Outer Wilds launches into doomed miniature space today

After watching with an astronomer's practised, patient curiosity for over six years, Mobius Digital have finally launched their grand-yet-personal space adventure, Outer Wilds. Judging by the excited warbling I hear from the RPS treehouse and beyond, it's rather special. A grand but short space adventure (extended by time-loops), set in and around a series of tiny but detailed worlds full of strange and likeable people…

Small Names Take Big Prizes: 2015 IGF Winners

Winners have won, partiers have partied, and another year's Independent Game Festival awards are done. It was a less predictable list of finalists this year than in recent times, and in turn the winners weren't ones you could spot a mile off or who'd already won in years past. I'm happy about that, though it does leave me in the mildly awkward situation of not…
