Feature: Spooky, scary...

Priceless Play – 13th October 2018

Welcome to October, dear friends. As we get ever closer to that spookiest of holidays, Halloween, it becomes increasingly requisite to break out the thrills and chills we find in classic horror video games. Now, obviously, I could recommend to you any AAA powerhouse: Until Dawn, Alan Wake, Fatal Frame, Silent Hill 2… the list goes on. There is a veritable pantheon of formidable horror…

Tölva devs sneak The Light Keeps Us Safe into early access

Strange and terrible mechanical things await you in The Light Keeps Us Safe, the new first-person stealth game from the makers of The Signal From Tölva and the makers of Sir, You Are Being Hunted. The apocalypse has come and here we are, creeping through procedurally-generated landscapes, dodging robots and traps and hoping that our high-tech torch is enough to keep them at bay. It…

Pay what you want to feel bad about killing a monster in Monstrüous

Maybe I shouldn't judge the 'heroes' of Monstrüous too harshly. Maybe theirs is a world where if a sad, misshapen creature appears in the forest and nobody does anything about it, it usually goes on a slaughterous rampage. I don't know what fantasy logic does to the moral reasoning behind preemptive strikes. I do know that Monstrüous is a cute, short puzzle game about figuring…

The cruel and unusual Halfquake mod trilogy returns on Steam

The latest Half-Life mod to resurface, repacked and polished on Steam is Halfquake Trilogy - defining 'masocore' well before I Wanna Be The Guy made it a genre. Halfquake is a trilogy of surreal and cruel puzzle-centric mods by Philipp "Muddasheep" Lehner and they're some of the most interesting maps produced for the original Half-Life. Featuring  striking, abstract environments, genuinely clever puzzles, some very stupid ones…

The harvest-themed Bitsy jam brings all the joys of the autumn season

It’s Halloween month, the days are getting shorter, and the cold is just beginning to creep in. Over in the wonderful world of Bitsy, a development tool that focuses on creating small, explorable worlds, that means that the monthly game jam focused on the theme of Harvest. The result is something wholesome and heartwarming, like a good home-made soup. Grab some hot tea and take…

Shadow Warrior 2 is free on GOG right now

The rude, crude Shadow Warrior 2 is free to grab on GOG for the next two days. Flying Wild Hog's shooter is a big messy slab of old-school FPS'ing infused with painful jokes (which frequently made me giggle), some Borderlands-ish stat juggling, procedural encounter generation and lots of monsters and cyborgs to mulch. Adam Smith gushed profusely in his review, calling it "anarchic, excessive, ridiculous, occasionally spectacular…

Total War: Warhammer 2 adds zombie pirates in next expansion

The next expansion to Total War: Warhammer 2 is to set our spines and timbers shivering alike, as it will add the undead pirates of the Vampire Coast. Creative Assembly today announced Curse Of The Vampire Coast, due to launch on November 8th. It'll add the damned pirates of that cursed coast, who are all fighting to gain control of a giant terrible sea monster.…

Orwell is going free for keepsies for another few hours

Nab it on Steam to register it to your account within the next few hours and it'll be…

Shmup of shmups ZeroRanger shoots for the core, out now with demo

ZeroRanger feels like a lovingly assembled mix-tape featuring the best bits across all of shmup history. Developed by System Erasure and released Friday, it's a vertically scrolling arcade shooter with a striking colour palette, simple control scheme and more knowing nods than a scholars-only metal concert. I spent a bit of yesterday playing it, and while I've not mastered it well enough to call any…

Recently discovered Google easter egg is a browser-based text adventure game

Search engine and all around web giant Google famously love to put hidden features in their products, and a few days ago a new easter egg was discovered: a full text adventure game hidden away in the dev console. The game sees you playing as a “big blue G” and searching for your friends, the other colourful letters that make up the Google logo.

Priceless Play – 29th September 2018

Atop the lofty corridors of the ivory tower there’s an even higher, loftier tower with a sign out front that says, “Critical Theory.” I cannot pretend that academia has ever tried to make itself accessible, despite its cries to the “widening participation” otherwise. The humanities, especially, gets a bad rap for its pages and pages of philosophy books and politics and symbolisms and god, what…

Tactical backstabber I’m Not A Monster infiltrates under the guise of a free weekend

I'm Not A Monster is mostly about mind-games, sometimes shooting stuff with lasers and best when you're a space-lizard chewing a friend's face off. Developed by Cheerdealers and released yesterday, it's a blend of XCOM-style tactics and parlour games like Werewolf. A crew of heroes try to rescue civilians from SPACE DANGER, but two of them are shapeshifting B-movie reptiles. Below, a launch trailer featuring…

Curious Expedition: Rivals is a free-to-play MMOish version of 2016’s best roguelike

"If Spelunky were a slow-paced top-down exploration game, it’d be The Curious Expedition." Adam (sob) said that back when we declared it the best Roguelike of 2016, and I can see where he's coming from: they're both games about weaving stories from procedurally generated calamities. In the beta for Curious Expedition: Rivals, other players can wriggle their way into those stories. I've been exploring new…

Projectile vomit for fun and profit in Pig Eat Ball, out now with demo

Unless something can top a flying pig vomiting tennis balls at a tiger-moth (literally a tiger/moth hybrid) with tennis racquets for wings, then Pig Eat Ball is the wildest game you'll see today. The latest from Nathan Fouts of Mommy's Best Games (Serious Sam Double D, Weapon Of Choice) Pig Eat Ball is a deliriously weird arcade puzzle-maze game which feels like it's from a…

Search the woods for kiddywinkles in lovely free game Knåddskogen

I've had a lovely virtual stroll through Swedish woods today, taking in the beauty and hurling naughty students. Knåddskogen is a wee free game about a teacher who must gather her students after they flee during a hike, vanishing off to climb trees, sleep, build bases, and generally be adorable in a naughty way. It's short, it's free, and it's pleasant, so chop chop, get…

The Crew 2 adds hovercraft and shifts gears for a free weekend and sale

Cars are rubbish, what with their tires and grip and unfortunate habit of sinking in water - hovercraft are clearly better, and ready to ride today in Ubisoft's sandbox drive 'em up The Crew 2. In the Gator Rush free expansion - out now - Ubisoft have added three kinds of hovercraft and a new set of events to drive them in, wherever land meets…

We can now all play Exapunks players’ in-game games for free

Not everyone can hang with the console cowboys in cyberspace; some of us can merely gaze in wonder and astonishment at what keyboard wizards accomplish in Zachtronics games. But if you're not a kewl enough d00d to hack and program in Exapunks, the latest Zachlike, you can now at least play people's created in-game games for free. Zachtronics last night released the TEC Redshift Player,…

Brave a very 80s apocalyptic wasteland in Doom conversion Ashes 2063

Leather-clad raiders with neon green mohawks roam irradiated monuments to capitalism, their acid-spitting lizard-dogs in tow. Ashes 2063, by modder Vostyok is about as 80s an apocalypse can get, even after filtering it through a 2018 iteration of a 90s game engine. It's a free post-apocalyptic FPS (or total conversion mod, if you're old-school) built on the ever-popular GZDoom engine. Its first episode launched yesterday. While…
