Feature: Don't let us down

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

Have You Played… Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I wrote the other day that Grim Fandango proved to be a metaphor for the decline from wider relevancy of the point and click adventure game. Well, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a metaphor for how those games - and others of…

Have You Played… Might & Magic: Clash Of Heroes?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. The Heroes of Might and Magic games were among my favourites growing up, with their big operatic scores and lovely turn-based strategising. They're very simple things but beautifully presented and much calmer than their genre stablemates. Clash of Heroes [Steam page] is similarly…

Feature: A pile of paradoxes

How Super Time Force Lets You Play With Paradoxes

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to pauses, rewinds and dissect the systems that make their games tick (tock). Here are the five stages of first playing Super Time Force: 1. It’s just another arcade run and gunner. 2. Huh, I play alongside my former lives? 3. Causality, paradoxes? And a time limit? Oh god. 4. I CAN REWIND TIME. 5. Haha…

It’s Upon Us: Capy’s Below Coming This Summer

Sword & Sworcery is one of my favourite games ever, and Super Time Force was great fun, so I'm terribly excited for Capy's next project, the dark and mysterious explore-em-up Below. [official site] Jim Guthrie (Sword & Sworcery, Indie game: The Movie) providing the soundtrack is really just the icing on this delicious cake. And a new trailer reveals we're going to be able to…

The aquatic latest expansion for Don't Starve [official site] launched into Early Access in December and has picked up a few patches along the way, but what's the grand plan for Shipwrecked? What's coming next? Another biome, new characters, balance tweaks, and extra bosses including the Tiger Shark, according to creators Klei.

Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked Sails Into Early Access

Exploring a tropical archipelago sounds ground, but it's never that easy in Don't Starve [official site]. Shipwrecked, the latest expansion for Klei's open-world crafty survival game, arrived last night with a boatload of new treats and threats in new lands. Also, boats! I don't know what drives you to place these sweet little computer people in such hazardous situations, you monsters.

Feature: Microsoft's Loss Is Our Gain

Why PC Will Make Below A Better Game

Below, the gorgeous, mystery-dripping roguelike explorer from Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery collaborator Capy, is looking tremendous. It's got a uniquely dreamy vibe about it and atmosphere that hits like an 18-wheeler driven by a throng of stampeding rhinos. It was set to be an Xbox exclusive, but Capy managed to wriggle loose from Microsoft's iron grasp and set about working on its first ever day-and-date…
