Another Goat Simulator Update, Another Incredible Trailer

Goat Simulator really is just the dumbest thing, isn't it? Naturally, that's why everyone in the whole world loves it and I have a pet goat now. I was surprised (and let's face it: a bit saddened) to find that real goats have functional neck bones and lack tongues that stretch like elastic and stick like gorilla glue, but them's the breaks. Related: do not…

A Story About My Uncle I Guess But Mostly Grappling Hooks

Hey gang, and welcome back to another exciting round of Judge A Game By Its Name! Today we're looking at A Story About My Uncle. You're thinking 2D puzzle-platformer, right? Monochromatic palette, perhaps accented with red. Lots of slow walking sections with quiet introspective narration, surely? If that's your final answer, then I'm sorry to say you haven't won today, as it's actually a first-person…

Go(at) Figure: Goat Simulator Update To Add Parkour

FINALLY. As I discovered while horsing goating around for all the world to see, Goat Simulator has literally everything one could possibly conceive of throwing into a videogame. Between its quiet, moving narrative, masterfully measured pacing, tasteful use of whaling sections, allegorical nods to both Shakespeare's entire career and his greatest lost work, The Fifth Element, and 42 hour roadtripping-through-middle-America-with-Oscar-Wilde sequence, it more or less…

Cloven-screen: Goat Simulator Adding Multiplayer

Goat Simulator is pretty much a dicking about simulator but oh, how lonely and pointless it is to dick about by yourself! Perhaps that's the entire reason the goat is acting up. Why, put it in a pen with another real goat and perhaps they'd happily amble about and chew the cud all day long. I suppose we'll find out in May, as developers Coffee…

Rise & Stream: Watch Us Chatter Over Goat Simulator

Goats! Who doesn't love goats? Bad people, I'd be willing to bet. Or should I say "baaaaaaaaaad people"? No, no, I really shouldn't. What a regrettable choice on my part. I do not, however, regret picking Goat Simulator from the writhing, moaning RPS Pile O' Games this week, as it a) has goats and b) is a boiling crackpot crockpot of perfect insanity. Sir Hayden…

No Turning Back: Goat Simulator’s Amazing Launch Trailer

If you're still somewhat incredulous at the fact that Goat Simulator is actually a thing, don't worry: you're not alone. But as a connoisseur of dumb jokes taken too far and also RPS' official Goatitor-In-Chief, I must say that I'm impressed with this one's dedication to cloven-footed shenanigans. For one, it's basically Just Cause with a goat, which is literally all I've ever wanted from…

Avuncular Return: A Story About My Uncle, Soon For A Buck

I've a few uncles, but if I was to tell a story about one of them, I'd probably pick the one who worked with Patrick Stewart and Sean Bean. Though I can understand why, if given the choice, you might go for the one capable of inter-dimensional travel and grappling hook tomfoolery.A Story About My Uncle was a fun, free, first-person platformer released in 2012.…

Sanctum 2’s “Ruins Of Brightholme” Incoming

The first DLC for Coffee Stain's first-person tower defense sequel, Sanctum 2, is materialising in the shadows of a grimmer version of the game world. According to the devs, Ruins Of Brightholme "takes you to a darker side of the Sanctum universe", and the images they've sent over (more below) seem to confirm that. New towers are "Makeshift Cannon" and "Rupture Mine Tower", and new…

Buckets And Spades: Sanctum 2 Adds Sandbox Mode

The lovely people at Coffee Stain Studios have given their first person tower defence game Sanctum 2 a big giant patch with lots of lovely new updates in it, like pausing (I love a good pause) (.........) and a sandbox, so get out your bucket and spade! What is a sanctum really, you might ask, besides a word that sci fi and fantasy games love…

Enter Their Safe Arms: Sanctum 2 Demo

Very soon I will have finished the first ever Virtual Novel RTS game. This follows hot on the heels of my first ever top-down football manager (you can see the very thin lines of the top edges of the graphs), and the first ever basketball third-person shooter. I WILL CORNER ALL MARKETS! Unfortunately, beating me to the first ever FPS tower defence game (or so…

Feature: A Holding Pattern

Sanctum 2 review

Sanctum was something of a rocket out of left field. There's nothing unusual about tower defence, of course, and the “action” tower defence genre is now setting itself up as a thing, but Sanctum's tight sci-fi world and solid feel set it apart from either tower defence games or FPS titles. That meant popularity, and a lot of players. Sanctum 2, meanwhile, attempts to place…

The Secret Of Super Sanctum TD

Sanctum 2's release is hovering over us like a drone, and that's a good thing, because Dr Smith rather enjoyed the original game, and I've got a kick out of what I've played so far of that shiny sequel. However, there is already something else with the Sanctum name on it on the Steam store page, and that's Super Sanctum TD. And this where things…

Going On The Defensive: Sanctum 2’s First Trailer

Sanctum 2, the follow-up to Coffee Stain Studios' first-person tower defense titan, has been a known quantity for quite some time now - at least, insofar as we know that we know very little about how it all comes together. Sure, Coffee Stain's been running a rather expansive dev blog, but games are sometimes known for their gameplay. Or so I have heard. But enough…

Gimme Shelter: Sanctum 2 In Motion (Probably)

Is this first footage from boots-on-the-ground tower defence sequel Sanctum 2 in-game or pre-rendered? Don't ask me, I'm rapidly losing the ability to tell. Last week Jim showed me an Arma 3 video and I genuinely had to ask if it was from a game or a real recording, even though it featured a man being fired into the sky. I worry about myself, I…

Sci-Free: Sanctum Adds Medals, Gets F2P Weekend

Sanctum 2 is suggestively eyeing 2013 from across the crowded, deafening-dubstep-blaring bar that is time, but the first in its tower defending lineage hasn't gone into cryogenic stasis just yet. Via its IndieDB page, Coffee Stain Studios has announced all sorts of free goodies, just because. Well, maybe not all of the sorts, but those of the progression-based medal and boss-fight-introducing map varieties - so basically the…

In Spiritum Sequitur: Sanctum 2 Announced

Top notch first-person space tower defense malarkey, Sanctum, is going to have a baby! Imagine that. The offspring will take the form of a sequel, which is going to dally with the consoles on the sly but if it's as enjoyable as the original, I'm sure that won't stop us from greeting it with delighted 'awwws' and dreadful babyspeak. Work has already begun at Coffee…

WIN: Sanctum Steam Codes!

Sanctum, the ludicrously pretty first-person tower defence game which we exposed to our critical bits just here, can be won right here, right now! Yes, a dozen lucky RPS-reading webnodes will be able to plug themselves into the game by emailing us the answer to this question: the word "sanctum" means holy site. What is your holy site, readers? You know, the one you would…

Sanctum Gets 4-Player Co-op, 75% Off

You might remember that scintillating pretty FPS-tower defence hybrid Sanctum rather tickled our fancy. Quinns said: "It’s the single best tower defense game I can remember playing since Defense Grid: The Awakening." And it was already co-op, but now it's 4-way co-op thanks to a new patch. And even more enticingly it's now 75% off in the Steam summer sale. £2.50! That is only 250…
