Feature: The kids are alright

Children Of Morta review

Games about families are pretty uncommon. Ignoring the state of games about dads (because they're about dads, not families, which is sort of accidentally on point), can you even name the parents of more than a couple of game characters? There are probably more about orphans than about someone who, even in passing, has parents. Children Of Morta is all about the family. It's a…

This War Of Mine and Moonlighter are both free on Epic this week

Epic Games started out giving away one free game per fortnight to lure people into their new Store. Then they moved to weekly giveaways. Now, this week, they have two games free for keepsies. I don't know where this acceleration of freebies ends, but I can tell you that you have seven days to grab This War Of Mine and Moonlighter.

Try the Children Of Morta demo before it vanishes on Saturday

It wasn't until I tried Dead Mage's action roguelite Children Of Morta myself that I understood what John Walker said about it last year - that its pixels are brimming with animated charm. You can try it for yourself, too, and should probably do so quickly, as the demo available now on Steam is only going to be up for grabs for 72 hours. It's…

Feature: The city must survive. Its people, on the other hand...

Have You Played… Frostpunk?

Frostpunk is a very pretty game about trying to build the last city on Earth after an icy global catastrophe. I, like many others, spent about 25% of my time giving orders to build and gather and research, and the other 75% of my time zooming in as far as the camera allowed to watch my miniature hooded citizens trudging through the snow, or clustered…

Moonlighter announces Between Dimensions DLC and sale

Mystical mercantile action-RPG Moonlighter has been selling like hotcakes - half a million copies, albeit split across several platforms. Clearly, selling magical capitalism is good business, so Digital Sun have announced the game's first paid DLC, Between Dimensions, following on from a series of big free updates. The expansion will include a new interdimensional dungeon, new monsters in both old and new locations, and plenty…

Moonlighter adds new Friends And Foes to meet underground

Mystical mercantile dungeon crawl Moonlighter was a charmer when it launched, and developers Digital Sun have been hard at work expanding it ever since. Today's free Friends & Foes update adds one big new feature (familiars that you can raise on your farm), and a bundle of all-new mini-bosses to tussle with. They've even found a couple ways to cram in even more lore and…

Feature: Turn up the heat

Has Frostpunk been improved by its updates?

My people are fed, my homes are warm, my resources are abundant, and my generator is purring like a well-fed cat. For the first time in Frostpunk, things aren’t looking so bleak. It’s a strange feeling. Typically by this point in 11-Bit Studios’ icebound strategy game, I’ve lost half my populace to sickness and the other half are so ravaged by frostbite that I can…

Overthinking Games: How Moonlighter’s inventory combats your greed

Games have, by and large made us into an insatiable, entitled bunch. We’ve come to expect to be able to waltz into someone’s home and take the bread right off their plate, chests in the woods were left just for us, and all wolves take their purses when they leave their den. There’s a lot of stuff in games, and always more of it than…

Feature: Presents of mind

We asked developers: what would you gift the games industry?

We ask the tough questions here at RPS. We’re like Jeremy Paxman but in a very long bear costume. We once asked 15 developers what they’d do if they were stuck in a room with a clone of themselves. This is important stuff. Today, we ask another question: What would you gift the games industry for the holidays? We put this query to a bunch…

Frostpunk goes even more Dickensian in Christmas update

"And since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" is a tad more grim in a post-apocalyptic world where everything we knew is frozen over and everyone we know may well freeze to death, but Frostpunk has still made space for Christmas. A little festivity can bring hope, after all, and mercy knows we'll need it. That's the…

Frostpunk’s free Endless Mode DLC is out now and bigger than expected

The inhospitable icy wastes of Frostpunk don't look so bad if you've picked Serenity, one of two routes to take through new free Endless Mode DLC. According to 11 Bit's video dev diary (which you can find below along with a launch trailer), Endless Mode took longer to develop because they got a little carried away on the new content front. There are four different…

This War Of Mine expansion The Last Broadcast is out now

They say truth is the first casualty of war, which makes This War Of Mine's latest expansion - The Last Broadcast - equivalent to playing on hard mode. Not only do you have to cope with the usual dangers of keeping a band of civilians alive and safe through a brutal, messy war, but this expansion has players riding the razor's edge - uncovering and…

Preside over a new disaster in Frostpunk’s new free story expansion

If you've not already had (and caused) your fill of tragedy and disaster in Frostpunk, you might want to check out the fate of another doomed settlement in the apocalyptic survival manage 'em up with a new free expansion released today. Set before Frostpunk's main campaign, 'The Fall Of Winterhome' explores a place you'll have heard of--and possibly visited--during that, the fallen/exploded town of Winterhome.…

Frostpunk tells the story of Winterhome’s fall in a free expansion next week

11 Bit's Survival management sim Frostpunk did a lot of things right. It turned Alec into a monster, for starters. It made moral decisions feel like they mattered, beyond the stat gains or losses they resulted in. It also painted a picture of a large, harsh world where other people were living out their own stories, and sometimes they ended badly. Teased at in the…

Feature: Fun for all the family

Children Of Morta is ridiculously pretty, and looking a rather splendid hack-me-do

It is perhaps a little silly to get excited about a game based on screenshots. For all manner of reasons. But I can't help myself whenever I pics of Children Of Morta. It just looked so astonishingly beautiful, especially in the last year. So I nagged at the PR team behind it, and they let me get my hands on an in-development build that doing…

Moonlighter’s ‘More Stock’ update adds extra loot and angry floors

Fantasy shopkeeping adventure Moonlighter has had a busy couple months since its launch in May. Not content to just let stock sit on the shelves, developers Digital Sun have been quick to bring in new goods and renovate its dungeons, and today's update has been its largest yet. Among other things, the 'More Stock' update bulks up environment variety and offers additional rewards for those…

Feature: The endless march of time

The bestest and most top PC games of 2018 so far

We're just about halfway through 2018 (which has somehow taken both too long and no time at all). As is tradition, we've shaken our our brains around to see which games from the last six months still make our neurons fizzle with delight. Then we wrote about them here, in this big list feature that you're reading right now this second. And what games they…

Amazon sold pirate copies of Frostpunk and Surviving Mars, among others

That big shop on the internet, Amazon, has been selling pirated copies of PC games, some do-gooders have discovered (or rather, sellers using Amazon as a storefront have been selling the pirate goods). The dodgy games include icy societal survival game Frostpunk and dusty martian city-builder Surviving Mars, which were being sold for the suspiciously cheapo prices of $3 and $4. If you bought one…

Frostpunk’s Survivor Mode is icing hopeful players today

Okay, which of you asked for this? Survival-management game Frostpunk was already bad enough, turning innocent and mild-mannered RPS writers into tyrannical despots desperate to eke out just one more day in the frozen apocalyptic wastes. Today's update threatens to push them over the edge with a new difficulty level - Survivor Mode - for those who figured even Hard was too forgiving. The new mode…
