Feature: Persistence, persistence, persistence

Priceless Play – 23 May 2020

My dad isn't like most dads. There are many things about him which make him unique, but perhaps none so idiosyncratic as this: the man really, really, really loves Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States. I'm not sure how many children have been taken on car trips to Coolidge's homestead in rural Vermont (where, fun fact, Coolidge was sworn in as president following…

The Migration is a lovely little apocalypse

Since I've ended up incoherently semi-shouting this at several people recently (sorry, Nat), I'll save myself the time and write it down: Connor Sherlock's The Migration feels to me like witnessing an apocalyptic event, and it's great. There you are, wandering around the surface of some desolate world, only bleached bones and warbling synth for company, when the end comes. Or a beginning. Or... a…

Civilization VI is free on the Epic Games Store right now

The latest giveaway on the Epic Games Store is a doozy: Civilization VI, for free, for keepsies. I'm pretty sure some countries consider handing out free Civ to be an act of economic terrorism, for encouraging innumerable late nights and sick days in people who couldn't resist the siren call of just one more turn. The turn-based strategy game may be almost four years old…

Bee management sim Hive Time gets even better with new update

I watched Hive Time's development last year with barely restrained joy, but then it came out on the same day as the election and, well. Things happen, you know?It is a delightful little game about building a hive of bees, and I am entirely covered in bruises from kicking myself for putting off writing about it for so long. But happily, it's just been updated,…

That bizarre Fighting Fantasy FMV game now has a demo

Remember that weird FMV game Deathtrap Dungeon: The Interactive Video Adventure that came out a couple weeks ago? Well, it has a free demo now that you can play in your browser.

Feature: Games of magic and mundanity

Priceless Play — 9 May 2020

I was talking to a friend of mine recently, who told me that quarantine is full of "bad days and medium days." I think that's a pretty glass-half-full way of looking at it: aim any higher, and you'll be disappointed. Shoot for medium, and you might be pleasantly surprised. I hope your quarantine is averaging out to medium, and you're pullin' through.Here, for your medium…

Oh dear, Cannibal Cuisine looks like Overcooked but cannibals

Yell at yer friends in 1-4 player co-op while working under time pressure to serve up meals to an unforgiving god in Overc—er sorry, Cannibal Cuisine. It's certainly got a familiar vibe to it, so if you liked the frantic food prep of that other friendship-ender perhaps you'll like doing it with a new secret ingredient: tourists. Cannibal Cuisine is launching later this month but…

Legends Of Runeterra review

"Games are a series of interesting decisions". That Sid Meier quote has been floating around for nearly a decade, and writing it out nowadays can seem pat. "Of course they are!", you might say, or possibly "of course they're not!". Personally, I find it a helpful way of thinking about why I enjoy most of the games I play. Generally speaking, the more interesting the…

Swallow The Sea is a short free tale of birth, hunger, and gnawing teeth

The sea's a pretty messed up place, ain't it? A vast, practically-bottom expanse of mother nature's weirdest and deadliest experiments, piled in together and told to work it all out themselves. A short, pay-what-you-want release from devs Maceo Bob Mair and Nicolás Delgado, Swallow The Sea (available on Itch) captures that horror by following a hapless bundle of eggs just trying its best to be…

Feature: Game jams for indoor-types

Priceless Play – 2 May 2020

When you're cooped up inside all day long (for forty-five days and counting), making a game can make for a good distraction. There have been more than a few quarantine-related game jams, each with their own themes and concepts. Isolation, social-solidarity, and "stay home" are common, and when the historians look back at the prolific game dev output of 2020 it won't be too hard…

Auto Museum 64’s free parking lot is packed with stylish 90s racers

Take a drive down memory lane with me, readers. For this weekend's field trip, we're heading to Auto Museum 64, a free "educational showcase" of late-90s game art - a fascinating study of the Nintendo 64's slickest racecars, rally trucks and high-performance hovercraft brought together under one roof. Get there early, mind. Parkins spaces fill up fast.

Feature: You only have five more days to play one of these

Priceless Play — 25 April 2020

Hey there, Priceless Gang. How are you doing? Are you getting enough sunlight? Going for your government-sanctioned walks? The weather has been getting warmer here in California, but the beaches are still closed. Sometimes I will walk all the way to the beachfront balustrades, give the ocean a little nod, and then turn around and walk back home. It's nice to see that it's still…

Censorship, cybersex and sheep at LIKELIKE’s Online Museum of Multiplayer Art

After dabbling in curated Bitsy exhibitions, Pittsburgh indie collective LIKELIKE have brought a new show to their low-res gallery. The Online Museum of Multiplayer Art opened its doors last night, a collection of social experiments and collaborative folk rituals. If the last exhibition captured the feeling of discovering hidden gems on a convention floor, this week's gallery encourages you to finally strike up a conversation…
