Feature: A plethora of games to scratch that same Minecraft itch

Games like Minecraft – 16 best games like Minecraft from the past ten years

There have been a great many games like Minecraft over the past decade. Which is to be expected, because who wouldn't want to capitalise on the runaway mainstream success of the decade, and the best-selling video game of all time? There are many things that are very special about Minecraft, and remain more or less unmatched even ten years later; but we've done our very…

Wargroove adding new cooperative campaign in next free update

Oh, we all love an underdog story. Fantastical Advance Wars-alike Wargroove had its fair share of politicking and magical horrors, but what were these Outlaws doing all over the place? And why did they care so much about pastoral macroeconomics? Wargroove's upcoming free update, Double Trouble, is bringing the cannon-fodder bandits into the spotlight, ditching fantasy warfare for a cooperative heist adventure.

Feature: The best gift I ever bought

Have you played… Stardew Valley?

My partner doesn't play that many games. She's probably got more hours logged into Bubble Shooter than I've put into Rocket League, but besides that, nada. So the opportunities to tempt her into watching a YouTube Let's Play with me back when we first starting living together at university were quite few and far between. But one of the very few successes was when I…

Stardew Valley introducing fish ponds in next update

As Stardew Valley continues to potter through the farmyard garden of development, picking and planting new bits and pieces, creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has revealed another feature coming in the next update: fish ponds. I would very much like a pond by my farmhouse, thank you. I think they're meant to be commercial fish ponds for us to farm and process our aquatic friends, selling…

Chucklefish’s response to accusations of exploiting volunteer Starbound devs isn’t good enough

Game dev can be tricky stuff. It's easy to think of crunch as something that only bothers the big dogs - massive studios churning through their hundreds-strong workforce to get out a particularly snazzy-looking 3D rock. Absolutely shocking, then, that indies are far from exempt from inexcusable working conditions. Starbound might have helped put Chucklefish on the map, but that may have come at the…

This Stardew Valley mod is all about cross-species friendship

In the depths of my heart can be found a place barely accessible to anything, cold and barren. But like a Russian Sleeper agent or Denzel Washington in The Manchurian Candidate, this heart can become triggered into action instantly by the incantation of a single phrase. My heart, a wasteland of memories about dogs and good sandwiches once had, will thump with the euphoric power…

Starbound adds bounty hunters with banana heads, rare new monsters

Starbound yesterday launched a new update, and it features bounty hunters with giant bananas for heads. The last bounty I hunted ended in a brutal massacre the likes of which that outback desert town had never seen. You thought I was going to make a cute joke about chocolate, didn't you? Do not cross me, vagrant. Instead, take in a light spot of the trailer…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Have You Played… Starbound?

Often, games are burnt into our memories by the light of the events that took place offscreen. Sometimes, the fused structures are happy ones: a snatch of music from Sonic 3 brings with it the smell of cut grass and caravan upholstery, while the cover art for Discworld II dredges up midsummer sweat and wafting net curtains, the night before a family holiday.

Feature: Jonesing for better

Pathway review

[To the tune of Indiana Jones.] Dun da da da / Dun da-da / There’s some nazis / In a jeep, oh no / And a boulder / Run away / Give my heart back / It’s my favourite organ. Ah, a classic theme for a classic series. And yet, the last Indiana Jones game I remember playing was a highly irritating Super Star Wars…

Jonesing for adventure: Pathway released

Doctor Jones, Jones, calling Doctor Jones, they've made a new video game inspired by your adventures and you might want to intervene. I know, I know, it belongs in a museum but you try telling Chucklefish that. The publishers of Stardew Valley and Wargroove today opened bidding on Robotality's Pathway, a turn-based tactical RPG adventure doodad travelling across Northern Africa to thwart Nazis and secure…

Pathway goes raiding for lost arks on April 11th

Indiana Jones-ish, Nazi-mashing tactical RPG Pathway is just over the horizon, launching next Thursday, April 11th. Developed by Robotality, it's looking like a major step up over their debut tactics game Halfway. It appears to be a tantalising blend of FTL, Curious Expedition and cover-based, very XCOM squad combat - there's exploration, bartering, party building and lots of RPG granularity, and five semi-procedural campaigns. It helps…

Pathway puts a tactical, FTL-like spin on Indiana Jones adventures

Globe-trotting pulp adventures, Nazis to shoot, cursed artifacts to claim and/or explode and elements of both XCom and FTL? Pathway is ticking a lot of exciting-sounding boxes already, and doesn't look half bad either. Developers Robotality cut their teeth with the purely tactical Halfway back in 2014, but their second game looks like it's no half measure, building on both the combat and RPG sides…

Checkpoint, please: Wargroove adds handy features

Life has become a little friendlier in Wargroove, as Chucklefish's Advance Wars-y strategy game today launched its keenly-awaited "quality of life patch." Handy features include checkpoints in missions, difficulty setting changes, getting to add AI-controller players to multiplayer matches, and lots of little tweaks and fixes. War may be hell, but that doesn't mean we should accept it being inconvenient.

Wargroove lays out plans for future fixes and features

Wee fixes and handy "quality of life" features are in the pipeline for Wargroove, developers Chucklefish say, with vague plans for a full-on content update and some DLC further down the way. Chucklefish laid out their plans yesterday, also noting that sales of their Advance Wars-y turn-based strategy game between Friday's launch and Sunday had "already covered the cost of development." Our Brendan's Wargroove review…

Wargroove strategically shuffles into stores today

Wargroove is out now, and clearly an Advance Wars game with the serial numbers filed off and replaced with Chucklefish branding. I am entirely fine with this, and you shouldn't count that as criticism in the slightest. Clearly inspired by Intelligent Systems's accessible-but-tough strategy series, Wargroove has a few ideas of its own, and lots of maps, missions and little soldiers to boss around. It…

Feature: War! Huh! Yeah! What is it groove for?

Wargroove review

The pikemen have us surrounded, lads. There are enemy trebuchets to the north, knights to the east, and alchemists to the west. I’ll be frank, men, this is not great optics. Let’s reflect as the battledogs charge in from the south. What could we have done to avoid this? No, I don’t know either. The battles of turn-based tactical throwback Wargroove can be tough, and…

Wargroove advances to war on February 1st

Wargroove, the adorable looking Advance Wars-alike from Chucklefish is set to besiege my heart on February 1st. The fantasy turn-based strategy game was high on my 2018 most-wanted list until it slipped to this year, and I'm excited to see if it passes muster. It may be swapping out cartoony modern armies for fantasy kingdoms, but almost everything else is familiar, right down to the…

Stardew Valley has a battle royale mod, because of course it does

A gentle breeze lapped against the hay bales. Farmer Wyatt leaned against his porch, soaking in another day of rural paradise. Pigs snuffled, chickens chirped. Then one of the 99 other farmers caved his skull in with a hoe. Stardew Valley modder "Ilyaki" has brought battle royale to the nominally peaceful farming-sim. Time to sharpen your pitchforks.

Feature: Oh no there are too many games

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…
