Feature: Drinks all round

Premature Evaluation: Griftlands

You can buy drinks for reprobates in Griftlands. The mingling crimefolk of this sci-fi card game hang out in bars and harbours, lounging on static screens hoping to sell you stuff, or waiting for a fight to break out so they can jump in for either side. There are hairy bouncers, froglike bartenders, and scar-faced bandits. Cultists, bent cops, and bounty hunters of all kinds.…

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…

Don’t Starve: Hamlet squeals out of early access

After years of surviving in the wilds and on islands, Don't Starve has returned to civilisation and... oh god, no one told me living in a city would be a struggle too. Klei Entertainment last night launched Hamlet, the third expansion for their survive 'em up, after six months in early access. It sees our motley crüe of survivors stumbling into a city of posh…

Oxygen Not Included leaves early access on May 28

After two years in early access, Oxygen Not Included will launch in full on May 28th, developers Klei Entertainment announced today. Oxygen is a cheerygrim space colony management sim from the mob being Don't Starve, sending teams of workers into the depths of an asteroid to mine, build, repair, fall ill, starve, go mad, and suffocate to death. I mean, ideally those last few things…

Oxygen Not Included exits the early access airlock late May

Klei's popular space science, management and survival sandbox Oxygen Not Included will launch out of early access late this May, almost exactly two years from its original debut. In a recent announcement on their official forums, Klei stated that the game was in the final stretch now, and there's only one update planned between now and launch. The final version of the game, while not…

Don’t Starve Together won’t be starved for updates this year

Among a very strong stable of games, Don't Starve Together is easily Klei Entertainment's most popular. Turns out that adding friends was the secret spice the cartoon survival sandbox needed. Today, Klei announced their roadmap for supporting the game this year, and they've got a lot planned out. While they're going to be toning down the frequency of wild and wacky special events, they're going…

Feature: Oh no there are too many games

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…

Don’t Starve expansion Hamlet tells a curly new tale in early access

Just when you thought you'd explored every nook and cranny of Don't Starve's nightmare otherworlds (plural), a new set of porcine problems present themselves. Hamlet, begining a quick spin through early access today, is another expansion for Klei's survival action RPG sandbox. This one takes Wilson and his sketchy pals to a new, far more civilised land. There's a town run by aristocratic pigfolk, trap-laden…

Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered leaps out of the shadows

I hardly ever revisit singleplayer games, so the fact that I've snuck all the way through Mark Of The Ninja two and a half times should tell you something. One and a half of those times actually involved just as much stabbing and shuriken tossing as sneaking, but shh. I say this because Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered has slunk out of the shadows, boasting…

Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered will be a cheap or free upgrade for original owners

Klei Entertainment have announced that Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered, the revamped rerelease of their rad stealth-o-murder-a-platformer from 2012, will launch on October 9th. It'll boast high-resolution art and improved sound but still be the same fine game at heart, and accordingly won't be expensive for folks who got Mark Of The Ninja on Steam the first time around. Klei have said that those who…

Don’t Starve: Hamlet snuffling into December

You summer holiday to a tropical city populated by aristocratic ambulant ham, I'm sorry to say, must become a winter vacation. Don't Starve developers Klei Entertainment this week announced that they have delayed the launch of its Hamlet expansion from June to December 2018, saying "we're not quite where we want Hamlet to be yet." Which is fair enough: better late than rubbo. In the…

First-person platformer Hot Lava launches – bring a pal

It's a risky gambit to launch an offbeat little game in the middle of the E3 hype-storm, but Klei Entertainment just love danger if Hot Lava is any indication. It's a first-person platformer starring a cast of highly meltable plastic action figures, navigating a human-scale world where every child's playtime nightmare has come to pass: the floor is lava. Today, it launches (as an open…

Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered sneaking onto PC too

Swell side-scrolling stealth game Mark Of The Ninja is being snazzed up for the release of a 'Remastered' edition. The game is largely hidden in the shadows for now, but developers Klei Entertainment say it "will feature fully redone 4K visuals for both gameplay and cutscenes along with enhanced audio and new particle effects". Having announced Mark Of The Ninja: Remastered for Nintendo Switch last…

Don’t Starve Together now fighting through The Forge

If you've got the hang of not starving with your pals in multiplayer survival sandbox Don't Starve Together, it's time for a new challenge: not getting kicked to bits in a gladiatorial arena together. Don't Starve Together has launched the first of its new time-limited events, a trip into a fiery world to fight the Battlemaster's army. Still, maybe you'll get to drink your own…

Griftlands is a ‘pirate sandbox’, says Klei

We haven’t seen much of sci-fi RPG Griftlands [official site], apart from a short trailer featuring a drunk frog-man getting turned in by his space pal for a sweet bag o’ cash. But developers Klei have a good track record with their cartoony games. So I annoyed them with some questions and got a few more details. As expected, it’s a game of money-grubbing and…

Oxygen Not Included adds oil – what could go wrong?

The relaxed mining of Steamworld Dig 2 is still satisfying my desire to burrow deep underground but today I am reminded of another (more disastrous) subterranean delight. Sci-fi management sim Oxygen Not Included [official site] has recently been given an earthy update, bringing both oil and petroleum to the cavernous underbelly of your homely asteroid. These fossil fuels are bound to be a safe source…

Gettin’ piggy wit it! Don’t Starve: Hamlet announced

Klei Entertainment have announced Don't Starve: Hamlet, a new expansion for their fiendish survival game. Don't get any silly ideas about Danish princes or William Shakespeare (though an immortal bard would be a fiendish foe), as the expansion will focus on the simple and sensible idea of a town of aristocratic pigmen. A hamlet. It's a pun. Wordplay, you know? Jokes. The singleplayer expansion will…

Griftlands is Klei’s new cartoonish sci-fi swashbuckler

Judging by the survivalist Don’t Starve and subterranean piss manager Oxygen Not Included, Klei are very good at drawing cartoony things and then secretly planting loads of quite-good cogs and switches behind it all. It looks like they’re trying for another good ‘un. Griftlands [official site] has been announced at E3. It’s a sci-fi RPG “where everything is negotiable: money, loyalty—even morality”, says the developer.…

Early Access launch for Oxygen Not Included, the space colony management sim

Oxygen Not Included [official site] is a space colony management sim from Klei, the guys behind the excellent Invisible Inc. It's been in alpha since February but now it's launched on early access, and I'm intrigued. It's got the aesthetic of Don't Starve, another Klei game, and involves building up a settlements beneath the surface of a distant planet and battling through the inevitable crises, whether that's clouds…

Oxygen Not Included drifts onto Early Access May 18th

Klei are the developers of Invisible, Inc., which is the best turn-based game since Chess. It stands to reason, then, that I'm always going to be interested in their releases, and Oxygen Not Included [official site] has had my interest since I first heard about it. An alpha has been sold for a while but the space colony management sim is moving to the next…
