Impostor Factory closes out To The Moon with a “bonkers time-loop tragicomedy”

Impostor Factory, the closing act of pixellated memory-hopper To The Moon, is starting out on some bizarre feat. Matt was sceptical after the teaser dropped this March with nothing but a lady with an umbrella and the promise of "a series of bloody murders." Was that scepticism earned? Maybe? Freebird Games released their first full trailer for Impostor Factory today and like, yeah. It's daft.…

Crusader Kings 3 slips into intrigue and subterfuge

Building empires in Crusader Kings 3 is dirty work.

Paradox's latest Crusader Kings 3 dev diary is all about plotting and scheming,…

The Blackout Club’s suburban gods are talking back

Gods tend to be a bit on the quiet side. You can leave 'em a voice-mail, but it's rare enough that they'll ever answer back. For some of The Blackout Club's teen detectives, though, the gods have been quite vocal indeed. Question's co-op horror has a trick up its sleeve. The supernatural forces of 80s suburbia have been sliding into voice chat, turning spooky multiplayer…

Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to Steam next Thursday

While Red Dead Redemption 2's been out on PC for a month, Rockstar's cowboy epic has only been sold through their own store and Epic's clients, steering clear of Steam. It was always due to mosey on over, of course, but like a fine wine, it needed time to breath (and satisfy exclusivity arrangements). Today, Rockstar announced a release date for RDR2's Steam debut, opening…

The Stanley Parable’s narrator answers your (definitely real) release date concerns

Is that a tingling in my ears? Has Kevan Brighting's soothing voice returned to comfort my lobes? The Stanley Parable's narrator is back in a new trailer, and he's got some concerning news regarding the development of the upcoming Ultra Deluxe edition. Reluctantly, regrettably, and due to popular demand, it appears the labyrinthine adventure's second remake won't be launching as planned this year.

The last Steam Controllers ever made sold out this week

The Steam Controller's death heralds…

Google Stadia is reportedly overheating some Chromecast Ultras

Oh, Google Stadia. I'd feel bad for the thing, if it wasn't an absolutely naff concept from a data-hungry megacorp. In the latest in a long line of launch blunders, some users are now reporting that playing games on the dang thing is burning up their Chromecast Ultras, running the plug-in devices hot enough to shut down during play. Finding and keeping a stable connection…

No, Cyberpunk 2077 hasn’t confirmed microtransactions in multiplayer

Let's get this out of the way: CD Projekt Red really haven't confirmed much regarding Cyberpunk 2077's multiplayer. They know it's happening (eventually) but what that looks like, or when it'll happen? Not even Keanu knows. Last week it was reported that CDPR may know one thing for certain - CP2077 multiplayer would be monetised, and include "well thought-out" microtransactions. However, it looks like the…

A Maze Berlin secures another year of indie games, Thin Lizzie sing-a-longs

Be warned, dear reader. I've just been given space to ramble about my favourite time of year. A Maze Berlin, an international celebration of wonderful indie games and the people who make them, stood on shaky ground this year after failing to acquire support from German funding bodies. Fortunately, A Maze isn't quite dead yet. A last-ditch effort to crowdfund a 2020 show passed its…
