After The Zeno Clash: Abyss Odyssey

With Zeno Clash developers ACE Team at the helm, Abyss Odyssey will no doubt take place in quite an odd world, but it definitely won't take place in Oddworld, even if the title does look a bit like Abe's Oddysee. The newly announced game is a side-scroller like Oddworld's first, but ACE Team are sticking to their principles by concentrating on creatures engaging in fisticuffs.…

Zenomorph: The Art And Evolution Of Zeno Clash

This is the first in a weekly series of features about the art and art technology of PC games, in association with website Dead End Thrills. More from Zeno Clash II can be found here. Click the images below for biggies. Punch me in my Salvador Dali and tell me I'm not dreaming. Did just fifteen people really make Zeno Clash II? Of course they…

Feature: Punched Out

Zeno Clash 2 review

Zeno Clash 2 is the sequel I always wished would come to fruition, but never dared hope for. I mean, if you look at the Call of Duties or even Grand Theft Autos of the world, there's no real intrigue amongst all the announcement glitz and glamour. We already know roughly what we're in for. But the original Zeno Clash opened this swirling, cream-colored Pandora's…

Ernst And Jung: Zeno Clash 2

Zeno Clash 2 will most likely contain many remarkable sights but the latest video, showing six minutes of the game's opening section, isn't particularly potent. There's mention of larger areas, more freedom of movement and side quests, but it looks more like the beginning of a Let's Play series than a trailer. Maybe that makes it the polar opposite of a live action trailer, in…

Yessss: Zeno Clash II’s Trailer Looks Crazier Than Ever

In Zeno Clash II, there is punching and uppercutting and kicking and kneeing and winged lion people and juggle combos and bird men and claw guns and cities that look like the industrial age as imagined by a sentient piece of chewing gum and a case of severe underbite that probably wasn't fixed because dentists rarely work with those wooden things people put paint on…

Downhill Battle: Rock Of Ages Free All Weekend

I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I was a rock. What would I do if someone stepped on me? How would I wear my moss? Which historical art period would I most enjoy bulldozing if it were tastefully reimagined with a few extra elephants running amok? To its credit, ACE Team's Rock of Ages does its best to simulate all concerns relevant…

Hieronymus: ACE Team Explain Zeno Clash II

Carlos Bordeu from ACE Team is excited about being able to talk about his new game, Zeno Clash II. And that makes for good reading. We talked to him about open worlds, new technology, and how a game inspired by "the punk fantasy art of John Blanche" is going to play. Read on for elucidation.

Weirdbiff: Zeno Clash II Arriving In 2013!

There's going to be a Zeno Clash sequel in 2013! Trailer below, showing Father-Mother and Ghat leaping from a huge building, with Golem watching. Then there are huge landscapes, a giant arm sticking out of the ground, and plenty of weird-looking cities. Ace Team explain that it's going to be a much bigger deal this time: "The world of Zenozoik comes alive like never before,…

Rock Of Ages Develops Christmas Cheer

Father Christmas is a very lazy man. He works one day a year, and spends the rest of his time just sitting there, judging children. What a prick. His elves are the real heroes, and are woefully undersung. For instance, they're zooming around everywhere, adding Christmas cheer wherever they can. Even reaching the obscurity of ACE Team's Rock Of Ages. Now featuring snowballs. You can…

Feature: Bouldering Me Over

Rock Of Ages review

What would Chilean crazy-maestros Ace Team do after their mind-curdling FPS melee game, Zeno Clash? Well, it should have been obvious: they set about creating, Rock Of Ages, a competitive boulder-rolling comedy action-puzzle-strategy game set within several centuries of art history. Yep, it was an open niche, and they rolled right in there. It's out now, and I'm going to have to tell you Wot…

Not Waiting Ages For Rock Of Ages

Rock of Ages is a game RPS has been terribly excited about for quite some time. Why? Well, because it's about rolling a giant, apparently sentient and sadistic boulder through art, history and the history of art, with graphics by someone doing a very convincing Terry Gilliam impression. VIDEOGAMES! Our desperate anticipation for this next game from the Zeno Clash madmen should soon be over…

Rock Of Ages Rolls Over Art, Wizards

Ace dev team ACE Team have released a new trailer for their boulder-rolling history-of-art puzzle game, Rock Of Ages, and it shows the ball in action, doing funnies. Previously we saw power ups which embue your happy rolling rock with temporary powers, such as being tough, or being on fire, and there's some of these here, too. If only life had temporary power ups beyond…

Super Clunky Ball: Rock Of Ages Videos

It really is about time we caught up on Rock Of Ages trailers, don't you think. The next game from the mad geniuses behind Zeno Clash, ACE Team, is a combination of tower defence and Marble Madness, because that's the way those people think. And there's lots of bits of the Pythonesque madness to look at below, including a ten minute walkthrough of how it…

Smashing! Rock Of Ages Powerups Trailer

Now we've gotten to the bottom of why the boulder is smiling, we at RPS haven't a single reservation about Rock of Ages. Just look at it! It is literally rock and roll. This is going to be an amazing game. And if you watch the following trailer, you'll discover that even the powerups are going to be pretty good. We've got Iron Bands, Fireball,…

Ace Team Talk Rock Of Ages

Ace Team, the Chilean studio behind the fantastically unusual first person beat 'em up Zeno Clash, are now making a game that combines bowling with art history. It's called Rock Of Ages, and it's a game of two halves. One half is that of a boulder crashing around destroying stuff, the other is about defending things from that errant ball of rock. Sounds suitably strange,…

Lost Marbles: Rock Of Ages

The next game from Zeno Clash creators Ace Team, which will be coming out on the PC as well as the TV fun extenders in early 2011, is Rock Of Ages. It looks delightfully batshit awesome, as you can see from the most recent trailer, which I've totally gone and embedded right below these words. Said trailer shows a selection of things that the rock…
