Will we ever see the end of fantastic, affordable PC games? Will we ever break long enough from shopping for deals and bundles to actually play our purchases? When will our wallets know peace? Not anytime soon, thanks to latest from the peddlers at Humble Bundle, who today unveiled the Humble Indie Bundle X. And we barely had time to recover from the Steam Holiday Sale.
We're a terrible species. One moment we're happily enjoying the care and nurturing of a giant tree god; the next, without warning, someone suggests: "Guys! What if we killed everything?" And so begins a new era of violence and shouting. In 2D god game Reus it's your job to prod humanity in the direction of progress just enough that we don't succumb to our murderous instincts. Good luck with that.
Hypothetical: If you were a giant, ancient crab imbued with godlike powers, how would you respond to your followers taking up arms against their very creator? If you responded with "cake," sorry. If you responded with "pound a town-shaped crater where they used to live," congratulations! You're ready for Reus, the indie god game coming up from developer Abbey Games that has you keeping an eye on the affairs of mortals while crafting a world to your whim.
