    Reus 2 by developer Abbey Games is the exciting and long-awaited sequel to the 2013 God game and colony sim, Reus. Become a God and utilize 6 powerful Giants to terraform the world. Create ecosystems for resources in order to enable the survival of humans. Your ultimate job is to shape humanity and determine which direction they should develop. Your choices matter in this game. Everything you do will decide the fate of humans, so choose wisely.

    You have 6 Giants at your disposal to do your bidding. Each of the Giants in Reus 2 is a master of a unique ability that will help you shape the world. Their abilities in plants, animals, and minerals will let you create unique biomes for your humans to settle into. As the game progresses, you’ll unlock new useful abilities for the Giants so you can further shape the world. In order to help the humans flourish, you need to create livable environments beyond just the plants and animals. Work to evolve their primitive societies into advanced civilizations and reach for the stars! Just make sure to meet their needs appropriately, or they will rebel, and rebellion can lead to the end of the world. 

    Release Date

    Reus 2 is set to release on Steam May 28th, 2024! You can go ahead and Wishlist it now, though. 

    As Far As the Eye is a beautiful and engaging colony sim you should also check out.

    First came Rusty’s Retirement, a farming idle game that chills at the bottom of your screen while you do other things. Next comes Idle Waters! Only instead of being a farming game, this idler focuses on fishing! This game also sits comfortably at the bottom of your screen so you can focus on other tasks while it runs. 

    Idle Waters fishes while you’re busy doing other things. Simply click to catch the fish at your leisure. You’ll catch different types of fish from several different ecosystems, too. It looks like there’s at least 100 “common” fish varieties, which seems to indicate there are other rarities to catch! Plus, there’s a fish tank feature you can edit and decorate to observe the fish you’ve caught over time. 

    Release Date

    Idle Waters will release on Steam at some point. There is no date listed, but you can add it to your Wishlist now!

    Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Teatopia by developer Yixin Games, where you run your own farm in an environment full of Chinese culture and beautiful designs. Turn your overgrown farm into a haven for crops. Care for a variety of animals, from livestock to pets. Cook some exquisite meals and teas. Plus, immerse yourself in a vibrant community while discovering the secrets to the underworld’s Ghost Market. 

    Teatopia follows the classic farming sim formula, where you start out on a farm that’s overgrown with wild weeds and tremendous trees. Of course, you’ll work hard to clear these obstacles in order to free up space for your crops. Build sheds to care for livestock and even breed them. They’ll produce products like eggs and milk for you. But you can also have an animal companion, like a cat or dog. The pets find treasures for you if you develop a deep bond!

    Explore the secrets of traditional Chinese cooking that Teatopia has to offer by whipping up delicious recipes you acquire from all over. You even manage your own tea plantation and create exquisite teas. And of course, you get to explore the East and West urban areas, where you’ll find different attractions and vibrant characters. Plus, the Ghost Market is an intriguing place to wander! This enchanting underworld is where fairies and humans converge, but it also has some unique products for sale.
