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?
