Atomicrops sprouts out of Epic exclusivity next week

It's tough work, farming through a nuclear winter. Tough enough that Atomicrops is now recruiting farmhands from beyond the confines of the Epic Games Store. Only a few months after release, publishers Raw Fury this week announced that their carrot-plucking twin-stick shooter is heading to Steam and GOG later this month - bringing a bounty of irradiated new content with it.

Atomicrops review

Atomicrops is not your granpappy’s pixel art farming sim. It’s not a farming sim at all, really, but more a twin stick bullet-hell-and-tarnation with some very light nods to life-sim elements through upgrades. It’s also moreish, dizzyingly vibrant, and full of more squirming veggies than when you threw up that carrot cake your mum tried to make look like a regular birthday cake by dumping…

Nuclear farmer Atomicrops leaves early access next month

I might only have briefly dabbled in farm work while travelling, but Atomicrops sure ain't how I remember it. I remember wellies and mud, yeah, but mutants? Shotguns? Seems suspect. With the turning of the seasons, Bird Bath Games' farm-person-shooter is ready to bring home the harvest, as Atomicrops prepares to leave early access on May 28th.

Premature Evaluation: Atomicrops

It speaks to the uneasy balance between humankind’s pessimism and optimism that we’re all fairly certain we’re going to nuke one another into oblivion at some point, but that it will also be loads of fun for those who survive the blast, with mutated trees and cool trucks and glowing green goop flying everywhere. Atomicrops is one such vision of a cartoonish radioactive future, a…

Gamescom’s best of the rest: the coolest indies round up

This would not be RPS if I didn't return from Gamescom and write minimally about the triple A-xtravaganzas and maximumly about smaller, weirder things wot I saw. So here, have at it: my favourite of the independently made games I saw at this year's show. I flatter myself that the selection is broad enough that it covers genres to suit every taste. Strategy games! Card…

Atomicrops: hands on with the twin-stick Stardew Valley game you didn’t know you wanted

I have been telling people I played this game called Atomicrops, and they go “Huh, haven’t heard of that one, what is it?” And then I go “It’s sort of… twin-stick Stardew Valley?” because so far that is the best shorthand I can come up with. Although it describes itself as an action roguelite farming simulator, which may be more helpful for you.The framing for…

Atomicrops sprouts a colourful, nutritious debut trailer

Much as my girlfriend adores Stardew Valley, its gentle pace is a little soporific sometimes. Atomicrops, on the other hand, appears to be the game's jittery, over-caffeinated cousin, blending Harvest Moon-esque farming and romance with twin-stick shooter combat and a colourful post-apocalyptic setting. Bird Bath Games's vision of the end of the world is perhaps a little more Adventure Time than Fallout, but I reckon…
