Splash cash: Shadow Warrior studio Flying Wild Hog bought up

After years of growing beards and wearing plaid shirts as an independent studio, Hard Reset developers and Shadow Warrior rebooters Flying Wild Hog have got a shave, started wearing ties, and sided with The Suits. The Polish studio have been bought by Supernova Capital, an investment firm founded by a number of Splash Damage veterans including former CEO Paul Wedgwood. They all say this is…

Shadow Warrior 2 is free on GOG right now

The rude, crude Shadow Warrior 2 is free to grab on GOG for the next two days. Flying Wild Hog's shooter is a big messy slab of old-school FPS'ing infused with painful jokes (which frequently made me giggle), some Borderlands-ish stat juggling, procedural encounter generation and lots of monsters and cyborgs to mulch. Adam Smith gushed profusely in his review, calling it "anarchic, excessive, ridiculous, occasionally spectacular…

Shadow Warrior free as SW2 gets new free bits

Hey gang, if you missed Shadow Warrior the last time it was free, another chance is here for a few more hours. This is the 2013 reboot of the demon-stabbing FPS, to be clear, not 3D Realm's original (which is always free). You've got until 6pm today (10am Pacific) to grab this free so chop chop. The giveaway celebrates the launch of new missions and…

Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] is hardly story-heavy but if you simply want to launch yourself into a horde of monsters with your swords swinging, a new update has your back. Developers Flying Wild Hog last night boshed in trials offering a series of rewards as you murder the heck out a load of demons. Why delay? Murder today!

Shadow Warrior 2 Getting Free New Challenge Mode

Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] is "anarchic, excessive, ridiculous, occasionally spectacular and almost entirely wonderful", our Adam will tell you. Now, I'm not saying you should do and believe everything Adam might tell you - please don't worship him as a minor ale deity, not again - but he's not wrong there. Now that it's out, developers Flying Wild Hog and publishers Devolver Digital are…

Feature: More weapons than you can shake a wang at

Shadow Warrior 2 review

Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] could have gone horribly wrong. The 2013 reboot succeeded because it took the principles of a nineties FPS and dragged them kicking and bleeding into the twenty-first century, adding superb melee combat controls, a well thought-out upgrade system, but sticking with linear levels packed with easter eggs and secrets. It was the best of the old and the best of…

Shadow Warrior 2 Revs Chainsword In Gameplay Trailer

Given that Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] has a squillion weapons, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised to learn that the supernatural FPS has a Warhammer 40K-style chainsword. It looks pretty great! There's a terrible moment each time Lo Wang strikes an enemy, a drawn-out dragging as the chainsword's teeth bite into flesh. I wonder how much time went into perfecting that. Anyway! I'll surely…

Shadow Warrior 2 Slices And Dices Onto PC In October

Shoot and slice 'em up Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] is set to launch October 13. It's a bloody, over-the-top ninja adventure that doesn't take itself too seriously. There's a guy taking a selfie as he decapitates a monster, so there's stuff in there us millennials can relate to, too. It's also shaping up to be quite beautiful if you look past all of the…

Feature: Rip and tear forever

Hands On: Shadow Warrior 2 Is Like First-Person Diablo

Demons, in Shadow Warrior 2 [official site], appear to be made of jelly. I’m carving one particularly big bastard open like a Christmas turkey and the segments that slide away are like the gelatinous gloop and gristle sliding from a tin of cheap dogfood. They wibble and wobble, quivering beneath the teeth of my chainsaw. They fold and flop, eventually disintegrating. The ultraviolence is more…

Hard Reset Redux Gameplay Vid Heralds June Launch

Before reviving 3DR Realms's Shadow Warrior, developers Flying Wild Hog made their very own '90s-style FPS, Hard Reset. As well as working on Shadow Warrior 2, Flying Wild Hog have been polishing up Hard Reset for a new release as Hard Reset Redux [official site], and now it has a release date of June 3rd. This announcement also brings a 16-minute gameplay trailer, and shows…

Feature: Wang is the loneliest number

Have You Played… Shadow Warrior?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. But which Shadow Warrior do I mean? Despite my love of the magnificent Build Engine, not the 1997 original which never worked its way into my heart in the way that Blood did. Gotta have some Blood in your heart. But, no, I'm…

First Person Squabbler: 12 Minutes Of Shadow Warrior 2

The Shadow Warrior reboot was one of the most pleasant surprises I've had since I started writing about games. It's a superb action game that does first-person melee combat well, has gorgeous environments, and managed not to feel like a throwback to the skeevier parts of the Build Engine days while capturing so much that I loved about the era. I can't wait for the…

Hard Reset Redux Revamping Throwback FPS

Shadow Warrior 2 looks pretty dang swish, doesn't it? I've been pretty surprised by, and pleased with, how nicely Polish studio Flying Wild Hog's revive-o-rebooting of 3D Realms' vintage FPS has gone well. Now they're also returning to their own older work. Hard Reset Redux is coming, a revamp of the throwback FPS they released in 2011. It doesn't sound massively different, with fancied-up graphics…

Shadow Warrior 2 Slices ‘N’ Dices In 13 Mins Of Gameplay

Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] looks full of places I'd like to swim, and I can't think of a higher compliment to pay a game's environment artists. Shadow Warrior 2 also looks full of some of the nicest-looking first-person shooting I've seen out of E3. A new 13-minute gameplay trailer shows off the demo build they took to E3, with Lo Wang and a co-op…

Shadow Warrior 2 Announced Packing Four-Player Co-op

Four-player co-op and missions into procedurally-generated lands are the two biggest shiny new things Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] will bring, publishers Devolver Digital announced this afternoon following a teasingly short teaser campaign. Lo Wang will return in 2016 as a mercenary murdering folks and swiping loot while trying not to be murdered by demons. This time he'll have friends to help with that. Also…

Judgement Wang. Shadow Warrior VII: The Wang Awakens. Shadow Warrior: The Wang of Ultron. Wang World. Evidence points toward an official Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] announcement in the near future (and, hey,…

Rise Of The Rayman: JUJU

One minute you're making Commander Keen and the next you're Knee Deep In The Dead. id Software might be known for their violent first-person shooters but there was a time when their core franchise was all about a young lad called Billy Blaze fighting daft aliens, bouncing around on a pogo stick, and collecting chocolate bars and bottles of pop. Flying Wild Hog, creators of…

If Life Gives You Oranges: Platformer Juju Gets Trailer

Secret hobby: peppering the frontpage of RPS with header images that look as disparate as possible. And so, from the grim meathook future of Brigador's robot deathscapes, to Juju, a side-scrolling co-op platformer that intersperses quotes from happy children among its playful, music-infused, Rayman Oranges-riffing world. I even get bonus points here for an even greater symbol of videogame variety: Juju is being made by…
