Turn Skyrim’s flora colourful with Dreams Of Hurling Your Entire Face Into A Rose Coloured Plastic Fern

Skyrim may be a fantasy land--you can tell because people wear furs and have weird American accents--but wouldn't it be nice if it were a little more fantastic? You can now turn the land's flora all colourful and doodly with Dreams Of Hurling Your Entire Face Into A Rose Coloured Plastic Fern, a wonderfully-named new mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. It's…

Vignettes: Object twiddling to find new perspectives

We haven't written about Vignettes [official site], except in passing as part of other articles. I wonder why not? It's a lovely game-ish toy about twiddling objects until you find the perspective where the object becomes this single block of colour. Once you find that, you move the object again to see it from a new angle and it has become something else. It's delightful…

Watercolour Wandering: Sacramento Is Out Now

Sacramento [official site] is among the best-looking and most pleasant of the many walking simulators I've played. It takes a train across the water to a dreamy island painted with watercolours, home to weeping willows, grand glasshouses, and flying fish. I close my eyes and still see birds filling the sky at sundown. Sacramento is out now for free and I heartily recommend visiting for…

Watercolour Wandering: Sacramento Looks Lovely

I smile every time a new work-in-progress snip of Sacramento [official site] pops up in my Twitter feed and I think you might like it too. It's a dreamy-looking game with a beautiful watercolour style, a wee jaunt into a world of memory and imagination against a backdrop of busy modern life. Coming soon, Sacramento is the work of Dziff. She's part of that lovely…

Together Alone In Orchids To Dusk

Wandering around the desolate foreign planet you've recently crash landed upon in free walking simulator Orchids To Dusk [official site] is a somber yet wonderful experience. With only a few minutes to live, you take control of a desperate astronaut who's got nothing but the vast plains that stretch out effortlessly in front of her, a quickly depleting oxygen supply, and the soothing electronic melodies…

Free Loaders: It’s Been Emojional

You awake to the gentle motion of rocking. The train carriage is empty. How did you get here? Behind you, a thump. You spin around but there is only a large trunk in the aisle - it must have fallen from the rack above. After a while staring at the box, your curiousity takes hold. You click open the first latch. Did the box just…

Bang Bang Battleships Boom: Free Game USS Tlancy

Vlambeer's games are big, loud, colourful, and exciting but, y'know, they're also hard. What if you want noise and colours and flashes and hordes of enemies and torrents of bullets and explosions and screenshake without really having to try? What if you simply want to 'splode stuff real good? You might fancy a crack at USS Tlancy [official site], which follows the Vlambeerian explode-o-style. It's…

Odd Checkout Action In Free Game Forever

It's Minimum Wage Week at Rock, Paper, Shotgun! I mean, sure, why not? That could be true. Yesterday I posted about a cyberpunk call centre game, and this morning I've been working a checkout in Forever [official site]. It's a free game with an endless queue of customers to ring up, fiddling with objects in awkward physics to find and scan barcodes, while wondering "Wait...…

Watch The Night Drift By In Night Tune

I had meant to tell you about Night Tune [official site] when it came out two weeks ago, but its dreaminess interfered. Every time I load it up, my eyes get heavy, my focus fades, and soon I'm held trancelike as the night drifts by. It's a free little treat where we're driven endlessly, aimlessly through the night, the passenger of a phantom driver. Road…

Freeware Garden: Naut

Is there life on Mars? Well, my theory of a billion fully evolved micro-universes under each Martian rock may have yet to be proved, but one can always form brand new theories by downloading Naut and driving around the sandy plateaus of the planet in a brightly and randomly coloured '50s convertible.

Cruise Around Mars In A Convertible With Naut

Cruising across Mars in a sweet space-Cadillac while lightning strikes all around you can be wonderful in Naut, a free little walking simulator wot you do driving in. And then you slam into a rock which has suddenly risen out of the ground before you and your car flips and you're sent tumbling then spend twenty seconds trying to right it again. That bit's less…

Freeware Garden: offɭine

Do you know that sensation you get when travelling by train at night, looking out of the window, thinking and imagining things? Scaring yourself or deciding to let the hypnotic sights relax you? Well, offɭine is a game about this exact sensation. Really. I asked dev Pol Clarissou and he said so.

Musical Wandering: Porapora

Come on, that's enough. You've had enough. It's noon. Get up. Get out of the house. I'm going for a swim, and if you're still there when I get back, I'll be sorely disappointed. We follow a strict Victorian physical code here, you know: a brisk walk, a dunk in some nice cold water, then a seven-course lunch once we're all back. Don't pout. Oh,…
