The 20 best survival games on PC

Ever since Minecraft got us hooked on surviving its deadly nights and sinister, snickering foes over a decade ago, there have been wave upon wave of new survival games to scratch our deepest masochistic itches. Attempting to tackle them all at once, however, would probably lead to an early grave, so we've put together this list of the very best survival games on PC to…

We asked developers: what would you gift the games industry?

We ask the tough questions here at RPS. We’re like Jeremy Paxman but in a very long bear costume. We once asked 15 developers what they’d do if they were stuck in a room with a clone of themselves. This is important stuff. Today, we ask another question: What would you gift the games industry for the holidays? We put this query to a bunch…

How Kenshi’s world is designed not to care about you

You’re not the hero in Kenshi. You’re not the chosen one. There’s nothing out there for you to save - other than your own skin. You’re just another inhabitant of a huge open world that doesn’t care about you. That’s its magic, and it takes design to create a world so exquisitely uncaring. Merry Christmas, everybody!

Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talks Frostpunk, Destiny 2 and Middle Earth: Shadow of War

It's warm! Luckily the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, have come together to talk cold games, like chilly survivalist city-builder Frostpunk. That's because Adam is back from E3 and can tell us (Brendan and Pip) all about it. He's also played Destiny 2 and Middle Earth: Shadow of War, the lucky sod. Spill the beans, Adam! No wait, don't. We need those. This week's…

Revenge Of The Bundle: IndieFort

Emergency! Emergency! The world is running out of words to put after 'indie' when coming up with new pay-what-you-want bundle titles. Gamersgate have opted for 'fort' as theirs, with that perhaps unintended sideeffect that when I think IndieFort I picture a castle wearing a checked shirt and some black-framed plastic spectacles. Oh well! The roster of included games is fairly impressive in this one, and…

Visit Not-Japan Today: Kenshi

Kenshi's alpha version launches today, which is excellent news because when I first wrote about it I'm sure lots of people thought, "This open-world, unscripted RPG sounds brilliant but I'd wager it'll never exist in any playable form, so thanks for getting my hopes up, you swine." Turns out I'm not a swine. The alpha is far from complete, as explained with detailed honesty here,…

Seven (Hundred) Samurai: Kenshi

It’s becoming increasingly common for ambitious indie projects to invite people into their unfinished worlds, for a price, so that developers can gather feedback and funding. The latest title I’ve spotted that’s hoping to take this approach is Kenshi, a single player "free-roaming squad based RPG” that plonks the player into the sandals of an everyman samurai. It’s at a very early stage but Lo-Fi…
