Ssserpentine platformer Snake Pass releasssed

Most platformers take movement for granted. Sure, it might be tricky to nail precise timings and pull off complex chains but you have move buttons and jump buttons and they do your moving. That's certainly not the case with Snake Pass [official site], which launched today. Sumo Digital's platformer gives players a snake to wind, coil, and wrestle with to make him move and climb.…

Snake Pass’s serpentine platforming coming this month

I'm sssurprised we've not yet mentioned that Snake Pass [official site] will launch at the end of March. It's an interesssting-looking physssicssss-bassssed puzzle-platformer ssstaring a sssnake who, unlike mossst animalsss in platformersss, actually movesss a fair bit like a real sssnake. To move Noodle the Snake, playersss need to expand and contract hisss body, laying down coilsss and winding in that ssserpentine motion to build…

Snake Pass Offers Super-Slithery Movement Syssssstem

I'm too small so I get hemmed in and can't see where everything is over the crowd. I did manage to elbow my way over to Sumo Digital's Snake Pass [official site], though, and proceeded to check out its…

Tuning Up: Rock Band 4 Crowdfunding PC Port

Plastic-bashing rhythm game Rock Band 4 [official site] may roll on over from consoles to PC, if creators Harmonix can raise $1,500,000 (£1.1m-ish) from would-be shredders. Today they launched a crowdfunding campaign through Fig to fund a PC port, which they hope to release in autumn 2016. If they make it, they'll add one big feature not on consoles: they'll bring back the Rock Band…

The Segularity: Ryo Hazuki Added To Sonic All-Stars Racing

I thought I could let this pass without posting about it. It's just a bit of character DLC for Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, a kart racing game few people other than me seem to love. But... it's too good. It's Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki driving a transforming car/boat/plane modelled to look like an OutRun arcade cabinet. It's beautiful. It's the Sega singularity. I've recorded…

Feature: Can Cars Be Art?

The Beautiful Game: Inside OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast

This is the latest in the series of articles about the art technology of games, in collaboration with the particularly handsome Dead End Thrills. How better to celebrate 25 years of Mega Drive than on a site dedicated to PC games, via a game synonymous with Xbox-powered coin-ops? Not so fast, RPS! This copy of the seldom-bought PC version of OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast…

Regeneration: Doctor Who Gets 2nd Series

We've travelled into the distant past of yesterday to discover the news that after the success - 1.6 million downloads for the first three episodes, apparently - of the first series of Doctor Who games, they'll be doing it all again. Once again, it'll be by the BBC Wales TV team (including Moffat, et al) and Sheffield's Sumo Digital. Matt Smith and my squiffy namesake…

The PC Gamer one's mine - the "one last gig" that I mentioned in my twitter a while back - which is in their new issue. If PCG stick…
