Like Rogues? Like Space? Try Approaching Infinity

Hopefully I will be able to highlight at least one sci-fi¬†game here on Rock, Paper, Shotgun every weekend until the inevitable heat death of the universe. Not because I want to see the triumph of entropy, you understand, but because I like writing about SF and recommending neat things. This weekend's neat thing is Approaching Infinity [official site]. It's a very retro PC experience, which…

The Flare Path: Vapour And Vapidity

Early one August morning in 1999, the residents of Shrapnelton, Grogshire were woken by the sound of an overloaded Gooney Bird leaving its roost. Rattling chimney pots and spinning weather vanes, the struggling C-47 carried the hopes of thousands of sequel-hungry 101: The Airborne Invasion of Normandy¬†fans within its narrow fuselage.

World Supremacy is a turn-based global conflict game powered by randomly generated global maps. A good day for maps, then. It also has 8-person multiplayer and nuclear arsenals, for hot-seat or internet-enabled atom death. The full game is a princely $30, but…

Strange Adventures In Infinite Space! Free!

One Mr Britton starts my day with splendid news. Shrapnel have added to their fine roster of free games. Particularly, the splendid Strange Adventures In Infinite Space by Digital Eel. It's the precursor to Weird Worlds, which I adored - go see my Eurogamer review for further elaboration. If you can put up with the more retro-presentation, Strange Adventures is a very similar thing -…

Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Soundtracks

I've got a lot to write about recent Indie-faves later, but until then, here's a quickie about a pre-RPS indie fave which caught my eye. Specifically, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. Digital Eel have released their IGF-winning sound-track for download and ear-listening. You can get it from here. Hell, the Demo is on the same page and I strongly recommend you to give it…
