Yakuza Kiwami headlines Humble’s Monthly bundle for December

Humble's Monthly games bundle will be morphing into the more expensive Humble Choice at some point before the end of the year, but until that happens it's business as usual for the monthly subscription service. In what's quite possibly going to be the last Monthly bundle as we currently know it, the early unlock games for December have now been announced as Yakuza Kiwami, My…

CoD, Crash and Spyro are November’s Humble Monthly early unlocks

Just when you thought your trusted deals herald was done for the day, here she is with another one fresh off the deals presses. It's arguably the best deal of the day, though, as Humble have just announced the early unlocks for their next Humble Monthly bundle: Call of Duty: WWII, the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy. That's seven games, all for…

RPS Verdict: Wilmot’s Warehouse

Alice Bee: Hello Brendy and Nate! We're here to discuss what we ultimately think of Wilmot's Warehouse, our Can't Stop Playing for the month of September. Next week we will choose a brand new game, so as a final tribute we are here to deliver an RPS Verdict for the sweet organise-a-warehouse 'em up that is Wilmot. We'd been planning to do this verdict chat…

Clowns, dog food and Christmas Miracles: the secret history of Wilmot’s Warehouse

You might not be surprised to learn that Wilmot’s Warehouse, the charming object-categorisation game we’ve been banging on about this month, was inspired by (wait for it) working in a warehouse. Co-creator Richard Hogg worked in warehouses for Asda and Boots in his teens, before moving on to work for a film stills library after graduating. “I loved that job,” he recalls, wistfully. “In fact,…

Podcast: Why we can’t stop playing Wilmot’s Warehouse

 You are handed a box. Inside, another hour of ceaseless chatter from three folks on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. Oh no, where re you supposed to put this? Maybe it should go next to the knives in the "dangerous items" pile. Or you could store it beside the tennis rackets in "hobby equipment". Oh hell, let's just make a whole new…

Feature: Unboxing the message

Wilmot’s Warehouse’s motivational posters are a deadpan anti-reward

Could you pass me that block of cheese? No, the other one, the blue one. No, that's a slice of cake. The chee-- oh, for heaven's sake, I'll get it myself. Honestly, you shouldn't be playing sorting simulator Wilmot's Warehouse with an attitude like that. You're clearly not enthusiastic about the minimalist pile 'em up we can't stop playing. Maybe a few of its motivational…

Get Battletech for $12 in October’s Humble Monthly bundle

A second visit from the deals herald in a single day? Well, I never. It's for good reason, though, as Humble have just announced that October's Humble Monthly bundle will be headlined by none other than the stompy mech strategy titan, Battletech. Our Alec (RPS in peace) grew to be quite fond of Battletech when it first came out last year, so much so that…

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…

Snag a copy of Outcast: Second Contact free on Humble today

Who needs sales when people keep giving away neat stuff for free? Coincidentally reviewed by Alyse Stanley here exactly one year ago, Outcast: Second Contact is an exceptionally faithful remake of Appeal's Stargate-inspired open world action-adventure Outcast, first launched in 1999. Some argue that the remake is authentic to a fault, but I reckon that whatever flaws that may imply, this is still the best…

Grab yourself a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine on Humble

What's short, sweet, dumb as a sack of Imperial servo-hammers and free for the next 48 hours? Relic's Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, that's what. For the next two days you can grab this neat little third-person shoot n' slasher completely free via Humble, and keep it forever, although they do ask that you sign up for their newsletter in exchange for the goods. Despite Alec's faintly…

Investigative thriller The Occupation breaks its story October 9th

First-person thriller The Occupation (from Ether One devs White Paper Games) looks like an exciting spin on the immersive sim genre. Playing as a journalist in 1987 England, there's sneaking, talking and even a bit of Deus Ex-ish crawling through vents to be done in search of the truth behind a (presumed) terrorist bombing. Unlike most games, the entire story plays out over the course…
