We’re talking with the Gunpoint & Heat Sig dev at Rezzed

You might know Tom Francis as the designer of noir rewire-'em-up Gunpoint and the stealthy spaceship invasion of Heat Signature. You might know him as the writer of the What Works And Why column around these parts. At this year's EGX Rezzed you can know him by hearing him talk on stage with Adam about the challenges of building a procedural galaxy, his design philosophy,…

Win tickets for EGX Rezzed 2018 and see us talk to the developer of Into The Breach

EGX Rezzed is just over a month away, and announcements for things to see and do at the lovely games event are coming thick and fast. For example: this post, in which I let slip that Adam will be on stage during the show to talk to Subset Games' co-founder Matthew Davis about his work on mech strategy game Into The Breach. If you're interested…

Rezzed lines up six more games including Disco Elysium

Are you going to the glittering Imperial city of London next month for games show EGX Rezzed? I’m not. I’ve got a stag weekend in Madrid where I’m expected to play Gaelic football with a crowd of storming drunks. Trust me, you’re better off in the bright glass hallways of Tobacco Dock, especially now that six more games have been added to the line-up, including…

We’re talking with Truck Simulator devs at Rezzed

Our Adam once told a story in the RPS treehouse about meeting with folks from Truck Simulator developers SCS Software, who were surprised and somewhat confused by how much we're into their virtuatrucks in totally non-ironic ways as chillout games. We really are. (Well, when we're not modding horns into alien wails.) You'll get to see this encounter happen again live on stage in April…

Mavericks: Proving Grounds talking 400-player battle royale at Rezzed

What do you get if you cross a video games show with a 400-player battle royale game? A newly-announced session at EGX Rezzed in April where a developer will gab about the upcoming Mavericks: Proving Grounds. The Plunk 'em up will use Improbable's much-vaunted SpatialOS cloud server technology for fancy features like trackable persistent footprints and destructible buildings, so even if you're not interested in…

Phoenix Point will be playable at EGX Rezzed

Our corporate siblings who run EGX Rezzed go on about how it's a games show with all sorts of video games to play and talks to hear, but in reality it's a front. Rezzed exists because we believe you will pay money to breathe the same air as RPS staffers, getting some of our air inside you and some of yours in us, but both…

EGX Rezzed 2018 unveils Leftfield Collection lineup

The best part of EGX Rezzed, the London-based games event in April run by our corporate siblings, is always the Leftfield Collection. I don't know if The Man will allow me to say that, but it is. Come at me, The Man. Meet me in the car park and bring HR to referee. Leftfield is the showcase of smaller and stranger games curated by Feral…

Hey, devs! EGX Rezzed 2018’s Leftfield Collection submission are now open

Hey, you: do you make video games? If so, nice. Thanks. Thank you for the video games. Keep it up. A follow-up: perhaps consider submitting your game for inclusion in the Leftfield Collection at EGX Rezzed in London next year. Rezzed is a games show organised by our adoptive corporate parent Gamer Network, and Leftfield is the best bit. It brings together, and I quote,…

Battalion 1944 is bringing the fight to EGX Rezzed

Battalion 1944 [official site] managed to get onto my good side within seconds of poring over the website for details. It does that by dispensing with buffs and unlocks, in an attempt to deliver a purely skill-based multiplayer shooter. It looks cracking too, with tight maps based on actual WWII locations. The proof, as ever, will be in the pudding though, and you'll be able…

Paradox are bringing devs and games to Rezzed

As long-time readers will know, I don't believe there's any possibility of a party unless someone brings a strategy game to the dancefloor. This year, EGX Rezzed is going to be party central. For the first time, Paradox will have a presence at the show, in the form of three playable games (including the just-announced Steel Division: Normandy 44's multiplayer) and two developer sessions. They're…

Oi Indies: EGX Rezzed Leftfield Collection Submissions Open

I think the best thing about Rezzed, (now EGX Rezzed) is the Leftfield Collection. In the midst of a busy show floor of flashing lights and expensive backdrops is a corridor of indie games. Yes, that corridor is always too narrow, and yes, if only the devs would put more effort into decorating their section of wall, but don't underestimate what that space is: it's…
