Below surfaces today

It's the RPS/Gamer Network annual day of chest-thumping/excessive consumption/enforced PowerPoint-watching, so we'll all be offline when Capy's much-anticipated rando-dungeon-runner Below launches this evening. Hence, let's say this now: Below's out today! Somehow! After half a decade! Is that even a long time in games development any more? I don't know I've been here 11 years so it feels like Below only got announced like, last…

Below is out at last next week after five years (what a surprise)

Very pretty/entirely menacing rand-o-dungeon-o game Below has been tantalising us from a distance for half a decade. "It'll never happen!", bellowed Derek Misery from a Twitter account with 12 followers, sometime in 2016. Well, suck it up, Derek - all of a sudden, the closest thing there is to a follow-up to peerless adventure/musical odyssey/exploratory crisis Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is out in seven…

Below is absolutely real despite what you may believe

The video game Below is absolutely going to happen. I know you can't read my tone here but I am using my most Serious Voice. It's probably coming out now. It may already be out. Who knows? Maybe we've already played it together and had a wonderful time. Do you remember that night? We all shared secrets and ate crisps. I had too many beers…

Going Underground: Capy’s Below Delayed

Every day for eight weeks you've leapt out of bed beaming. "Hello, birds!" you trill to the stump-legged pigeons fighting over a kebab wrapper on your windowsill. "Hello, sky!" you cry to the clouds. "Hello, fork!" you yell, waving at the fork you've just trodden on. Nothing can put a dent in your day: it is summer, which means today could be the day Below…

It’s Upon Us: Capy’s Below Coming This Summer

Sword & Sworcery is one of my favourite games ever, and Super Time Force was great fun, so I'm terribly excited for Capy's next project, the dark and mysterious explore-em-up Below. [official site] Jim Guthrie (Sword & Sworcery, Indie game: The Movie) providing the soundtrack is really just the icing on this delicious cake. And a new trailer reveals we're going to be able to…

Bel-oh That’s Lovely! Below’s Gamescom Trailer

We've been pleasantly puzzled by Below since Capy announced it. The game's beautiful, but what is it? The Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery and Super Time Force folks have spoken vaguely about it being a roguelike-like with plenty of exploration and permadeath--and a game suited for PC--but watching the Gamescom trailer demonstrates an important detail. You can carry a shield and hit things with a sword…

Rising From The Depths: Capy’s Below Coming To PC

I wouldn't be writing about Below on RPS if it weren't coming to the PC, because in spite of the many, many, oh-so-very-many emails from marketers and PRs about iOS hidden object games (and the occasional moment of writer's prerogative), this is mostly a PC site. So we haven't mentioned Capy's Below until now, because it was tied up in Xbox Xclusivity. That's changed, as…
