InnerSpace now flying through the guts of demigods

Until someone tells me otherwise, I shall assume that new exploratory flying game InnerSpace is set inside guts. InnerSpace may not be based on the 1987 Martin Short movie Innerspace, at least not officially, but when I see that little ship zipping through landscapes resembling vertebrae and celia-fringed tunnels I think: guts. Not that I object to guts, mind. Whatever it is, the game launched…

Sniper Elite 4 Vid Bursts Heart Shoulders Knees & Guts

Heart shoulders knees and guts (Knees and guts) Heart shoulders knees and guts And jaw and brain and liver and nose Heart shoulders knees and guts (Knees and guts) That's a handy song to help you remember which bodybits get shot, stabbed, punched, kneed, ruptured, shattered, and exploded in slow-motion internal views in the first 'gameplay' trailer for Sniper Elite 4 [official site].

Lick The Biomechanical Gristle Of FPS-Adventure Scorn

Several games have waved H.R. Giger's subliminal dicks and fannies in our faces, mostly through Alien connections, but in recent years I've seen few go for it quite as much as Scorn [official site]. It's an upcoming mix of first-person shooter and adventure game, with all the biomechanical ribbing, pumping, throbbing, squicking, and glistening of Giger with touches of Zdzisław Beksiński and David Cronenberg. I've…

Not Of This World: Devil Daggers Launching This Month

"Ah, man, I don't know how to start this Devil Daggers post," I grumbled in the RPS treehouse earlier. "I am excited about this game in a way I'm not usually. I often get excited by 'oh yeah, this game does that thing I like in a good way' but this is... it's in my guts, man." Solution: quote that watercooler muttering and roll from…

Killing Floor 2 Update Blasts Into Paris Catacombs

Two hundred miles of damp tunnels filled with skulls, bones, and secret cinemas sounds like a place you'd find me gaily rolling around clutching a bottle-sized glass of wine. And yet, whenever I've been in Paris, I've not visited its Catacombs. I know why: Deus Ex - its virtual Catacombs are such a chore that they've put me off the real deal. Maybe Killing Floor…

Killing Floor 2 Demonstrates PhysX Flex Tech Using Guts

Demos for new physics technologies usually look like Bodyform commercials, with gentle blue water sloshing around and lots of smooth rippling fabric. That's how Nvidia have shown their new unified particle-based physics tech PhysX Flex so far - lots of rubbery water balloons flopping about and leaking blue wet. Pssh, it won't look like that in the games we actually play. Killing Floor 2 [official…

Papercraft Adventuring: Papetura Demo

Papetura [official site] is one of the prettiest handcrafted games I've played. It's an adventure game, as these things often are, starring a paper curl of a chap and his little... cat? on strange travels through a magical paper world with the most beautiful spotlighting making everything glow. A short (short!) demo is up for download on its site or playable in your browser, starting…

Sunday Science: Exploring Guts In Extract 237

Always tricky, the last few hours of the weekend. Do we try to cram just a little more action, adventure, and excitement? Do we iron Monday's clothes? Do we settle down with a book and hot cocoa? Do we settle down with a book and a bottle of wine? You know me, dear, I always like to be reminded of how large and wonderful the…

First-Person Pooper: Swallowed Alive In NS2 Combat

I do enjoy visiting horrible guts. I've leapt between the grinding teeth of The Many in System Shock 2, chainsawed a city-devouring worm's heart(s) in Gears of War 2, and admired a meatwizard's DIY skills in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Now I'm keen to play Natural Selection 2: Combat, as developers Faultline Games have showed off its horrors of being devoured alive. Being swallowed…

Big Men Announce Guts, Playable Alpha

"Big Men Announce Guts" was not a headline I'd anticipated writing today, but there it is. Big Men Games have announced via Blues that they are working on a turn-based action-strategy called Guts. It's at a super-early stage, but there's already a playable alpha (requires Unity plugin) and it's looking pretty promising. They're calling it "a smashup between Tactics and Rogue-likes". As you can see…
