A quick peek at The Signal From Tölva’s frosty expansion

As influential as the STALKER series has been, Big Robot's The Signal From Tölva is one of the few shooters to properly replicate its blend of emergent open-world wandering and sci-fi spookiness. Tölva was admittedly a little on the short side, but Big Robot are generous sorts, and are just about ready to roll out a major free expansion for the game. Alice took a…

The Signal From Tölva: 9 mins of robo-spying, shooting

John previously described Big Robot's The Signal From Tölva [official site] as "Far Cry meets a 1970s sci-fi book you’ve found in a charity shop." I like that description, but I didn't play the hands-on when I was at EGX earlier this year so I've been waiting for - just to pull an example out of thin air - nine minutes and twenty-two seconds of…

Wot I Made: Sir, You Are Being Hunted V1.0

We're not going to be publishing a Wot I Think of the game Sir, You Are Being Hunted because one of the principle people behind it - although secondary in overall accomplishment to the mercurial Tom Betts and the incendiary James Carey - is me.

I have a cut on my thumb and I don't know where it came from. Permutation Racer is made by a graphical wizard called Tom Betts who works…
