The Occult Chronicles: Death By Door & Other Humiliations

Reader, I died. I died not in epic battle with nameless gods who threatened the very fabric of reality. I died not freeing an innocent from the curse which consumed her life. I didn't even die fighting a bloody haunted suit of armour or a mad necromancer or something. I died opening a door. I died picking a wrench off the floor. I died from…

Solium Infernum: The Complete Battle for Hell

Normal service resumes tomorrow, at least if four men sleepily trying to remember how to login to our CMS counts as 'normal service'. In the meantime, pray enjoy Gameboys From Hell, one more vintage game diary from the RPS cellars. For just shy of a couple of months in 2009 six arch-demons waged a war in hell. For just shy of a couple of weeks,…

Pitchforked Tongue: Davis On Sol Infernum

RPS' War In Hell is over. The ruler has been decided. But the real ruler of hell remains - and he's Vic Davis. He's Cryptic Comet, and between Solium Infernum and his previous Armageddon Empires, he's positioned himself as the most interesting strategy computer game designer in years. We thought it the perfect time to catch up, discover how Solium Infernum is doing, ask about…

The Complete Gameboys From Hell

For just shy of a couple of months six arch-demons waged a war in hell. For just shy of a couple of weeks, four arch-demons wrote up their perspectives on the struggle. The resulting mass of writing works both as a multi-perspective narrative of a single, increasingly dramatic game, a review highlighting the game's merits and as an extended tutorial of exactly how six newbies…

$5 Off Sol Infernum (Or Armageddon Empires)

Since Bargain Bucket isn't around yet, here's a deal to consider. In the comments thread to the final part of Gameboys From Hell, Vic popped in to say that the talked-about multi-pack deal is probably not going to happen. However... I do love RPS though and I was able to figure out how to create a discount code for $5 US off the price so…

Quinns Reviews Solium Infernum

Hell - now there's a setting for a video game. Hell lets a game's artists and writers run naked and wild and free, and in just-released indie strategy game Solium Infernum it also happens to tease out some hugely intelligent design ideas. I'm glad for that, because it balances out the damage done to my precious brain every time I see footage from Dante's Inferno.…

The Gates of Hell Open: Solium Infernum Out

An lo! there was a cry from the pits. The turn-based-devil-'em-up Solium Infernum is now available to purchase. If you don't want to throw cash down blind - and you probably should at least feel it out - there's a demo available for you to play, which you can get here. To get a feel for the game, here's my first-impression notes, though Tom Chick's…

Hands On: Solium Infernum

I've been craving Solium Infernum all year. It's almost certainly going to be the last of the 2009 Unknown Pleasures to debut before the year wraps up. For those who weren't around back then, Solium Infernum is a turn-based wargame that places you as an aspirant to the throne of hell. And frankly, that's a perfect set-up for a game as I can think of.…
