Project Godulous: Reprisal Universe

Almost three years ago to the day, Reprisal appeared and I saw that it was good. Firmly in the terraforming tradition of God game Godfather Populous, Reprisal is a game of powers and control over tiny little warring tribes. The free version is still available to play and it may act as a perfect antidote for any poor souls inflicted with a severe case of…

Feature: Games In Their Earliest Stages

DevLog Watch: Super III, Prune, Book Of Dwarf, More

Last week I was in Switzerland on holiday, which meant I wrote a devlog watch but every update was about the mountains I hiked, the cowbells I heard, and the fresh baked bread I ate from my sunbaked patio. It was glorious. Can videogames compete? Probably not, but devlogs featuring alien platformers, nuclear strategy, puzzling trees and simulated dwarves give it a good try below.

I never play Populous anymore though, neither it nor its first sequel, so indie homage Reprisal is the closest I've been to…

The Little God That Could: Reprisal Gets Full Release

It's been ages since I assumed the elements-juggling, reality-bending powers of a cosmic deity prone to accidentally lighting his own fire-ant-sized followers on fire. And in the game. Reprisal - which Adam first discovered last year - has officially launched, and it hits many of the beats recent attempts on the god game throne like From Dust couldn't quite wrap their giant disembodied hands around. As…

Flattened Earth Society: Reprisal

I'm going to talk about an indie game called Reprisal, but first some theology. In the recent past, From Dust came out and it wasn’t Populous. It wasn’t even Populous with iffy controls, it steadfastly refused to be Populous at all despite being based around Godlike powers and terrain manipulation. Before that, Black and White came out and flirted with the idea of being Populous…
