The Spectacular & Startling RPS Advent Calendar 2015

Celebrating 2015's best PC games.

It's a Christmas miracle! The RPS Advent Calendar lives once more. That means that over the next 24 days we'll be opening small cardboard doors and celebrating the favourite games we find within. The games are in no particular order, except for the 24th which will be our favourite game of the year, and we're combining it with last year's Bestest Bests to award each game a particular best-in-genre title.

You can click the numbered doors in the image above to whip straight to the post for that day. It's powered by Christmas magic and the web's hottest technology of 1997.

We've done this before, including in 2007 when the calendar was a photo of an actual calendar that John bought, and then in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. In 2014 we did the RPS Bestest Bests which were similar but didn't have a drawing of a calendar and thus were clearly inferior.

We'll update this post as it goes along of course, so that each of the doors above links to the appropriate day's game.
