Feature: Apes out

Streets Of Rogue review

The streets are in chaos. There is a police officer beating a slum dweller. A red-shirted gangster has started an ill-advised stabbing match with three members of a rival blue gang. And an ape, recently escaped from captivity, is calmly watching it all, unable to speak the language of these terrible people. Amid such bedlam, what do you do as a player of Streets Of…

Streets Of Rogue emerges from early access in search of a hat

Have You Played… Streets of Rogue?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Accidental death simulators are wonderful. In Streets of Rogue, you can slip on a banana peel and set off a land mine. You can hack a computer and get caught by a policeman, who’ll cave your head in. You can set a bunch of stuff on…

Premature Evaluation: Streets of Rogue

Every week we send Brendan out to the slums of early access to see what goodies he can find in the rubbish bins. This time, the absurd chaos of Streets of Rogue [official site]. “You better pay this back,” said the bartender as I took the money from him. I left the bar in silence and went looking for some cocaine. It’s not often you…

Emergent Antics In Streets Of Rogue’s Free Alpha

"I played it very briefly and made a bunch of idiots kill one another by dropping rage poison into the ventilation system outside their hideout," Adam tells me about the free alpha for Streets of Rogue [official site]. It's almost enough to make me stop grumbling that Streets of Rogue isn't a roguelikelike beat 'em up. Instead, it's some sort of stealth-o-action top-down 2D game…
