Rues is a god game with a bit of a twist, where you directly control a giant god-like creature on a circular planet. You use your massive strength to terraform the planet, create new life, and alter genes. You’ll be providing resources for the humans that live on your patch of land, but the way that you interact with them can change their advancement. Providing humans with too many resources will cause them to become greedy and seek war with other humans, thereby leading you into battle with another giant.
There’s a ton of freedom as to how you want to approach your civilization, and Reus can be quite a calming game as you just exist with the humans on your patch of land. Its vibrant 2D art style also helps give it a unique personality.
