World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment go free on Epic Games this week

Zombies, demons and... music? This week's free rotation on the Epic Games Store is an odd mix-up, that's for sure. You know the drill by now - from today until next Thursday, World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment are free to keep forever over on Epic. Once Thursday rolls by, it's back to full price they go, replaced in kind by Gone Home…

Feature: A wild night out

Have You Played… Night Call?

Santa Claus got into my taxi last night. Not some bloke dressed up as Santa. The Santa. With the reindeer and the sleigh and the presents. I wasn't even aware it was Christmas Eve when my gruff taxi driver rolled out of bed that day, but there he was, his large hat slung over a tired, booze-addled eyelid and his beard all messy around the…

Indie developers affected by GDC postponement invited to apply for relief fund

Last Friday, after multiple large publishers cancelled their appearances at the event, the yearly Game Developers Conference was postponed. Originally scheduled for March 16-20 in San Francisco, the conference has been postponed to "later in the summer" due to concerns about potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. GDC say they will refund the cost of passes to the conference to attendees but tickets to the event…

Undead gunslinger West Of Dead wrangles up a PC beta next week

Fancy spending Valentine's Day rootin' and tootin' with an undead Ron Perlman? West Of Dead, a pistol-whipping twin-stick announced at XO19 last November, is celebrating the loveliest holiday with its first PC open beta. Starting February 14th, developers Upstream Arcade are kicking open the gates of Purgatory, Wyoming for a ten-day trip into West Of Dead's corpse-filled caves - no roses required.

Flippin’ good platformer Dandara expands with Trials of Fear

Motion sickness warning ahead. Dandara's disorienting world is about to get dizzier. Developers Long Hat House this week announced a new Trials of Fear Edition. Arriving "soon", the new edition bulks out Dandara's upside-down metroidvania sprawl, adding new regions, new bosses, and a revitalised story to give more gravitas to your gravity-defying antics. Just remember to take deep breaths and make sure you're drinking enough…

West Of Dead is a damned twin-stick western starring Ron Perlman

Even Purgatory needs cops, apparently. West Of Dead, a tense twin-stick shooter about keeping the dead where they belong, was announced at last night's XO19 show, and it looks a right stunner. Hellboy (the good one) himself Ron Perlman lends his gravel-filled throat to a protagonist who's part supernatural sheriff and part Marvel's Ghost Rider. Y'see, sometimes the dead just don't stay dead, end up…

Mosaic brings maximum discomfort on PC next month

As much as I might like winter, it's hell for commuting. The buses are crowded, the darkness has sapped the colour from the air. Each day feels like it begins after the journey out and ends before the trip back home. The perfect time, then, for Krillbite Studios to release Mosaic - their eerie corporate follow-up to 2015's Among The Sleep. After a four year…

Feature: Throw your hands up at me

Gamescom’s best of the rest: the coolest indies round up

This would not be RPS if I didn't return from Gamescom and write minimally about the triple A-xtravaganzas and maximumly about smaller, weirder things wot I saw. So here, have at it: my favourite of the independently made games I saw at this year's show. I flatter myself that the selection is broad enough that it covers genres to suit every taste. Strategy games! Card…

Atomicrops: hands on with the twin-stick Stardew Valley game you didn’t know you wanted

I have been telling people I played this game called Atomicrops, and they go “Huh, haven’t heard of that one, what is it?” And then I go “It’s sort of… twin-stick Stardew Valley?” because so far that is the best shorthand I can come up with. Although it describes itself as an action roguelite farming simulator, which may be more helpful for you. The framing…

Bad North overhauls its campaign in today’s free update

Bloody Norsemen. They don't know how good they have it, up there on those tiny frozen islands. Here I am, sticking another water bottle in the freezer and they're still up there bashing each other into a bloody pulp over a pile of snow. Typical. It's about time someone went up and gave them a good shake-up. Things might be grim up north, but Bad…

Feature: Who taxis the taximen?

Night Call review

When I'm in the back of a taxi I'm most likely to be hoping that neither I or the driver end up coming off as an awful person. I am extremely unlikely to think of the driver as "a priest, a confident, a friend". But for all I know, you, the person reading this right now, are a big weirdo and pour your heart out…

Per Aspera lets you build a colony on Mars, without useless humans holding you back

There's a metaphysical thought experiment I like called The Ship of Theseus, which I'm not going to explain to you because a.) I'm sure you already know it and b.) It's casual Friday, not played-out philosophy Friday. That is next week. Anyway, this concept seems to have a legacy in Per Aspera, a story-stuffed strategy offering from Tlön Industries and Raw Fury, about terraforming the planet Mars…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Kingdom: New Lands rides free on the Epic Games Store

The second in Noio's side-scrolling strategy series, Kingdom: New Lands, is the latest giveaway on the Epic Games Store, and the last weekly freebie of the current sale. It's a minimalist action-strategy game where you play as a mounted monarch in a lush 2D world. You tell the peasantry what to build and where, and convince them to do the job with coins thrown from…

Sable slides back into 2020

That game you don't know much about other than you saw a trailer with hoverbikes and skidding and deserts and ruins and an art style looking mighty inspired by French comics artist Moebius, or Sable as it's officially titled, is coming later than expected. Previously due some time in 2019, it's now pushed back into 2020. That's fine, because you weren't really sure what it…

Screenshot Saturday Sundays: a handcrafted hedgehog, a fuchsia forest, and a valuable volume

I think the reason that I like Screenshot Saturday so much is that it necessarily makes us focus on the little things in games. All those background vistas and assets that are easily overlooked when you’re actually playing a game instead of happily watching gifs of all the hard work that’s going into them. This week, then: a shy cardboard buddy, an absolutely gorgeous forest,…

Kathy Rain fella’s Whispers Of A Machine heard in April

A cybernetically-enhanced futurecop is on the trail of several strange murders in Whispers Of A Machine, an adventure game collaboration between Kathy Rain creator Joel Hästö and The Samaritan Paradox maker Petter Ljungqvis. It'll launch on April 17th, publishers Raw Fury announced today, which is doubly welcome news because I'd entirely forgotten about it since it was announced two years ago despite enjoying Kathy Rain.…

Atomicrops sprouts a colourful, nutritious debut trailer

Much as my girlfriend adores Stardew Valley, its gentle pace is a little soporific sometimes. Atomicrops, on the other hand, appears to be the game's jittery, over-caffeinated cousin, blending Harvest Moon-esque farming and romance with twin-stick shooter combat and a colourful post-apocalyptic setting. Bird Bath Games's vision of the end of the world is perhaps a little more Adventure Time than Fallout, but I reckon…
