Ratropolis is a tower defence deckbuilder about commanding rats

Like Omori before it, Ratropolis is another game we missed because it snuck out over Christmas. This is much like the rats I used to live with in an old house share, who snuck around every trap we laid down for so long they became like friends. Horrible, noisy friends who'd steal our pasta... Much like all housemates.Ratropolis is also a roguelite tower defense citybuilding…

What’s the best trilogy of PC games?

Hitman 3 is out later this week and if Brendy's review is any indication, it's great. He calls it "as capable and pleasing as its trilogy-siblings," and names the trilogy as a whole, "one of the most fun-loving games of the previous decade." That got me thinking. What is the best trilogy in PC gaming?

HighFleet is a futuristic action-strategy game about giant airborne ships

I love the interfaces in complex military simulations. Tiny bulbs, little switches hidden behind flaps, fuzzy polygons bleeping on a low-res display. I don't actually want to pilot real military vehicles, however, so HighFleet appeals to me a great deal. It's got the aesthetic of a military sim, but it's bent towards a physicsy, action-strategy game about piloting enormous flying boats above a "mysterious future…

Fortnite is adding football kits, but not for my team so whatever who cares

As if a 100-player murderparty weren't reason enough to fight, Fortnite is adding football to the mix. Epic Games today announced they're introducing football kits from 23 teams around the world, bringing the beautiful game's sporting, political, and religious rivalries to the video game. Also I guess you can just take pride in your team, if you want. Local teams represented include Celtic, Rangers, Man…

Started as a MOBA mod, Auto Chess is now spawning its own MOBA

After starting out as a mod for Dota 2, Auto Chess led the brand new genre of auto-battlers to inspire devs including Valve and Riot, then spawned its own standalone game, and now it's coming all the way back round to the start with an Auto Chess MOBA. So its Dota-inspired characters will now star in a Dota-like game. Our industry is a marvel. But…

Ninja Theory’s Project: Mara is set in this photorealistic apartment

Hellblade developers Ninja Theory have released a new dev diary showing off some tech they're using to create the setting for their upcoming horror game, Project: Mara. It's all set in one location that the devs have meticulously recreated by taking 3D scans of a big modern real-world apartment. It's impressive stuff - they've even made procedurally-generated dust to make it look that much more…

Grand theft horse game Rustler rides into early access next month

I hope you're not full up on early access announcements yet because I've got another one for you: Rustler, which has nicknamed itself Grand Theft Horse. This irreverent action sandbox styles itself as an homage to old GTA games with the historical accuracy of Monty Python. If equine heists are your thing, you can find it riding off into early access in February.

Put words in game characters’ mouths with this fascinating text to speech tool

Machine learning is absolutely fascinating and yet I mostly just enjoy when people use impressive tech to create weird skits and memes. That's exactly what everyone appears to be doing with an extremely impressive machine-learning tool that lets you type in text for various characters to say out loud. Want GLaDOS to read you bedtime stories? You can do it. Should Team Fortress 2's Scout…

Cyberpunk 2077’s trailer remade with the Super Mario movie is a wonder and a horror

In this jumbled-up bag of endless remixes we call the cybernet, the most remarkable and awful and great thing I have seen today is Cyberpunk 2077's E3 2018 trailer remade with footage from the live-action Super Mario movie. It's the original Cyberpunk trailer's voiceover combined with footage from the 1993 adaptation which bafflingly put Mario and Green Mario in a dystopian futurecity run by a…

Oh yes, there's another early access crafting survival game on the horizon but hey, this one has vikings. In this Rust 'em up called Valheim you'll be carving out a home for yourself in a "procedurally-generated purgatory" full of supernatural baddies inspired by norse legend. Iron Gate's multiplayer viking romp is storming into early access early next month on February 2nd.

Spaceship looter shooter Everspace 2 is taking off today for its scheduled mission through early access territory. For the sequel to their roguelike spaceflight game, Rockfish Games are cracking Everspace 2 into an open-world RPG. The full game is expected sometime in 2022, but you can hop in the cockpit right now if you're keen to see how it's coming along.

This spooky squirrel surveillance game launches in February

"Ah, what another lovely looking game about photographing animals," I thought to myself upon first glance at Nuts. Look at the beautiful colors. Spot those quirky squirrels. I'm sure it's quite relaxing. How wrong I was. Nuts has announced a February release date for its squirrel surveillance story and there is definitely something sinister going on in this new trailer.

As if I didn't already have a massive backlog of cool stuff to play on Game Pass, Microsoft have revealed that Control arrives on Xbox Game Pass for PC on Thursday. Remedy's spooky interdimensional shooter is already out on Steam, the Epic Games Store and even Xbox Game Pass for console, so it was just a matter of time really. I'm excited to jump back…

Apex Legends explosive new character Fuse arrives in Season 8

I can't believe it's been nearly two years since Apex Legends launched. Back then it had only one map and eight characters. Now the battle royale has three cool maps that chop and change as the seasons go by, and 15 (!) Legends. It's not long now until we meet the 16th either. Today, Respawn gave us all our first look at Fuse, an explosive…

Skyrim’s Enderal mod team are making a new commercial game

The final update arrived for the huge (and hugely impressive) free Skyrim total conversion mod Enderal yesterday. It's a small patch but does bring a bit tease that the developers are now working on a new commercial project. They don't give any hint as to what that might be, but considering the years they've spent with Enderal as well as Oblivion mod Nehrim, it's hard…

Play Otogarden and it’ll help research into musical improvisation

Designed by Costantino Oliva, a lecturer at the University of Malta, Otogarden's a free-to-play game in which you guide a yokai spirit around a musical garden in an attempt to make a nice tune. Have a mosey about the greenery and you'll help him with his research into musical participation in digital games. Even if, like me, you create something truly hideous, at least it's…
