Instantly Instant Jam: Play It Below & Stuff

By Alec Meer on October 20th, 2010.

Not sure if you’ve heard much about Guitar Hero [word redacted] ah, tribute Instant Jam, but basically it’s a streaming browser thing that lets you play rhythm-action adaptations of theoretically any song for free. As long as you have it on your hard drive, buy the track from the game’s store or use one of the built-in songs, anyway.

They’ve just opened it up to embedding on other sites – which means you can play the bally thing in its entirety below. A game! An actual game! Playable on RPS! We should do more of that. Have a play, then go shout obscure songs and impossible high scores at each other in the comments below. Let the great Kate Bush wars of 2008 begin again…

Immediate Fruit Preserve: Instant Jam

By Quintin Smith on September 13th, 2010.

Whoa, oh-oh, oh-oh. My sex is on fire. My doctor gave me these creams.

What if I were to tell you that you could play Guitar Hero, for free, on your PC, using your own music, right now. Maybe you’d call me a liar, and you’d be way out of line because Facebook application Instant Jam is basically that, and it’s currently in open beta and you could be playing it in the time the program takes it to scan your music collection. Details, thoughts and a video after the jump.

Not So Secret: Play Monkey Island Right Here

By Alec Meer on April 30th, 2010.

Well, the first 20 minutes of it. But right here. Lucasarts have gotten into bed with streaming browser game specialists InstantAction and come up with a clever special edition of the Special Edition of The Secret Of Monkey Island which fits neatly into an RPS post. This doubtless, was their sole intent for it. Expect more games converted to play within RPS posts, starting with Crysis 2 next month.

Ooh: Tribes Goes To War (Again)

By Alec Meer on March 18th, 2009.


Gawd-blast Kotaku, nabbing a thoroughly PC exclusive like this. Get off our land, yous. Bah. Their colour scheme’s still hideous, mind.

Anyway, this time around, they’ve got games-in-browsers types InstantAction to reveal they’ll soon have the original Starsiege: Tribes up for free, browserly play.

More Free Play On InstantAction

By Jim Rossignol on December 12th, 2008.


The InstantAction blog reports there’s a whole load of free gaming now available at their online gaming portal. If you’ve not had a go at Galcon yet (pictured) then it’s worth a look. People who purchased action passes “may” be eligible for a refund, and will get early access to the three new games currently in beta.

Anyway, if you haven’t yet been over to InstantAction and had a good look around, now is a good time to do so.

Instant Instant Action

By Alec Meer on March 7th, 2008.

Garagegames, they of the Torque middleware engine best known from Tribes, have today opened up the beta of their latest endeavour, InstantAction. I had hoped for InstantActon, in which I could wander a streaming 3D representation of the birthplace of The Who and that power station they filmed bits of Aliens inside, but this’ll have to do.

JETPACKS!

By Kieron Gillen on December 24th, 2007.

While I weight up the possibility of starting Christmas shopping and/or working out how to get back to my hometown of Stafford, Colin Pyle brings us news that Shacknews brought him news of some leaked footage for something that looks an awful lot like Starsiege Tribes from GarageGames… founded by members of Dynamix… who… made… Starsiege tribes. Woo!

NOT tribes

Garagegames have stressed this is alpha footage and wasn’t meant for anything other the internal use – which always makes me image everyone crawling into the Lead Designer’s guts any time they want to look at it – but it’s over at Shacknews, along with some other captures too. It seems to be part of Garagegames InstantAction initiative, which will be launching next year. If you haven’t heard of it, imagine ULTRA-FLASH meets Post-Steam. Or something.
