Yeah, this is my first review, so it'll probably be awful, but I'm going to be brutally honest here: This waste of cash was BORING.
What do I mean? Well...there is so much micromanaging, but that's only percentage-wise. The gameplay is EXTREMELY slow, enough to put someone to sleep. A game about being a sky-god SHOULD NOT BE BORING. I spent the entire first session, all 91 minutes or whatever, waiting for it to kick up its intensity even slightly.
Nothing. Black and White was better than this - B&W shoots Godus with a sniper rifle, in one eye and out the other, from a distance of about a kilometer, then does awful things to its corpse.
To make it worse, the click-and-drag interface. Oh. Dear. GOD the interface. A lot of people seem to be frustrated by this point, so read those reviews for more details.
I would more easily recommend Dwarf Fortress - yes, THAT Dwarf Fortress - to a casual gamer, than I would this to anyone. Heck, I enjoy DF, and I'm pretty casual.
That this game is $20 USD isn't just salt in the wound. It's more like someone put a rocksalt shot in a shotgun, put the barrel's opening directly on my right hand, and pulled the trigger. I literally would not recommend this game for 10% of its asking price.
You want a better game? Go buy Dragon: the Game. It's $2 cheaper than this, and while yes, it's still in development and pretty buggy, that means the developers want your input as much as your cash. Give it to them, and don't give this developer a dime.
You want another better game? How about The Long Dark. Same price, but much better developed, with survival in the wilds of frozen Canada and wolves trying to tear you to pieces. It's tough, but at least it's a way better buy.
You want another one? What am I, a computer? Go browse on your own. You'll probably find more hits on Steam than this thing's cost in pennies.
