King Of Dragon Pass successor Six Ages will arrive on PC in October

The cows have been sacrificed. The rituals have concluded. The RPS god-talkers return from their tent and declare that Six Ages: Ride Like The Wind, will finally be released on PC on October 17th. Six Ages is of course the spiritual successor to the legendary King Of Dragon Pass, the 1999 strategy-RPG hybrid about leading an iron age village to prosperity in a dangerous land…

Mondo Museum will help put together your dream exhibition next year

Running a museum, I imagine, is probably quite hard work. Academia is a nightmare to deal with, VIP visitors and families want to be entertained. Ben Stiller's chasing a tiny wax Owen Wilson all over the shop and the T-Rex skeleton has gotten loose, again. Developers Viewport Games reckon that sounds like an absolute riot, and have only gone and thrown together their own museum-builder.…

The Basement of Curiosity: Season One – recap and index

Dwarf Fortress might be the most interesting game ever made. It might even be the best. But it’s certainly not the most accessible. It looks weird, its control scheme appears to be lifted from some sort of alien church organ, and a good proportion of its features are in fact collisions between the many, many bugs that have sprung up in its thirteen-year development history.…

Dwarf Fortress Diary: The Basement of Curiosity – End of Season One

Surprise! This is the end of the first season of the Basement of Curiosity - but it’s not the end of the story. The series is taking a break… but only because Nate needs to get ready to go and chat with Tarn Adams, the creator of Dwarf Fortress, on Sunday 1st September. Read on to find out more... -- On the last day of…

Five cool games I played at PAX East 2019

As you may have surmised from a bunch of very non-hardware-related interviews I've done recently about the likes of the excellent Nowhere Prophet, Sparklite, Unrailed, the return of Super Meat Boy and what's next for Astroneer, I was packed off to PAX East a couple of months ago. I was mostly there to host a panel about the best video game weapon of all time…

Live out your wildest Henry VIII dreams in upcoming Fit For A King

Who among us has not dreamed of becoming a regent, tasked in theory with running the country but in practice exerting diplomatic humiliation on your rivals by living to the maximum excess possible. These dreams come true in Fit For A King, the Henry VIII simulator that’ll allow you to carry out his three favourite activities: getting hitched, executing people, and throwing cash around like…

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…

Dwarf Fortress digging up paid version with official graphics pack

Underground hit Dwarf Fortress will soon emerge into the daylight on Steam, which definitely would be the games store favoured by dwarves as the punchline to a joke. Dwarf Fortress 'Classic' will still be available free, as ever, but this paid version will come with an official commissioned graphics pack for players who cannot fathom the ASCII art as well as new music. Bay 12…

Bad Cupid’s dating robots smooch their way out of beta

When they're not taking the subject more seriously in Boyfriend Dungeon, Kitfox Games apparently spend their time skewering the dating genre. Bad Cupid - billed as Salty Bet but for flirting - was a cute distraction when it first entered beta. Two chat-bots with videogame (or literary) character's personalities enter, and hopefully they leave hand-in-hand as they attempt to woo each other while the audience bet…

Bet on love, not war in procedural date-gambler BadCupid

Salty Bet is just a lovely concept for casual, passive entertainment online. Two random fighting game characters enter, one leaves, and you get to bet imaginary money on who for bragging rights. Kitfox Games clearly agree, as they've just launched BadCupid, a less cacophonous, more romantic take on the concept. Two characters with AI personalities go on a date in the locale of the audience's…

Sword-smooching hack n’ slash hybrid Boyfriend Dungeon cuts a fine figure

Boyfriend Dungeon is a strange title - it manages to sound both more kinky and less weird than the game it's attached to. Announced back in October by Shrouded Isle and Moon Hunters studio Kitfox, it's about smoochin' on swords. Part hack and slash action-RPG, part dating sim, it features a variety of weapons that transform into an equally diverse suite of suitors. There's men…

How Six Ages and King of Dragon Pass explore the politics of myth

It wasn't till some way into development of Six Ages: Ride Like The Wind that designer David Dunham realised he was making a game about climate change. Like its 19-year-old predecessor, the seminal King of Dragon Pass, Six Ages is set in Glorantha, a fantasy universe originally cooked up by Greg Stafford, and sees you raising a community in the wilds after being expelled from…

Date your sword in Boyfriend Dungeon

Picture this steamy scene. You've spent a long day down in the dungeon, hacking your way through kobolds and disarming the occasional trap. There's treasure to be found, sure, but when you return to the surface world, what you really need is a warm meal and a cuddle. Thankfully, the sword you've been wielding all day just happens to polymorph into a dream date, so…

Lead a sacrificial cult in The Shrouded Isle

Get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and seek a simpler life with a lonely island community serving an inscrutable bloodthirsty god in The Shrouded Isle [official site], released today. Yes, our new role in life is high priest of a village where, every season, someone must be sacrificed to our god sleeping beneath the waves. I've had worse jobs. But with…

Conduct Mayoral Sacrificial Duties In The Shrouded Isle

I'm not sure what's going on in The Shrouded Isle [official site] but that's why I'm so intrigued. Just look at it. What's that all about? According to Steam, you take up the role of mayor of a seaside village. Sounds friendly enough. I wonder what kind of duties I'll have there -- oh, wait. It looks like I'll need to "sate the blood-hunger of…

Make Your Own Myth: Moon Hunters

There was a time when I thought Puzzle Quest and the like formed a signpost pointing to a bright future, in which themes and genres would become the bricks in a huge architectural toy chest. Who wouldn't want to play a pinball game in which highscores and skillshots translate into the bank balance and item unlocks for a family of Sim-like Little Computer People? Or…
