Premature Evaluation: Stationeers

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s pottering around in RocketWerkz' space station sim, Stationeers, and learning that, just perhaps, it's better to stay on Earth. Why is a giant egg on top of my microwave? I’m trying to play through Stationeers’ dire tutorial, but I actually feel like I’m participating in one of…

RocketWerkz announce neo-noir open world game Living Dark

I'm not entirely sure what's going on in Living Dark, but I'm intrigued. It's a neo-noir open world game announced on Tuesday by RocketWerkz, Dean Hall's studio. While he's been heading a team busy with Stationeers, which released on early access this week, a separate team has been working on Living Dark under wraps for the past year. At its heart is a relationship system…

Dean Hall’s Stationeers spacewalks into early access

I want to be the type of person who plays and enjoys Stationeers, the Space Station 13-inspired construction and management game from Day Z creator Dean Hall's studio Rocketwerkz. Unfortunately, I am the type of person who initially gets excited at the prospect of managing complex interlocking systems, then finds it all too much and scampers back to Overwatch. That won't stop me trying mind,…

7 games to look forward to that you won’t find at E3

As we recover from the trail of destruction left behind by E3's news conferences, it’s important to take a breath and remember not all the cool kids are hanging out in LA this week (and even if they are, they don’t always get heard). Here’s seven neat-looking games that have yet to be released, to whom we will gladly extend some of the industry’s overflowing…

DayZ creator announces space station sim Stationeers

DayZ creator Dean Hall has announced Stationeers, a game about constructing and operating a space station on your tod or with chums. No, don't confuse this with Ion, his effectively-cancelled space sim. Stationeers promises complex simulation of station workings, and it's encouraging that Hall cites the phenomenal (and phenomenally complex) Space Station 13 as an influence. It's due to hit early access "soon" but is…

DayZ creator’s space game Ion has been cancelled

Ion, a simulation-heavy space game inspired by role-playing adventure Space Station 13 and announced by Dean Hall back at E3 in 2015 has been cancelled, reports Eurogamer. A sad day for fans of dying from a lack of oxygen in a floating metal cylinder, but perhaps not surprising given the ambition behind the game. “I want a game that is not a game," Hall had…

Dean Hall to unveil new RocketWerkz game at Rezzed

Dean Hall (him of DayZ creation fame, hence the header image) will be using EGX Rezzed to offer people the first chance to see and play the latest game from his studio, RocketWerkz. I've lost track of what Hall has been up to so having dug through the press release and the RPS archives the game in question is NOT Ion and it's NOT a…

Dean Hall on VR development: “There’s no money in it”

Dean "Rocket" Hall, the force behind DayZ and more recently his own studio, RocketWerkz, has made some fairly strong comments about the perils of VR development, the hostility of the tech's community, and his belief that profitability is extremely unrealistic for games developed for the host of new goggles. His own studio, he says, is unlikely to develop for VR again.

Pew Pew: DayZ Creator Releases Out of Ammo

RocketWerkz' VR project Out of Ammo has tiptoed into official release with very little fanfare. It's quite sneaky for a game about leading little LEGO-esque soldiers into combat, guns a-blazin'. Out of Ammo has been an experimental attempt at VR for Dean Hall's (DayZ) fledgling studio. It's a strategy game that has you building up defenses and directing units as they head into battle, and…

Impressions: DayZ Blokey Dean Hall’s Out Of Ammo

I suspect the 'I'd love to see X in VR' conversations have dried up already. No, we're not getting Dishonored: CorVRo's Birthday Surprise or Total WaVR: VRHammer, because the headsets' screens aren't really up to it, and few of us have PCs which can power it anyway. As that message sets in, thoughts turn from what VR gaming would ideally do and towards what can…

Ion: DayZ Creator’s Sandbox Space MMO Announced

DayZ creator Dean 'Rocket' Hall has announced his next game, Ion [official site], at E3. He calls it a "simulation MMO that explores mankind's expansion into space" and Space Station 13 is cited as an inspiration, which sounds like a fine mix for wacky emergent antics. It'll be simulation-heavy, and sounds great. Come have a look at the first trailer, and hear what he had…
