After following Abbey Games' promising Reus for a while now, it's great to hear that the 2D god game has secured a not-too-distant release date and a fair few launch platforms. Come May 16, 2013, it will be accessible from platforms like Steam, GOG.com, Desura, and GamersGate.
Reus centers around giants who can cultivate and indirectly influence humanity. The trailer above gives the sense that this will be a laid-back experience, but we all know how these situations end; someone's leaving in a body bag.
According to Abbey, "the game is shaping up to what we want it to be. Also, all things considered (mostly empty bank-accounts), we feel the timing of May is quite convenient."
