Godly: Reus Gets May Releus Date

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.

May 16th! Not in 2014, 2015, or 1657, either. This year. Initially, it’ll turn water into¬†wine essential resources for its population on Steam, GamersGate, GOG, and Desura. Abbey’s been developing the game between work and studies for quite some time, too, so this is a rather large milestone.

As for the game itself, it’s about using your three titans to shape the planet’s ecosystem – for instance, by filling the planet with a chewy, nougaty center of precious metals or turning barren wastelands into loamy blankets of green. However, your human subjects are inherently greedy, so it’s all about striking a balance. Your almighty hand must be helpful, but also firm and sometimes callous.

In other words, Reus’ cheery, colorful exterior belies a seemingly nuanced core. If we’re lucky, then, we’ll get the best of both worlds. Here’s hoping anyway, given that even the god of god games seems to only have a tenuous grip on the genre these days. Reus, if nothing else, represents something new and largely different, and for that it deserves our loudest crab snaps of adulation.
