Getting a little tired of the holidays? Have you ever thought that perhaps, if you were God, you might do things a little differently? Well, you just might get that chance when indie developer Squatting Penguins release their new God-like game called, The Mims Beginning”, on Steam Early Access on January 14th next year.
The Mims mixes a bunch of different elements (such as Sci Fi and fantasy) and play styles (such as RTS and adventure) into its gameplay, all rendered with some very cute graphics. In addition, the developers have given their little creatures emotional states.
A developer diary shows the depressed critters flinging themselves into a black hole. Players will be responsible for their Mims’ mental wellbeing and will need to work to ensure their Mims have a positive outlook on life. Now, I hadn’t really considered managing the smell of any of my worshippers, but this another important consideration for any wannabe Gods of the Mims.
Want more? Well, mysticism meets science as you will also need to consider physical properties such as gravity and friction when planning your Mims society. Throw in the potential for some naturally occurring disasters and you have quite a mix.
If you would like to flex your divine muscles and like some depth in your games, keep an all-seeing eye out for The Mims Beginning on Steam.
