Discover the best games of EGX Berlin with Indies Uncovered

Indies desperately tweak lines of code. Food trucks heat up industrial vats of chips. A collection of anime body pillows hang on the hooks, like that wall of the punished from The Handmaid's Tale. It can mean but one thing: EGX Berlin is upon us. And if you can’t make it - which you really should try if you can - the RPS Video Team…

Brendan is leaving RPS, come say goodbye

I used to email Brendan regularly trying to offer him freelance work, and he'd always be too busy with other jobs. Little by little we got him doing more and more for us, though - a weekly free games column called Free Loaders here, a weekly Premature Evaluation there, a monthly Ridealong, and plenty more besides. Eventually I looked at our list of freelance commissions…

Come to EGX’s weekend Rezzed Sessions and be the first to hear about Mediatonic’s new game

Earlier this week, we revealed all the cool secret-spilling talks that will be flooding the Rezzed Sessions stage on the Thursday and Friday of this year's EGX, but now it's time for a weekend double whammy. From designing interactive live action game Erica to what it's like for London studio Mediatonic to work with the chaps over at Square Enix (plus a sneaky peek at…

Gamer Network is hiring for a new tabletop site

RPS used to have a boardgame column and we still regularly get people asking if they can write about tabletop games for us. There will soon be a better location for that kind of work, however. Gamer Network - the corporate overlords of RPS, Eurogamer, GamesIndustry.biz, and more - are launching a tabletop website and YouTube channel. They're now hiring for all sorts of roles…

We’ve increased our freelance rates, so come write for us

As John carefully detailed before his departure, RPS was founded by four freelance writers who were frustrated by the falling rates they were being paid. Though those founders are gone, almost all those of us left behind (abandoned, dirty, grieving) were freelance ourselves at one point or another and have dealt with the same frustrations. So here's a thing: we're increasing our freelance rates. If…

Feature: A thing you should definitely do

How to pitch an article to Rock Paper Shotgun

Hello! We regularly receive pitches from freelance writers. Many of these pitches are excellent, many of them are bad, and many more forget to include the article idea and just yell at us at length for stopping them from ad blocking on the site. If you're interested in pitching an article of your very own to us, read on, as we're about to explain how…

Thank you and farewell, John Walker

I have a lot of conversations with a lot of people about what RPS is, and after years of trying to sum up this dumb website, I've settled on using the same answer each time. I say: ask ten people to describe what RPS does, and you'll get ten different answers. One will say we're that website which writes silly, in-jokey nonsense about PC games.…

Say hello to Nate Crowley, RPS’s new full time features writer

Much like a football manager (I assume), we here at RPS are always on the look out for fresh talent, especially if that talent a) is a very good features writer and b) you all really liked them and took to the comments to say they were good. So it is my distinct pleasure to reveal that we have hired Nate Crowley full time!

This year is no different: we've teamed up with developers Fishing Cactus to hold…

Listen to indie devs share their secrets at EGX Rezzed

EGX Rezzed is filled with indie games, which means it's also filled with indie game developers. It'd be foolish of us not to trap some of those developers onstage and make them share their secrets. That's what Rezzed Sessions are all about: giving you a peek at how games are made and how you might do it yourself, from the graft of starting a studio…
