Halloween 2018 Special: round up of very nice things

Well you’re wrong! All our special Halloween features are about nice things today. We are wall-to-wall niceness. Dare I say suffocatingly cute.…

Feature: Low-pressure area

Mellowing out with management games

My body betrayed me last month, trapping me in my bed when it wasn’t sending me rushing to my poor, overworked loo. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t work and so I turned to management games to take my mind off the virus squatting inside me. Juggling budgets, disasters and production chains might not sound particularly relaxing, but there’s also a swathe of low-pressure sims that…

What are we all playing this weekend?

Dear RPS, Hullo everyone! Dashing off a quick postcard from my hols. Ate three sticks of rock for breakfast today. Have started wearing a hat. Sand's everywhere. Margo did it again. Sophia says she's going to kill Judith. Visited the world's largest dairy statue of Alan Shearer; have bought you a lewd souvenir. And you wouldn't believe what we found while diving in the bay…

Fish tycoon Megaquarium splashes out in September

Why did the fish stop arguing with the barnacle? Because she didn’t like to coral. Why did the shark always consult his horoscope? He was the terror of the Pisces. Why was the shipwreck annoyed with its partner? It had crabs. Okay so Megaquarium is a fishkeeping tycoon game from the makers of Big Pharma and it’s coming out on September 13.

Megaquarium – a theme park management with FISH!

FISH FISH FISH FISH! Oh goodness, I have zero chill when it comes to fish. That is going to make writing about Megaquarium [official site] - a theme park management game from Big Pharma creator Tim Wicksteed, where you run your own aquarium - difficult because mostly I just want to tell you everything I think about fish at any given moment. I will try…
