The Ballads Of Reemus 2 Sings For Its Supper

By John Walker on September 26th, 2013.

I am concerned you won’t remember the very splendid The Ballads Of Reemus. A point and click adventure created by indie developer Zeebarf (Jay Ziebarth), it was a genuinely great and very funny game, bursting with detail and care. Reemus is an exterminator in a world where insects are a lot bigger than him, last time battling an infestation of killer bedbugs.

Way back in 2007, when the world was still a baby, we mentioned the peculiar, gruesome Flash game, The Visitor. Playing as an alien worm-like creature, you had to eat, mutate and mutilate your way through some simple point-and-click challenges. At the time I said that there was a larger project in the works, and now there’s some evidence of it. The Visitor: Massacre At Camp Happy. It’s a genre change for the worm, now a third-person top-down mutilate-em-up, as you chomp your way through a campsite. The new trailer is below, and it’s well worth watching until the people start popping.
