Feature: Atomic mission

ATOM RPG Trudograd is about a third of a game – but a great third

The heavily Fallout-inspired ATOM RPG has been on my "play more" list for almost a year, since I enjoyed a few hours of it but was distracted by something else. It is my fault. I am very distractable. Happily its developers, AtomTeam, have just released a standalone expansion called Trudograd. It entered Steam Early Access on Monday (or you can get it on GOG, if…

Souls-inspired platformer Dark Light enters early access this Friday

Welcome to the year of cyberpunk in which all games must have futuristic tech. Dark Light is another of the sort, though it's calling itself a cyberpunk apocalypse instead of yer usual neon-splattered corporate dystopia. The Dark Souls and Metroid-inspired action game will have you hacking and shooting up invisible baddies when it launches in early access this Friday, May 8th.

Feature: Every dog has his DayZ

Deadside players will commiserate over a dead dog and then stab you

I forgot the name of Deadside within seconds of closing it. Even looking at its store page raises... not alarm bells, exactly, but some negative assumptions. It looks a lot like a lot of other, not very good games fighting for a place in the ultra-hostile, grim Eastern European PvP shooter leagues.But what is it really? Well. It's DayZ again.

Early access review: Lumberjack’s Dynasty

The weirdest thing about Lumberjack's Dynasty – in a very long list of strange things – are the overheard snippets of conversation as you approach the game’s various NPCs. As you round the crest of a hill you might eavesdrop on a neighbour muttering something about how “everyone is talking about it”. Stroll up the drive of your aunt’s house and she’ll be whispering “yes,…

Cheers! Landlord’s Super has entered early access

Oh, it'll be a beaut once it's done. On completion, Landlord's Super promises a mundane fantasy of construction and socialising in your own dismal slice of English decline - seasonal changes, health concerns, rental markets, union interferences and all. But those frivolities can wait. Launching today in Steam Early Access, the Landlord's offering the simpler pleasures right now. Home renovation, and getting absolutely knackered down…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord (early access) review

The best thing I can say about this, the most eagerly awaited medieval ARPG of all time, is that I want to keep playing it. I have played exactly four million games, a number which is only possible when you learn to drop something you're playing without hesitation. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, for all its teething problems, will probably be brilliant when it's finished.

Obsidian’s Grounded will enter early access in July

Obsidian Entertainment tonight announced an early access launch date of July 28th for Grounded, their craft-o-survival game about teenagers shrunk down smaller than ants and turned loose in a back garden. If I've learned anything from the oeuvre of Rick Moranis, is that those kids are in for a tough time. It's a surprising game to see coming from a studio known for RPGs including…

It's brought a whole new Rundown with it too, wiping away the old one to make room for a bunch of new levels. If you've not had the chance to play GTFO yet, it's a super tense co-op experience where you and four friends…

Mount & Blade 2 is promising, but its performance issues are too serious to review it yet

Mount & Blade predates RPS. That's how long we've been waiting for its sequel, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, which released yesterday afternoon.I had hoped to have some basic impressions ready last night, but that wasn't possible, because whatever else I can say about this open world medieval(ish) combat RPG, it's completely overshadowed by technical problems.

Mount & Blade 2 is now out in early access

It's time to saddle up and ride out, for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord entered early access this morning. The long-awaited follow-up to Warband (one of the best RPGs, don't you know?) will once again send us out to ride around a sandbox medieval world, raising armies, politicking, laying siege, and charging around big battlefields with hundreds of soldiers throwing down. But if you'd rather…

Mount & Blade 2 will launch early – a whole one day early

After seven years of waiting, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is finally almost here - and it'll actually be a little early. TaleWorlds Entertainment today announced they're bumping the sandbox warfare RPG's date up, shifting its early access launch from March 31st to March 30th. That's one whole extra day! But hey, each day feels about six years long right now.

Medieval Engineers has ended development with one final small update

After a long silence and one small final update, Keen Software House have declared Medieval Engineers done and shoved it out the door. First launched in 2015, the build 'n' siege sandbox hadn't seen a substantial update in the past year year of early access while Keen focused on its sci-fi sibling, Space Engineers. Keen had insisted that Medieval Engineers wasn't abandoned but now with…

Mount & Blade is a strange series, a big open-world and open-ended sandbox combining bits of empire-building strategy, political manoeuvring, roleplaying, and getting your hands dirty on the battlefield yourself fighting alongside your army. It's also…

How Hades plays with Greek myths

When Supergiant Games started to make Hades, their Rogue-like action-RPG, they had plenty of experience making narrative games. Across Bastion, Transistor and Pyre, they’d found they were pretty good at telling stories. But in a Rogue-like? And what’s that? They intended to put Hades in Early Access? Could they ever fit with the kind of rich characterisation and storytelling that made Supergiant’s name?“We were really…

Dwarf simulation King Under The Mountain adds mod support

King Under The Mountain is a dwarven society simulation game that immediately gives away its Dwarf Fortress inspiration. It's currently still in early access and has just added support for player-made mods. The main game is actually built as a game engine with a "base game" mod applied to it, according to Rocket Jump Technology. The plan is for absolutely anything in the game to…

Roguelike deckbuilding meets board-based battles in Spellsword Cards: DungeonTop

Long ago, Duelyst pioneered the magical game combination of deck and board. You'd build up an arsenal of tricksy monsters, then move them around while thinking about abilities and adjacency bonuses and the safety of your 'you' character. That was against online opponents, but Spellsword Cards: DungeonTop takes the same idea and runs with it through Slay The Spire-like dungeons. The roguelike deckbuilder came out…
