Feature: One Off The List

The most satisfying physics in PC games

An obscenely rich teenager throws his VR controller across the room in a fit of blind panic while playing Half-Life: Alyx. It leaves the window of his bedroom at 5m/s. It falls 10m vertically and hits his neighbour’s greenhouse, smashing the glass. How many metres did the controller travel horizontally before coming to a stop in the tomatoes? Use a kinematic formula to determine your…

Four whole sexy games made Steam’s top new releases in February

Right out of the oven, here are the hottest new games on Steam from February and boy they are hot indeed. Put those games on the cooling rack and open a window, will you? Games with "sexual content," (in the parlance of professional business speak) do occasionally crack the list of top selling new games but four is quite a feat. There are other trends…

Besiege review

If I had to choose a single incident to sum up my time in physics-y medieval build and destroy ‘em up Besiege, it would probably be the time I got 15 steps into its 33-part guide to making a plane, saw that it was asking me to access the “advanced build” menu, despaired for a second, and then realised that I didn't need a plane…

Deathtrap-builder Besiege rattles out of early access next week

Towns, towers, castles and citadels. Physics-nonsense siege 'em up Besiege has taken down all sorts, but now it's time to break the toughest wall of all - early access itself. After five years of building up its bloody machinations, developers Spiderling Studios are ready to smash their war machine into full release on Tuesday the 18th, packing some nifty new automated components and an entire…

7 toylike games to play during the winter holidays

Happy holidays! Time to see what’s in your stocking. Oh, it’s another copy of The Golf Handbook (Third Edition). And some toenail clippers. Great. No, honestly, that’s fine. It’s not like little Jemima over there is dashing about in her cool lion slippers, making you ache for an era of innocence and novelty that you can never revisit. And who cares if she’s clashing her…

Besiege announces multiplayer and level editor

Multiplayer and a level editor are coming to physics-based warmachine workshop Besiege [official site] later this year, developers Spiderling Games have announced. The Besiege Multiverse will let up to 8 players fight each other's creations, compete to complete objectives, play cooperatively, or simply lark about in a murderous sandbox. The level editor will also be part of the Multiverse and, yes, let players build levels…

Feature: A post-microtransaction-apocalypse

Premature Evaluation: Crossout

Every week we dispatch Brendan to scour the post-apocalyptic wastes of early access and scavenge whatever games he can find. This week, he returns with multiplayer car combat game Crossout [official site]. Crossout is an action game about building a terrifying car made out of swords and skulls and then driving around the wasteland, pumping other drivers full of lead. It has a soundtrack made…

Feature: Cannon Fodder

Premature Evaluation: Besiege

Each week Marsh Davies hurls himself at the colossal walls of Early Access and comes back with any stories he can find and/or soaks the earth with the blood of his fallen foes. This week he is catapulted into Besiege, a beautiful, physics-based, build-your-own-ballista game. Dr Blam is a killing machine. He does not have a medical licence. What he does have is a trio…

Build-A-Murder-Machine Workshop: Besiege

Besiege's war machines would only appear in a history book if a bored schoolchild scribbled them in the margins - little pencil machines bristling with blades and flamethrowers whirl through stick figure armies leaving trails of red Biro. It's a physics puzzler about piecing together pistons, hinges, blades, bombs, saws, spikes, cannons, wheels, wings, and other bits into death machines able to annihilate armies, crush…
