Feature: Far from middling

The good medieval mollusc boys of Inkulinati’s turn-based strategy will leave you feeling giddy

Inkulinati is a turn-based strategy game where you take control of a Master of Living Ink, or Inkulinati, as they’re otherwise known. Inkulinati face off against one another by drawing weird and fantastical beasts on the margins of medieval manuscripts and sending them into battle. It’s basically a fight to the death, but with doodles, and it's all in a stunning art style inspired by…

Feature: I hope there's not a test after this

You Suck At Parking made me really happy to be in a car crash

I've never been so called out by a game name. Look, I took a break from driving for like six months because of the pandemic. You try going that long without having to parallel park, yeah? They say the skill comes back quick but it most certainly does not. Thankfully, Happy Volcano's You Suck At Parking does not actually make you drive a real vehicle.…

Feature: I swear, officer, we only had a few bubblegum flavoured vodkas

Watch me interrogate a teenage perv in cyberpunk detect ’em up Gamedec

For the week that's in it, and this week has huge gaming digi-vent PAX-X-EGX in it, Gamedec has a free demo for you to try. Which I have, in several times. Gamedec is, y'see, a) a detective game that is b) a text heavy RPG without combat and c) offers multiple routes to solutions. As a Venn diagram of my interests, it's almost a perfect…

Inkle on Pendragon: how being evil was the key to making its replayable story click

Turn-based Arthurian legend game Pendragon is the next game from Inkle Studios of Heaven's Vault and 80 Days. RPS chatted with narrative director Jon Ingold at PAX X EGX about its replayable story that—spoiler alert—always ends with a deadly battle between King Arthur and Sir Mordred, and how playing as a villain helped keep the story from going stale over the course of multiple re-tellings.

Feature: It got weird after my friend was turned into a statue of my other friend

I cannot adequately explain Starstruck, but I like whatever it is

Starstruck: Hands Of Time is a cutesy adventure game about going back in time to help some kids save the world.No, that's not right.Starstruck is a rhythm-action game about a guitarist trying to make it big.No, no. Starstruck is a silly rampage game about taking control of a giant hand as it smashes up little model neighbourhoods. Wait, it's actually a slightly dark story about…

Feature: Eight legs but nowhere to run

Terminating spiders in Kill It With Fire has turned me into a monster

I don’t like spiders. Ever since I watched a documentary on TV about the leggy nasties lurking in the rainforest when I was but a high-pitched, impressionable Ed, I’ve become one of those people who scrambles for a paper and cup when a spider’s lurking about. So yes, arachnids raise my blood pressure. Every now and again I consider getting one of those cowardly spider…

Feature: Some place for cowardice

I like everything about No Place For Bravery. Except the combat.

I've been banging my head against the PAX X EGX demo for No Place For Bravery for a while now. It's a very stylish action RPG where you, a warrior with adorable stick-thin legs holding up a big meaty-boi body, are out to rescue your daughter Leaf from grim monsters. You get to execute your enemies after defeating them, and lots of blood gets splashed…

Feature: Take the bunny out of the box

The free demo for Unpacking is good enough to make you enjoy moving house

There are two stages of packing for a move, as everyone knows. The first stage happens when you have loads of time before you have to leave, and is when you box things up in a way that makes sense. You slowly wrap up all but one of each piece of crockery in old wrapping paper and copies of The Metro, and put them in…

Do you want to host a session at PAX Online or EGX Digital?

Submissions for panels, talks, presentations, and other sorts of sessions are currently open for both PAX Online and EGX Digital, which will run concurrently in September as PAX Online x EGX Digital, like some kind of hot collabo or fierce showdown.

EGX confirmed for September 17-20th in London

EGX, the London games show run by our corporate siblings, has announced dates of September 17-20th for this year's show. It's due to return to the ExCeL London in the Docklands. EGX is the boisterous big brother of EGX Rezzed, the more PC-y and indie-ish games show held at London's Tobacco Dock. I know, the names get confusing. Tickets are not yet on sale.
