How To Make A Great British Bake Off Game

The latest series of The Great British Bake Off has come to an end, causing those of us hooked by its cream-filled buns, end-of-the-pier puns, and oddly sincere celebration of the human spirit, to feel as empty inside as an incompletely prepared batch of jam donuts. After a few days spent facing a future free from sugar, gluten, and the strange tension between Paul Hollywood…

Lovey-Dovey: The Witcher 3 Patch To Expand Romances

Love. Ewww! Gross. Don't think I haven't seen you around the place, holding hands, smooching, gazing longingly, and sliding hands up- the point is, once you awful people get loved up, you want to do more of it. More chats about plans and futures and furniture and - worst of all - wonky little clones of yourselves to show the whole dang troubled world how…

The Complete S.EXE, Cara Ellison’s Series About Games, Sex and Relationships

From 2014-2015, RPS's Senior Scottish Correspondent Cara Ellison wrote S.EXE, 29 columns about games about sex, games about love, games about the space in between those two things, games about sexuality, and games about schlongs. Unfortunately the series is on indefinite hiatus as Cara takes a break from writing about games after her spectacular but surely exhausting Embed With... project, but whether you missed it…

Lovekill – CoH 2 and Total War: Rome 2 Weekend Trials

"This Valentine's Day," reads a sign in my bank's window, "give the gift of buildings and contents insurance." The cornershop plan to only serve couples maintaining physical contact. I'm facing eviction as, in lieu of rent money, my landlord demands a sworn statement that I think I'm capable of love. In this wacky world, I'm not at all surprised that Sega are marking Valentine's Day…

Love In The Dark: Steenberg Releases Exo Test

You may think you're something of a video games whizz. After a few minutes of button-bashing and mouse-waggling you'll figure out any game, you like to think. No. Nope. Not with this. Love maker Eskil Steenberg has released a public test version of his next game, Exo (formerly Dark Side of the Moon), and you should read the helpful file named How_to_play.txt. Without it, you…

The Steenberg Emails

Well, email. "Emails" just makes it sound cooler, like a political thriller. I'm sorry I lied to get you in here, but there's something fun waiting for you. I promise. You might remember the post from last week when I DRAMATICALLY REVEALED Love guru Eskil Steenberg was working on a strategy game, codenamed The Dark Side Of The Moon. It was all very exciting. I…

We Can Finally See The Dark Side Of The Moon

Lovely Love-maker Eskil Steenberg has finally revealed what his next project will be. He just popped a video up on Youtube, showing off the prototype for a Dark Side Of The Moon, a "real-time strategy stealth action game". The video is a quick look at some of the units he's preparing for the battlefield. It looks like he'll be focusing on smaller battles, rather than…

Eskil Steenberg’s Love Is Free

It's as if he wanted his own pun thread. Love, the strange and beautiful co-op building/combat MMO, is now completely free. If you have never played it, you should, because it is one of the great outliers of game design. Eskil has been quietly working on in for several years, and it's packed with surprising features, clever AI behaviour, obscure solutions, and hallucinatory visuals. I…

Falling In Love Again

Delicately enigmatic online shootery buildery co-opery thing Love is just a slightly bit less enigmatic now, waving in new users to its impressionistic world via a demo. The one-man MMO show has just welcomed an expansion, Dark Matter Spreads Over Fair Land, where the world you're on is a slowly corrupting via a powerful artifact. As Eskil Steenberg puts it: "Bad things happen". The demo…

Very Decent Proposal: Portal Brings The Love

Oh now this is special. Properly special. Extraordinarily talented map creator Douglas "TopHATTwaffle" Hoogland was commissioned by one Gary Hudston to create a very particular series of Portal 2 levels. Working with Rachel "Miss Stabby" van der Meer, he set about creating some truly spectacular Portal 2 puzzles that lead up to, well, something of a proposal.

Love Grows Stronger, Deeper, Cheaper

In stark contrast to the usual internet drum-banging that occurs whenever a developer patches a new feature into their game, Eskil Steenberg has been growing Love- his beautiful, enigmatic, online building game- on the sly, with new features arriving simply as precious treats for the game's existing community. As of this week, he's dropped the price of the game to €10 for 180 days and…

Free Love Weekend

No, nothing like that. It's Eskil opening up his minimally-multiplayer shooting and building game, Love, to everyone, just for this coming weekend. Being co-op down to its procedurally generated soul, it's a game that is best played with chums, so why don't we get on there and have a RPS love-in on Saturday night, perhaps from about 7pm BST? You can download the client now…

Love Spreads: Free “Avail” Expansion

Steenberg has announced that there's going to be a free expansion for his mini-MO, Love. It's called Avail, and it's going to allow players to benefit more from their progress within the game, specifically in a player advancement system and in being able to extract a number of precious resources from the landscape. Progression will be based on standing with other players who are online…

Eskil Steenberg Made Love

Beautiful and weird co-op combat and settlement-building MMO Love has been released. After months of furious development, one-man studio Eskil Steenberg has finally brought his project to completion, and it's one of the most individualistic, esoteric experiences in gaming. It really is not like other games, and as such it's my opinion that you should probably try it for yourself. Love is a challenging thing,…

You Love Us: Quinns On Love Beta

Here's a little quick thing for you while Quinns and I work on the penultimate (or is it?) part of Gameboys from Hell. Quinns has also done some hands-on-impressions of Love for Eurogamer. You can read them over here. It's also worth noting that the first forty or so posts in the comment thread are a kind of performance art. Hurrah!

“What Is Love, Beta?”

The "beta" version of build 'n' shoot micro-MMO Love has almost arrived. It's not beta in the usual sense, of course, because like the previous alpha-test version you'll need to pay a 3€ fee for access. Currently the testing stage is only for previous subscribers, but it'll be opened up as access for all on the 7th. Eskil has been working hard squashing bugs and…

Worlds Apart: Love & Neverdaunt 8bit

Oddly, Love isn't the only trippy single-programmer MMOG with an emphasis on player landscaping and building that's currently in beta. There's also Neverdaunt 8Bit, or N8, which swaps procedurally generated gorgeousity and lethal roaming AI for a retro aesthetic and plain old messing around. I took a closer look at both of them recently and find myself liking one an awful lot more than the…

Morning, Love

Having pootled around in Love for a while last week, and watching Steenberg's updates on Twitter, I decided it was time to have a decent session in the alpha build of the game. This led to me tell my girlfriend that I'd be spending the morning "in Love with James." She didn't bat an eyelid, used to such early-morning incoherence, and continued getting ready for…
