This random city generator is the best thing you’ll randomly-generate today

"hellll yes infinite procedurally-generated city" is the title of the Trello card left in the RPS organisation-o-tron 3000 concerning Wave Function Collapse, and yep, that neatly sums up what I want to say about this. An endless city, one of a kind, created just for you whenever you load the application. Close the application, and that city's gone forever. Maaaaan.

Blast Zone! Tournament is basically Bomberman and free for keepsies on Steam

Blast Zone! Tournament is as close as you can get to Bomberman while still being legally distinct, and Bomberman is always good. Free Bomberman with a big single-player mode, full online and local multiplayer is just grand. Developed by Victory Lap Games, it entered early access last year, and if you grab it by January 16th you get to keep it free forever. From the…

Marble Marcher is what happens when Monkey Ball meets math

Marble Marcher is equal parts mesmerising, fascinating, frustrating and educational - a short, free ball-rolling game by CodeParade, you've got a ticking timer, a goal, and a procedural fractal landscape to somehow navigate across, sometimes shifting and warping under you. It's a bit of a technical marvel despite its mechanical simplicity. Below is a brief look at the game, plus an explanation on the collision…

What Remains Of Edith Finch free on Epic Games Store right now

Fantastic first-person walk-o-story What Remains Of Edith Finch (don't call it a walking simulator) is free for keepsies right now on the Epic Games Store, and I highly recommend nabbing it. It's a beautiful and melancholic tale with a magical realist bent, exploring the lives and deaths of the family who've lived in a strange and lonely house for generations. It's one of the best…

Isotopium: Chernobyl lets you remote-control robots in Ukraine

Two minutes ago, I was controlling a robot in Ukraine. Thanks to Isotopium: Chernobyl, you can too - right from your browser and all. Remote Games have set up a scale model of Chernobyl and populated it with tanks hooked up to the internet. You can jump into one within a minute, though you'll probably only get to play for just as long before you're…

Sonic Mania co-dev pitched a new Darkwing Duck, and you can play it

After giving Sonic the Hedgepig a retro revamp, one of the studios behind Sonic Mania hoped to have a crack at another 90s platformer: Darkwing Duck. Headcannon Studios had hoped to make a new game based on Capcom's 1992 NES platformer, even making a demo and pitching it to the publishers, but Capcom didn't bite. Games are pitched and rejected all the time, of course,…

Space Scavenger is a neat DIY Spaceship builder with a free alpha

"Ooh, that looks a bit like Captain Forever", I thought, when I spotted the Space Scavenger alpha this morning. It's a streamlined take on Forever's DIY spaceship building, where you pile on parts during distinct levels rather than roaming endless void. It's more structured, more relaxing, and fundamentally more limited. It's got good whumphing noises though, and I quite like it.

11:45: A Vivid Life is an intense game of body archaeology

Do you ever think about the human body? Just like, really think about it? About how it’s a complete mess of systems that somehow manage to hold together, even in the face of incredible damage, except that it doesn’t have a super great way of restoring that damage fully, so over your life it becomes a journal of all the especially physically dramatic occurrences you’ve…

Priceless Play – 5 January 2019

It's 2019 now. I know you know that -- it's been 2019 for at least several days or more by the time you are reading this. If you don't know that it's 2019, I hope that it is because by the time you're reading this it's actually 2020 or something equally as wild as the passing of time. In this new year, in this little…

One Step From Eden goes crowdfunding with a challenging demo

Build decks, sling cards, dodge hundreds of bullets - One Step From Eden feels like a clever, twitchy little hybrid of excellent card-battling roguelike Slay The Spire and Capcom's Mega Man Battle Network series. Developer Thomas Moon Kang has taken his deck-building roguelike shooter-thing to Kickstarter, accompanied by a surprisingly difficult and replayable demo on Game Jolt here. Four quick runs through the demo and…

Meditations is a thought-of-the-day calendar for games

The holidays are over, and now we've got to remember how this 'work' stuff goes again - it's stressful stuff. Meditations is like a mindfulness calendar but with games that may help soothe frazzled nerves. Organised by Rami Ismail of Vlambeer, each day the Meditations launcher serves up a short, personal game and a quote to accompany it - a little window into someone else's…

Super Meat Boy free for keepsies on Epic Games Store

Splendidly deadly platformer Super Meat Boy is free to keep on the Epic Games Store if you grab it now. This is the second of the freebies luring people onto Epic's new store since its launch in December 2018, following Subnautica (and if the carrot doesn't work, there's always the stick of exclusive games). For now, hey, if you install Epic's client and register an…

Feature: The Joy of Cooking

Priceless Play – 29 December 2018

I'm sorry, dear reader. I have failed you. I was unable to get this to you in time to save your Christmas dinners. Your beef wellingtons, unwell. Puff pastry, unpuffed. If only you had had this collection of free games about cooking -- only then could your Christmas dinner have been truly spectacular. I am here to rectify my error. There's always New Year's. Now:…

Feature: Let it snow!

Priceless Play – 22 December

I have not, to this day, managed to be in the same place at the same time as a white Christmas. If you have, please, let me know. Is it still possible to snow on Christmas day anywhere south of Duluth, Minnesota? I have many happy memories of building snowmen, tobogganing, and ducking under snow-laden boughs in the backwoods of Virginia. But none of them…

Your files want to smooch in A Desktop Love Story

Here's a free little something to raise a smile before I (mostly) disappear for the holidays - it's a new Nathalie Lawhead game-o-thing! Desktop Love Story is sweet way to spend ten minutes - living on your desktop in two folders are two files. They've never met in person, but the ambiguously_shy_file.exe has a bit of a crush on cute_file.exe, and it's your job as…

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without Dracula Cha Cha

Certain tastes, scents, and experiences can immediately fill a body with Christmasness. Mince pies, mulled apple juice, playing Skeal, hearing Wham's Last Christmas down the Tesco... but it doesn't feel really truly properly Christmas until you've danced the Dracula Cha Cha. What could be more festive than everyone's favourite vampire striding across a world of 1960s pop and pulp culture, collecting presents, using his Dracula…

Quake Champions drops loot boxes and brings back Capture The Flag today

Quake Champions's December update is live, and it's one of the biggest the old-school arena shooter has seen since it entered early access. The much-maligned loot box-based economy of the game is dead, replaced by a linear progression of cosmetic rewards for each character, and extra goodies for those who pick up a Fortnite/Rocket League-styled season pass. They've also brought back Capture The Flag mode…

Today's update adding landscaping, see, letting us editing the ground itself as well as slap down props like buildings, fences, and such;…

Islands Of Nyne: Battle Royale ends development, becomes free

The ferocious battle royale that is the genre itself claims yet another - futuristic last-man-standing shooter Islands Of Nyne is ending production after just a few months in early access. In a sad statement on Steam, developers Define Human Studios say they just can't afford to continue and are pulling the plug on production, but keeping the servers online for the immediate future. The game…
