RPS Verdict: Wilmot’s Warehouse

Alice Bee: Hello Brendy and Nate! We're here to discuss what we ultimately think of Wilmot's Warehouse, our Can't Stop Playing for the month of September. Next week we will choose a brand new game, so as a final tribute we are here to deliver an RPS Verdict for the sweet organise-a-warehouse 'em up that is Wilmot. We'd been planning to do this verdict chat…

Clowns, dog food and Christmas Miracles: the secret history of Wilmot’s Warehouse

You might not be surprised to learn that Wilmot’s Warehouse, the charming object-categorisation game we’ve been banging on about this month, was inspired by (wait for it) working in a warehouse. Co-creator Richard Hogg worked in warehouses for Asda and Boots in his teens, before moving on to work for a film stills library after graduating. “I loved that job,” he recalls, wistfully. “In fact,…

Feature: Road worrier

Overland review

I spent a non-zero amount of time over the weekend imagining a dark future where the incredible popularity of Twitter account Can You Pet The Dog? led scores of indie developers to include ill-fitting snozzle-scratching mechanics in their games. Should this dark time of Very Good Boys come to pass, a game you couldn’t accuse of jumping on the dog wagon is Finji’s Overland, since…

Bags packed, dogs fed, shotguns loaded: strategy road trip Overland sets off

Are road trips even fun? It's certainly a nice thought, tearing down a sunlit road with your mates, chugging brews in the back and tunes on the CD player. But I can't think of any I've been on that aren't outright misery, crammed in the back on a family jaunt across the country, parents arguing over a map while the sausage rolls start stinking up…

Podcast: Why we can’t stop playing Wilmot’s Warehouse

 You are handed a box. Inside, another hour of ceaseless chatter from three folks on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. Oh no, where re you supposed to put this? Maybe it should go next to the knives in the "dangerous items" pile. Or you could store it beside the tennis rackets in "hobby equipment". Oh hell, let's just make a whole new…

Feature: Unboxing the message

Wilmot’s Warehouse’s motivational posters are a deadpan anti-reward

Could you pass me that block of cheese? No, the other one, the blue one. No, that's a slice of cake. The chee-- oh, for heaven's sake, I'll get it myself. Honestly, you shouldn't be playing sorting simulator Wilmot's Warehouse with an attitude like that. You're clearly not enthusiastic about the minimalist pile 'em up we can't stop playing. Maybe a few of its motivational…

Feature: This is your brain on Wilmot

Wilmot’s Warehouse review

For the first three and a half billion years of its history, life on earth was fairly dull. It was, essentially, a load of little blobs mucking around in a great big sea. But then, five hundred million years ago, the Cambrian Explosion happened. Despite its name, it was not a sick wrestling move, but a sudden evolutionary riot, in which life diversified into a…

Can’t Stop Playing: Wilmot’s Warehouse

Time, once again, to reveal our Can't Stop Playing for this month. The announcement is coming a bit late because we had some trouble deciding for September, but then we looked at what we'd been writing about and, shockingly, playing, and there was really only one option. Who could have thought that pushing boxes around a black room would have us so completely in its…

Timelapses in Wilmot’s Warehouse are supremely satisfying

If you do not understand the low-key cerebral pleasure of inventory management, then what are you even doing playing videogames? Get out. Everyone else, welcome to Wilmot's Warehouse. A whole game about fiddling with your inventory and wrestling for space amid piles of bananas and hair dryers. It's basically a giant version of that suitcase in Resident Evil 4 that holds all of Leon Kennedy's…

Overland’s long and winding road to release ends this autumn

Beautiful murderbugs vs Americana turn-based strategy vs roguelike Overland is a game I've blown hot and cold on. I dig the theme, I dig the permanence and agonies of a perilous journey in which you make terrible mistakes and terrible sacrifices, and oh boy do I dig the art. But I've grown increasingly unconvinced by its artificial inventory restrictions, said agonies so dependent on the…

Overland has been left in the dust by Into The Breach

The last time I played sunset-hued, post-apocalyptic survival-strategy affair Overland in earnest, back in the pre-apocalypse of 2016, I liked it a lot. In the mid-apocalypse of 2019, I only like it a little. Something's changed - and it's not Overland. It's not me either, though I'll admit to a certain amount of frenzied shrieking about the passage the time once I realised how long…

Priceless Play – September 15th 2018

Since moving to California, I find myself missing the seasons. I grew up in Virginia, where the leaves change colour every September. When living in England, there was a yearly rotation of scarves and heavy coats to mark the coming of autumn. It seems silly to complain about the year-round temperate climate that blesses the beachy shores of SoCal, but it gets pretty boring here…

Sad millennial simulator Night In The Woods gets new (and old) content

Depressed animal economic collapse adventure Night In The Woods exists in a strange place in my consciousness. While I absolutely love so much about it, from the characters to the art to the music and beyond, it's not particularly my sort of game - I'm more of a hands-on, solve problems kinda guy. I've also seen almost everything the game has to offer, thanks to…

Night In The Woods getting director’s cut in December

The wonderful Night In The Woods will receive "a whole bunch of new content" later this year with its 'Weird Autumn Edition' update, developers Infinite Fall have announced. Promising "new weird", "new crimes", and "old tales", they say to "think of it as the Night In The Woods director's cut." I've just about come to terms with the initial coming-of-age crisis so sure, I should…

Tunic trailer: an adorable fox meets lovely lighting

While Instagram is replete with unicorns and mermaids, videogames seem intent on sticking with cute foxes as their go-to adorable animals. Foxes have been having a "moment" for YEARS! All of which is my way of saying that Tunic [official site] is an adorable-looking adventure starring a fox which has a new trailer. I believe I first saw Tunic at GDC but it was during…

Night in the Woods delayedis out now!?!?!?

In a shocking turn of events, the colourful homecoming adventure Night in the Woods [official site] did not get delayed this week, causing it to become available on your PC mere hours ago. This is bad news for me. We've had our ‘Night in the Woods has been delayed again’ article ready to go for weeks, based on all the other times it’s been postponed,…

Night In The Woods gets definites-for-sure release date

I know you’re still upset that indie adventure Night In The Woods [official site] was delayed that one time. And then that other one time. And then that third one time. But the colourful homecoming tale is definitely, DEFINITELY coming out on February 21, the developers say. They made a tweet about it with a poster that has the date on it and everything.

Later, dude: Night in the Woods delayed into February

So sure, Night in the Woods [official site] is delayed once more but, y'know, stuff happens. At least this latest delay is only a few weeks. Besides, given the state everything will be in after New Year, I probably wouldn't have time for it on its original date of January 10th. The cute explore-o-adventure about a college dropout cat returning to her home town, where…

Night in the Woods trailer tooled up for January launch

The launch of Night in the Woods [official site] on may be an entire year away, on January 10th in 2017, but- oh god, that's really soon. Everything that seemed a year away is now almost tomorrow. I can't handle a feline dropout's problems now - I've barely started on this dropout's. But life, as I'm told it often will, keeps on rolling. So fine,…
