Build your own glitched driving track in Need 4e+9 Speed

Driving games are by their nature chaotic, but that’s something of an understatement for Need 4e+9 Speed. Not only are you and up to three pals building the track underneath you as you go, casting colourful ribbons all about the place, there’s two very important dedicated buttons: Glitch and Horn.

American Election is a harrowing political horror

American elections take exactly one hundred years, and by the final day everyone's so sick of it that they just vote for the most recognisable name to get it over with. American Election, on the other hand, is a work of interactive fiction that estimates its own run time at one hour, but if you're anything like me you'll take at least two, and then…

A Plague Tale: Innocence now has a demo

That One Game With The Brilliant Rats, aka A Plague Tale: Innocence, now has a demo so we can all admire the rats. And maybe be drawn into the story of kiddywinkles sneaking through France during the Black Death, pursued by the Inquisition and surrounded by ravenous rats. Even our Alice Bee, who is known to feel nothing for the awful digikids we're forced to…

An Afternoon Rippling wants to take you on a very peculiar hike

An indie fusion band invites you to practice in the shallows of a lake. Two stoners ask for advice in a chess game. Partygoers deep in a cave believe they hear a ghost when you talk. I haven't been hiking in a long, long time, but if this is what it involves these days then maybe it's time to strap on those walking boots. If…

Find your way through the strange world of Caged Bird Don’t Fly

It is a shame that I can’t fit the full title of caged bird don’t fly caught in a wire sing like a good canary come when called into the title of this post, because it is excellent. It’s also a lovely little explore ‘em up of a game, from which you may take all sorts of meaning or may just find a neat diversion…

Abzû is a calm and colourful undersea adventure with lots of pretty sealife to gawp at. The End Is Nigh is a platformer with hundreds upon hundreds of deaths awaiting you.

Feature: Free games of the week to tide you over

Priceless Play – 31 August 2019

Greetings, all! It's the end of August, and so, these dog days are over. The temperatures might remain warm well into September, but do not be fooled: autumn is on its way. It has been one year since I started writing Priceless Play, carrying the baton for Free Games of the Week. I love it! Bringing you weird writing on weird games week after week…

Inside and Celeste are free on the Epic Games Store now

"Inside does insert some big ideas into its slender and sinister frame, but that's not why I loved it – it's the execution of the big, broad, b-movie elements that I adored," our former Adam (RPS in peace) said when we called Inside one of 2016's best games. "It's a tricky platform game, with a beautifully melancholy story, and enough creativity on show to give…

Dirt Rally is free for keepsies right now

You love cars? You love mud? Your twin desires combine in Dirt Rally, the 2015 Codemasters race 'em up which is currently free for keepsies on the Humble Store. They launched their 'End Of Summer Sale' today and are slinging keys around (Steam, not car) to tempt you into taking a look. Codies did launch Dirt Rally 2 earlier this year but that one's £45,…

Wee free game Fishbones is a five-minute journey down, down, down to the depths, offering five minutes to see what we can see in the sea before the end of you and me. What we do see is a strange and often surreal assortment of sealife,…

Explore a pretty pastel city in Drive Me To The Moon

I didn’t understand the appeal of driving around for the fun of it until the exact moment that I laid eyes on Drive Me To The Moon, a game which is all about cruising the open road with your girlfriend in the passenger seat. Suddenly, yes, I would quite like to just hop in a car and explore around here. And maybe get out to…

Stones Of Solace offers up a free daily crafting ritual

Just looking at ritual crafting game Stones Of Solace lowers my blood pressure. The fuzzy, dreamlike edges to the items. The daily shifting of the colour palettes. The gentle, beach-y music to keep you company. It’s all a much-needed breath of fresh air on a hot weekend. Here is a very pretty trailer to soak in.

Feature: Games of mourning and melancholia

Priceless Play – 24 August 2019

Whenever I go a week without writing a Priceless Play, my head goes a little fuzzy. It has become a part of my weekly routine and when I take a week off here and there to tend to other writing commitments, I feel a little lost. When I load itch.io back up again, my fingers feel a little clumsy, as if I have lost the…

Free hat game! Fez is free on Epic’s Store right now, with Celeste and Inside coming next week

You could put together a decent indie games showcase for nothing just by loading the Epic Games Store and clicking a button. The current freebie on there is Polytron's excellent, world bending puzzle-platformer, Fez. It's definitely worth the zero doubloons they’re asking for it. In fact, it’s worth at least 100,000,000 times that. Fez is great.

Anno 1800 has a demo, but only for one week

Ubisoft have launched a week-long demo for Anno 1800, the latest in their city 'n' empire-building game. You've got until Monday to play a Victorian coloniser, wearing silly hats and ruthlessly exploiting resources and people for capital gain. And in the game. It is weird for a demo to be limited in both quantity and time, given how many week-long full-game trials we see these…

Feature: In on the ground floor

The Basement of Curiosity: Season One – recap and index

Dwarf Fortress might be the most interesting game ever made. It might even be the best. But it’s certainly not the most accessible. It looks weird, its control scheme appears to be lifted from some sort of alien church organ, and a good proportion of its features are in fact collisions between the many, many bugs that have sprung up in its thirteen-year development history.…

Mutant Year Zero and Hyper Light Drifter free on Epic Games Store

Another week, another free game on the Epic Games Store - two, even. Until next Thursday you can grab the tip-top tactical action of Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and the top-down zip-zoom explore-o-action of Hyper Light Drifter for free. MYZ is a wild freebie, both because it came out less than one year ago and because it's chuffing lovely. Our former Alec (RPS…

Dwarf Fortress Diary: The Basement of Curiosity – End of Season One

Surprise! This is the end of the first season of the Basement of Curiosity - but it’s not the end of the story. The series is taking a break… but only because Nate needs to get ready to go and chat with Tarn Adams, the creator of Dwarf Fortress, on Sunday 1st September. Read on to find out more... -- On the last day of…

Hearthstone: Uldum quests ranked by fun

After each new Hearthstone expansion lands, there’s a golden period where mediocre players like me get to play with all the big, fun, silly new cards. It never lasts forever: before long, the good decks become known, and we must all netdeck away under the ghastly lash of The Meta, or fade away into the Elysian fields of PvE. But for a short while at…

Feature: The tiniest slice of the Game Maker's Toolkit Jam 2019

Priceless Play — 10 August

The Game Maker's Toolkit Jam is, according to itch.io, the largest jam on its website. Wow! That sounds... overwhelming. The 48-hour jam is focused on "design, mechanics, and clever ideas" and ran from the 2nd of August to the 4th. There are nearly 3,000 entries and there's no way anyone is going to be able to accurately cover all of them in a sustainable timeframe.…
