The 25 Best Horror Games On PC

To compile a list of the 25 best horror games on PC is to look into the void for so long that the void not only starts to look back, but shakes you by the hand and takes you out for coffee. It is to fight with monsters until you become a monster and then go on a European railtrip with the other monsters, and…

Feature: You're not ALWAYS right

What’s The Genre You Never Thought You’d Like?

I was certain I'd never have any time for roguelites. To clear up confusion about this most ambiguous of genres, by this I mean games that have permanent or mostly permanent death states, where losing means starting again from the beginning, with finite resources, and not necessarily any end goal. In fact, if you'd asked me a few years back, I'd have said this was…

RPS Asks… What’s The Game You’re The Worst At That You Most Enjoy?

Being bad at something doesn't always mean it's not enjoyable. And that's never more the case than when there's not an opponent to let down or feel crushed by. In the solitary land of single-player video games, it's very possible to be absolutely dreadful at a game and yet adore playing it. Perhaps it's even possible in multiplayer gaming too? For me, the best example…

Have You Played… Teleglitch?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Teleglitch [official site] is one of the most difficult games I've ever played and it might also be one of the best. It plays out like a top-down Doom if Doom were about a terrified survivor of the Phobos incident rather than a…

Top-Down Terror: Noct, Teleglitch And Darkwood

Noct [official site] is a top-down horror game in the tradition of Teleglitch and Alien Breed. It's grainy, thermal-imaged satellite-view is the antithesis of a sedate bird's-eye-view, stripping away tactical oversight and contemplation. Noct is one of several recent games to create a tense and claustrophobic experience by twisting a typically expansive, liberating and distancing viewpoint. We covered it when it arrived on Kickstarter and…

Cult Development: A Paradox Profile

“We don't want to be a cult.” Shams Jorjani is VP of Acquisition and Portfolio Strategy at Paradox Interactive. He's the guy who reads through and listens to a thousand MOBA pitches and occasionally finds a Teleglitch hidden behind them. He laughs at the cult line as soon as its out there. This, after all, is a company that frequently dresses its employees in coloured…

!: Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Seven Year Humble Bundle

We're seven years old! (Actually, we were seven years old last month, but we've never been much for punctuality.) And so by way of celebration we've curated the latest weekly Humble Bundle, and that means we've chosen some of our most beloved indie games from the past seven years for the Pay What You Want sale. An esoteric bunch, but so very beautiful, all. If…

Death Is Cheap: Teleglitch Updates, On Sale

I don't normally post about patches and I don't often post when a single game goes on sale. Teleglitch is an exception though, particularly when the update is as beefy as the one that just landed. As well as tweaking the strength of various weapons and the difficulty of some levels, the patch adds an arena mode, which contains four chapters of challenges that provide…

Teleglitch DLC Offers Musical Death Arsenal

Masterful top-down shooter Teleglitch - which is appalling difficult, and one of my favourite games of the year (or last year, really) - has a DLC, and it's called Guns And Tunes. This is fairly self explanatory: new music to score your inevitable death, and some new guns. There will be right more monster-mincing tools, and you'll even be able to select which of them…

Teleglitch: Die More Edition Is Imminent

It is very important to me that you realise how much affection I have for the brutal lo-fi roguelike shooter, Teleglitch. It's a horrible, atmospheric game that does everything right. It's gruesomely claustrophobic, and ridiculously difficult. It allows you to explore for scraps of the world, letting you bolt things together into makeshift weapons that probably won't - if we're being honest - actually keep…

More Rogue To Like: Teleglitch: Die More

Jim is more pleased than usual. (I totally am! - Jim) Teleglitch, the top-down rogue-like shooter that he personally championed, has been picked up by Paradox. Not only that, but the harsh sci-fi horror game will be expanded upon in the Die More edition, which is a phrase I find rather sinister. Surely you can only die the one time? The rest is basically corpse…

Okay, Teleglitch Is Amazing(ly Hard)

This is the problem: there's too much other stuff. I run a PC games site, and even I missed this one arriving late last year. And I shouldn't have. A top-down, claustrophobic horror-shooter with procedural levels. It's brilliant, horrifying, commanding, excruciating. We've posted about Teleglitch before, of course, but last night the boy Quinns told me that we hadn't written enough about it, and that…

Doom With A (Top-Down) View: Teleglitch

Teleglitch puts you in the shoes of a researcher on Medusa 1-C. It's an ultra-intense top-down version of a shooter you have fond memories of, perhaps Doom or Quake, with the addition of randomly configured levels, desperate ammo shortages and screen-wounding glitches to mark every bullet, blast and bite. It's the work of three indie devs in Estonia and you may remember my coverage of…

Death And Distortion: Teleglitch

I'm not entirely sure if the things attacking me are zombies or if they are just very angry men. They run, I sidestep, they crash into a wall as they attempt to pursue, their turning circles more akin to a small car than a bipedal life form. What are they? Maybe I'll never know but when they surround me, the distinctive sound of being clobbered…
