Rain World’s slippery Slugcat is coming to PC this year

It is better to GIF than to receive. Nobody follows this wise and ancient proverb more faithfully than the developers of survival platformer Rain World [official site]. The game’s ‘slugcat’ has been enticing the RPS office for years by jumping from one platform to another, squeezing between pipes and rescuing little slugkittens in a variety of handsome animations. We’ve got some more to show you below. But this time there is some vague news attached: Rain World will finally be coming out this year.

Frog Fractions 2 hatches from Glittermitten Grove

The elusive Frog Fractions 2 snuck out while over the RPS Crimble holiday, hidden inside a colourful game about building a faerie village and locked away behind a sprawling ARG. Frog Fractions 2 could never be as surprising as the first game, given that y’know we now have heard of Frog Fractions, but it seems to have made a fair go of replacing surprise with epicness. Epicity? Epicicity? That thing. Once again, FF leaps wildly between genres on a wild adventure hidden within something innocuous. This time, your way in is to buy the sparkly-named Glittermitten Grove [official site]. Read the rest of this entry »

Gaga: Small Radios Big Televisions Released

I’m always interested when a free small weird doodad I enjoyed years ago gets a full commercial release, and I’m especially curious to see what Small Radios Big Televisions [official site] has become. I enjoyed the mild puzzling of 2014’s free version, poking around an oil rig and gathering tapes to enter the warbling distorted scenes stored on them, but I’ve no clue what it might be now. More of a puzzle game, perhaps? I am keen to find out. Unfortunately for both of us, I need to finish this post before I can clock off and fire it up. Chop chop! Read the rest of this entry »

Small Radios Big Televisions Looks Pretty Bizarre

The trailer for Small Radios Big Televisions [official site] uses a voice filter that reminds me slightly of the Max Headroom hack that happened during a broadcast of Doctor Who. It also kind of annoys me that there’s no comma between “radios” and “big” in the title, but that’s another story. In any case, I think this might be a game for me. The wait won’t be long, as it’s now received a release date of November 8th. Read the rest of this entry »

ToeJam & Earl Gets a Funky New Sequel In 2017

ToeJam & Earl are back for another crack at some old school roguelikelike shenanigans and funky grooves. Aided by a Kickstarter in 2015 and now publishers Adult Swim Games, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove [official site] is due on PC sometime in 2017. Back in the Groove will see the Sega Mega Drive cult classic’s stars crash land back on Earth, where they’ll have to do their best to fit in with the locals while they try to piece their ship back together.

You can see for yourself how the revival is shaping up in a new, nostalgia-laden teaser released this week.

Watch Half An Hour Of Double Fine’s Headlander

Oh, hallo there! You’ve caught me tidying up the last of the E3 stuff on my desk. Sweeping away Tunnock’s Teacake wrappers, mostly. But this? Ah yes, this is a half-hour of gameplay footage from Double Fine’s Headlander [official site]. Yes, I’d also almost forgotten they were making it. Headlander is a side-scrolling action-adventure about the decapitated head of the last living human romping through a ’70s retro-future world. Always got style, that Double Fine lot. See:
