So I discovered this cool game called Reprisal yesterday thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
Its a cool little pixel, web browser based game thats been built with games of old like Populous in mind. Basically its a god game where you shape terrain to get your little tribal guys to fight the enemy, win territory, build villages and harvest resources.
The only requirement is a web browser! (And flash) Go try it out now and let me know what you think, I’m only up to level three but its pretty fun having a game like this available at the click of a bookmark.
UPDATE: There is now a desktop version available for Windows and Mac! (You just need to have Adobe Air installed). Don’t forget to give the developer a donation, the game might be free but the time he put into it wasn’t and its definitely worth paying for.
ANOTHER UPDATE: It is now also available on Linux via the Desura distribution system which is great news for people wanting to play this game offline on their *nix machines! Make sure you go check it out, NOW!
