IMG Previews GODUS
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new preview of 22cans' upcoming GODUS. The game puts players in the role of a god, giving them the power to create their own world and populate it with devoted followers. When not sculpting the land and guiding the course of civilization players will also be able to engage in god vs god warfare via multiplayer challenges against other would-be deities.

Here's an excerpt:

To date, much of the game involves this clearing of land for followers to build bigger and nicer houses as your realm grows; along the way you will also come upon treasure chests with cards you need to collect and shrines you need to repair, some of which increase the size of your territory and some of which open up new areas of gameplay. You need to collect the cards to advance your civilization from a primitive state to more advanced ages, and you'll get more cards when you participate in online (against a bot so far) challenges/battles against other gods and their civilizations. These battles are necessary to get some of the cards you need to advance your civilization, so Godus seems set to join the ranks of games requiring online play. As mentioned above, however, so far your battles are against a bot that has no desire to beat you. As time goes on and you gain more belief from your followers, you also gain greater god powers, culminating, so far at least, in the ability to call down meteors, presumably on your foes, but hey, you're god, you can smite who you like.

Cities In Motion 2: Marvellous Monorails Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive has announced the release of Marvellous Monorails, a new expansion for Cities in Motion 2, the transit-planning strategy game from Colossal Order. The addition includes five new monorail vehicles as well as new elevated rails to carry them, and will require new strategies for effectively adding the monorails to cities.

In Marvellous Monorails, Cities in Motion 2 players can add five all-new monorail vehicles to their transit fleets, and give their cities a new look with elevated rails to carry them. Monorails, which work best on circular layouts, are ideal for inner-city connections, and offer a more affordable alternative to metro lines, with a choice of cars from big-and-slow to speedy-but-expensive.

In Cities in Motion 2, players must design, construct, maintain, and expand a multifaceted transit network that serves the needs of a growing city. Fleets of vehicles, including buses, trains, ferries and subways, must be assembled and set in motion on player-created tracks and routes, providing affordable and efficient transit between growing residential and commercial centers. As players engineer their systems, the city will grow dynamically around them, keeping players on their toes with increased population, congestion, and budgetary concerns.

Marvellous Monorails is available now for $9.99. Learn more at the links below.
