Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus review

Cyborg Popes vs. immortal pharaoh terminators, woop woop. As Games Workshop rent out their license to anyone who can spell ‘ork’ correctly, their slightly fashy gothic future setting occasionally turns out a real treat of a match up. Bulwark Studios’ Mechanicus is one of the most polished and atmospheric titles to use the name in years, starting with a base coat borrowed from tactics genre…

Tactical dungeon-crawl Warhammmer 40,000: Mechanicus is out now

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, Bulwark Studios's tactical dungeon crawler based on the Games Workshop mega-universe is out now. It pits the Adeptus Mechanicus (an especially barmy bunch of cyborg engineer-cultists) up against the Necron; what you'd get if you put Warhammer Fantasy's Egyptian undead and The Terminator in a blender. Systems-wise, it's a blend of FTL's choice-filled exploration and XCOM-like tactical combat, with your squad of…

Premature Evaluation: Rise of Industry

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s hawking his wares to the ravenous consumers of Rise of Industry, a tycoon game about growing berries and other less important things. You’ve got to give the people what they want. Booze, sex, tasty little berries harvested from a local plantation and driven straight to the farmers…

Have You Played… Project Highrise?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. If you've ever played XCOM and wished you could spend more time building your antfarm base and less time watching your operatives die, Project Highrise [official site] might be the game for you.

Going Up: Project Highrise Is Now Actually Out

"It's Thursday," Graham corrected me earlier today as I chatted about the usual Wednesday stuff - hanging myself from Yggdrasil, saying 'hump day' loads as if it's hilariously smutty, etc. If I can't even remember which day it is, what chance do any of us have of remembering that a game we reviewed way back on Tuesday is now actually released? Almost zero. The game…

Towering Above The Rest: Project Highrise

There are many Sim games I'd like to see resurrected, prime among them SimEarth and SimLife, which were more enjoyable and educational than all of the geography classes I daydreamed through. SimTower is the outside pick though, its blend of construction and basic life sim making for a game as enjoyable to observe as to play. Project Highrise [official site] is a new take on…

Upwards, Lonely Robot Is A Cryptic Platformer

Can robots feel lonely? Do we even have the technology yet? And even if we did, why would we want our robots to feel loneliness? Wouldn't that be cruel? Will Upwards, Lonely Robot [official site] tackle these questions when it comes out on March 10th? I don't know, actually, because there is not much information on this puzzle platformer aside from its cryptic trailer and…

Crowntakers review

A brief description of Crowntakers reads like an exercise in box-ticking. "Roguelike turn-based strategy meets RPG", says the Steam page, "alternative endings...resources...companions...mighty equipment...hexagonal battlefields." Behind all of that is a game that strips down almost every aspect of its design to present something half-way between a solo boardgame and a coffee break take on Heroes of Might and Magic. It's a clever game, though not…
