Premature Evaluation: Flotsam

Depending on who you ask, the apocalypse is not happening, extremely close, or already here. There's already been at least one casualty in the form of usual premature evaluator Steve Hogarty, who has either been raptured or is away for two weeks. No other explanations are possible. I have filled the time this week with post-global flood city builder/Waterworld simulator Flotsam, a special favourite of…

Flotsam floats out to early access

I'm not sure how I feel about the way Flotsam makes our impending ecological disaster look so inviting. It's a floating city builder where you construct everything out of scavenged ocean junk, while making sure your seaborne survivors don't run out of water that won't kill them. I've leapt straight to chatting about death and disaster, though, when Flotsam bills its apocalypse as "feel-good". This…

Find your place in Pine’s ecosystem of intelligent animals

Open world ecological simulation Pine drops you in the shoes* of a human who lives among intelligent animals, and asks you to carve out your own niche. You’ll have to figure out how to navigate the world, craft what you need, and generally survive. And also not get stepped on by a bipedal mammoth. Take a look at the launch trailer below. *He's actually barefoot,…

Hell Is Other Demons double-jumps onto Steam

Released last month on Kongregate's new store Kartridge, Hell Is Other Demons makes the hop to Steam today. It's  a neat-looking platform shooter by Cuddle Monster Games, and a fast, twtichy (although not especially hardcore) arcade game about bouncing around arenas in hell, blatting waves of demons and spending your gathered hell-dollars on upgrades to do it all over again. Straightforward high-score-hunting stuff, although there…

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…

Kongregate’s new games store Kartridge is open for business

It feels like there's been a flurry of activity recently in PC games stores. Discord recently added a retail section to their multi-chat client, and now browser game hub Kongregate is getting in on the action. Kartridge is their new store, available in both browser and desktop app forms. It's mostly focused on smaller independent studios, as well as supporting a number of free downloadable…

Speed Brawl (out now) puts a sporty speedrun spin on arcade fisticuffs

Punching stuff is fun, and Speed Brawl proves that punching everything fast while bouncing around the screen like a loon is even better. Released on Tuesday, Double Stallion's Speed Brawl is a platform beat 'em up set in colourful steampunk 1880s Britain after an alien invasion. The nation is rebuilding, and Speed Brawling (what it sounds like, really) is the new national sport. There's six…

Peter Molyneux’s The Trail strolls onto PC

Lionheaded bullfrog Peter Molyneux and his 22Cans studio today launched the PC version of their hike 'em up The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site]. It's a game where players walk a path across a wild frontier, not to be confused with walking simulators where we get to have a lovely wander where we please. Along the way, folks get to collect stuff, take up a…

That hiking game from Peter Molyneux is coming to PC

What’s the auld rascal up to now? The Trail: Frontier Challenge [official site] is a multiplayer hiking game by 22Cans, the studio headed by Peter Molyneux and responsible for the troubled and still-in-early-access civilisation builder Godus. It's been out on iGizmos for some time, but now it’s coming to Steam, say the developers. I haven’t been keeping track of it but let’s look at this…

Feature: Monstrously compulsive fantasy-themed idle game

Realm Grinder is the new AdVenture Capitalist, and it’s destroying me

I like to think I am strong. I am not strong. I am weak. I have fallen for another idle, aka clicker game. I thought I had fallen through the black hole that was infinite money generation game AdVenture Capitalist and come out the other side wiser, armoured and immune against such manipulation of my lizard brain. Then, while researching games for this week's Unknown…

Die By The SWOOOORD Colon Lords Of The Sword

Here's a thought. If Kongregate doesn't add a mute button I'm going to find everyone involved and poke them in the eye. I'm reminded of this after playing SWOOOORD! Colon Lords Of The Sword for a bit. It's a dungeon-crawling action game, with randomly generated levels, and incredibly frequent permadeath.

To Be Different: Ludum Dare 24

Ludum Dare returns tomorrow but there's still time to influence the global gamejam, with voting on the theme ongoing at this very moment. There are some excellent choices, with a sprinkling of the lost and the lonely, including 'ruins', 'deep space', 'end of the world', 'trapped in another world', 'tunnels' and 'abandoned'. There's also '1000 kittens', which I definitely didn't just give a '+1' to.…

A Good Steer: Roadeo

The current Indiegames' browser game pick is a game with a near-genius idea and decent execution. Roadeo is a two-player racing game where one person drives the car, and the other plays as the road. Yep. The car loses by coming off the road, while the road loses by crashing into the other scenery in the map. It can be played competitive or co-operatively. It's…

Saving The Company: Profitable Platforming

Here's a micro-platformer for you to have a bit of fun with. Platforming isn't all rescuing princesses from castles and saving the world: Sometimes it's just about cold hard business. Saving the Company is a devious tale of corporate rebellion in the face of plummeting stock prices, and it sees you attempting to enact a company rescue & recovery strategy, through puzzle solving platforming. Sort…

Impressions: Wonderputt

Lots of people are talking about Wonderputt, even though it’s a Flash crazy golf game...wait, come back! It’s a Flash crazy golf game with alien abductions and rocket ships! I can’t help but notice that people are still walking away, pretending to have urgent appointments elsewhere, perhaps with more complex and worthy games. Well, forget those games for a minute. I made Wonderputt sound zany,…

Ding-Dong-Pong: Drop

OK, now that we've had our dose of morning bitterness and recrimination, let's turn our attentions to something altogether more cheery. Indie dev Quickfingerz' free browser game Drop combines ambient music-making with pong-style physics. Blessed with minimalist, icy neon prettiness that evokes an thoroughly abstracted Frozen Synapse, it's a puzzle game that's both relaxing and challenging. Unless you play the sandbox mode, in which case…

Pretty Two-Dimensional: Antimatiere

A dozen IM windows light up the Rossignol Research Crater with the same link. This link. It's a game called Antimatiere, hosted on Kongregate. It's a 3D puzzler that's all about the world becoming 2D. There's been some kind of accident and people and their things have become two-dimensional, and are now pasted on the walls, floors, and ceilings. Your task - as a person…

I Found Tealy & Orangey To Be Entertaining

Mr Tony Gowland pointed us toward his clever puzzle-platformer, Tealy & Orangey, and I am glad that he did. It sees you controlling two jumping balls at the same time - they both move left if you move left, both jump if you hit jump, and so on - to create some fiendish conundrums of spatial puzzling. Initially their obstacle courses are simply in parallel,…
