Cutesy Halloween adventure Costume Quest 2 is free on Epic

Spook-o-ween is almost upon us, dear readers. And while there's not a single fun-sized Snickers in sight, trotting up to old Mr Epic Games Store's front door this week has treated to two new freebies - Double Fine's charming Costume Quest 2 and the decisively less whimsical Layers Of Fear 2. Same as before, they're yours to keep until this time next week, when they'll…

Punch-up Yakuza demake Streets Of Kamurocho is out today

Between karaoke, crime drama and shareholder meetings, it's safe to say Yakuza is about so much more than just fighting. But you do punch a lotta blokes in those games. If you wanted to punch a whole lot more, Streets Of Kamurocho reimagines the Sega series as a side-scrolling brawler. Just be quick - the free demake is only available 'til Monday.

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is free on Epic right now

Tis the season to be spooky, so you might fancy grabbing a free copy of Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs from Epic to keep you quivering until Amnesia: Rebirth launches next week. Piggy-wigs was quite different for an Amnesia follow-up, having been made by Everybody's Gone To The Rapture developers Thechineseroom rather than series creators Frictional Games, but it does have some jolly unpleasant parts.…

The best Sonic game is free to keep in Sega’s big birthday sale

Listen. With Sega basically becoming an RTS publishing giant, Sonic The Hedgehog is retroactively a PC gaming mascot. Sorry, them's the rules. To help you get on board with our sassy, spikey new overlord, 1992's Sonic The Hedgehog 2 - the best one - is free to keep forever on Steam if you pick it up before October 19th.

I simply do not know where to put all of these cats

It's been of my understanding that getting cats under control is an impossible task. And yet, I thought I'd managed it with the help of Cats Organized Neatly. The delightful free demo had me thinking myself a master cat-wrangler right up until this massive dozing kitty slumbered its way into my life. With a free demo for the adorable pet puzzler out now, I am…

Abzû’s delightful ocean is free on the Epic Games Store

Come on in, readers. The water's free. Giant Squid's chill dive 'em up Abzû is once again opening its waters for free on the Epic Games Store. Someone must've thought it pairs well with the horrors of war, mind, because it's joined this week by Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. Both will be free to download and keep for the next week, at which point they'll…

Everything Is Garbage, so why not turn trash into cows?

Yes, Everything Is Garbage. But garbage can be used to make turnips. Turnips can be sold or fed to cows or sheep, whose sweaters can feed the people who were born from trees and books and yet more turnips. So goes this delightfully simple supply chain builder from the folks behind Genital Jousting, a game where a continent of trash can become an obelisk to…

Finally, a (digital) art gallery for gamers

Gamers - they aren't just basement dwellers any more. Shocking, I know, but such is the premise of a bizarre 3D browser gallery opened by Activision Blizzard earlier this week. A free, tiny shrine to corporate art, the publishing giant's demographic-driven collection of prints have "levelled up" historical forms to create one of the strangest browser spaces I've ever attended. Yes, even stranger than that…

The lovely Pikuniku is free on the Epic Games Store at the mo

This may be the month of ghosts and ghoulies, but we should still make time for gags and good times. To that end, do grab this week's Epic Games Store freebie if so inclined, it's Pikuniku. Released last year, it's a lovely platforming explore-o-puzzler starring a wee blob with little kicking legs. Frankly, just watching those sticky feet is enough to cheer me up. And…

Remedy celebrate turning 25 by making their bloody debut free

Quick, I say Remedy, you say... well? If you said Death Rally and not Max Payne or Control, you're either a massive clever-clogs or you looked at the header of this story. To commemorate the studio's 25th birthday, the developers are making their very first game free to keep forever. Great news, if you're into bloody car combat racers from the grindhouse depths of 1996.

The Garden Of Earthly Delights turns Age Of Empires into an animal chatroom

Towns burn, troops gather, armies are on the move. But who'll consider the wildlife left behind when civilizations go to war? Following their work on mixed-reality deathmatch futures, SCRNPRNT's The Garden Of Earthly Delights is a free online chatroom for the animals of Age Of Empires 2, letting them hang out amidst the fires of a low-res warzone.

Vlambeer’s parting gift is unfinished tower defence FFFLOOD

Vlambeer are dead. Almost, at least. The Dutch indie duo may have gone their separate ways, but they'll stick it out to release one last game, frenetic puzzle-shmup Ultrabugs. But it's their second-to-last game that may be most interesting, however, with an unfinished build of roguelite tower-defense FFFLOOD finding its way onto Itch earlier this week.

Once more, Into The Breach is free on the Epic Games Store

Thursday's rolled in once again, which means it's time for another giveaway on the Epic Games Store. This week, turn-based stomper Into The Breach is dropping in for free. It's had its moment in the spotlight before - as one of the platform's 12 free days of December 2019 - but those time-traveling mech rascals are trying their luck with another timeline, delivering some stellar…

Two different illicit gig economy experiences are yours for free this week on the Epic Games Store, which is currently giving away 2016's stealth assassination game Hitman and a collection of the Shadowrun cyberpunk fantasy RPGs. Sure, basically you're being paid to kill and rob people in both, but you'll go about it in different ways.

D&D Map Sketcher is a dungeon designer with Ikea sensibilities

If evil lairs came in flat-packed boxes, they'd probably look a lot like this. D&D Map Sketcher might not give its dungeons quirky Swedish nicknames, but Daniel Fernández Marqués' do-it-yourself dungeons have already won me over - offering a delightful free browser toy with ambitions to have a place in every TTRPG group's toolbox.

Podcast episode 106: the Rezzed Tabletop RPG special

This week we have an extra special treat for you! It does mean we don't talk about PC games at all, though. Well, we do, but we talk about fake ones that we've made up. Today we're joined by special guests Meg from EGX and ReedPop video producer Dean (of Dicebreaker's Dungeonbreaker fame to for an actual play of our new free tabletop RPG, EGX…

Feature: The optional final boss is Geoff Keighley

We miss Rezzed so much that we turned it into a free tabletop RPG

Ah, EGX Rezzed. The Shed Of Dreams, they call it. We here at RPS truly love doing that show and having lots of silly fun every year, including an Olympics and our live podcast and playing all the lovely weird indie games. This year, unfortunately, Rezzed couldn't happen because of all the everything (here I gesture at the world, futilely), and while we did do…

A Total War Saga: Troy is out now, and you can get it for free

War totally continues today with the launch of A Total War Saga: Troy, the latest strategic rumble from Creative Assembly. The Saga subseries focuses on particular regions, in this case the Bronze Age dust-up round the city of Troy as told in The Iliad (I think it's an episode of The Simpsons?). Troy is initially an Epic exclusive but: this deal means the game is…
