Priceless Play – the pick of the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality

If you exist in almost any corner of the internet which serves the intersection of video games and social justice, you've likely seen the Bundle For Racial Justice and Equality from the good folks over at itch.io. The bundle has been, by all accounts, an overwhelming success. I got to watch the donation amount tick over the million-dollar mark, then the two million-dollar mark, and…

Feature: Now Play THESE

Priceless Play – 4 April 2020

Now Play This, a festival for experimental game design, is one of the many games events either postponed or cancelled to stop the spread of COVID-19. The festival has been running for six years or so, celebrating the strange and unexpected in game design, and each year it brings together some truly spectacular art pieces and games. This year, the festival team has had to…

Feature: 20 free games you can play right now

Priceless Play – 23 November 2019

I am floored by the sheer number of indie games available at the moment. If you look, there's a game about nearly everything under the sun -- multipalyer kissing, packing up an old apartment, baseball lesbians, haunted empty MMO servers, Bitsy poems about the sea, and alien art exhibitions. If you have only ten seconds to spare, five minutes, or two hours, there's a free…

Feature: Workers of the world, unite (and play)

Priceless Play – September 8th 2018

In the United States, the first Monday in September is Labor Day -- a day to celebrate workers, and all the strides that working unions have made. Like many other Americans, I work on Labor Day. Freelancers work on Labour Day. Those in the service industry work on Labor Day. And though there are many calls to “remove politics from games,” (I honestly have no…

Nova Alea: A Gentrification Demonstration

Nova Alea [official site] is the most recent Molleindustria game. It explores/demonstrates gentrification and property market forces through a tiny patch of city land, its skyscrapers infecting one another with wealth as they climb, at first unimpeded, then with restrictions designed to slow or stem the tide of gamified buying and selling.

The Great Art Upgrade: Overlooked Bits Of Art/Gaming

"Can games be art?" It's a question I spent part of yesterday complaining about while brandishing a forkful of jacket potato. I used to engage with the debate on those terms but it's so unhelpful - a strange grab for cultural legitimacy by association. When it comes up in such an explicit way it tends to feel like the games industry has smeared itself with…

Fat Cat Simulator 2014: Play To Build A Better Mousetrap

With a long weekend in full swing for (many of) us here in the UK, why not kick back, put your feet up, and enjoy a pleasant little management simulator? Those scallywags at molleindustria released To Build a Better Mousetrap on Thursday (International Workers' Day, that was), putting players in charge of developing, making, and selling goods, as well as--sigh, I guess--making sure your rodentine…

A Little Cross: Run, Jesus Run!

Ironically, it's RPS-reader Final Sin who brings us news of this product of the 10 Seconds theme of the Experimental Gameplay Project. It's Run, Jesus Run! It's all based on the gospel. It happens in 10 seconds. Left and right move. Space bar does Jesus stuff. Run, Jesus Run!

Faith Fighter 2: You Gotta Believe!

Have you been following the Faith Fighter controversy? If not, I'll explain the background below, but it's taken a fun turn. Molleindustria - who you may remember from Oiligarcy - found that their original Faith Fighter has outraged the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (and so indirectly 1.3 billion believers). Since Molleindustria was upset they missed their irony, they pulled the original from their site…
