Mod Yays! Don’t Starve & Gateways On Steam Workshop

The Steam Workshop is an interesting barometer of a game's post-release success. Strike Suit Zero's Steam Workshop has been live for a few months, but it only has eight lonely items populating its server space, and pointing it out is making me feel quite awkward. Erm, moving on. Don't Starve's new Workshop is a lot healthier. The cutest survival game you ever did see recently…

Gateways Editor Is Now Open

John's shameless kissy-face act towards Gateways has finally ceased, because he is a married man, and because the United Britons of Parliament rejected his plea to allow civil unions between people and games. His winkie tattoo did not convince them of the merit of his argument. He's also on holiday and without internet, so I can post this without risk of his passions being inflamed…

Thrown Open Wide: Gateways Released On Steam & Desura

Just a quick note to say that one of my favourite games of this year, Gateways, is now out on Steam and Desura. You can see the trailer here, and find out why I keep banging on about it here. It's £3.19 on Steam, but only £2.39 on Desura. By my maths, that makes the Desura version... (divided by 2)... (carry the 7)... (reverse the…

3/5ths Of RPS, Quasi-Live On Stage

Rezzed had many highlights, and it's faintly possible that insane people believe watching me try to construct a little man out of chewing gum and my own spittle was one of them. This was just one of the many strange and possibly dangerous tasks in the live trial by that was the 5th International Indie Mudwrestling Championships, an on-stage panel show hosted with golden-voiced aplomb…

Open For Business: Gateways Out Now

If I've played just enough of the ingenious Gateways to know one thing; if I play much more my brain will end being the shape of a pretzel. It's the game that John raved about while describing time travel conundrums so defiantly opposed to the natural flow of reality that even reading about them made me feel less like a professor of puzzles and more…

Portalmanteau: Why You Should Play The Gateways Beta

I can't remember the last time I played a game challenging enough that it had me stop, sit back in my chair, and just think for a bit. That's the rare pleasure the beta version of Gateways offers, as the fantastic puzzles start piling up. How can I, using my various tools such as changing size, portaling, and going back in time, reflect that laser…

Peek Into The Gateways Demo

Previously on Gateways coverage: "I'm going to call it Super Metrortal Braidlevania and I hope you’ll join me in doing the same." That was Adam, talking about what he thought the complex shenanigans of Gateway's mad scientist would end up like. From that list you can tell it's a side-scrolling 2D platformer. It's heavily influenced by Portal, with the professor holding a complicated version of…
