Time-looping murder puzzler The Sexy Brutale is out

Time-looping murder puzzler The Sexy Brutale is out

15:55, 12 Apr 2017

Every day, the guests of casino mansion The Sexy Brutale are elaborately murdered by their hosts. Every day, the guests are reborn and murdered anew. Every day is the same day. Well, until we start meddling. I really groove on the sound of time-looping murder mystery The Sexy Brutale [official site], where each day unfolds […]

The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #3: Sex

20:00, 10 Mar 2017

Stop sniggering at the back. The RPS podcast of yore has returned, as you might have noticed, in which we are chatting to all sorts of interesting people from the makers of 90s cyberpunk thriller Quadrilateral Cowboy to the creators of political elbow-nudging Orwell, and so many more. In the third episode of this special […]

The Sexy Brutale [official site], the murder mystery set within a time loop of the same deadly day, now has a release date. Mark April 12th on your calendar — over and over, gouging circles with your pen until you tear through to May — as the date we’ll get to venture into the eponymous […]

Chuck Tingle’s Daffy Sexy FMV Game Hits Kickstarter

You can find some mighty strange sexystuff on the Internet. So a friend told me. I wouldn’t know about that. Not that I’m friends with sex people either. It was someone on the bus. Four rows behind me, okay? Anyway! Amongst the mighty strange sexystuff is the work of Chuck Tingle. The Hugo Award-nominated pseudonymous […]

Lords Of The Earth Flame’s Sexy Cave Romp

Lords Of The Earth Flame’s Sexy Cave Romp

18:00, 04 Oct 2016

Intrigued by the name I decided to try out The Lords Of The Earth Flame [official site] it’s a piece of interactive fiction that turned out to be interestingly flawed and very short. I think the text has actually been translated to English from another language – possibly Russian – so some of the turns […]

Megasphere Is Too Sexy For Its GIFs

09:00, 17 Jun 2015

Let me tell you a secret: games journalists are rather like cats. Many are fluffy. Most sleep at weird hours. And most importantly, we all have an inexplicable attraction to fast-moving, glowing things. Which is probably why I can’t stop staring at Megasphere [official site], an action platformer with lots of shiny, kinetic bobs and […]

The Complete S.EXE, Cara Ellison’s Series About Games, Sex and Relationships

The Complete S.EXE, Cara Ellison’s Series About Games, Sex and Relationships

21:00, 01 May 2015

From 2014-2015, RPS’s Senior Scottish Correspondent Cara Ellison wrote S.EXE, 29 columns about games about sex, games about love, games about the space in between those two things, games about sexuality, and games about schlongs. Unfortunately the series is on indefinite hiatus as Cara takes a break from writing about games after her spectacular but […]

Sex, Romance, And Faction Wars In Dragon Age Inquisition

Sex, Romance, And Faction Wars In Dragon Age Inquisition

19:00, 23 Jun 2014

Once upon a time, videogames were really horrible at depicting romance and sex. Plot twist: that time is now. Dragon Age: Origins, however, holds the dubious distinction of having some of the worst sex scenes in gaming, not to mention many relationships that ended in BioWare’s patented(ly pernicious) “give gifts until sex falls out” method. […]

A New, Sexier Party: SpyParty

A New, Sexier Party: SpyParty

09:00, 17 May 2014

SpyParty fits into a rather small list of games with the header “stuff I read about in PC Gamer for about thirty years but never actually tried” and also the “games Craig Pearson rather likes” one. They’re similar lists. For the unfamiliar, it’s a one-on-one espionage deal that pits a spy at a party against […]

BioWare’s Heir On Sexism, Racism, Homophobia In Games

19:00, 27 Mar 2014

GDC was jam-packed with brilliant talks, and I missed far too many of them because infinity appointments beckoned. One of the absolute best I *did* see, however, was Mass Effect 4 designer Manveer Heir making an impassioned plea to developers for more diversity in games. He gave a talk equal parts well-reasoned and resolute, arguing […]

Hotline Miami Devs Reconsidering Sexual Assault Scene

Hotline Miami Devs Reconsidering Sexual Assault Scene

13:00, 05 Sep 2013

Hotline Miami has played like a dream since day one, so Hotline Miami 2 is giving the blood red spotlight over to story. Between multiple characters and scenarios, a running meta-commentary on the series’ fans, and ruminations on The End, Dennaton clearly wants to make a statement with this one. The blink-and-you’re-mincemeat murder masterstroke has […]

The Hawkeneye Initiative: Meteor’s Sexy Poster Mishap

09:00, 15 May 2013

I love stories with happy endings. And uplifting middles. And only sorta upsetting beginnings. This is the rare tale that both rides that grin-coaxing emotional rollercoaster and focuses on issues of gender inequality in the gaming industry. A rarity? You don’t even know the half of it – mostly because I haven’t told you about any […]

Misogyny, Sexism, And Why RPS Isn’t Shutting Up

Misogyny, Sexism, And Why RPS Isn’t Shutting Up

15:00, 06 Apr 2013

There were two sessions in a row on Wednesday afternoon at this year’s GDC. The first was a panel of women in the games industry, discussing the causes and results of the #1ReasonWhy and #1ReasonToBe phenomena – the reasons to be and not be in the games industry. The second was Feminist Frequency’s Anita Sarkeesian, […]

Dragon Age III’s Gaider On The Impracticality Of Sexism

12:00, 28 Mar 2013

All this talk of sexism isn’t going away, nor should it. The gaming industry’s sick, and the symptoms are plain as day. Mystifyingly often, however, the immediate reaction to even the faintest hint of that suggestion is “No, nuh-uh! You just want to censor expression! Give me one good reason we actually need to change.”* […]

Brave soldiers of Vanu, I bring you news of the war. This is classified, so don’t let it slip into enemy hands. First off, manicures are now manditory. You are mean and nasty, but that’s no excuse for the level of nail-care I’ve been seeing. Buff, people. We are Vanu. We have standards. Secondly, there […]

Geralt has a beard now. We know this much for certain. Oh, and I suppose he’s also got that whole open-world thing going on. But adding a new number to your title’s a big responsibility, and a simple promise that you’ll feed it, water it, and add boats for some reason (because year of the […]

“Blood To The Sexy”: Deck 13’s Blood Knights Revealed

10:00, 27 Jul 2012

Blood Knights! They’re like normal knights, but much blooder. That’s (I am guessing) the design philosophy behind freshly announced action-slasher Blood Knights, which is being cooked up by Jack Keane devs Deck 13. They explain that their game is “a full blooded Vampire-Action-RPG that features intense combat, tons of weapons, items as well as vampiric […]

In-game footage of Total War: Rome II is being cruelly withheld until time indeterminate, but the important thing is that I’ve seen it and you haven’t, ner ner ner ner ner ner ner. Ner. I’ve even spoken to the devs about it. Ner! I suppose you deserve to see something for yourself though, even if […]

Yesterday, I mind-melded with CD Projekt CEO and owner of the most victorious last name ever, Marcin Iwinski, on all things Cyberpunk. Also, DRM. However, with those topics covered and safely underneath fluffy wordblankets of information, the conversation weaved its way toward the next natural stop. I’m speaking, of course, of Westeros. Read on for […]
