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…

Feature: The cats, humanity's absolute best mate

Priceless Play – 22nd September 2018

I got two cats last month and I am obsessed with them. While I’m currently fostering them (and let me take this moment to suggest that you, too, foster some cats because it is life-saving) they are driving me insane. Because they’re, you know, cats. They run around at all hours of the night, they knock over my plants, and they always want to know…

Be expendable in parodic platform RPG Underhero, out now with a demo

A wise man once mused "If only you could talk to the monsters" - in Underhero you can because you are one too, albeit low-level and underpaid. Unfortunately, if you want to get out of a fight (using a charming Paper Mario-inspired combat engine) in this parodic platform RPG hybrid, you'll have to bribe your way past your peers. Life is hard at the bottom…

Motor-sportsball “MOBA” Heavy Metal Machines powerslides out of early access

As I slam the nitro, swerve around a missile into the final corner and fling the ball into the enemy goal, I realise the just-launched Heavy Metal Machines is no MOBA, and that's a good thing. Hoplon's quirky genre-blending vehicular sportsball game has been available in early access for a while now, but yesterday it launched in full, and is free-to-play. Despite the developers calling…

Boo! Rusty Lake release Cube Escape: Paradox and short film

I'm calling it: Halloween season starts now. I've just hung a spooky lantern in the hallway and the spooky-ooky Rusty Lake gang today released not only a new altogether kooky adventure game but a live-action short film too. Ghost time is go. Cube Escape: Paradox is out now, offering its first chapter free so we can all try on the shoes of a detective trapped…

Super Pilot is F-Zero with a level editor and out now in early access

Super Pilot is classic Nintendo racer F-Zero (either X or GX is up for debate) with a level editor, and developers Dopagames don't care to hide that at all. Race around at a thousand miles an hour against dozens of bots, defy gravity, shoot off the track and explode in a cloud of flaming glory, and then build your own tracks to do it again…

Verlet Swing swooshes out today

I've had fun swinging around New York this past week, but I'm ready to move on to somewhere more exotic. Pretending to be a super-strong man-spider hybrid with a supernatural sense of danger just feels so... tame. Fortunately I've come across Verlet Swing, a grappling hook game where you hurl yourself through a fever dream of floating pizza slices, majestic goldfish and malteasers. The full…

Thriker! FIFA 19 demo released

I return from my week off work to discover that I have evidently replaced our departed Adam (RPS in peace) as the RPS Football Correspondent, because none of these squares mentioned that a free demo for FIFA 19 launched on Thursday. I've ironically become less interested in digital ballkicking since I started going to matches again (mon the Hibs!) but I appreciate some will want…

Skeletal Dance Party bops out this Halloween

As reanimated corpses go, these skeletons don't seem particularly malicious. But they do have trumpets. I've spent the past 15 minutes hopping about in the demo for Skeletal Dance Party, an upcoming dungeon crawling bopping adventure from Catalope Games. I've taken my first steps towards organising the biggest party the world has ever seen.

Take a wander through dozens of artworks in The Zium Garden

What, exactly, is a Zium? Well, there is a definition available: “1. a virtual gallery game, composed of eclectic and wonderful things. 2. (kind of like a zine, but the museum version).” But it's best to see if for yourself by taking a trip through The Zium Garden, the latest curation from the project’s creator Michael Berto. You can get a feel for the huge…

Feature: Crunchy leaves and cold air and hot cocoa

Priceless Play – September 15th 2018

Since moving to California, I find myself missing the seasons. I grew up in Virginia, where the leaves change colour every September. When living in England, there was a yearly rotation of scarves and heavy coats to mark the coming of autumn. It seems silly to complain about the year-round temperate climate that blesses the beachy shores of SoCal, but it gets pretty boring here…

Befriend and battle magical monsters in charming RPG Heartbeat, out now

Developed by tiny outfit Chumbosoft, Heartbeat is a cute JRPG that looks bit Pokémon, but has a lot of Shin Megami Tensei spirit to it, giving it a slightly more 'grown-up' edge. It's set in a high-tech but magical world where humans live alongside cute (and sometimes not-so-cute) talking magical monsters called Mogwai. Eve, a young Conjurer and her cat-Mogwai friend Klein set out on an errand…

Right now, anyone with a Battle.net account can download the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, due to open tomorrow at 10am Pacific (6pm BST). Those who preordered the game can start playing today, but if you've more time than money there's another option.…

A Hat In Time’s new DLC is free today and turns up the heat on an arctic cruise

A Hat In Time might play second fiddle to Super Mario Odyssey these days, but there's strong praise in that faint damning. Gears For Breakfast crafted a cheerful, bouncy little romp of a platformer, full of shiny gubbins to grab and strange characters to meet. It's just a little on the short and easy side - or was. Seal The Deal adds another story chapter…

We Were Here Together makes the co-op puzzler series a trilogy next year

Go dig in the Antarctic, they said. See the sights, they said - all there is down here is a cursed castle and a creepy clown. Announced today and due out in early 2019, We Were Here Together is the third in Total Mayhem Games's We Were Here series of first person co-op puzzlers. Played online, two players explore a frozen, lost castle, separated and…

Live three days of surreal plague-stricken hell in Pathologic 2’s free public alpha

Bleak, harrowing and frustrating are the first words I think of when Ice-Pick Lodge's Pathologic springs to mind - followed quickly by entrancing, alien and compelling. Originally Kickstarted as a remake, the now-reimagined plague survival immersive sim Pathologic 2 is shaping up to be something special. Not convinced? If you don't mind some bugs, you can try it out today. Earlier in development, Ice-Pick released The Marble Nest,…

Battlefield 1 goes cheap as chips and its DLC Premium Pass is free to keep this week

Battlefield 5's open beta is over, but the battle for objective points is eternal. As promised last week, EA have made the DLC Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free today and for the next week. You'll need the game itself to use it, but it expands the (questionably) historical World War 1 FPS from 12 multiplayer maps to 26, featuring new classes, vehicles and weaponry.…

Uncover a conspiracy of blood in Sol Hemochroma

As summer gets to be just about done here in the northern hemisphere, you might be wondering how all those warmer months passed by so quickly. Sol Hemochroma will probably make you feel better about staying inside so much, though, as it follows a group of teenagers trying to make the most of their dwindling school break and instead stumbling upon a blood-soaked small-town conspiracy.

Feature: Workers of the world, unite (and play)

Priceless Play – September 8th 2018

In the United States, the first Monday in September is Labor Day -- a day to celebrate workers, and all the strides that working unions have made. Like many other Americans, I work on Labor Day. Freelancers work on Labour Day. Those in the service industry work on Labor Day. And though there are many calls to “remove politics from games,” (I honestly have no…

Battlefield 5’s open beta starts tomorrow and preloading is available now

Keep it on the down-low, but I hear that there's a new Battlefield game coming soon. Even more shocking, this 'Battlefield 5' will be running a free open beta, starting tomorrow. No, really - I heard it on the grapevine. Better yet, you can start preloading it now if your connection threatens to buckle under a 12.5 gigabyte download on the day. Don't say we…
