Have You Played… Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. A game so old that Kieron wrote about it before running away to join the X-Men, or whatever it is he does these days. Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble isn't quite a product of the Jazz Age that it so stylishly emulates,…

7 Grand Steps Takes One Giant Leap Toward Release

Since its earliest inception, 7 Grand Steps has been an intrigue among intrigues. For one, it comes from Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble maestro Mousechief, which already pretty much guarantees that the end result won't step outside the box so much as it will scream forth from it, Hulk-like, in a confetti shower of splinters. 7 Grand Steps adopts a boardgame-style rule set to…

Beta Foot Forward: 7 Grand Steps

With Unwritten: That Which Happened now a thing That Is Happening and Ritual Dementia still a distinct possibility, 7 Grand Steps isn't the only multi-generational story in gaming, but it's still the only one I've played and therefore the one I'm most capable of writing about. It's a fascinating game, with the appearance of a mechanical device, token-operated and belonging to another time. Mousechief's earlier…

The Generation Game: 7 Grand Steps Demo

It is said that games nominated in the IGF competition immediately become ghosts, haunting the memories of journalists and the creaky attics of Twitter, but without any true corporeal form.

Dynasty Worriers: Arcada Mia

The next game from Mousechief, scurrilous indie developers behind the award-winning Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble, has been revealed. Kind of. We know for certain it's called Arcada Mia, and while mechanical details are a touch thin on the ground Mousechief describe it as not Civilization, not Puzzle Quest, not Oregon Trail, not King of Dragon Pass and not Passage, but "bearing qualities of…

Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble In Trouble

Well, this isn't a micro-controversy I was expecting to wake up to. A previous-RPS fave and Gametunnel's 2008 Innovation award winner has been pulled from Big Fish Games' portal after climbing its charts due to - gasp! - salacious content. Cue casual fans getting distinctly less casual. The fairly-hefty eight-page comments thread has the full story, but the (minorly spoilery) details can be found beneath…

Dangerous High School Girls In Award Ceremonies

This is the biggest award-ceremony welcome surprise since Belle and Sebastian won that Brit award: The WGA's nomination for RPS favourite Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble. Frankly, it deserves an award for the title alone. We decided it was an opportune moment to talk to Mousechief's Keith Nemitz about their sudden brush with mass fame...

Dangerous High School Girls In Trouble

Sometimes a developer does the right thing, and gives their game a good - nay, splendid - name so I don't have think up a rubbish pun title. This is about as One Of Those Times as it gets. I'd been half-following the game since I heard the name, but Leigh Alexander's review informed me that they've actually released a demo for the School-set Jazz-Age-RPG…
