Infested Planet Gets New Dynamic Campaigns In DLC

Infested Planet [official site] is a game that actively tries to destroy you. No, really. Thousands of bug-like aliens are out to kill you and they can even mutate as you wipe them out to become better suited to annihilating you. Because they're jerks and that's all they care about. Graham dug Infested Planet in 2014 and if you did too, good news: now it's…

Feature: The Mechanic

How Do Infested Planet’s Mutations Work?

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites a developer to help him put their game up on blocks and take a wrench to hack out its best feature, just to see how it works. It’s about the sweat, grease and genius behind the little things that make games special. Infested Planet [official site] is an RTS that channels Starship Troopers. You control a small…

Pest Control: Infested Planet Gets New DLC

You may remember Infested Planet [official site] from the numerous times we've talked about it: an indie strategy game, amidst the backdrop of pesky aliens and cluster bombs. Sort of like War and Peace in Space. Now the wonderfully named Rocket Bear Games has announced the launch of expansion DLC that will make things even harder for your relentless campaign of death.

Have You Played… Infested Planet

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Infested Planet is a top-down strategy game about warring spray hoses. Your enemies are Starship Troopers-style chitinous bugs who spawn in their hundreds from alien hives. Your own units are fragile marines and stationary turrets who spray bullets. Little by little you advance,…

Infested Planet review

Infested Planet keeps drawing me back. 'I'm not ready to write about it. I need to play it more before I decide what I think.' Then the same thing happens as every other time. I play a mission, and it's not hard exactly, but it is a slog. It's a battle of attrition, territory claimed inch by inch against a skittering mass of Starship Troopers-inspired…

Would Like To Know More: Infested Planet Lands March 6th

John, Craig and I used to meet mulitple times a week in front of a projector screen to watch good films, bad films, action films. Of everything that we watched - Arnold Schwarzenegger's Hercules in New York and The Villain included - no one provided us with more entertainment than Paul Verhoeven. His films were good, bad and action all at once. That's why I…

Feature: Inserting an Aliens quote here would be self-parody by this point

Impressions: Infested Planet Beta

Oh, I do like an RTS where the odds are overwhelmingly in my favour. Which is not to say that I can't get my scabby little bottom handed to me in Starship Troopersesque killathon Infested Planet, but it is such fun to be in control of five little men who can mow down 5000 little aliens without meeting their own maker.

Bugging Out: Infested Planet

Look look look look look look look look. Someone has watched Starship Troopers a dozen times in a row and then, after fondling his chin and scrutinising the grander philosophies of the universe, concluded: "You know what I think? I think: videogame." That person is blessed Canadian Alex Vostrov, of Rocket Bear Games. And the game he made is Infested Planet, which you can see…
