Feature: Physics bugs, AI bugs, and more

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord players have made Harry Potter, Gandalf and lots of glitchy gifs

It's inevitable at this point. Where there are games, there are antics, and a game as big and complicated, and as work-in-progress as Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord, there will be slapstick. There will be creativity. There will be gifs. The game's various subreddits have been buzzing constantly for over two weeks. Let's have a look at some of the highlights.

Artist Taro Oono turns gifs into delightful Twitter microgames

Japanese animator and illustrator Taro Oono (official site) may also be one of the most prolific game developers you've never heard of. But despite launching dozens of tiny interactive vignettes convened with domestic life, family antics and gorillas, you won't find his catalogue on Steam, Epic or even indie-centric Itch.io. For a little under a year, Oono has been posting his collection of short, hand-drawn…

Feature: Burn it all down

Noita is very good even if you are very bad at it

Noita is a big firework show, where the fireworks are heaps of gunpowder, exploding barrels of acid. The acid turns into steam in the heat of the blast and rises to condense on the cold cave roof, eventually falling back down as acid rain. Argh. This is a very dangerous firework show. In this roguelike spellslinger where you play as a flying witch, every pixel…

Feature: For dishonor

A collection of dishonourable acts in For Honor

The murderfields of For Honor [official site] are busy - despite the god-awful networking – and it has become a place where all sorts of foul multiplayer deeds occur. It’s obvious now that Ubisoft called the game For Honor as a joke, because I have seen (and done) all kinds of dishonourable acts. Here, in handy visual form (warning: many GIFS!) are just some of…

Gaming Gifs That Make Me Grin

It was time for a dive back into the TIG forum thread featuring gifs of games being worked on. Some are from games, some are feature ideas or tests or character animations. I like dipping in and seeing these tiny snapshots, either to take me to new games or simply to be lovely things in their own right.Here are my current favourites:

Physics Pet Game Features “Horrific Dogmorphs”

I love dogs. I love their pointy black noses. I love their round faces and round eyes. I love their pink and rectangular bodies. I love the wobbly way they pump their spindle legs when being sucked through a vacuum tunnel. I love dogs, and it seems as if this as-yet-unnamed dog physics project is going to depict everything I love about them if its…

Feature: GIF all day

The Gifs That Keep On Giffing

Every now and again I go to browse the 'Gifs of games being worked on' thread in the TIGSource forums (The Independent Gaming Source community forum). I probably shouldn't admit this but I'm not really there to scout out games. Sure, something cool might stand out and I'll investigate further but the real pleasure is the pretty or interesting or characterful gifs. Perhaps I'll find…

DevLog Watch: Thief Story & Irkalla

Mondays are a great day for giving a little love to new, in-development indie projects. There's fast becoming no better place to find those projects than TIGSource's DevLog forum, where developers regularly post screenshots, GIFs and audio samples from their upcoming projects. By my eye, the games most in demand of some attention currently are Thief Story, a cutesy, Nintendo-ish, top-down game about stealing stuff,…

Give The GIF Of Terror: The Animating Of Ethan Carter

The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter is what the main folk behind Bullestorm did next, and the combination of spooky forests and some bloke's name makes it impossible not to claim it sounds like Alan Wake. However, it sounds like it's branching off down the Dear Esther/Gone Home path rather than the shootybang one, which for my money often results in more atmosphere than a storm…

The RPS 17,777th Party Post: Curtain Simulator 2013

If you think about it, curtains are responsible for our sanity. Without them we wouldn't be able to be ourselves. Imagine spending all your time putting on a front, putting on trousers. No, curtains are pretty much necessary to keep the world a sane, less testicley place. Which means it's about time they entered popular culture via a game. Curtain Simulator 2013 is that game.…
