Feature: Is this real life?

Podcast episode 109: the living a normal life special… live!

This week, we at the Electronic Wireless Show were digital innovators and did our podcast live and on camera as part of PAX X EGX. It went really well and there were no slight technical hitches where my camera kept resizing itself on screen for a bit near the start. Our theme was simulation games, partly so I could talk about The Sims a lot,…

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…

Watch the Foundation devs show me how to play their game competently for EGX Digital

It is no secret that I both really love early-access medieval city-builder Foundation, and am also not very good at it. Luckily, I was able to wrangle Polymorph Games' creative director Philippe Dion and community manager Andy Ashton to show me how it's done, in a combined interview and let's play for EGX Online.
