Video Mondaily – The Forest Begins

“The Forest is an open world survival horror game currently in development for PC. Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.” At least, that’s the tagline for The Forest by Endnight Games. What they weren’t counting on apparently was Tim being an absolute bad-ass and totally destroying the horrifying and evil denizens of the game. It’s hilarious, it’s awesome and it shows off an alpha version of a game which looks like it has a tonne of potential to be both amazing and properly scary. Check it out after the jump!

Reus review – I am the god of BUSHES and TINY FLUFFY ANIMALS!

Reus by Abbey Games is an indie god game where you play the part of four giants who morph a lifeless and barren planet with seas, swamps, forests and mountains in order to bring life to your world. It’s a game which could possibly be pronounced “R-oos” (as in the Greek god Zeus), but I have taken to pronouncing “Ree-us”. It’s a completely charming and amusing experienced accompanied by a variety of challenges and obstacles all played along to with a pleasant graphics style and a melodious soundtrack. The game plays out with you being given control of the four giants and their abilities and a whole world for you to bend to your will. You see your planet from the side on and so are given a side-scrolling view of the planet with a set number of spaces which you can morph and utilise. You can zoom in and out and click and drag to spin the world so that you can mould the whole place into whatever you desire. Then, once all the moulding you feel is necessary is done, you use your giants to place down a variety of animals, plants and minerals for humans to use.
