Destroy The Brain: Destroy The Brain

RPS chum RoBurky has been making games with his comrades in righteousness from Cambridge's Anglia Ruskin University in the UK. Having had a good old waggle of their programming sticks for a Gamejam earlier this year they made Destroy The Brain. In it you play an invincible sliding tank thing that must destroy the brain of a creepy space station contraption. You can play it…

No Man Is An Island. That’s Cyclops: Isolated

Oh! Roburky's gone and done a game, as part of the 205 (Count 'em!) in Luddum Dare 17. It's called Isolated, and you play a very nervous Cyclops trying to enter the social world. You interact by (abstractly) asking questions, making statements, and expressing your opinion on the other person. Continue until you've pissed everyone off and you have to return to your island, reduced…

The Complete Alice And Kev

We've mentioned Roburky's Alice And Kev before, in the Sunday Papers. In fact, since it went fully meme-active, you probably saw it... ooh, almost anywhere. However, it's actually drawn to a close with a final entry, which is a moment I think worth bringing to your attention. If you haven't been following, it's the often touching story of Roburky trying to play a homeless parent…

Roburky’s Dwarf Fortress Diary

RPS chum Robin "Roburky" Burkinshaw is fast becoming something of a celebrity PC gaming diarist, with his recent Sims 3 diary blog attracting enormous attention from across the gaming sphere, and even from mainstream media. We, however, asked him to write something that definitely won't get into Entertainment Weekly: the journal of a Dwarf Fortress campaign. What he came back with gives you some idea…

Stranded Beyond The Wormhole

We've begun exploring the unknown systems of wormhole space in Eve Online. I had my first encounter with the freaky Sleeper alien ships last night. I then returned to normal space slightly richer, and slightly wiser. The wormhole - an unstable, temporary gate to an uncharted region - was still open when I logged out of Eve, and so I let my corporation chums know…

Videogames Killed The Video Star: Reset

RPS-reg Roburky has written an interesting if minor experimental game. It's called Reset, and is available here. It's inspired by and based around "Rest to Reset" by Trash80 (who you'll know as the creator of the music for Darwinia). Roburky loves it so much he tried to turn its structure into a videogame - the best comparison is an alternate-dimension music video, with a game…

Spore: Five Activations?

I hadn't tried activating Spore more than three times, but reader roBurky did. It happened like this: roBurky: EA apparently changed the Spore DRM from 3 to 5 initial activations without telling anyone. Jim: did you discover this yourself? roBurky: Yeh. I installed on three computers, then contacted support to get more ready for when I'd need them roBurky: Was told I still had two…

Eve Online: The Empyrean Age

The latest evolutionary expansion of the Eve universe should be arriving next week, and it bears the title "The Empyrean Age". As ever the title is a kind of clue as the contents, this time it means "age of fire" or somesuch Latinate cleverness. This is presumably a reference to the way that the expansion includes faction warfare, or the extension of PvP inwards to…

It’s All A Bit Nebulous

To celebrate the fact that I spent the last week lounging about playing Sins of A Solar Empire and Eve Online we thought we'd have something of a themed week. The theme is: SPACE! We came up with this partly because we have a bunch of space-game content we need to offload on you at the same time, and partly because vast stretches of nothingness…
