The 23 best bite-size games for busy lives

I am dad, hear me whinge. Too many games, not enough spare time, for all my non-work hours are spent kissing grazed knees, explaining why you cannot eat the food in that cupboard, constructing awful Lion King dioramas out of toilet roll tubes and being terrified that the next jump from the sofa to the armchair will go fatally wrong. I'm lucky in that my…

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…

Have you played… Out There?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I feel a bit bad for Out There, which can loosely be described as a more forlorn, non-combat take on FTL. I put so much time into its mobile version that, by the time its spit’n’polished PC version rolled around, I had almost…

Impressions: Out There Ω Edition

Out There is a pacifistic take on FTL, yet arguably even more brutal. As a lone, lost starpilot, jump from system to system, simply trying to stay alive and trying to gather replacement resources as the journey steadily eats away your fuel, oxygen and hull integrity. Don't worry about weapons, don't worry about crew members: just don't die. Out There Cleaves a little closer to…

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…

So I’ve Been Playing Android Games On My PC

I've cracked it! I've discovered the formula for eternal and invincible perversion! I have, this day, established a way in which PC gaming website Rock, Paper, Shotgun can post about intriguing mobile games without the slightest concern that we're stepping beyond our self-elected remit! Well, maybe a little, occasionally, hesitantly, sideways. Three exclamation marks in that introduction. That's how pleased I am that a program…

Time To Dive Into: Sea Of Stars

My excuse for not spotting the latest video of Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars is a worthy one. I've been too busy playing Out There on my Android CleverPhone. Like the Infinite Space series, it's a mysterious RPG that drops the player in space, surrounded by the unknown. You should try it and I shall try to find out if it's still coming to…
