Sub-aquatic adventure Diluvion: Resubmerged looks seaworthy after a major overhaul

Despite its exciting premise of Jules Verne-inspired nautical adventuring, sea monsters and mechanical leviathans, Diluvion sank out of sonar range shortly after launching early last year - yesterday, it resurfaced under an expanded name. While a striking looking game, it got depth-charged by negative reviews, with complaints about wonky UI and some underdeveloped systems. Developers Arachnid Games have been patching holes ever since. Boasting major improvements,…

Phantom Doctrine trailer exposes the big conspiracy of how it works

After cutting their teeth on turn-based tactical action with 2015's demonic cowboy 'em up Hard West, CreativeForge Games will fight through Cold War conspiracies in Phantom Doctrine, as a new trailer lays out. We've explained Phantom Doctrine in previews but, if a picture is worth a thousand words (and I've no reason to doubt the idiom), these three minutes of 60fps video are worth almost…

Phantom Doctrine E3 vid shows tactical espionage action

One of those there 'E3 trailers' introduces the XCOM-ish tactical action and Cold War setting of Phantom Doctrine, the espionage 'em up which pleased our dearly-departed Adam (RPS In Peace) when he played a preview version last year. Take turn-based tactical infiltration, wrap it in a big conspiracy unravelled with the help of that ol' trusty corkboard covered cards, pins, and string, and developers CreativeForge…

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine adds new stories and autowalk

Story-collecting stroll 'em up Where The Water Tastes Like Wine has added more strange, delightful, and terrible tales to hear in a free update. Our dearly-departed Adam praised the original game's Americana stories, written by a wide team of writers, in his Where The Water Tastes Like Wine review and more are certainly welcome. The dead man wasn't so keen on the game around the…

Creature-feature mansion sim MachiaVillain is out soon

Considering how universal the allure of being an evil overlord is, it's surprising that so few games have properly explored the concept. Wild Factor's murder-mansion management sim MachiaVillain might not tempt you with the possibility of world domination, but perhaps being evil middle management is a safer career path anyway. Better than being a henchman, at least. The game just got itself a shiny new trailer…

Semblance, a puzzle platformer about bending the rules

We've all done it. You miss a jump by what feels like millimeters (you were probably miles off, admit it), and your first thought is 'If only that platform were just a little bit higher'. If you could, at that moment, you'd reach out and bend the rules, just a teensy bit. Make it that little bit closer, or your jump just a little higher.…

Feature: A ramblin' game

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine review

In Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, stories are currency. You walk the backroads and fields of the United States during the Great Depression, occasionally freighthopping or hitching a ride from one town to the next. Along the way, you meet many people and witness many events, most of them insignificant in the grand scheme of history and the land, but all contributing to a…

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine flows out February 28

There are two things you should know about Where The Water Tastes Like Wine, the interactive fiction-ish anthology from Dim Bulb and Serenity Forge. One is that yer actual Sting is in it, supplying his dulcet tones to a hungry-looking wolfman who will narrate parts of the Americana odyssey. The second is that half of games journalism has written for it, including RPS escapees Cara…

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine buzzes in Sting

The English actor Sting, famous for donning a cracking pair of pants as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in David Lynch's Dune as well as for his side-career in music, will lend his voice to a humanoid wolf in Where The Water Tastes Like Wine. That furry fella is one of the storytellers in the country-roaming Americana anthology, which is led by Gone Home co-creator Johnnemann Nordhagen at…

Feature: Make your own Manchurian Candidate

XCOM-like tactical espionage thriller Phantom Doctrine was my Gamescom highlight

At first glance, Phantom Doctrine [Steam page] looks an awful lot like a Cold War flavoured XCOM. That's quite an exciting prospect and the closer I looked, the more exciting it became. There are agents instead of aliens, and some novel infiltration and reconnaissance systems, but everything from the UI to the cover system is immediately familiar. The tactical missions are hiding unexpected twists though,…
