Plan It, Earth: Reus Gameplay Footage

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.

    This game looks quite interesting and looks good for a game done by students. I wonder how deep the game mechanics go though and how diverse the planets and gameplay options can be.

    Finally, a game with a name unpronounceable to non-Dutchies. I hope the expansion is called “Reus: Grotten & Greppels”.

      Yeah, I was planning to post a translation of the word for them foreigners, but let’s not.

      Game looks cool, at least, the gameplay part. I’m not sure I like the art. Then again, it is a pretty small indie dev making it, so I shouldn’t complain.

        And I was wondering where the heck that accent came from. However, pronouncing Reus is not that difficult. Don’t know about Grotten & Greppels, though ;)

      As a Finn, I’m fairly confident that I can nail that pronounciation.

    Really liking the look of this. I particularly like the idea of the city you build turning on you, that’s always a cool moment.

    I wish it didn’t have that now-token app-store aesthetic and touch-screeny interface, but it does look interesting.

    Even though it’s really a giant crab or something, that screenie always looks like a giant zombie anime girl with big hair hiding behind a hill to me.
