Double Fine Presents “doesn’t make sense” anymore, says Tim Schafer

Indies, eh? They're not just developers these days. Since 2014, Double Fine have published a wildly diverse range of indies under the Double Fine Presents label. Their latest, charming Cornish adventure Knights And Bikes definitely has that recognisably Double Fine quirkiness, but they've also pushed some properly weird little curiosities like Kids and Mountain. But Double Fine are with the big dogs now. The next…

Knights And Bikes starts its Cornish childhood adventure today

The gorgeous Knights And Bikes launched today, inviting us to join the adorable adventures of two kids (with cooperative multiplayer) in a Cornish caravan park in the 1980s. Ride bikes! Play frisbee! Splash in puddles! Befriend a goose! Hunt for treasure! Battle baddies! Try not to get evicted! I feel like I've been watching this game for positively yonks, yet today's launch was somehow a…

It is alright: Kids released

At last, when people ask if I'm planning to have kids, I'll be able to say I've already 100-percented it then run away cackling into the night. That's thanks to today's launch of Kids, another "interactive animation" collaboration between the folks behind 2015's Plug & Play. The RPS rabble who played Kids at EGX Rezzed this year declared it one of their favourite games of…

New Humble Bundle offers Gang Beasts, Gnog, and… Everything

An eclectic mix of decent games including local multiplayer sillyfighter Gang Beasts, head-spinning puzzler Gnog, and everything simulator Everything are bagged up together in the latest Humble Bundle at a good price. The Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle is its name, gathering games Double Fine published rather than ones they've made themselves. They have an unusual eye like few other 'indie' publishing labels, though they…

Feature: My favourite is Clomper

Ooblets aims to be more than the sum of its influences

Chickadingding, Fleeble, Gullysplot, Plob. “Why, the good people of Rock Paper Shotgun have finally lost it!” you might cry. But these nonsense words are poised to become household names. They’re the names of a selection of Ooblets, the titular cutesie creatures of Glumberland’s upcoming town life indie game. If you’ve seen any of the grassroots marketing behind Ooblets, you already have an idea of the…

Blood-drenched party platformer Samurai Gunn 2 blasts and cuts onto PC in 2019

Blink-and-you're-dead party platformer Samurai Gunn is getting a sequel, and this time there's a story mode to stab your way through either solo or with a friend. Announced during today's Nintendo indie showcase (and confirmed to be bound for PC), Samurai Gunn 2 is headed our way early next year. I've only had a few chances to play the original with a full compliment of…

Double Fine decide to have Kids

Their own output might be spottier than a ladybird farm, but Double Fine most certainly have an eye for a great concept, both in their self-made games and the select few they publish. Gang Beasts, Mountain, Everything, Thoth and the upcoming Ooblets and Knights and Bikes all came up through the Double Fine Presents programme, and joining that number is the cute-but-haunting Kids. It's an…

Gnog’s pretty puzzleheads opening up in November

The pretty puzzleheads of Gnog will finally come to PC some time in November. Ko_op's Gnog traps us inside giant monstrous heads, where I suppose our objective is to escape but that seems a lot less fun than messing about. Like Windosill and games by Vectorpark, solving puzzles feels secondary to poking around, fiddling with things to discover delightful consequences. Here, peep this:

Gang Beasts hurls free trial weekend into the arena

Hurling your mate through a plate glass window, into a grinder, or off a speeding van is somehow even more fun in Gang Beasts [official site] than in real life. It's a wonderfully daft multiplayer brawler about gelatinous squishmen who have your usual punches and kicks but, crucially, have a button to grip - meaning you can grab onto anything and everyone, tossing people around…
