E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Void Bastards challenges loons to conquer space with a foon

According to some, who shall go unnamed, rogue-y FPS Void Bastards is too easy a game even if you crank its difficulty slider all the way up to the amusingly named 'Hard Bastard' mode. Developers Blue Manchu are obviously listening to them, because they've just added a new super-high-end challenge mode to the game. Unlocked by completing the game on Hard Bastard mode with the…

Cultist Simulator final DLC released, spin-off Book Of Hours announced

Enthralling and maddening in equal measure, card-juggling eldritch life sim Cultist Simulator is celebrating its first birthday today, and there's gifts for the devoted. Developer Weather Factory are rolling out the final two planned bits of DLC for the game today, each adding a new playable character, new ways to run your cult, and many more ways to lose. They've also announced Book Of Hours,…

Void Bastards warps in on May 29th

Void Bastards, the strategic roguelike-ish shooter from Blue Manchu now has a release date, broadcast to us through the uncaring depths of the internet: May 29th. Inspired by System Shock 2 and Bioshock (and from the design director on both), it's a darkly humoured stealthy FPS designed to force hard strategic decisions as you make your way across an FTL-esque star-map full of hazards. Resources…

Modder Superior: Trying on A Hat In Time mods for size

This week, we're breaking from delving through our back catalogues in favour of a recent game with a still-growing mod community. A Hat In Time is still one of the better 3D platformers on PC, only improved by two big chunks of DLC recently. Developers Gears For Breakfast have gone the extra mile on mod integration, with user-made worlds accessible from a special room in…

A Hat In Time goes online with cats in today’s Nyakuza Metro DLC

We all know that the internet was built to send cat pictures, which is exactly what A Hat In Time wants you to be doing in the Nyakuza Metro DLC, out today. While free for original Kickstarter backers, it's the Mario-like platformer's first fully paid DLC for the rest of us, but does a lot to justify that price tag. A large new free-roam city…

Forager scavenges up a roadmap for future updates

Cute-o-colourful idle-ish gather ‘em up Forager will continue to grow through the rest of the year. Developers HopFrog have crafted a roadmap for updates that “will focus on increasing gameplay length and adding replayability.” Everything from quality of life changes to mod support to multiplayer is scheduled for the upcoming months, so there'll be plenty of ways to continue hoovering up every last resource in…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PvP heads up the new Humble Monthly

From the few rounds I spent with it pre-release, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode - Blackout - was a lot of fun, speaking as someone not particularly into Battle Royales. Today, you can snag Treyarch's big-budget manshoot for $12 (roughly £9.12), along with the game's other PvP modes in the cut-down Battle Edition, heading up this month's Humble Monthly. While it…

Forager review

This is a public service announcement: if you find yourself on the western edge of the Llŷn Peninsula in Wales anytime soon on the hunt for blackberries, don’t bother - I’ve picked them all. Turns out there’s a twofold satisfaction to foraging that makes it difficult to stop. First there’s the search: looking high and low for collectibles, pushing your body further into the thicket,…

A Hat In Time adds cat crimes and fifty-player online in its next DLC

Good Mario-style 3D platformers aren't too common on PC, so I'm happy to see A Hat In Time still expanding. Announced today, the Nyakuza Metro DLC lands on May 10th, and adds two big new things to Gears For Breakfast's collectathon platformer. First is a whole new story zone, the titular Nyakuza Metro, a neon Tokyo-inspired railroad hub, infested with cat burglars and other felonious…

Forager escapes into stores to mine wallets today

After half an hour with Forager, I can already feel its compulsion loops getting their hooks into my brain. Developed by HopFrog and released today, it's a cute single-player game about a little pixel-person mining and crafting and looting in perpetuity, continually escalating spirals of numbers, equipment and levels. There's land to buy (full of resources), dungeons to delve (full of gold to buy land)…

Staxel is harvested from the fields of early access today

The bountiful crop of chill, lightweight farming games continues. Staxel has been in early access for over a year now, growing big and strong. Today, developers Plukit have dug it up, washed it off and delivered it to market. Bridging the gap between Stardew Valley and Minecraft, it has you planting crops, tending to animals and building a home in a chunky voxel world, solo…

Wizard Of Legend adds a windy gust of air-magic content in free DLC

Wizard Of Legend was a good game with a great core to it. Channelling the best bits of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it sold the fantasy of being a kung-fu wizard through exacting, frantic combat. My only real gripe with it in my review here was that there just wasn't enough of it. Today, developers Contingent99 addressed that, adding a bit more of everything to…

The Occupation review

The Occupation is a game easily described as ‘flawed but interesting’, which I do agree with, but then you wouldn’t appreciate it if a friend said the same thing about your homemade lasagne, would you? I didn’t technically finish playing The Occupation, because in the final cutscene I didn’t get the pivotal dialogue option. The characters, who I was supposed to be choosing sides between,…

The Occupation sneaks into stores in search of a scoop

The Occupation is out now, White Paper Games's investigative journo-thriller wrapped in the trappings of a sneaky immersive sim. Putting players in the shoes of an English journalist in 1987, a restrictive government bill that sounds remarkably like the American PATRIOT act is about to come into force. There's only a few hours left, and the clock is ticking in real-time, but snooping around the…

Humble Monthly offers Fighting, Sneaking and Viking for cheap

Another impressive month of deals in the Humble Monthly - I'm impressed at how consistently good Humble's subscribe-o-bundle has been this past year, and the next set headlines with a trio of gems. Northgard, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and Absolver cover a wide spread of genres, but all three games are united by one common thread; they all got free expansions recently. You…

The anatomy of a scoop in journo-thriller The Occupation

As a lifelong fan of immersive sims since before we had a name for the genre, I need to get my grubby mitts on The Occupation, an investigative thriller set in politically taut '80s London. With a clock ticking in real-time and a conspiracy to be untraveled before a quiet and painfully legal government crackdown, there's a lot to be done. With only days until…

Crying Suns warps in a faster, meaner demo on Steam

Crying Suns feels a bit like playing FTL in the universe from Lexx - weird, uncomfortable, unquestionably a bit evil and confusingly exciting. Space here is a mean place full of freaks and lunatics, and you're an expendable cloned captain sent to find out just how it got so bad. Developers Alt Shift released a demo to accompany the Kickstarter funding their rogue-ish game of…

The Humble Caffeine Bundle is full of games worth staying up late for

Today's Humble Caffeine Bundle is chock full of very good games for very little money, but a little hard to categorise. United under the banner of Caffeine - a "social broadcasting platform for gaming", not the life-giving stimulant - there's eight games here, each one representing a wildly different genre. We've got the Metroidy Headlander, platform roguelike Gonner, party game tank shooter Treadnauts, a historical…

New Humble Bundle offers Gang Beasts, Gnog, and… Everything

An eclectic mix of decent games including local multiplayer sillyfighter Gang Beasts, head-spinning puzzler Gnog, and everything simulator Everything are bagged up together in the latest Humble Bundle at a good price. The Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle is its name, gathering games Double Fine published rather than ones they've made themselves. They have an unusual eye like few other 'indie' publishing labels, though they…
