In Reus, you control powerful giants that help you shape the planet to your will. You can create mountains and oceans, forests and more. Enrich your planet with plants, minerals and animal life.

Just been playing Reus on my surface pro 2 - what a delight that it is all finger friendly responding to pinch zoom and such. A great game.

Reus is a 2d side scrolling “godgame 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.

I also saw this game in many people's steam wishlist :). I'm holding a giveaway contest for the game so if you've been eyeing it you may win yourself a copy. Details will be at the end of the review.

You can find the review here:

I have games on Desura that allow me to download a DRM free installer after purchase. Is it the case of this game?

@CelineSSauve Hey! The Halloween mystery and treasures are indefinitely available. In general we don't like limited time gameplay content.

@Omahdon Apparently someone just bought Renowned Explorers specifically because of you doing the trailer voice-over.

With Halloween closing in, our bi-weekly update will be a special experiment. Check back tomorrow.
