I must admit a tiny bit of trepidation when I was about to start playing Godsrule, the cross-platform, browser-based MMORTS. A persistent RTS inspired by Scandinavian mythology? Sounds right up my street, I thought. But visions of the many horrors I have witnessed in Facebook games and their ilk came to the fore, and I was left uncertain.
After a couple of days of village construction, recruiting, and finally a climactic battle in which developer Jónas Antonsson thoroughly trounced me, I'm left with a significantly more positive impression of the game.
