Cute platformer The Forestale is secretly… Doom, kinda?

Taken at face value The Forestale by solo indie dev Yorzh Aleksey isn't a particularly noteworthy game. A fairly standard 2.5D platformer, currently slated for release on Steam. It seems decent enough in a early 2000's kinda way, but the game itself isn't the interesting bit. No, what makes The Forestale fascinating is that it's a full indie platformer developed entirely in the GZDoom engine. Yes, that…

The Adventures of Square is a must-play free retro FPS

The moon is made of cheese, and The Adventures of Square is at least 80% terrible geometry puns by weight, so an ideal candidate for RPS coverage. Built on the open-source GZDoom engine by BigBrik, a team of the best and brightest in the Doom modding scene, this free FPS borrows inspiration from old-school shooters far and wide but also feels like the missing link between…

Shadow & Rise Of The Wool Ball turn Wolfenstein cute

Well done, everyone. Between the festival of catharsis that was Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus and Call Of Duty's return to World War 2, we've officially put shooting virtual fascists back on the menu. Jolly good show. Still hungry to grind some more into kibble? Here's a couple of free treats to keep you going until Wolfenstein 3. Granted, the goose-stepping villains in Doom mod Shadow of The Wool…

Skulldash brings high-pressure arcade thrills to Doom

This is Doom. You know this. The rhythms have been burnt into your DNA by this point: Gun, demons, maze, exit. Now add a ticking time limit forcing careful target prioritisation and precise movement and a level full of floating tokens which require collection (most of them, at least) before the exit will reveal itself. This is Skulldash: Expanded Edition, a massive mod re-released for the GZDoom engine…

Blade Of Agony Is An Incredible ‘WolfenDoom’ Mod

Do you remember a time when Wolfenstein hero B.J. Blazkowicz was a grinning, bum-chinned sprite with shiny blue twinklers rather than a morose sad-eyed man in a broken world? I've enjoyed several versions of Wolfenstein over the years, and perhaps none more so than The New Order, but I'm still fond of the first 3d title in the series. And I fucking love Doom. What…

Gloome: A Standalone, Commercial-Friendly GZDoom

id Software may have released Doom's source code years ago (the old one, not that new one obvs), but it's not quite as free as you might expect. With some of the most popular modern versions of Doom using bits of licensed code and reliant on Doom data files, folks have been uncertain whether they'd be able to release proper standalone games - which still…

Avast, Me Hell Knights: Pirate Doom Adds More Peg Legs

I like to think myself a discerning games player. I explore the far reaches of video games in search of fascinating systems, profound experiences, and deep truths. Also, I cannot stop beaming at Doom II imps dressed up as pirates whose hats drift lazily down to the ground after you blow them away with a flintlock. That's Pirate Doom, a mod giving everything a piratical…
