Take another Journey when it comes to Steam in June

Thatgamecompany's lovely desert wandering game is floating through another barrier. It first arrived on PC via the Epic Store last summer and, as many games are wont to do when that exclusivity period is up, Journey will land on Steam in June. It's a personal favorite of mine, so I'll gladly cheer it on to its new destination as I did when it finally made…

Outer Wilds blasts off on Steam in June

Hey, you, have you been sleeping on our favourite game of last year because you didn't want to shop at the Epic Games Store? Friendo, you can now set a date for your adventure into Outer Wilds: June 18th. That's the Steam release date for the fascinating sci-fi puzzle sandbox, publishers Annapurna announced today. Outer Wilds is a time-looping investigation into a solar system where…

Wilmot’s Warehouse devs now have a weird museum in I Am Dead

The next game from the team behind the wonderful Wilmot's Warehouse will not be Wilmot's Distribution Centre or Wilmot's Lockers, it's not about supply chains at all, and in fact it's a game where someone has already done all the hard work of organising for us. The collaborators of Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg today announced I Am Dead, a "puzzle adventure game" about a…

Feature: Crazy ass battles, chases and learning to love again

How Sayonara Wild Hearts’ music amplifies its queer, feminine identity

Pulsating with irrepressible energy, Sayonara Wild Hearts is a music-based arcade game which lets you ride motorcycles and riposte teddy girls, all while balancing on a massive aerial sword that sails through the air at 200mph. It’s a euphoric and unexpectedly emotive experience, brimming with explicitly queer and feminine energy fortified by its bisexual lighting filter of pink, purple and blue, and an electropop soundtrack…

Maquette is a beautiful puzzler where small changes have massive consequences

A maquette, Wikipedia tells me, is a "scale model or rough draft of an unfinished sculpture". Maquette is also a beautiful new game from Graceful Decay and publishers Annapurna. Fittingly, those two definitions aren't as separate as they might seem. Releasing sometime later this year, Maquette is a recursive first-person puzzle box about models within models, where small-scale adjustments can have a massive impact on…

Monument Valley designer’s visual novel Florence comes to PC next week

Created by the new studio of Monument Valley lead designer Ken Wong, it follows a young woman named Florence as she falls in love with a street performer. It'll have us play out some of the seemingly mundane parts of her life, from cleaning her teeth to answering phone calls from…

Kentucky Route Zero’s fifth and final act has arrived

Act V of Kentucky Route Zero has finally launched, ending a journey that many in the RPS treehouse have come to love. If you haven't played the adventure game before, now is the perfect time to jump into Cardboard Computer's mysterious trip through a secret highway below Kentucky - but don't take my word for it, because almost everyone at RPS has had great things…

Feature: The several stages of griefing

The joy of harmless griefing in Wattam

Griefing, a term applying to any bad faith behaviour in an online game, whether it’s ruining things for your group or harassing other players, has reared its ugly head since early MMOs like Ultima Online. The behaviour existed even further back in MUDs, text-based multi-user dungeons, before the term griefing had been coined. Yet, going by the popularity of Untitled Goose Game, there’s clearly a…

Feature: Wattave I just played?

Wattam review

There's a certain degree of weirdness you'd expect from a Keita Takahashi game. Whether it's creating planets by rolling up the world's detritus (with the occasional screeching human and puzzled animal in tow) in Katamari Damacy, or using an LED controller to get naked while brushing your teeth in Tenya Wanya Teens, Takahashi's games have always baffled and bemused me in equal measure. They also…

Feature: Get out of my dreams, get onto my cool motorbike

Sayonara Wild Hearts review

Sayonara Wild Hearts is a sort of rhythm action arcade game, and as I played I kept getting flavours of different things. In terms of video games I felt Thumper, then (less obviously) Fe, plus SuperHot and Persona 5. Oh, and that mine cart level in the first Harry Potter game. But Sayonara wild hearts is also the drag race scene in Grease, the "Get…

Wattam, from the designer of Katamari Damacy, is out now

Winter may be here to stay for a bit but there's some stray sunshine to be found in Wattam, the bright little puzzle game that will feel immediately familiar to anyone who played Katamari Damacy years ago on the PS2. Or, heck, last year's re-release on the PC. Wattam has a similar fascination with things that would normally be inanimate objects like toilets, trees, and…

Rhythm game Sayonara Wild Hearts is, without warning, out now

If you're anything like me, you've been planning on playing Sayonara Wild Hearts since it launched on Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade earlier this year. Now you can feel slightly worse about continuing to not find time for it, as developers Simogo and publishers Annapurna Interactive have just released the game on PC via Steam. This comes just over a week after it was named…

Last Stop is the new game from the makers of Virginia

Variable State, the studio being the striking vignette 'em up Virginia, today announced their next game. Last Stop is a supernatural mystery in present-day London with three playable characters who get tangled in the same quite strange and awful spookening, and I'm well up for it. While Virginia had no dialogue (to excellent effect), this one's a proper chatty one with voice acting and all,…

Wattam’s non-stop wobble party hits PC next month

Winter's hit like a brick this year, and it's about time we were owed a little sunshine. It warms the heart, then, to discover that joyous friend 'em up Wattam was given a release date earlier today. Arriving in the grim heart of December, mere days after the country plunges into a miserable election, I think we'll all need some time to go morris dancing…

Feature: In honour of His Souliness

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Destroy a journal, defend the world in upcoming If Found…

There’s not much more that feels better than tearing up a completed to-do list at the end of the day, which is why I’ve never moved to keeping track of my tasks electronically. Destroying a diary, as you’ll be doing in If Found… might be a less appealing process, depending what’s kept inside. But the fact that doing so may just stop a black hole…

Sleuth through strangers’ FMV lives in Telling Lies

FMV investigate ‘em up Telling Lies has launched, bring you reams of stolen footage to search through at your leisure. There’s a good reason you’re nosing into the lives of these four strangers, I’m sure. At least, if you think naked curiosity is as good a reason as any. Which I do. Look, here’s a sneak peak via the launch trailer.

Feature: Who watches the watchperson?

Telling Lies review

If I was really lazy I would just write "you know Her Story? It's like that but more," and call it a day. But I'm not lazy. I am a diligent and enthusiastic employee of Rock Paper Shotgun, and that sentence would be a bit of an oversimplification of Sam Barlow's new watch videos 'em up Telling Lies.
