Steam Summer Sale recommendations: 2018 edition!

The old quote is wrong: neither death nor taxes are, it seems to me, as terrifyingly certain as the Steam Summer Sale. Yes, once more we can add to the heap that is our backlog by buying games for, what, five quid, on average? But there are so many to choose from that it's easy to get flustered, so who better than the staff of…

You rise to glory by possessing other monsters and stealing their abilities, working your way up the dungeon food chain until eventually usurping the dungeon boss himself.

Futuristic Adventure Read Only Memories Is Out Now

Wearing its cyberpunk, retro point-and-click adventure game influence on its neon-stained sleeve, Read Only Memories [official site] wants to send you into the future to become a struggling freelance journalist. Living as one in the present, I can assure you it's not the most glamorous of lifestyles, but if you wish to time travel to Neo-San Franciso 2046AD to find this out for yourself you…

Read Only Memories: Cyberpunk Adventure Gets A Demo

Read Only Memories is a cyberpunk adventure in which you're bidden to talk-look-use your way through Neo San Francisco in search of a kidnapped friend by a robot who may be sentient or may only be self-improving. As someone who may be neither, I can tell you that the Kickstarted game now has a demo, a new trailer and a release date, and all are…
