Everything review

I am a spruce beetle. I call to two other spruce beetles nearby and now I am all of them. I tell them to dance and they begin to skitter of their own volition, making concentric circles and infinity signs and all manner of patterns. Each time a circle fills at the top of the screen - the only visible UI element - I press…

Full Throttle Remastered review

Full Throttle Remastered [official site] is the return of perhaps the most under-appreciated of the classic 90s LucasArts adventures. Double Fine's remastering will hopefully go a long way to seeing it gain a reputation among a new generation. Here's wot I think:

Vroom! Full Throttle Remastered roars out today

Today I'm wearing my leather jacket and trying to convince Cara to bop me with a plank then toss me into a bin, celebrating the launch of Full Throttle Remastered [official site]. Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions have updated and re-released LucasArts' 1995 stonking adventure game, which Tim Tam led development on back in his LucasArts days. Parts of Full Throttle always niggled and annoyed…

Everything in the RPS Cave of Wonders at Rezzed

This is a post with a very clever title! The last game featured in our RPS Cave of Wonders at Rezzed this week is Everything, David OReilly's gorgeous interactive nature simulation where you can skip up or down in scale to make discoveries and roam an entire universe. BUT! It's also a good point to remind you of everything that will be joining Everything in…

Everything has the best animated animals anywhere

We've already heard whispers about Everything, notably that it is coming to PS4 before Windows and Mac. Now, along with a lengthy new trailer, the release date has been announced. It'll be coming to PS4 on March 21st and to Steam on April 21st. But what is…

Full Throttle Remastered rides again in April

The Polecats will ride again, with flash new jackets, on April 18th. That's the release date announced today for Full Throttle Remastered [official site], Double Fine's revamp of LucasArts' fan-flipping-tastic 1995 adventure game about futurebikers. After 22 years, it still has one of the finest openings in games.

Cuteness overwhelming in Ooblets trailer

Every now and then, in this vast hall of GIFs we call the internet, I see the mini-monsters and dancing townsfolk of Ooblets [official site] and it makes me feel good about life. It’s an as-yet-unreleased game of farming, raising creatures, and living among the townsfolk of ‘Hubton’. “It’s sort of like Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing meets the weird awkward people we…

Psychonauts 2 peeks at pretty plants, picks up publisher

You like rocks? I'll show you nice rocks. You like trees? I'll show you nice trees. You like squirrels? I'll show you nice squirrels. All these and more are in a new Psychonauts [official site] dev video showing an art test of a quarry environment. It's not a finished level, just Double Fine feeling out the game's style, but some pretty stuff is in there.…

A first peek at Full Throttle Remastered, a bit late

Reader dearest, I fall upon my sword before you. I hurl myself upon it. I take a running start and leap upon my sword. Through the teeth and past the gums, look out guts here it comes and I'm split from the skull down, intestines and shame and regret and apologies spill steaming upon the ground, dissolving into putrid black mucus the cold earth swallows…

GNOG’s Puzzleheads Still Look Delightful

I am quite keen to rummage in the giant puzzleheads of GNOG [official site]. They're teeny little rooms with plenty of things to press, pull, flip, open, rotate, lift, twist, twirl, plug in, and generally fiddle with. Developers Ko-op Mode have cited inspirations including Windosill and Polly Pocket toys and yes, that all sounds splendid. It looks gorgeous too. Check out this new trailer:

Can Videogames Teach You Programming?

if(desire_to_program > 10)     continue; else     return; When I tell people I'm a programmer, I get that look. The glazed eyes, the polite smile, the clear desire to change topic. If I'm lucky, I'll get pitched on an idea for the next killer mobile app that my conversation partner insists will make us rich; if I'm less lucky, I'll get wrangled into providing free tech support…

Psychonauts 2 Backers Can Be Investors, Says Regulator

Many backers who funded Psychonauts 2 on the crowdfunding site Fig are now considered 'investors', says a US regulatory body, paving the way for them to get a return in real money if the game sells well. Fig is a video games-focused fundraising site partly founded by a bunch of veteran developers including Brian Fargo and Tim Schafer. It lets you throw some quids into…

Thanks, Oth: 140 Dev Announces New Shmup, Thoth

Platform game 140 got Graham a-groovin' and a-boppin' back in 2013 with cheery rhythmic bouncing quite different to designer Jeppe Carlsen's work on gothdeath bouncer Limbo. Well, the years since then have seen Carlsen release another grimgrim platformer with the Limbo lot, Inside, and apparently work on another colourful project of his own. Over the weekend, Carlsen announced Thoth [Steam page], a colourful shoot 'em…

Doublefine’s Robotic Bodysnatcher: Headlander

Headlander [official site] made me think of Wall-E, except there's only one human left in the robot-run offworld colony. Technically, the bots are humans of a sort, the entire race having transferred their consciousness from its fleshy confines into new robotic bodies. Those robots are under the authority of a wicked computer and it's up to the last meat-person (YOU) to save the day. Problem…

Watch Half An Hour Of Double Fine’s Headlander

Oh, hallo there! You've caught me tidying up the last of the E3 stuff on my desk. Sweeping away Tunnock's Teacake wrappers, mostly. But this? Ah yes, this is a half-hour of gameplay footage from Double Fine's Headlander [official site]. Yes, I'd also almost forgotten they were making it. Headlander is a side-scrolling action-adventure about the decapitated head of the last living human romping through…

Day Of The Tentacle Remastered review

It’s frightening to realise that Day Of The Tentacle Remastered [official site] is a reworking of a game that's been in my top five games since I first played it, a whopping 23 years ago. And a game that for the better part of the last decade, has been near impossible to buy or play. With Double Fine’s Remaster updating or restoring its graphics, music…

Mountain Creator Announces He’s Making… Everything

Working with Double Fine, David OReilly has announced his next project following 2014's RPS-adored Mountain. And it's called Everything [official site]. And appears to be promising... everything. A game in which you can play as everything in the game. Announced as a PS4 exclusive, we poked Double Fine with the patented Rock, Paper, Shotgun Really Pointy Stick (RPSRPS) until they confessed that "exclusive" means "for…
