Manuel Kerssemakers of Abbey Games has informed us about the release date of its upcoming God game, Reus. According to the team, Reus will become available on May 16th for the PC on Steam, GOG.com, Gamersgate and Desura. Furthermore, a new trailer has been released for Reus that can be viewed below.
Reus is a 2D god game in which you take control of nature through the hands of mighty giants, in which players possess all imaginable powers over nature. Among them terrascaping, creation of life, control of weather and genetic manipulation. There is only one thing on the planet that you do not control and that is mankind, with all their virtues and and all their vices. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to maintain a balance in which man is not overpowered by nature, and nature does not fall to man’s greed.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
