Wot I Think: Singularity

By John Walker on July 8th, 2010.

There's only one of them.

Raven’s Singularity is now available. I’ve manipulated my time such that I’ve played it from beginning to end, in that order, and can now tell you Wot I Think.

The One And Only: Singularity Out. Good?

By Kieron Gillen on June 28th, 2010.

Clearsil doesn't always work.

It comes my attention via stimulation of my optic nerve by photons that Raven’s Singularity is out. Which means you can buy it. We’re expecting a copy shortly, so will be trying to Wot-i-think-it as soon as possible. Until then, I thought it would be well inside the friendly RPS tradition to create a post to show you a relatively recent trailer and provide a place to talk about your experiences. That is, your experiences with Singularity. Not generally speaking, though I dare say that prohibition isn’t going to stop you.

The Gloves Are, Er, On: Singularity Trailers

By John Walker on May 28th, 2010.

When I'm older I want to be a skellington too.

I have this glove that can manipulate objects through time. So I’ve been excited to follow the progress of Singularity, a game that I can identify with. However, now they’ve revealed that the glove in the game can also fire giant bursts of “Impulse Power”, which makes mine look like last year’s iPhone. It can also fire time bubbles to trap your enemies. I could do with one of those after yesterday. You can watch the glove-based action below. Along with a few other bits and pieces about the glove that have appeared in the last couple of weeks. It’s set for release at the end of next month, but I could of course just get a copy whenever I wanted by reaching into the future and grabbing it. I don’t, because of embargoes.

Singularity: Actually This Year

By Jim Rossignol on April 17th, 2010.


No, the game, not the bizarre nerd rapture. And anyway, it’s a manshooter news day, alright. Raven’s time-bending shooter, Singularity – which I maintain should have been called TIME GLOVE! – is actually being released in 2010. In fact, we can be more precise still: it’s coming out on June 29th. And there’s a new trailer, which is around here somewhere… Blimey, it actually looks moderately interesting. Some of the time-based transformations are pretty impressive and… well, if Raven can make a full game out of them then we might just be in for a treat. Also, I want to fight people by making them old.

The Year Ahead, Part Two

By Jim Rossignol on January 15th, 2010.


We’re peering through the futurescope at the games we can expect to see in the coming year. There’s plenty to work through, so let’s get on with a look at some of the notable games of Spring and Summer 2010. (You can read part one here.)

Time’s Collapsing! Singularity Walkthrough Trailer

By John Walker on September 9th, 2009.

Oh please don't let the monsters be rubbish and mess this up.

I’m maintaining my optimism for Singularity. I love all the time-twisty effects and ideas, and I’m intrigued by the mysterious nature of what I’ve seen so far. The latest walkthrough video is just the one I’ve wanted to see – an explanation of how the time-bending works. Including details on the “null zone”, a place that exists between time, that I think looks rather spiffy.

Time Is Collapsing: Singularity Trailer

By John Walker on August 19th, 2009.

Someone stole his flesh and skin and stuff!

GamesCom (it’s apparently spelt “gamescom” but I just refuse) reveals a new trailer for Raven’s Singularity, which shows a good deal more in-game footage than we’ve seen so far. I know there’s cynicism, but I remain very interested in this. I know there has to be a shooter that gets time manipulation correct one day, and it looks lots of explosive fun. So there. Have a look at the new content below.

The Bleak Midwinter: Big Games Slip To 2010

By John Walker on July 14th, 2009.

You'll have to wait to beat that child with a pistol, sir.

It’s going to be a quieter Christmas than we were expecting. A bundle of big-name games have announced in the last few days that they’ll no longer be bulging Santa’s sack, but instead offering themselves in the colder months of 2010. This year your Christmas tree will not be towering over 2K games BioShock 2, Mafia II, nor Max Payne 3. Indeed they’re not alone. A smattering of console-only titles have also slipped, as well as Activision’s Singularity. What’s a jolly-bellied man to do this holiday season? Deliver Modern Warfare 2 an awful lot, it seems.

Fight The Signs Of Ageing, With Singularity

By Jim Rossignol on April 28th, 2009.


A glove that can de-age things. Imagine what the Loreal face-scientists could do with that. Somehow, though, this is not a piece of cosmetics technology, but an item of military hardware in the hands of the protagonist of Raven’s forthcoming shooter, Singularity. In fact, de-ageing stuff is central to the hook of the game. We all thought it was about time travelling, but that’s not the whole story. The trailer beneath the cut shows our singular hero fixing decayed cover and bring a tree back to life. Not in that Okami way, but in very much an inevitable-physics-death-for-masked-enemies way. Go see for yourself.

Time Unravels: New Singularity Trailer

By John Walker on February 23rd, 2009.

Mmmm, toasty.

I’ve made one of my official decisions. Singularity is going to be good. If, for whatever reason it turns out to not be good, Raven forfeit the right to make games any more. Times are harsh, my wrath is mighty. So far the teaser output has been of a really entertaining standard. In rather good news, there’s a new trailer out, and it shows in-game footage. It’s below.

Essential? Singularity Videos Appear

By John Walker on February 13th, 2009.

Visit them before the FSB do.

We haven’t heard much of Raven’s new shooter, Singularity, since E3 last year when the first trailer appeared. Now a blaze of virally teasers are appearing, and while it’s not showing us any game footage, it’s making the thing seem damned interesting. We’ve got the latest stuff below, and they’re really good.
