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…

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…

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…

Stardew Valley developer splits with Chucklefish to self-publish

You can't get much more indie than breaking up with a small publisher to go entirely solo, and that's exactly what Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone is doing with his enormously popular farm 'em up Stardew Valley. As of December 14th, he'll be sole developer and publisher of the game on PC, Xbox, PS4 and Vita. The break with Chucklefish seems amicable and not all-encompassing too, with…

Feature: Though it's very much a beta

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer might be the perfect hang out game

When I first began playing Stardew Valley, it was predominantly a solitary affair. Not only because it was squarely a single player game, but because avoiding other people suited my playstyle just fine. I headed to Pelican Town to relax, farm, and mine, not to make friends. All I needed was the quiet of my crops growing and a good canine companion. And yet, when…

Pathway looks more than a bit like Indiana Jones: Tactics

Oh dear. All it takes is a screenshot of a rag-tag band of roguish heroes fighting Nazis out in some 1930s archaeological dig and I'm humming the sodding theme tune again. Pathway is the followup to XCOM-lite tactics game Halfway. Marsh Davies rather liked it in spite of its flaws back in 2014, so here's hoping that developers Robotality (now being published under Chucklefish's rapidly…

Feature: Update Night

Has Starbound been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse. I’ve got a robot chicken in the shed that parps out batteries. Do you want to have a look? No, seriously, she’s next to the electrical sheep, and she’s a proper money maker. Every day I teleport down to my little farm, collect…

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer beta expected for spring

My farm in Stardew Valley is a place of solace. It's a shrine to quiet contemplation, a valuable retreat from the demands of sociability, a hidey-hole built just for me and my thoughts. Why would I want to invite someone in and spoil all that? Actually, none of that's true. I'd love to romp around Stardew Valley with a friend in tow, and I'll soon…

Treasure Adventure World completes its long journey

It's been seven years since Robit Games released the original freeware Treasure Adventure Game. The charming exploration-focused platformer won over a lot of hearts, and claimed itself a few awards in the process, and so its teensy-tiny two man development team (one programmer, one musician at the time) set their sights a little higher. Despite recruiting a few new friends along the way, it must have…

Treasure Adventure World sets sail on February 7th

Update: Because I'm braindead this first week, I mistakenly said it's out February 8th. Nope, it's the 7th. A good five years after we first posted about it, Robit Games' open-world puzzle-platformer Treasure Adventure World will sail out next month. Publishers Chucklefish Games, who also published Stardew Valley and Starbound, today announced that Treasure Adventure World will launch on February 7th. The important bit is:…

Stardew Valley will let you change professions

Ah, life on the farm. Working with your hands in the slurry, watching the pigs wallow in the antibiotics, drinking a shot of warm, unpasteurised milk straight from the teat. What simple pleasures farming sim Stardew Valley affords us. Perhaps a few more, says developer ConcernedApe aka Eric Barone. He recently tweeted some upcoming changes, including new town events and the ability to change professions…

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer is “coming along great”

While we wait for online cooperative multiplayer to officially arrive in Stardew Valley -- early 2018, last we heard -- creator Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone has shared a little update. It's "coming along great", he says, and "already really fun". I mean, sure he would say that, but it's Stardew Valley in multiplayer so I'll believe that. The wait continues but Barone does share a nice…

Stardew Valley dev’s mysterious next game is set on the same planet

The creator of Stardew Valley [official site] has opened up a little about plans for his next game, something mysterious that's set on the same planet as Stardew but is not a sequel. Don't expect to hear juicy details from Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone any time soon because he's avoiding building heaps of hype but he does say that, similar to Stardew Valley, it will likely…

Spellbound’s witch school invokes teen awkwardness

Stardew Valley is a common point of comparison for the witch school daily life RPG that Chucklefish are making -- and not just because Chucklefish also published Stardew -- but its relationships will certainly be more challenging. Chucklefish still haven't formally announced the game tentatively named Spellbound but they are gabbing about it again, this time about how NPCs will have a little more independence…

Stardew Valley publishers tease slightly witchy project

OH! Just before the weekend Chucklefish CEO, Finn Brice (Chucklefish being the publishers of Stardew Valley but ALSO devs of their own games including Starbound) popped up a teaser image for their magic school RPG/sim project. It's been described by Brice in the past as "something like Stardew Valley meets Harry Potter" and this image is reminding me of any number of nice sims I…

Stardew Valley multiplayer expected in early 2018

The first green sprouts of multiplayer should push up into cutesy farm life RPG Stardew Valley [official site] at the end of this year, publishers Chucklefish have announced. Chucklefish are chipping in with multiplayer and expect it'll be ready to launch properly in "early 2018". For now, they've explained a little more of how it will work.

Wargroove is a build-your-own-battlefield Advance Wars

It seems we missed Wargroove [official site] when it was announced a few months ago. It’s a pixelly strategy game that looks closely inspired by Nintendo’s Advance Wars. It’s set in a mythical medieval world with skeletons and lances0 though, as opposed to a fictional near-future one with artillery shells and spanners. It also has the added appeal of being able to design and share…

Starbound is adding player-built space stations

Crafty space sandbox Starbound [official site] will add the ability to build your own space station in its next update. Living on planets is for lahoo-oo-oo-serrrs so Starbounders and starcads will get to build their own space base out of snap-together modules, shaping and decorating stations as they please. Me, I'd want my station to be a space bar in a space garden but I…
