A 2d side scrolling god game that shares some similar concepts with one of my most favorite games of all time, Black and White 2. However, instead of having totally devout humans, in Reus, no matter how benevolent you are, greed may make them turn on you and each other. Such is human nature.
An Indie god game Review Developed by: Abbey Games
My village is still a baby~ (Restarted 5x)
NOTICE: Interview with one of the developers will be at the end of the review. Personally, I found the developers answers inspirational. Personally, it gave me the nudge I need to finally start working on my own indie game. I also found that it can be applied to life challenges.
Shoutout of Gratitude: I want to thank the developers of Reus for the interview. Thank you for giving this new blogger your time even though I knew you guys were probably having a very busy and hectic week since I contacted you guys around the time you just launched. I also want to say I’m so happy with all the positive feedbacks you have received and want to say this is one of my favorite games to play at the moment. Hugs to you all!
What got me interested: I am actually a huge fan of good games. I just absolutely love them! I like having the power over civilizations and taking care of them with all the kindness and love every benevolent god bestow upon their people. I also love to save the game, then start smiting left and right as I maniacally laugh in front of my computer which not only baffles those by me, but I was told it also scared them. As mentioned, I love Black and White 2, and I still believe to this day nothing can really compare to that game when it comes to the god game genre. I’ve been looking around the internet and waiting for a game that will even come close to BW2. Seems like my patience paid off with this game. It did not only gave me a BW2 nostalgia but it also gave me a whole new experience which I totally appreciate because as much as I love BW2, I still also yearn for something that’s different and can stand on its own. I personally think Reus has that capability.
