Feature: A strategic interpretation

The best Steam Festival demos: strategy games

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “strategy” as “any game that centres puzzle-solving or cerebral thought”. I’ve taken that surprisingly liberal definition, ran off to the Steam Summer Games Festival, and come back with an armful of videogames that vaguely fall under that umbrella. Some of them are definitely skirting the edges and getting their feet wet, but you should play them anyway.Below you’ll find a…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Feature: Oh no there are too many games

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…

Strange indie games to watch from Gamescom 2018

There were a lot of games at Gamescom. A lot of them were good and interesting, but I didn’t get enough time with them to write you thousands of words, or they’re not quite done enough yet. They’re a soufflé that needs more time to rise. But I still wanted to tell you about them, these strange little soufflés in many different flavours. An alternate…

Cosmic adventure game Genesis Noir is on Kickstarter

It takes something special to coax me into playing a point and click adventure game. I've butted my head against puzzles with arbitrary solutions so many times that I've come close to writing the genre off as just not for me, but Genesis Noir has two hooks that draw me in. First, the devs say the puzzles will revolve around simple experimentation, and there's as…

In Genesis Noir, Earth is shrapnel aimed at a god’s heart

Genesis Noir [official site] is a game that takes place "before, during and after The Big Bang", and it stars "a watch peddler stuck in a deterministic hell and "an alluring jazz singer who attracts all who come close", among others. She's called Miss Mass. These are precisely the kind of characters I wish television shows and games were about more often, instead of angry…
