Super Pig X only reveals the level once you’ve already died horribly

Sos Sosowski, of McPixel, Stomp it Up, and Mosh Pit Simulator infamy, has now set his sights back towards the under-serviced 'doing violence to farm animals' genre with Super Pig X, a follow up to the 2012 Flash game Super Pig. It's a brutal, Super Meatboy lookin' platformer where you guide a pig around pitch black levels until your inevitable demise splashes handy, revealing blood…

Mosh Pit Simulator wobbles into early access for VR

Virtual reality, some might tell you, is the future of emotional interactive storytelling. Whether that's true or not, we should remember that VR has also great potential for fannying about like a big idiot. Lo, the clouds do part and Mosh Pit Simulator doth descend into early access. It's a goofed-out physics sandbox from Sos Sosowski, maker of the manic McPixel, and a game where…

Feature: I've got no bones to pick with you

Mosh Pit Simulator’s space dinosaurs and boneless idiots

At one point, I found myself asking if animals have bones. Sos Sosowski is a self-styled “mad scientist of video games”, so it is perhaps fitting that his latest game began, as so many scientific discoveries do, with a mistake. You may have seen the jiggling jelly-like naked men in the many gifs that have documented the development of Mosh Pit Simulator [official site], you…

McPixel dev’s Mosh Pit Simulator is going to VR hell

Please understand that I am humourless. I have no patience for fun, jokes, japery, antics, shenanigans, tomfoolery, or banter. I've surgically severed my face's smiling muscles and developed a workout routine to pump the frowners. I am no fun. And yet -- mercy me! -- I laugh like a drain watching snippets of Mosh Pit Simulator [official site]. It's an upcoming VR game from McPixel…

The Magpie Collection: Odd Bundle Replacing Stolen Stuff

Berlin's A Maze festival is pretty great, so I hear. Unfortunately, as will happen when hordes travel to a big event, a fair few people had stuff nicked this year. Laptops, phones, passports, and so on totalling 17,000€ were yoinked by dastardly scoundrels, so a group of indie folks are trying to raise money to buy replacements for the unfortunate. People like The Stanley Parable's…

Stomp Stomp Stompolution: McPixel Dev’s Stomp It Up

McPixel is a wonderful little jolt of a game, as much an excuse for silly things to happen as it is a puzzle game. McPixeleer Sos Sosowski's latest game skips straight to the silliness, with none of that slouching nonsense. Stomp It Up is made to be played on a dance mat. Oh sure, but can play on keyboard if you don't have one on…

Pixel Prioritised: McPixel Steam Greenlight Interview

McPixel has exploded onto Steam and is the first game to reach Valve's storefront through the Greenlight process. There's a feature about the indies and Steam coming later, courtesy of Nathan who has been visiting Fantastic Arcade where he was witness to a Valve panel all about Greenlight. I didn't go to Fantastic Arcade but I did wake up at 7.30 this morning, endure the…

Feature: Piracy For Fun And Profit

Wait, Why’s Pirate Bay Promoting An Indie Game?

If you're a frequent RPS reader (or an infrequent RPS reader with uncannily good timing), the image on the front page of ubiquitous, recently-banned-in-the-UK-under-extremely-dubious-circumstances torrenting site The Pirate Bay might strike you as a bit familiar. If not, you may have still been able to guess that it heralds from Sos Sosowski's McPixel because, well, the first four words on the page will tell you…

In The Game Of McPixel, You Win Or You Explode

Remember McPixel? You first met the bizarro rapid-fire point-and-click adventure when it was naught but a bouncing baby demo. It may have vomited on your shirt. It, er, finds those sorts of things funny. But now McPixel's all grown up and available for purchase, so naturally, its humorous sensibilities have matured. A little. OK, so it's still amazingly low-brow in places (for instance, McPixel's go-to means of…

Money In Old Hat: The Indie Buskers

While watching people code is unlikely to be an event at this year's 2012th London Olympathon, it has become more popular than I ever imagined it would. Admittedly, I imagined it would be marginally less popular than drinking your own eyeballs through a crazy straw so the fact that it's an activity of choice for anybody is something of a surprise to me. You may…
