Feature: Shoot the real me!

We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you. From a door opposite another you enters. This other you is a perfectly identical clone, created in the exact instant you entered the room, but as every second ticks by they…

Inkle’s Heaven’s Vault: a stunning sci-fi archaeology adventure

With 80 Days and Sorcery, Inkle have made some of our favourite games of recent years, but Heaven's Vault [official site] might just be their greatest achievement yet. It's early days, of course, but a half hour play session at GDC has already convinced me that this science fiction adventure is a very exciting thing indeed. It's a game about exploring the past, in the…

Sorcery! Parts 1 And 2 review

Three games into Inkle's four-part video game conversion of Steve Jackson’s legendary choose-your-own-adventure (CYOA) Sorcery! books, I decided I should catch up on the first two, and review them. Before noticing Richard already did. Oops. So, anyway, I’m covering the first two today, having chosen my own adventure through both. Then I’ll come on to the latest entry released last week. Of Sorcery! Parts 1…

80 Days Devs Announce New Game, Not An Adaptation

A new game from Inkle, the studio behind the delectable choose-your-own-adventure 80 Days [official site] (and the soon-to-be-on-PC Sorcery! series), was always going to be a reason to celebrate, but news that they're making their own world and characters from scratch this time is doubly so. 80 Days was at its best when it broke away from the well-known tale of Phileas Fogg in favour…

One Night With 80 Days

Inkle's 80 Days [official site] was one of my favourite games of 2014 and if it had been released on PC, I'd have spent hours and hours writing about it on this here site. Last week I was moving house, a task I always find daunting even though I've rarely settled in one place for longer than a year. I'd installed the newly released PC…

Made It! 80 Days Out On PC Today

80 Days [official site] was a mobile game various RPS writers have snuck mentions of in around the place whenever they could, keen to write about it. Myself, mine were mostly reminders that I really should play 80 Days after all the wonderful things I've heard about Inkle's globetrotting adventure filled with beautiful words. Well, now we can be loud and proud, as 80 Days…

Inkle’s Wonderful 80 Days Coming To PC This Month

If 80 Days [official site] had been released on PC last year, when it came to iOS devices and later to Android, it would have been in my top three games of the year on this platform. It's a beautifully delivered piece of interactive fiction, with deliciously evocative visuals, that puts almost every other collection of words I pored over in 2014 to shame. Inkle…
