Godhood goes EA on Steam

I've mostly checked out of EA games (and am disgruntled the last few games I bought post release are being treated like EA games but...), though I probably would have combined the 10% off plus the $5 summer sale discount to get this if it would have released yesterday.

Ignoring Black and White, I have a good history of liking god games, even a $5 play it to death to "beat" it and drop it game like Rues was.

It's by the same group that wrapped up a lot content after content additions to Reknowned Explorers, which I enjoyed far more than I thought I would and every blue moon go back to (discovering they had added more content that I didn't even have to pay for beyond the two DLC I *did* pay for.)

So I'm a fan of Abbeygames and a fan of God games so I've got my eye on this. I'll probably start looking for Let's Plays this weekend.

Edit and here's one from today

It looks very interesting, but I wonder about the repetitive nature. That's what the negative reviews on Steam point out.

Need to tunnel through a mountain? Grond. Kill a mighty ogre? Grond. Hangnail? Grond. Spider? Grond (actually, that's a legit use, moreso than the rest)." - Peacedog

It's EA and freshly so, so who's to say. Rues was repetitve but I got my five buck out of it and put it down. Renowned Explorers is repetitive but I enjoy it and still pick up from time to time and while they sold two DLC they supported and expanded it for years.

This is not to say this game will be good. It's to say this is genre I like by a developer how has been 2 for 2 with my money, so it has my attention.

If this ends up being another Rues level entertainment but for $25+ paid for DLC, I'll be disappointed.

I agree. It looks great for $5. Not so much for $25.
