Steel Rats rolls out a demo and a discount

Motorcycle combat platformer Steel Rats now has a demo (and is half price until February 14th), so you can try it for yourself instead of just being baffled by that combination of words.

Steel Rats pits biker gangs against the robopocalypse

Interesting post-apocalyptic bike combat/platforming game Steel Rats was first announced in October of last year (accompanied by an oddly cut CGI trailer) - we've got the first official gameplay footage within, showing off just how much you can do on two wheels.

Phoenix Point will be playable at EGX Rezzed

Our corporate siblings who run EGX Rezzed go on about how it's a games show with all sorts of video games to play and talks to hear, but in reality it's a front. Rezzed exists because we believe you will pay money to breathe the same air as RPS staffers, getting some of our air inside you and some of yours in us, but both…
