Space Sim Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles Hits GOG

I can’t say I’d even heard of Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles, but some folks seem awfully excited that the Russian space sim/FPS/RPG from 1997 is now on GOG – and in English for the first time. I am certainly interested in gems we missed here in the UK during the years we got our games in boxes from shops, when we rarely saw games from Russia and Eastern Europe. A game where you can do the usual merc-o-pirate sandbox space stuff, go on foot in FPS action, and build colonies… I’m interested!

Kenji Eno’s Horror Cult Classic D Makes Digital Debut

Dr. Richter Harris is a bastard. Not because he’s the mass murdering bad father of survival horror classic D [wikipedia page], but because he truly scared the life out of me when I was 11 years old. Released originally for the 3DO in 1995, D made its way onto European and North American consoles (and MS-DOS) in 1996. I played it the following year and, having missed the original Resident Evil the first time round, D was my first proper taste of the horror genre – one that’s stayed with me ever since.

Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire Returns

Sorry Dash Rendar, but you and your silly shoulderpads probably aren’t canon anymore. You do get one more day in the sun, though, as Shadows of the Empire, one of the few remaining Star Wars games to not yet be re-released digitally, is now out on GoG. For the longest time, SOTE had the greatest Hoth level ever made. Maybe it still does?

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Swoops To GOG

Hey I have to write this post first but after that, I swear.

RPS will not – cannot, even – stop going on about Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Look! Kieron tried to be less of a dick, Jim wished for more games like its “action-soap opera”, we interviewed writer Brian Mitsoda, and Cara got all S.EXEtwice. And it’s one of the best RPGs, the best horror games, the best RPG worlds… we like it, okay. So sure, I’ll mention that Troika’s 2004 RPG is now sold on GOG too, with some vital community-made fixes included and all.
