Shadowhand review

Fans of bodices and inheritance might remember card game Regency Solitaire. Pip and Adam enjoyed looking for tea sets underneath piles of cards in that tale of gambling and gossiping. But I’m in charge of the card games now. So I get to review highway robbery follow-up Shadowhand. If I were a member of the polite, ball-attending society of the game I might say it…

Shadowhand stands to deliver on December 7th

A long line of RPS writers (generations of em!) have been sharing their thoughts on Shadowhand, including an in-depth preview over the past couple years. It's been fascinating watching Grey Alien's game of card-based swashbucklery grow and evolve, and now the distinct and interestingly themed CCG has a release date. December 7th seems to have a bit of a 'powerful, dangerous women and the cards they deal'…

The real life of an indie game developer

I am fascinated by anything which let's me peek behind the curtain of indie game development, whether it's to see the effort that goes into making games or it's a look at the realities of being in business for yourself.

Shadowhand Shows Its Cards With First Trailer

Regency Solitaire took Castle Shotgun by surprise, and transformed it into a Victorian mansion for a while, all gossip and idle chat and falling in love with the cold and distant guy who secretly has deep passions but cannot show them because it's not cool. A few months ago, devs Grey Alien Games announced they were going to spice things up a bit and throw…

A Genteel Verdict: Regency Solitaire

While everyone else is off killing monsters and looking at bottoms in The Witcher 3, Pip and Adam have been killing time and looking at butlers in Regency Solitaire [official site]. It's a game of cards and cads, taking in romantic Regency hotspots such as the baths of Bath, the beaches of Brighton and the ballrooms of London. As well as discussing its finer qualities,…

Romance Is On The Cards: Regency Solitaire

I would like to play a game about romance and balls (this kind of ball) in Regency England. Ideally, it'd make for a pleasant holiday destination, away from the interstellar wars and fantasy fighting that make up my working life. If such a game took the form of a Solitaire-based puzzle game, I'd be as happy as the folks in "ever after". Imagine my delight…
