Feature: Shoot the real me!

We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you. From a door opposite another you enters. This other you is a perfectly identical clone, created in the exact instant you entered the room, but as every second ticks by they…

The Forgotten City has me stoked to solve murder-puzzles, again

The Forgotten City, true to the spirit of its theme, is both a game that has yet to be released and is a game that has been available for years. While I've always been one of the few hold-outs that's been annoyingly "meh" about Skyrim, I fired up my copy this week to play through the The Forgotten City, which began as an extensive mod…

The DreamboxXx Bundle supports LGBTQ+ and Immigration non-profits

If you read our site, you're probably familiar with Robert Yang at this point. One of my first introductions to Yang's work was through this RPS article on The Tearoom, which is a "historic bathroom simulator" that dealt with gay issues but could not include gay sex, so the in-game penises were replaced with guns, because no one in the industry will ban a game…

The Tearoom is a ‘historical public bathroom simulator’

We’ve been teased for months by Robert Yang, creator of Radiator 2 and Cobra Club, with 3D models of high-grade urinals and promises of pee physics but now the game he’s been working on is out. The Tearoom [itch.io page] is a “historical public bathroom simulator about anxiety, police surveillance, and sucking off another dude's gun”. You might think that’s a euphemism - and, I…

Student games: stealth vomit, injury hell & sandwiches

You may know Robert Yang through his games or his creative Level With Me series of interviews, which ran on this very website, but did you know that he is also a teacher? One of his courses at Parsons is described as "Building Worlds" and yesterday he shared some of his students' mid-term projects. They're "autobiographical" games that you can play in your browser, and…

Robert Yang’s Gay Hunks Arrive On Steam In Radiator 2

We've spanked a hunk, watched a hunk suck a lolly until it all turned sinister, wanked off a car, scrubbed a hunk, and snapped dick pics in Robert Yang's recent sexy gay games. They're funny, yeah, and intimate, caring, thoughtful, celebratory, and challenging. Now he's remastered those first three to be a bit fancier and collected them in Radiator 2 [official site], which is out…

Free Loaders: Not Safe For Work Or Your Mum’s House

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the human penis is in want of a photographer. A fundamentally interesting organ, it is versatile, yet vulnerable. Undeniably ugly and yet, somehow, ugly in all the right ways. It is this humble male appendage which brings us all together this week. Suffice to say, do not read on if your boss is sitting next to you. Unless…

How To Make A Great British Bake Off Game

The latest series of The Great British Bake Off has come to an end, causing those of us hooked by its cream-filled buns, end-of-the-pier puns, and oddly sincere celebration of the human spirit, to feel as empty inside as an incompletely prepared batch of jam donuts. After a few days spent facing a future free from sugar, gluten, and the strange tension between Paul Hollywood…

Rub-A-Dub-Dub: Robert Yang’s Rinse And Repeat

It's late in the year, but between Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015, Metal Gear Solid V, and now Robert Yang's Rinse and Repeat [official site], might 2015 become known as The Year of the Video Game Shower? Maybe. You know. It could happen. A game about scrubbing a hunk in a gym shower, Rinse and Repeat is the latest in Yang's fascinating series of…

Playable Journalism Journalism: Level With Me Updated

Say, remember when Robert Yang interviewed a load of neat-o level designers while collaborating on a Portal 2 level with them as a sort of playable journalism? I enjoyed the Level With Me series back when I only read RPS, and now I'm here I'm glad I get to post about it. The first Level With Me creation, made with folks including Brendon Chung, Dan…

“Watch A Dude Stick Stuff In His Mouth”: Succulent

Robert Yang is putting his hunky guy to work. Tanned, groomed, ripped, oil-slicked, and stripped, the same beefcake character model has starred in his last two games exploring gay male sexuality and culture. Last time he implored us to "Hurt Me Plenty" and spank him through a Leap Motion controller, now he and two clones are in control in Succulent with a funny and unsettling…

Borges ‘Em Up: Intimate, Infinite

If I were to recommend one author to people wot like games, it'd be Argentine short story writer Jorges Luis Borges. Oh sure, video games crib from loads of fantasy and sci-fi authors, but that's all set dressing. Borges is closer to what games are. His stories are often systems--rules, puzzles, and riddles--and concepts as much as they are narratives, all supporting each other. And,…

Feature: The (Indie) Stars Align

Experiment 12 review

Terry Cavanagh. Jasper Byrne. Ian Snyder. Jack King-Spooner. Richard Perrin. Zaratustra. Michael Brough. Robert Yang. Alan Hazelden. Benn Powell. Jake Clover. TheBlackMask. You have probably played games by all of these people. VVVVVV might ring a bell. Maybe Lone Survivor or Kairo. Or, if you're really, really cool, Blues For Mittavinda. Etc, etc, etc. You get the idea. But now they've all congealed into a…

Star-Quashed Lovers: Radiator

Look to the skies. It's a trailer for the new Polaris, a reworked and extended version of the first of the Radiator experiments. It's a stargazing, although I imagine some people will consider the eyes to be firmly placed on the navel or shoes. New additions in this version include "completely re-done graphics, interactions, voice acting, narrative, a bit of full-frontal male nudity, and neck-strain-tastic…
