Premature Evaluation: Worlds Adrift

Every week we launch Brendan into the early access stratosphere to see if he can find gems among the clouds. This time, the floating islands and airship building of sandbox MMO Worlds Adrift [official site]I fell off my sky boat. I’m now falling through the clouds wondering if this world has a bottom – a large lava pit or possibly a vast, endless ocean –…

Feature: Leave a mark on the world

Worlds Adrift made me believe in MMOs again

On one screen, a developer is demonstrating Worlds Adrift [official site], and explaining that players have hand-crafted everything I can see. The game world is made up of floating islands and the one he's scrambling around right now, using a grappling hook to traverse rapidly, has a ruined building at its centre. It's not very large, the island. You could hop, skip, grapple and jump…

Splatoon goes skateboarding in Surgeon Sim dev’s Decksplash

Splatoon is perhaps the most pleasant surprise from Nintendo in years, a charming and inventive multiplayer shooter (of all things!). Squidkids slip and swim around levels, gushing ink to splat each other and win by painting levels their team's colour, and it's all just smashing. Obviously, it's not coming to PC. But, er, Decksplash [official site] is.Surgeon Simulator developers Bossa Studios yesterday announced Decksplash, a…

Hippocratic Oaf: Surgeon Simulator Tackles Trump

When I first saw the trailer for the new Surgeon Simulator DLC [official site] I felt a bit queasy. You can watch the trailer below before reading on and, like me, you may end up thinking that Inside Donald Trump is about deciding whether or not you'd kill the possible president if he were lying unconscious before you. Maybe I played too many of those…

Kooky Ooky: I Am Bread & Goat Simulator Team Up

The twin fads of zany physics-based games and Joke Simulator Game Simulator 2013 have mostly passed us by now, so I wonder what'll be the not oh-so-random joke genre to strike it big? Frag montage parody FPSs have been too small for too long to take off, and Sanic Hegehog games have never been fun enough. Maybe I'm out of touch.Well, while we await the…

Bready Steady Go: I Am Bread Pops Out Of Early Access

Your Morning Mate, they call it. Johnny Foamguts. Hedgehog Hell. Cleopatra's Sponge. Whatever you call bread - Jam's Friend, Billy. The Sticky Trick - you can now become bread - A Touch of the Brown. Grainbrick - proper real fully-baked bread - Hollywood's Trickshot - as I Am Bread [official site] has left the Early Access oven to sit on the shelves with the rest…

Worlds Adrift Showcases Cannon Fire Gameplay

Bossa Studios have released a short sample of gameplay footage for their multiplayer work-in-progress, Worlds Adrift [official site].The idea behind Worlds Adrift is that you're an explorer roaming from island to island in your rag bag of an airship, looking for ways to upgrade it and keep it fueled as you wander round the skies. According to Bossa: "We hope Worlds Adrift will be a…

Surgeon Sim Creators Prototype: Worlds Adrift

In the wake of Kickstarter and its crowd funding brethren, the last couple of years has seen a trend of asking communities to give feedback during development, and even to contribute ideas. But a phrase I haven't heard a lot during all this is, "is it worth us continuing working on this game or not?" That's the bold question being asked by Surgeon Sim creators…

Wacky Physics Sandwichbox: I Am Bread Released

I'm sure your emoji are nice and all, but what'd really enrich my written communication is sound effects. Take this post: what I have to do is explain that the company behind Surgeon Simulator yesterday released onto Steam Early Access I Am Bread, a zany physics sandbox where you control a sentient slice of bread roaming a house trying to become tastier. And how am…

Dark And Dank Too: Deep Dungeons Of Doom

It's important to be precise in game names. You wouldn't want to confuse Deep Dungeons of Doom with the Shallow Dungeons of Doom, which I believe is a local Glaswegian duck-feeding pond. Nor with the Deep Dungeons of Joy which is a family-friendly burger joint in London with a great view of the Jubilee line, or the common phrase "deep pockets of doom" mostly attributed…

Toast In The Machine: I Am Bread

I Am Bread's trailer trundled onto the internet in a miniature clown car, putt-putting toward the big top of YouTube, coughing smoke rings from its tiny exhaust pipe. How the crowds guffawed when the doors clattered to the ground and a lanky harlequin struggled out of the driver's seat, his oversized shoes flip-flopping against the steering wheel and sending gasping honks out into the atmosphere.…

Give Your Eyes, Teeth: Surgeon Simulator DLC

I couldn't tell you how many eyeballs I've gouged out and teeth I've kicked in while playing video games. Lots, certainly (and in the game), but never to help people. New Surgeon Simulator DLC will let us altruistically enjoy sounds of eyeballs squishing and teeth tinkling, adding new operations starring those bodyparts. It's bringing them over from the PlayStation 4 version, really, along with new…

Surgeon Simulator ARG Yields Out Of This World Secret

Well, that didn't take long. Like an expert surgeon carving out cavities and worming sausage-fingers indiscriminately between guts, Bossa recently stuffed an ARG into Surgeon Simulator 2013's latest update. For hours - no, more than a whole day - Codename: Trisha had the game's community stumped. But then, finally, after many long, sleepless nights, a solution beamed into view. Bizarre, cryptic messages? Wild numerical spews? Enough…

A Cut Above: Surgeon Simulator Adds SPACE SURGERY

In space, no one can hear you scream. Typically, that's very bad news seeing as games, TV shows, and movies have incontrovertibly proven that the universe is crawling with slavering teeth monsters that want to replace our insides with their writhing, gelatinous young. However, if you're an implausibly incompetent space surgeon, I believe you can actually make a solid case for the silence of the vacuum…

Heavy Medication: Surgeon Sim Slices TF2’s Heavy

Like the world's most fun STD, Team Fortress 2 really likes to spread itself around. What's that itch, Joe Danger? Why it's a just a case of the hats. That's not a wart on Poker Night at the Inventory, it's an achievement. And though the one game we all wanted to have a little bit of TF2 in it has remained resistant, there's a new…

Feature: Heart-stopping

Surgeon Simulator 2013 review

As a games blogger, the question I am most often asked is: “When are you going to go back to school so that you can get a real job, like an accountant or a doctor?” To which I reply: “Look, Mum, Dad, writing about videogames is a real job now. I've paid my rent unaided for at least several years.” Then I show them games…
