve seen allllll year. I’d probably be willing to make that statement in February, btw. Come March I’ll reevaluate. Reus is a God game where you play a huge God, hunkered down over the world like a child over his toys, plucking at the malleable world and moulding it. The trailer is below, and I insist you watch it right away.
