The Humble Unity Bundle contains some great stories, and the tools to tell your own

While it still bears some reputation as a scrappy little browser-game toolset (and that's no bad thing - it enabled much of the GMTK 2018 jam recently), ubiquitous game development platform Unity has spread to all corners. While I┬ádon't have a single creative bone in my body, the Humble Unity Bundle contains a pile of Unity tools and assets to build your dream game. Even…

Feature: Better story than action

Have You Played… The Final Station?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Final Station is a sidescrolling action game set in a world that's been overrun by inky zombie-like creatures. Luckily, you're just the kind of hero the world needs: a train driver.

Derailed: The Final Station’s Only Traitor DLC adds cars

The Final Station [official site] is a game about a train choo-chooing through a post-apocalyptic world, gathering survivors along the way. Split into two sections - on-train management and off-train exploration and baddy-biffing - it's a side-scrolling survival action game that our Graham found just about pleasant enough. Tomorrow sees the release of a DLC pack called The Only Traitor, which ditches the train in…

The Final Station review

I hate ladders, ladders are my enemy. The world is coming to an end; I am driving a temperamental train to one forsaken town after another; I am rescuing survivors and then mopping up their remains when they expire in my carriage; and I am hunting for the tools to advance amid derelict buildings full of zombie-like silhouette monsters. But it's the ladders in The…

All Aboard the Post-Apocalyptic Choo-Choo: The Final Station Out This August

The Final Station [official site] is preparing for its maiden voyage on August 30. You're the conductor of one of the last running trains after a zombie outbreak has ravaged the earth. Players chug through the wasted landscape, pistol in tow, collecting supplies and survivors, while making sure the undead don't find a way to snack on your face in the process.

Feature: Not-zombies not on a train

Train To The End Of The World: The Final Station Beta

They could have called The Final Station [official site] 'zombies on a train' but they didn't, and I think we should all respect them for that. In any case, the zombies don't really go onto the train itself, and in any case they might be some sort of shadow-ghoul. Don't ask me, I just kill 'em. Or get killed by them. Rather a lot, as…

Ride The Post-Apocalyptic Rails In The Final Station

Society is falling apart as zombies rise and- no, wait, don't scroll past: The Final Station [official site] is interesting! In charge of one of last trains still running, you'll chugga-chugga-choo-choo around a gorgeous grim futureworld, plotting routes and trying to keep your train running by securing supplies. This is where it gets tricky. It's also a shooter, as when the train stops you need…
