Gorgeous 2D indie god game Reus has been a considerable success. Developer Abbey Games shared its sales figures with Joystiq, with co-founder Manuel Kerssemakers saying sharing sales figures is important for indie developers. The game sold 100,000 copies in its first two months and doubled its sales figures during the Steam Summer Sale. You can grab it on Steam for $10.

    A problem Reus has from the outset is accessibility and I’m really not sure whether it’s fair to talk about that, but it does impact me. I find the text in the game punishingly tiny. It’s almost as if the game hates anyone with substandard vision.

    All well and good to talk about reading glasses, of course, but sadly my vision problems are due to optic nerve-related things, and the actual eyeballs are mostly fine. So that’s not going to help me at all.

    It’s just a shame when an indie developer insists on creating a game that anyone without eagle-like vision would need glasses to even think about playing.

    I’m glad I supported Reus, though. I played a little bit of it with Windows Magnifier, and I liked what it was. I just didn’t have the patience to play too much of it because of the aforementioned tiny text.
