Feature: Listen or you'll miss out

Podcast: The games you might have missed in 2019 so far

 You can’t play everything. Trust us, we’ve tried. You can’t even take note of all the games that come out in one week. Our mushy human brains can barely keep track of why we’re standing in the dairy aisle. Was it milk we're low on? Or butter? Yoghurt? Hang on, I'm vegan. What am I doing here? Anyway, you’re bound to have missed a…

Podcast: Our proudest gaming achievements

 Life is hard and so are videogames. So when you do a tough thing, take pride. It doesn’t matter if it seems like a small step for other people, if it’s a big step for you, go ahead and puff your chest out. But do it quickly, for heaven’s sake. We’ve only got an hour. This is the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show,…

Objects In Space review

There are asteroids clanking against the hull. I can’t see them because my spaceship’s cockpit doesn’t have a window. But I know they’re out there. The radar says so. There goes another one. Clank. The computer bleeps at me sadly. Light hull damage, it says. Finally, the clanking stops and my jaws unclench. We’ve cleared the asteroid field. Time to deliver some rare vids to…

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell’s 5 best games of 2018

If my 2018 was the year “of” anything, it was surely the year of knowing your place. The games I've picked out in hindsight are united by the idea of understanding how you fit into a complex world - appreciating the intricacy of the variables and relationships that surround every given moment, whether your overall aim be to subdue them or just survive them. That…

Premature Evaluation: Objects in Space

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s hauling cargo across pirate-infested star systems in space sandbox Objects in Space. It’s so quiet I can hear the dog breathing as he naps in the hallway. I’ve turned the in-game music player off, killed the power to every component on the ship and I’m hurtling through…

Objects in Space blasts off early next year

Not long now until you get to sit in the cockpit of your own floating Cold War submarine-inspired spaceship, because Objects in Space [official site] is coming out early next year. Before now it didn't have a publisher, but 505 Games have decided to bite. If you haven't heard about it before, it's an open-world "stealth-action" space game that thinks the ships in other space trading…

Alt.Ctrl.GDC: a joyful celebration of brilliant controllers

One of the best, most joyful parts of GDC is Alt.Ctrl.GDC – the section of the show floor dedicated to alternative control methods for games. This year was no exception and I played games using a laser lyre, a box of sand and a bookshelf to name but a few. I think my personal favourite might have been the Calvin and Hobbes-inspired Spacebox [official site]…

A Look Inside The Objects In Space Cockpit

Objects In Space [official site] is the upcoming space trading game from Metrocide developers Flat Earth Games. They've just revealed the game's first footage trailer that labels it a "stealth space trading game where you'll navigate your ship as though it were a submarine, instead of fly it like it were a plane." In practice, this means far less outlandish physics in the skies and…

Low-Fi Space Trading: Objects In Space

It's awfully exciting when spaceships zip blasting their zapguns and looping de loop, but if you like your space action tense and preferably entirely avoided, you might fancy keeping an eye on Objects in Space [official site]. It's a space trading game heavy on long-range encounters and stealth, more lurking nuclear submarines than dogfighting aircraft. All we have to go on for now is a…
