Dice-rolling dungeon diver Solasta: Crown Of The Magister gets a demo

Solasta: Crown Of The Magister understands something fundamentally important about this medium of ours. Games can be so many things, but sometimes I just want to bash goblins with an axe. While I've become a bit fussier with my tastes in my mid-twenties, I'll always have a soft spot for the time I spent building daft wee Neverwinter Nights 2 adventure modules over an easter…

Signs Of The Sojourner serves up new demo alongside crowdfunding campaign

Conversational deckbuilder Signs Of The Sojourner has a new demo, letting you sling cards and get chatty with various other travellers and some lovely snack salespeople. Who might be the best people to make small talk with, because not only can you explore the game’s themes of changing selfhood, but you get food at the end. If you’ve not seen it in action before, here’s…

Neo Cab has a demo now, and launches in October

You can today hop behind the wheel of the final human-driven taxis in our near-future in a new demo for Neo Cab. That's the chat-o-driver we've cooed at a few times since its announcement in 2018, and it's finally almost here. As well as releasing the demo, developers Chance Agency today announced a release date of October 3rd. Have a peek in the new trailer…

A Plague Tale: Innocence now has a demo

That One Game With The Brilliant Rats, aka A Plague Tale: Innocence, now has a demo so we can all admire the rats. And maybe be drawn into the story of kiddywinkles sneaking through France during the Black Death, pursued by the Inquisition and surrounded by ravenous rats. Even our Alice Bee, who is known to feel nothing for the awful digikids we're forced to…

Anno 1800 has a demo, but only for one week

Ubisoft have launched a week-long demo for Anno 1800, the latest in their city 'n' empire-building game. You've got until Monday to play a Victorian coloniser, wearing silly hats and ruthlessly exploiting resources and people for capital gain. And in the game. It is weird for a demo to be limited in both quantity and time, given how many week-long full-game trials we see these…

Konami kickabout PES 2020 has a demo out now

Ahem - ah, fitbaw! The bootiful game. Nothing better than gathering the crew 'round for a great big kickabout in the park, right? Actually, tell you what, that sounds a bit rubbish right now. It's all wet out, my spiked shoes are all busted up, and Mister Johnson's not given the ball back since we kicked it into his cabbage patch. How's about some eFootball…

Body-ballooning shooter Morphie’s Law is now out on PC

Mind when games had big head mode? Morphie's Law: Remorphed is a bit like that, but with your character's whole body. The RPS treehouse have had our eyes on this body-morphing multiplayer game for a while: it's a third-person shooter where blasting someone's body-part causes it to shrink and yours to grow. For example - shot someone in the foot? Congratulations, you'll be needing bigger…

Square Enix JRPG Oninaki has a daemon-infested demo out now

Kagachi understands the freelance life. It's tough stuff, I know: trading out jobs, pushing yourself to breaking point. Allowing haunted fiends from beyond the grave to possess you and change your career goals. Don't believe me? You can put in an hour-and-a-half right now. Oninaki is the latest game from Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory - the bit of Squeenix that makes more of those…

Eve: Aether Wars invites pilots to next month’s 10,000 player dogfight

Whew, hard to believe it, but this will be my last news post for RPS for the foreseeable future. Fitting, then, that it's about going large and loud and blotting out the heavens themselves with explosions. Eve: Aether Wars is a collaborative tech demo/stress test run by Eve Online developers CCP and cloud networking techies Hadean, researching new ways to cram even more players onto…

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine spins some Chinese American yarns

Dim Bulb's quiet and contemplative story tell 'em up Where The Water Tastes Like Wine is still out there, trudging down America's dusty depression-era roads, collecting and telling stories. Today, it has a few new ones to tell. Today's Gold Mountain Update adds an official Chinese localisation, produced by a crew of dedicated Chinese-speaking fans led by one Ryan Zhang. More importantly for English-speakers, it…

Jupiter Hell summons players for a weekend demo

Let's not beat around the bush; Jupiter Hell is a spiritual sequel to Doom: The Roguelike, aka DoomRL (aka DRL post-lawyering), and that's plenty of reason to play it. You can try it out right now, though the gates of hell will snap shut again at 6pm BST on Monday, July 8th. If you want to shotgun some demons in tactical, turn-based fashion, there's just one…

Attack On Titan 2: Final Battle expands into the third season today

While the manga may have fallen down a dark and nationalist hole, Attack On Titan's escalating human-on-giant war makes for some fun games. Attack On Titan 2: Final Battle is a re-release of Omega Force's Attack On Titan 2, bundled with a new expansion covering everything in the anime series so far, adding some interesting new modes besides. If you already have Attack On Titan 2,…

Ode To A Moon’s free demo is uncannily psychedelic

I'm not rad keen on the word psychedelic. It means too many different things to too many different people. One person might deploy the word as hip shorthand for "unsettlingly colourful", and another might think you're talking about a profound substance-induced journey into the inner machinations of the soul. Both of these imaginary people are being silly. That needed saying, because the free ten-minute demo…

The Fromto demo is a lot of scribbly, messy party platformer fun

Scribbly party puzzle platformer Fromto isn't out until later this year, but its dad-and-his-kids dev team just rolled out a demo on Steam to test your friendships. Reminding me of anarchic platformer Transformice (although Studio Erikson cite Ultimate Chicken Horse, Worms and Trackmania as inspirations), it's a local or online multiplayer platform racer. Drive your bouncy car around a 2D maze, hit checkpoints, then to…

Daedalus: The Awakening Of Golden Jazz stakes out a demo before launch next week

Detective adventure Alternate Jake Hunter: Daedalus - The Awakening of Golden Jazz (to use its headline-bloating full title) makes the leap to PC next week, but investigative sorts can sleuth around its free demo today. Prequel to Neilo's long-running Jake Hunter series (known as Detective Saburo Jinguji in Japan), it's a conversation-heavy point and click mystery. Released on consoles late last year, the PC version arrives on…

Meet angsty Ellen Page and her spooky ghostpal in the Beyond: Two Souls demo

Following the PC debut of Heavy Rain earlier this week, developers Quantic Dream are now offering a demo slice of their next former-PlayStation-exclusive, Beyond: Two Souls. This is the one where Ellen Page plays a teenager with a spooky ghostpal that gets her into all sorts of scrapes, not to mention a wacky government programme overseen by the Green Goblin himself, Willem Dafoe. The one…

PuzzleTales is a choose-your-own-brainteaser browser adventure with a demo

Maybe it's John Walker's lingering influence, but I've been on a bit of a puzzle bender, and PuzzleTales scratches that itch nicely. Part sci-fi short story, part traditional puzzle-book with a little bit of branching game-book to it if you're smart enough to figure out alternate solutions. The brainchild of author Lavie Tidhar and puzzle-smith Jake Olefsky, it's perhaps more videogame-adjacent than anything with bleeps…

Totally Reliable Delivery Service wobbles awkwardly into open beta

The humble fetch quest - mindless fodder for an MMORPG hero, but a terrifying ordeal for the wobbly balloon people of Totally Reliable Delivery Service. While playable solo or in split-screen for up to four, We're Five Games want to test the networking for their flailing comedy deliver 'em up. That's good for us, as it means we can all try it free. Starting today…

Soulash aims for world domination with its first paid alpha

Soulash, by Wizards Of The Code, made a great first impression when its first demo version landed last month, with a fresh set of ideas under its chunky ASCII art. Now the villainous survival roguelike (although it bends the definition a little by not having randomly generated maps) has a paid version, an updated demo (free on Itch), and a much larger world to explore.…
