Godhood is an old-school god game from the creators of Reus

Developed by Renowned Explorers and - more relevantly - Reus studio Abbey Games, Godhood is a game about what it says on the tin. In vaguely Populous-esque fashion, playing as an unseen deity, you're to lead your tribe to dominance through indirect means, poking, prodding and manipulating, but never outright telling them 'Go here, stab these guys', even when other gods start muscling in on…

Indie Legends 4 Bundle Includes Door Kickers, Skullgirls

I've grown immune to the draw of bundles as the number of them has increased, but the Indie Legends 4 Bundle has a good enough haul that it reminds of the early days of Humble. For €3.15 (around £2.62/$3.51) you get Viscera Cleanup Detail (with DLC), Door Kickers, Skullgirls, Sir, You Are Being Hunted, Reus, Lethal League, Party Hard, and Another World. I haven't played…

Feature: Age of Plunder

Hands On: Renowned Explorers

Renowned Explorers was like an oasis of calm and colour in the cavernous halls of Gamescom. It’s a game about travelling the world in search of impressive artifacts to show off at the World Expo, but rather than making the journey into a nightmare of scurvy and resource management, developers Abbey Games have opted for a sort of turn-based tactics adventure that combines Tintin, Indiana…

Humble Bundle X Offers 6 Games Wot Are Quite Good

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…

Reus And Renaissance Heroes Are Things You Can Play

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…

Feature: Flat Earth sim

Impressions: Reus

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…

Godly: Reus Gets May Releus Date

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…

Poly(theist) Thriller: More Godly Reus Footage

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…

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…

Delectable Deities: Reus Puts God Back In The God Game

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…
