A traditional hand-painted point-and-click adventure, this time a murder mystery set in a world years after AI was destroyed to prevent the singularity.

Have You Played… Kathy Rain?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. For a moment there, it looked like we might be seeing a resurgence in the traditional point and click adventure. All the big names from the 90s heyday leapt into action, but unfortunately (in hindsight) they all did it via Kickstarter. So we…

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we're doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we've loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

RPS Asks: What Was Your Favourite Game This Month?

We're not even at the halfway point and 2016 is already one of the best years for PC gaming that I can remember. XCOM 2 and Darkest Dungeon already seem like distant memories, and this month alone we've had Kathy Rain, Stellaris, DOOM, Salt and Sanctuary, Overwatch and Total War: Warhammer. Today there's another Hitman episode incoming and after the joy of Sapienza, I can't…

Kathy Rain review

Kathy Rain [official site] is the first adventure from Clifftop Games (Joel Staaf Hästö), the story of a journalism student investigating the strange circumstances of the last few years of her grandfather's life.

Kathy Rain Falls In Two Weeks, Showers Us With Hope

Kathy Rain [official site], one of the smartest-looking AGS adventures that doesn't have the words "Wadjet Eye" on the digital box, is due out in but a couple of weeks - 5th May. And having played a bunch of scenes in a preview build, I've decided to twist dials and flick switches until my brain is set to: Very Interested. You might want to too.

Small Town Blues: Kathy Rain

I played Kathy Rain at Gamescom and now that the first trailer is here, I'm eager to share my thoughts. If I hadn't known it wasn't a Wadjet Eye game, I would have thought it was a Wadjet Eye game. That's the greatest compliment I can give to a point and click adventure in this day and age, and Kathy Rain's grounded small town setting…
