Crowdforging: Below Kryll

By John Walker on December 12th, 2013.

I am increasingly aware that I’m a creaking old granddad, stuck in my archaic ways and unable to understand the games the kids play these days. Starbound leaves me utterly bemused, shouting something about how it was all better on the wireless, and wondering what happened to good old fashioned big band swing music. But Below Kryll, which too is a side-scrolling platform-based game made of those ever-more familiar Terraria-like squares, has drawn me in much more quickly. And that’s despite this being a game entirely created by its players.

1 Game 1 Cup: New South Park: The Stick Of Truth Trailer

By Graham Smith on December 11th, 2013.

A cup of fart gets me out of bed in the morning.

I love the way South Park: The Stick of Truth looks just like the TV Show. I know the show has been animated on computers for years, but imitating its 2D animation so perfectly is a greater magic trick than anything performed by Battlefield 4.

Speaking of magic tricks. Come watch this latest trailer about how to cup and throw one in the other new Obsidian RPG.

Dyscourse Has In-Game Footage At Last – Hurrah!

By John Walker on December 2nd, 2013.

Dyscourse finally has some in-game footage. Six minutes of it, in fact. Is this what you were waiting for before you pledged to its Kickstarter? Because I’m really not sure what else anyone could be hoping for from such a tempting pitch: Keep a bunch of weirdos alive on an island, and those weirdos can be Tim Schafer and Ed McMillen. They’ve only four days left on their Kickstarter to raise another $15,000. Want to know why you should? The development team have promised they’ll answer any questions about anything you like in the comments below this post.

Catacomb Kids Will Win You Over Within 55 Seconds

By John Walker on November 27th, 2013.

Here are my thoughts during the first 55 seconds of the Catacomb Kids video:

“Looks nice, but sure looks like yet another pixel roguelike.”
“He’s got a really decent jump. That’s neat.”
“Wait, distractions? There’s more happening here.”
“Oh. Oooohhhh. Oh, okay, yeah, I’m posting about this.

Paper Sorcerer Is Out, Demoed, Rather Pretty

By John Walker on November 25th, 2013.

Every now and then a Kickstarter asks for so little that you wonder if the developers have really thought it through. With such a low target, can they really achieve their goals? Well, RPG Paper Sorcerer could. Asking for only $5,000 back in June 2012, it went on to make rather more with $13,151 in donations. A year later than planned, the game is now out. And it still looks as striking as it did back then. It’s now on Greenlight, of course, and there’s a demo for your judgement.

EVE’s Rubicon Has Been Crossed

By John Walker on November 20th, 2013.

EVE Online’s Winter expansion, Rubicon, is now live. And how do we best celebrate this? A CGI trailer! Still, at least it isn’t live action, I suppose.

GET. READY. Speedball 2 HD Out 5th December

By John Walker on November 20th, 2013.

The last time someone said they were remaking Speedball 2, it didn’t go well. The classic, fantastic future-sports game had even a sportless buffoon like me absolutely enthralled. For years after it came out, Greg, Fred, James and I regularly invaded Mike Smith’s house to engage in lengthy tournaments, before things inevitably descended into cider and Night Trap. Or just hammering away at the Atari ST version in ’91 aged 13, not having fully grasped the rules, but enjoying the punching. Then in 2007 Kylotonn decided to remake it in 3D. Remember Speedball 2 Tournament? No? Exactly. It was released onto Steam at the time. It’s not there any more.

But now we have news of yet another remake, Speedball 2 HD, due out next month, this time headed up by Sensible’s Jon Hare, and Bitmap’s Mike Montgomery. This sounds far more promising.

Mathematical! Adventure Time: Explore The Dungeon Launch

By John Walker on November 20th, 2013.

It’s entirely thanks to RPS favourite Craig Pearson that I have Adventure Time in my life. And thank goodness. What a joy it brings. And I’ve so, so many episodes still to watch! I’ve even completed the stupid, surprisingly entertaining Android Super Jumping Finn, in a desire to enter that world. So it’s with some excitement that I notice Adventure Time: Explore The Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! is now out. Also, fear, because if it’s rubbish, it’ll rather spoil the water. I’m going to take a look today. Meanwhile, there’s a launch trailer below.

League Of Legends Pre-Season Rubdown

By John Walker on November 18th, 2013.

League Of Legends, eh? Yeah! Got to love all those leagues it has. And the way the men do the… that thing with the… guns? Are there guns? Oh God, look, okay, I haven’t the faintest idea about League Of Legends. Yes, I co-own the world’s greatest PC gaming website, and it’s been my job to write about PC games for the last fifteen years, but that imperfect storm of strategy-meets-multiplayer-meets-e-sports propels it so far out of my understanding that it may as well be, I don’t know, foot-to-ball. I understand that there are some rules, and the men with the complicated haircuts have to kick and not throw the ball into the other side’s net, but beyond that it’s like the physical manifestation of a language I don’t speak. Theretoalso, League Of Legends. Fortunately, there’s a handy video below to explain what’s coming up this season.

X: Rebirth Is Out Tomorrow, Launch Trailer Below

By Graham Smith on November 14th, 2013.

Space is surprisingly colourful.

Alright, so this is how it’s going to be, is it? Craig was Scottish and loved space games. Graham’s Scottish so everyone assumes he must love space games too, right? You’d be racist if Scotland was a race. And if I didn’t love space games. But I do.

X: Rebirth is very exciting, it is being released tomorrow, and now there is a launch trailer below.

Run, The Forest, Run: New Trailer For Crafty Survival Horror

By Graham Smith on November 11th, 2013.

How else would we signal a passing rescue boat?

The Forest is Minecraft meets Slender, or Lost: The Game, or Sir, You Are Henry David Thoreau, or any one of a number of other lazy comparisons that does more to make me look knowledgeable than it does to actually tell you about the game.

Ahem. So watch this new trailer instead. It’s Stalker meets Wurm Online!

EverQuest Next Landmark Dev Diary Explains Minecraft

By Graham Smith on November 7th, 2013.

Still got booby ladies in it, so it's not too progressive.

I knew roughly what SOE had planned for their new EverQuest game, but I was still surprised by how different it was when Adam broke the cardinal rule of Vegas by telling us about it. The first part, Landmark, is a free-to-play sandbox game built from voxels in which players can dig and build and design the world around them.

The latest developer diary walks you through the different materials and tools that make that world.
