Rising From The Depths: Capy’s Below Coming To PC

By Craig Pearson on April 11th, 2014.

Actual staring eyes!

I wouldn’t be writing about Below on RPS if it weren’t coming to the PC, because in spite of the many, many, oh-so-very-many emails from marketers and PRs about iOS hidden object games (and the occasional moment of writer’s prerogative), this is mostly a PC site. So we haven’t mentioned Capy’s Below until now, because it was tied up in Xbox Xclusivity. That’s changed, as was revealed in a very elegant fashion in the trailer I’ve embedded yonder. I’m not going to spoil how they did it, because I think what they did was lovely and speaks to the game’s core adventurousness, and I want you to smile like I did.

And just what is Below? Well I’ve attempted to find out for you bel-, er, beneath. It’s not entirely clear.

Wow: Hyper Light Drifter Is Diablo Meets Link To The Past

By Nathan Grayson on September 13th, 2013.

Meets Neon Genesis Evangelion, apparently.

Oh. Oh my. That is the second post I’ve introduced with those words today, but that does not (necessarily!) mean I’m creatively bankrupt. Rather, it’s been a very good time for brilliantly impressive games that just sort of appear out of nowhere. First Eden Star took me entirely by surprise with its runleaping Minecraft’s Edge antics, and now Hyper Light Drifter is dazzling me with glorious grimdarkpink art and music provided by Fez chiptune maestro Disasterpeace. Oh, and then there is this: “It plays like the best parts of A Link to the Past and Diablo, evolved: lightning fast combat, more mobility, an array of tactical options, more numerous and intelligent enemies, and a larger world with a twisted past to do it all in.” Mmmmmmmm, yes. Good. Goooooooood.

Steam Summer Sale Redux: All Of The Indies

By Nathan Grayson on August 1st, 2012.

And hey, only eight more where that came from.

Welp, I guess that’s it, then. We can’t escape it. The Steam Summer Sale’s returned, but honestly, can you remember a single moment before it began? Was there ever a moment before it began? Maybe we’re trapped in some infinite, Groundhog-Day-style loop of spending, obligation, and guilt. Maybe we’ll never escape. Maybe this is the least threatening eternal hell loop ever conceived. But oh well, because look at all of the savings!

Humble Indie Bundle V Is A Corker

By John Walker on May 31st, 2012.

Tis it a dream?

There’s a new Humble Bundle, wouldn’t you believe it. And blimey, it’s a good-un. I’m not in charge of deciding what’s best, but this looks to me like one of the best bundles I’ve ever seen. Just look at this list: Amnesia, Limbo, Sword & Sworcery, Bastion, and Psychonauts. Seriously. And it has an absolutely brilliant video to promote it.

Wot I Think: Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

By Kieron Gillen on April 20th, 2012.

You got a Sword? You got a Sworce? Then let's GET IT ON.
Let’s be prosaic to begin with. Sword & Sworcery EP is the result of a collaboration between Superbrothers, CAPY and musician Jim Guthrie. It’s converted lovingly from its initial Apple phoney-paddy-thing format last year, where it was very well thought of. It’s a graphic adventure which stresses atmosphere and style over traditional puzzles. I like it. You probably will too.

I’m being prosaic, because I’m just about to go off on a 500-word micro-essay tangent. I’ll get back to Sword & Sworcery EP eventually. Trust me. And if you’re interested in the game, you better get used to that. You’re in journey-over-destination territory.

Superbrothers: Sword And Sworcery Now On Swteam

By Nathan Grayson on April 16th, 2012.

That’s Steam, just so you know – not a clumsily abbreviated form of “swim team.” I’m not sure what a highly acclaimed iOS indie adventure would be doing on a swim team, but I have a number of overly elaborate theories. At any rate, the world’s most gorgeous excuse for massive mountains of tiresome tweet spam has officially achieved its vague release date of  ”soon” by hitting Steam. Better still, it’s on sale for £3.74 until next week, and a free soundtrack rounds out the pixelated package. We will probably write Some Words about it in the future. Until then, I confess that I’ve played it on an unholy Apple rune tablet, and I found it to be quite delightful. I hope, however, that it doesn’t include the iOS version’s tilt mechanics, because my PC weighs more than an iPad factory.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery Headed For PC

By Jim Rossignol on April 3rd, 2012.


Capybara Games have confirmed that their beautiful, lo-fi iOS adventure game Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery will be arriving on Steam “very soon”. Good news, I think, because it’s a gentle, weird little game that does a lot with a little and creates an unusual atmosphere. Sort of nostalgic, but at the same time feeling quite modern.

There’s also going to be a Mac version, of course. Trailer below.
