Humble’s Day of the Devs 2017 is live now with some point & click classics

Humble Day of the Devs 2017

Day of the Devs, for those not in the know, is an event in San Francisco that lets fans meet and talk shop with a bunch of game developers in what usually becomes one big celebration of various nerdoms. This year’s event is taking place on Saturday, 11th November and Humble is celebrating the occasion with a big ol’ Day of the Devs 2017 themed bundle which offers up to $131 worth of games for $9.

In this bundle, you’ll find a handful of point and click classics in their remastered forms, along with some absolute gems of newer indie titles. If you happen to spend $9 (around £6.83) or more, you’ll even get a VIP ticket to the Day of the Devs event itself, if you can make it there. As an added bonus, Humble Monthly subscribers will also get $2 thrown into their Humble wallet to spend at a later date.

Vroom! Full Throttle Remastered roars out today

Today I’m wearing my leather jacket and trying to convince Cara to bop me with a plank then toss me into a bin, celebrating the launch of Full Throttle Remastered [official site]. Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions have updated and re-released LucasArts’ 1995 stonking adventure game, which Tim Tam led development on back in his LucasArts days. Parts of Full Throttle always niggled and annoyed but it rose well above them, and I’m hopeful that still holds true. I can’t think of any game in the past 22 years which has surpassed Full Throttle’s opening, for starters. Read the rest of this entry »

The PC games of 2017 mega-preview

As Old Father Time grabs his sickle and prepares to take ailing 2016 around the back of the barn for a big sleep, we’re looking to the future. The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.

A first peek at Full Throttle Remastered, a bit late

Reader dearest, I fall upon my sword before you. I hurl myself upon it. I take a running start and leap upon my sword. Through the teeth and past the gums, look out guts here it comes and I’m split from the skull down, intestines and shame and regret and apologies spill steaming upon the ground, dissolving into putrid black mucus the cold earth swallows to fester and feed the blooms of so many future mistakes.

Dearest reader o reader dear, while I was off tromping around lochs on my hols earlier this month, Double Fine shared a trailer peeking at Full Throttle Remastered [official site] and it’s taken me this long to notice. THE SHAME. Read the rest of this entry »

Full Throttle Remastered Announced For 2017

Gosh-o! I guess Double Fine are remaking every adventure game Tim Schafer worked on at LucasArts that they can get their hands on! Over the weekend they announced a ‘Remastered’ version of fantastic futurebiker adventure Full Throttle. It’s fantastic, and it’s been off store shelves for far too long. We’ll have a while to wait yet, though: it’s not due until 2017.
