Hooray For The Indie Games Arcade Winner!

By RPS on September 25th, 2011.


If you were (or are, as it’s still going on) lucky enough to be among the gaming hordes at the Eurogamer Expo you might have noticed a booth with “PC Gaming Since 1873″ emblazoned upon it. Inside are twelve games. Some of them are even PC games! We saw them. We judged them.

Find out which one was the winner of our yearly super-indie award accolade, below!

By Jim Rossignol on August 11th, 2011.


There is ONE WEEK LEFT to submit your game for the Indie Games Arcade (aka THE ROCK, PAPER, SHOTGUN INDIE GAMES ACRADE ARCADE), which is talking place from 22nd to the 25th of September at Earls Court, as part of the Eurogamer expo. If you are selected then seventy billion people will see your game! Hell, at least half a dozen of those people will be me. Want some more details? Read the magically extended version of this post for information provided by dashing Indie Games Arcade organiser, David Hayward. He’ll organise you right up.

RPS Indie Awardoramarama

By Alec Meer on October 5th, 2010.

The Eurogamer Expo has been and gone, but RPS’s brain-dumps about the games therein will continue over the days to come. YOU WILL LISTEN AND YOU WILL BELIEVE AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND.

One of the things we did at the Expo as well as play games, however, was judge some games. Specifically, the 12 splendid titles selected with the help of the good folk of Mudlark to form the Indie Games Arcade. 12 games. A few good-ish men. Security guards who didn’t want us to have an awards ceremony at a stand featuring our own logo. Whatever would we do?

Race For The Prize: RPS Indie Award-Giving

By Alec Meer on September 30th, 2010.

Earl's Court! As not inhabited by any earls!

It’s an important week for the Rock, the Paper and the Shotgun. Not only are we partially lopping off one of the Hivemind’s core nodes (/sadface), but we’re also presenting our first-ever award.

Specifically, for the best title at the Eurogamer Expo’s Indie Game Arcade this weekend. Members of RPS will be performing mystic incantations and inappropriate mental snuggling in order to ascertain which of 12 splendid indie games (shortlisted here) will be presented with a surprisingly large and easily-weaponised trophy.

We’ve now decided exactly how, where and when we’re going to do that, and it’d be just super if you were there.

RPS, EG Expo, And The Indie Games Arcade

By Jim Rossignol on September 14th, 2010.


The Eurogamer Expo is taking place at Earls Court in London from 1st-3rd October. One of the enticements there will be the Indie Games Arcade, organised by indie champions Pixel-Lab. They invited submissions for the expo, as we reported here. Those have now been boiled down to a shortlist, which I’ve posted below. Expo attendees will be able to play a demonstration version of each of those games at the show. Also, splendidly, Pixel-Lab’s David Hayward has invited the Rock, Paper, Shotgun team to be the judges of the best game at the arcade, which will win its own special award. So, indie games, we will be judging you. Even more than normal.

Indie Games Arcade Open For Submissions

By Kieron Gillen on July 19th, 2010.

Hurrah! You know Eurogamer do their expo on October 1st-3rd, in London-town? Well, it’s also got an internal expo of an indie-arcade where people get to show off their new games. Last year, it was a chance to play things like Joe Danger, Plain Sight and VVVVVV before release. Right now, however, it’s time for developers who may have something coming out to submit to Pixel-Lab. The full press release is beneath the cut, but there’s some more pointers over on the Indie Games Arcade site. There is one change from last year though – we’re involved, and will give the “Rock, Paper, Shotgun Indie Game of the Show” award to whoever we think is tops. It’s already being coveted, apparently, which is a good thing to do towards awards, but a bad thing to do towards your neighbour’s ox.
