Space Crew is the sequel to Bomber Crew, with a demo soon

Bomber Crew was already a bit FTL-like, and its sequel is leaning in. Space Crew swaps the original's World War 2 setting for outer space, but otherwise still looks to be a strategy game about telling your vessel's crew what to do as you launch missiles and catch fire. The announcement trailer can be found below.

The official Peaky Blinders game looks a bit like Shadow Tactics

I enjoyed the BBC's Peaky Blinders so much that I nearly went to its official festival. They do up Digbeth to look like post-war Birmingham, and recruit bands like Primal Scream. Everyone walks around in tailcoats. I am a fool for not going when I had the chance, but at least I'll soon get to tour pretend post-war Birmingham in a videogame. Peaky Blinders: Mastermind…

Ruin a perfectly good Valentine’s date with Table Manners today

"What if QWOP but Tinder?" is not a question I have ever asked and did not ever want the answer to but here we have it nevertheless. As if going on a first date with a stranger weren't stressful enough, Table Manners turns it into a full-on disaster with slapstick physics. I can imagine getting partway through one of these dates and pulling a full-on…

Narcos: Rise Of The Cartels shoots itself in the foot, one unit at a time

I have never watched Narcos, the television program about bad drugsmen with guns being stopped by maybe-not-as-bad lawsmen with guns. After playing the recently-released turn-based tactics 'em up Narcos: Rise Of The Cartel, I have little desire to. I mean, this could be one of those times where TV is all nuanced and considered, while videogames just toss out lines like "pick off those rats…

Feature: In honour of His Souliness

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Table Manners trailer shows how physics can make any date a disaster

We’re at a glorious place in history where anything can be a simulation. Table Manners is a game where you’re sat across from a potential paramour on a mission to woo them with your incredible etiquette. The problem: everything is hooked into wonky physics, and your expensive bottle of bubbly might be needed to put out a fire or three. Life is a terrifying thing…

The Autonauts trailer shows a cute colony sim where you’ll try to automate everything

Autonauts is a sweet game about planetary colonisation. You'll land on uninhabited worlds and begin to inhabit them by building what you need. But you don't do it all by hand. The goal is to automate the process, creating and programming worker bots to process the raw materials into a self-sustaining world. As always, the route to colonisation starts with a pie recipe, and it's…

American Fugitive raises a ruckus on PC today

When American Fugitive was announced - a game about escaping from jail, staying one step ahead of the cops and avenging your dad's death - I didn't expect it to be as big a tribute to Grand Theft Auto as we've got at launch today, despite obvious similarities. Still, those looking for something more in the vein of earlier GTA games, where the cars were…

Feature: Get a bit of colour in ya

Have You Played… Hue?

Hue is an delightful puzzle game which is incredibly bright and colourful (unsurprisingly), where you progress by changing the colour of the background. At its core it’s quite a sad game. You’re searching for your missing mother, and you uncover her story as you go. This takes you through various themes of love, loss, remorse, and existence. It might be sad, but damn it’s beautiful.

Feature: Standing together

How multiplayer fell into Human: Fall Flat

Obviously, obviously, Human: Fall Flat is primed for multiplayer. It’s a knockabout physics game in which you play as a wobbly non-Newtonian man. He’s ungainly and awkward to control and, for heck’s sake, Gang Beasts showed how funny that combination is when several players get together. Yet developer Tomas Sakalauskas never really saw his game like that. Human Fall Flat was meant to be a…

The Monday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS video department

In case you live under a mossy rock, or aren't subscribed to Rock Paper Shotgun on YouTube (if not, why not?), I've got you covered. It's the weekly round-up of everything that happened last week on our channel. We do have our very own video corner on the site, so be sure to check back to that throughout the week to see what we're up…

Rafting adventure The Flame in the Flood is free today

Is it any wonder that people are struggling to sell games when everyone and their dog is just throwing lovely free stuff at us? This time, they even threw in the dog to sweeten the deal. Apocalyptic rafting survival adventure The Flame in The Flood is free for the next 48 hours (minus a couple) via the Humble store, and you should probably pick it…

For The King is ascending out of Early Access next week

Hex-based tactical dungeon crawler For The King has been rattling around on Steam's Early Access section since February of last year, charming folks with its stylish texture-lite aesthetics and its compelling mix of freeform adventuring and uncompromising tabletop-inspired combat, where things are seldom far from a bad turn. IronOak Games reckon that their first baby is just about ready to take its first steps into the…

The Joy of Serial Cleaner’s utter silliness

Chores are not supposed to be enjoyable. At home, stacks of unwashed bowls, cups and cutlery flood the sink, with the occasional fly fluttering about in search of a morsel. It’s only when I run out of clean plates that I wearily make my way there, caterwauling as I wash the dishes out of sheer necessity. But when staring at the bloodshed of Serial Cleaner,…

Smoke and Sacrifice blends story into a survival sandbox

There are very few truly original ideas, and fewer still in games. The survival sandbox genre as we know it now is the result of a thousand micro-evolutions, ideas bolted onto each other, and talent transferring between studios.As such, Smoke and Sacrifice's initial similarities to Klei's excellent Don't Starve aren't that surprising, and are hard to hold against it when the game looks this pretty…

I am so bad at Bomber Crew I failed to drop any bombs

I'm going to tell you about the time my Bomber Crew accidentally dropped a food parcel on Birmingham. But first, a tragic tale.A spitfire has gone down somewhere in the English Channel and it falls to my crew to rescue the pilot who is bobbing around in the water. We'll need to fend off enemy fighters while dumping survival packs into the water in the…

Bomber Crew goes up tiddley up up in October

Flying missions in the upcoming strat-o-sim Bomber Crew [official site] is quite cartoony, in that you can do things like send crew members out on your World War 2 bomber's wing to fix a burning engine. It's also quite complex and serious, in that your plane can get duffed up enough to need to do that and you'll die terribly if not. Bomber Crew looks…

Feature: What Mr. Wolf Did In 1971

Serial Cleaner review

I don't like it when I don't know if I like something or not. After this many years of wibbling about games, I feel as though my Iron Hammer Of Judgement should be absolute. With 70s-styled stealth puzzle game Serial Cleaner [official site], though, I am confounded. Time and again, I fire it up and my brain clearly tells me "yeah, I really dig this",…

Serial Cleaner crosses over with Alien and Suspiria

Stealthy crimescene cleanup game Serial Cleaner will leave early access next week and, it turns out, have cheeky bonus levels. While the game stars a cleaner (in the criminal sense) sneaking around murder scenes to remove bodies, blood, and other evidence, it'll go a little fancier with bonus levels inspired by unlikely movies. Alien, Star Wars, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Suspiria are among…
