QT is PT but cute, see, and it’s free

First-person spooker PT, the legendary 'playable teaser' which announced Silent Hills, has inspired hordes of copies, remakes, and rip-offs in the years since Konami cancelled Silent Hills and tried to sweep both under the rug. None have surprised or delighted me nearly as much as QT, a free first-person peeteer released over the weekend by the fella behind Morning Post and Library. As if the…

With reason: Rime free on the Epic Games Store now

The latest game Epic are giving away free on their digishop is Rime, 2017's nonviolent explore-o-puzzle-a-platformer made by Tequila Works. Y'know, the one that people may have tried to explain to you with comparisons to Ico or Journey, a great deal of handwaving, and the words like "kinda" and "sorta". I still haven't bought a game on Epic's store but I sure am nabbing all…

Priceless Play – 18 May

To this day, one of the most powerful things I've experienced is printing my own zine. Opening the box shipped to my door and seeing the neatly stacked little booklets with my handwriting inside is the sort of pride I imagine is reserved for published authors or narcissists. "Zine," for those not in the know, is short for "magazine," and it's honestly a lifestyle. Typically…

It's a busy day over on the Epic Games Store. On top of the expected fortnightly giveaway - this time the excellent horror-adventure Stories Untold - they've launched their first big sale.

Traffix is a simple game that puts you in charge of the traffic lights

Traffix sounds like the name of a breakfast cereal made from five whole grains that’s full of fibre for the whole family. But no, listen. It’s a small and simple game about controlling the flow of traffic by clicking on wee lights. You basically have to keep the cars moving and avoid jams or pile-ups, but it’s all done with a minimalistic Mini Metro vibe.…

Minecraft Classic is a free browser-based piece of history

As part of Minecraft's tenth anniversary celebrations, Mojang have dusted off an early 2009 iteration, packaged it up into free, browser-friendly format and called it Minecraft Classic. This nearly-decade-old build is an interesting museum piece, not quite a game yet, but it was still unmistakably Minecraft at this point. Players are free to generate and explore procedurally generated worlds and build with a palette of…
