Feature: Obvious beauty

Gris review

Matthew played a preview of Gris and loved it, and John played a longer preview build of Gris and found it beautiful but empty. And after playing the full review build, wot I think is that it is empty, but I don’t mind that. It’s so beautiful that it functions as a thing just to be looked at, and that works even in the empty…

Feature: I'm so sorry, GLaDOS

Playing Observation has made me question my treatment of rogue AIs

Whenever I ask Siri -- other virtual helpers are available -- to do something for me, I always say please and thank you. I tell people this is because I don’t want to get into the habit of barking orders at Siri, and thus people in real life. The actual reason is that I want Siri to think of me kindly when they gain sentience…

Enter The Gungeon DLC canned in favour of new projects and one final update

Enter The Gungeon developers Dodge Roll have announced via Reddit that their plans to release a paid expansion to their popular bullet hell roguelike have been cut short. Instead, they're going to re-focus on producing one final update to polish up the game as much as they can before they go all-in on their next game. The devs say that just looking at their latest…

Have You Played… Hatoful Boyfriend?

You know that Netflix true crime documentary Evil Genius? Like, you watch it and every episode there’s a twist so off the wall that it’s basically formed a new floor, and there was no way you could have predicted it? And you’re like “Okay, but no way there’ll be another twist like that in the next episode?” That experience is similar to playing Hatoful Boyfriend.

Feature: Pretty vacant

Gris looks just so beautiful, but just so empty

I am so torn by the huge stretch of Gris that I've played. Vastly more than we'd usually expect from a preview, given to us peculiarly close to its 13th December release. I've seen an awful lot of this enemy-less platformer, and yet I still can't tell whether it's beautiful enough to forgive all else, or just too dull to excuse.

By using Reigns: Game of Thrones to figure out Game of Thrones, I know everyone is terrible

I stopped watching Game of Thrones around the start of season three, because there were too many people and I couldn’t remember who most of them were or why anything they did might be significant (broad exceptions: the dragon lady; the incest twins and their sandwich son; Jon Sner). I don’t really think Game of Thrones translates well to being a game of games, for…

Reigns: Game of Thrones sets familiar heads rolling today

Monarchic decide 'em up Reigns was always close in spirit to Game Of Thrones. Thanks to a cross-promotion deal that I'm certain someone sold their soul for, they're now one and the same, and out today. Reigns: Game Of Thrones combines the Tinder-inspired UI of Nerial's series with the multiple perspectives and familiar world of HBO's wildly successful TV novel adaptation. The game lets players…

Observation is a sci-fi thriller from the makers of Stories Untold

What would you do in HAL 9000's position? Beyond venting everyone into space, I mean - that's the question that Observation looks to be posing. Announced today and due out early next year, it's a sci-fi thriller from No Code, creators of the excellent Stories Untold. Similar to their previous game, it's an adventure where you're cleverly limited in your interaction with the world. In…

The Thursday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS video department

Whew, Thursday already? How did we get here? For those of you who enjoy our video matinees, or for those who didn’t even know we had a YouTube channel (you can subscribe here, by the way), here’s this week's. Yeah it’s a bit late, but we’ve been pretty busy -- you’ll see why on Friday -- and Matthew’s off trying not to get killed in…

Survival sandbox Scum adds rude gestures, cave networks and human skin masks

Scum may be detailed enough to let you urinate or even defecate on your foes, but that requires you to be up close. A raised middle finger? Well, that's your new ranged option for offensive offending. In today's early access update, prisoners attempting to survive the zombie and robot-infested hell that is Gamepires's Scum have a few new options. These include hiding in caves, making…

Come round to mine for a fight in Absolver’s Downfall update

Hey, what are y-- get out of my house. No, I meant the mine, where the miners work. Not my house. Get off my armchair, stop eating my -- oh, okay, one fight, but then you’ve really got to go. This free update in Absolver won’t news itself. The skinny fighting game has just added new kicks and Bruce Lee punches and armour and powers,…

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…

Feature: Spawn in 60 seconds

Minit consumes your precious time in gleefully silly ways

Chances are you’ve caught wind of Minit between its initial release and the clamor for a Switch port. It’s a wee, wonderful, one-bit adventure where, thanks to a cursed blade, you die every 60 seconds. While it’s a romping hoot of a game, it also blatantly wastes your time. I mean that in a good way: Minit tosses away precious seconds with so many fun,…

Absolver goes into the mines for some nice new shoes this month

Oh my, are you really wearing THAT to your big fight? You need a new scarf, mate. And those scruffy elbow pads will simply not do. Lucky for you, fashionable fighting game (f)Absolver is getting its free expansion in a couple of weeks, now with a proper release date. It’s coming out September 25, say developers Sloclap in a post on the PlayStation blog. This…

Pikuniku is an absurd world of armless, funny Mr Men

Oh no, the village bridge is broken. But that's okay, I'll ask for help from the spider in this tree. Come down mister spider, and help me fix the bridge. “Did you break it?” he asks. Yes, I say. I walked across the bridge – really just a piece of string – and it snapped. “Fix your own damn mess!” I consider his words carefully.…

Premature Evaluation: Scum

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s trying to lead a healthier, happier life in Scum, the multiplayer survival sim. Scum’s wall of data is mesmerising. From the moment I arrived on the island, every spare second, and even seconds I couldn’t spare, was dedicated to staring at it. The readings and statistics told…

Scum adds anti-cheat to fight the real scum

It's always galling to be murdered when you're on the pot, but doubly so when killed by a cheater. The 'DayZ but with robots and pooing' survival sandbox Scum has (hopefully?) solved that shitty problem over the weekend by adding anti-cheat tech, which is a feature I'm honestly surprised to hear a high-profile murderous multiplayer game had launched without. Known cheats for Scum included an…

Gato Roboto reveals itself as the next evolution in Meowtroidvania design

Devolver Digital aren't going to let Metroidvania Month (seriously, how many have there been?) end without having the last laugh. Announced just before we tick over to September, Gato Roboto is a cute little low-fi metroidvania being developed by mysterious newcomers Doinksoft. It stars a precocious feline that somehow ends up driving a honking great suit of gun-toting power armour, instead of just pissing in…

Ninja platformer The Messenger is out now

I am officially declaring this Metroidvania Month. As much as The Messenger is openly inspired by Tecmo's merciless Ninja Gaiden games, a little ninja bird tells me that it, too, blossoms into a non-linear platform adventure, joining a long list of similar launches this August. Out now, The Messenger is the debut game from new studio Sabotage. Players bounce and stab their way through a…

Survival sandbox Scum enters early access and looks a lot like DayZ

Survival sandbox Scum may boast astonishingly detailed health management systems (shown above) but under that veneer of hyper-complexity beats a familiar heart. Published by Devolver Digital and entering early access today, Scum resembles zombie survive 'em up DayZ, brief source of zeitgeist before battle royale shooters took over. Set in a massive open-air prison, up to 64 players per server try to feed, clothe and…
