Primarily we're talking violence-free games here, but I…

Urban Chaos: Games And The Untameable City

What they are, on what terms we relate to them and how they behave. Thomas McMullan explores how game mechanics attempt to make sense of cities. French detectives, shopping centres and terrorist…

The Bestest Best Being Pleasantly Lost Of 2014: Bernband

Give up on trying to find your way around Bernband's neon alien futurecity. Give in to wandering, see where your tippy-tappy feet and the turbolifts take you. One minute's wandering might take you through a bustling club, over a bridge with hovercars zipping past, to a horrible trumpet performance, then bumping into an alien weeing in a corner. Variety is the spice of life, They…
