A Panel Shaped Screen meets thecatamites

Stephen "thecatamites" Gillmurphy is a familiar presence in RPSland. In the past years we covered many of his games, from the blood-soaked RPG Space Funeral to the Kafkaesque Murder Dog. His latest game, 10 Beautiful Postcards, is a wandering simulator about exploring hotels — and like all his games, it's wonderfully weird. But where does this developer get inspiration for his ideas? Are DRUGS the…

10 Beautiful Postcards is a cheery jaunt through thecatamite’s brains

Stephen "thecatamites" Gillmurphy is at it again. 'It' being 'releasing strange, discordant but oddly soothing game-like experiences to enjoy on your computerbox'. 10 Beautiful Postcards is a gentle trip through a baffling, kaleidoscopic world of hotels made out of pixels, plasticine, paper and polygons, possibly making it this year's premiere PPPP title. Is there a goal? Maybe. Is there a story? Kinda. Is it utterly…

Podcast: What counts as a JRPG?

You’d think we could agree on four simple letters. But nothing is ever straightforward on RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. This week the gang are talking JRPGs, or Japanese role-playing games to use some real words for human people. Does a game have to be made in Japan to be defined as an JRPG? Or does it just need some bright colours and lots…

My Favourite Art Style: Space Funeral

Punk’s Not Dead: With Funereal Respect

Good day, children. Did you do your homework like I asked? You didn’t!? You urinated on your homework and then pinned it to the door of a church in a send-up of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses? How very punk. A gold star for you! Oh, look. You’ve eaten your gold star as an angry criticism of society’s hackneyed educational system of reward and punishment. Excellent!…

Anarchist Attorney: Murder Dog

Murder Dog IV: Trial of the Murder Dog is Crime and Punishment as starring a homicidal, humanoid mutt who isn't at all interested in moral justification for his thousands of remorseless kills. It's The Outsider, if Meursault actively enjoyed his act of murder (and was a dog). It's a libertarian rebuke of the modern justice system (starring a dog). It's a liberal treatise against the…

Your tiny hands gripping the controller, your face a slack mask of subservience, your mind transported to worlds so charming and so dramatic that you didn't care if you had to fight for your life every twelve steps. Space Funeral isn't charming, but it's definitely dramatic. How dramatic? The three options in the…
