Premature Evaluation – Sigma Theory: Global Cold War

There are few people I find as fascinating as Mister Julian Assange, the debonair hacker and out-of-work Geralt cosplayer who hid inside an embassy for seven years, skateboarding into the ambassador’s bedroom and demanding to know the new wi-fi password so often that they finally got annoyed and kicked him out. Assange has the campy flare of a mid-tier Drag Race contestant, randomly appearing on…

Sci-fi espionage sim Sigma Theory starts snooping out early access

Future spies are the best kind of spies. What they lack in self-contained underwater [duck] breathing apparatus, they more than make up for with mind control and scary drones. By crazy random happenstance, those are just two of the tools available in Sigma Theory, a sci-fi cold war 'em up about espionage and global domination. It just launched in early access.

Out There Chronicles choose-your-own-adventure coming to PC

Mi-Clos Studio's Out There from 2014 is a roguelike that can be devastatingly harsh, set in a lonely, mysterious universe. That's where most of the harshness comes in, after all. You take up the role of an astronaut who's just woken from cryogenic sleep far from our solar system. Along the way you discover ancient alien relics that assist you in your journey, but their origins aren't ever really…

Void & Meddler Episode 2 Continues Cyberpunk Oddity

Episode 2 of sleazy posturing cyberpunk adventure game Void & Meddler [official site] launched overnight, and I'm quite keen to get stuck in. Once I finish the first episode, that is. I got a bit stuck, thanks to the wonders of adventure game logic, but it's a testament to the game that I've not given up and told it to toss right off. I do…

Void & Meddler: Episodic Cyberpunk Adventure Started

I really dug weird, sleazy cyberpunk adventure game Void & Meddler [official site], and was glad to hear that creators Dorian SRed and Trevor Reveur planned to flesh their ideas out in an episodic series. The original demo explored a sinister, sad city full of strange sights like giraffepeople, none of which were explained, and had some great slow and atmospheric moments. I'm keen to…

Cyberpunk Adventure Void And Meddler Going Episodic

I really enjoyed the surreal cyberpunk world of Void & Meddler [official site] last year. Created in a game jam, it was an adventure game which gave a fine sense of a weird, sprawling world by not explaining any of it. No lengthy exposition about the grubby future, the humanoid animals, our character's history, or any of that guff - you launch the game and…

Sigma Theory: Turn-Based Espionage From Out There Dev

Developers of Out There [official site], lovely Fighting Fantasy-style game about alien languages and dying alone in space, are making a new game - and this one is coming to PC from the off. In a French games magazine called Games Magazine, developers Mi-Clos name their next work as Sigma Theory, a turn-based political espionage game in the style of Homeland and House of Cards.…

Oh Mah Gawd – Out There: Ω Edition

Space exploration adventure/suicide mission Out There was my favourite mobile game of last year. While this may sound like the grandest of statements, please do bear in mind that I only played about four mobile games last year. Even so: Out There was and is brillo. It plays like FTL converted into a tranquil, slightly forlorn gamebook - this is not a game about being…
