Build factories to make food in Automachef this summer

Cooking is a puzzle of chemistry and engineering process, really, the correct application of thermal and kinetic energy to the correct combination of materials in the correct order. Fry 'em ups like Overcooked and Cook, Serve, Delicious channel that into chaotic time-management and now Automachef is coming on an industrial scale, having us construct production lines to create meals en masse. Think more along the…

It looks like chaotic co-op cuisine celebration Overcooked 2 will soon be adding to its existing suite of free updates. A tease by developers Team 17 appears to show new recipes; a new unlockable chef; and a fresh kitchen complete with koi carp swimming around, totally unbothered by the hubbub, and it looks like these will soon be released for players to dig into. Here's…

Genesis Alpha One lands on the Epic Store today

Genesis Alpha One - a ship-building, space-exploring roguelike management FPS of mad ambition - is out now. One of the lesser-known exclusives snatched away from Steam for temporary Epic Store exclusivity, Radiation Blue's game of ethically questionable (final) frontier survival has been on my radar for a while. Not only are you trying to maintain and expand a colony ship as it makes its way…

Feature: Live free, craft hard

My Time At Portia review

It’s hard to keep your eyes off the horizon in My Time At Portia. Its valleys live in the jagged shadow of broken high-rises, buildings draped with moss and towering factories splitting apart at the seams. I needed to concentrate on the group of adorable pastel coloured llamas ahead. My presence didn’t interrupt their frolicking for a second, but I wished they’d at least try…

My Time At Portia harvests full release today

The game which sounds like summer hols at your posh boarding school gal pal's chateau spent riding horses and investigating the secrets of the grandmother who lives in the attic but is in fact a build-o-farm 'em up, My Time At Portia, today launched properly. A bit like a 3D take on Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon and such, it's about farming and fighting and…

Team 17 to publish hundred-player WW2 shooter Hell Let Loose

As the cycle begins anew, World War 2 shooters are in vogue once more and Hell Let Loose is ready for the front lines. Developed by new studio Black Matter, it's a gritty, semi-realistic World War 2 team shooter for teams of up to fifty players a side. There are unit classes, vehicles to drive, ride in or escort and apparently a resource-gathering strategic layer…

Overcooked 2 heads to the beach today for some fresh Surf ‘N’ Turf DLC

Ghost Town's messy co-op chefmatch Overcooked 2 has me in the mood for some barbecue, with a new bit of DLC featuring smoothies, kebabs and helpfully pushing your fellow chefs into pools so they can cool off. A bit oddly timed, given that the nights are growing darker and colder, but that's perhaps why - even shut indoors and playing videogames, we can get a…

Gorgeous platformer Planet Alpha is out now and has views to literally die for

Enough time has passed for most of us to have forgotten about Shadow Of The Beast. The world is ready, once again, for a platformer that looks like a Roger Dean album cover given life and Planet Alpha (developed by a team of the same name) certainly looks the part. It's out now. In Planet Alpha, a lone, lost space-person wanders through an alien world,…

Feature: A pinball-platforming palate cleanser

Yoku’s Island Express review

There's an easy grace available to you in Yoku's Island Express. Steer the main character onto any of the pinball flippers embedded in the floors and walls and you can punt him into the air as predictably as a jump in any other platformer. Use those paddles to aim Yoku into one of the other pinball-inspired mechanisms, however, and the game takes hold, shooping Yoku…

Overcooked 2 gets New Game+ in free update

Frantic, fast-paced co-op chef-‘em-up Overcooked 2 has released its first content update, bringing a New Game+ mode that asks players for even greater culinary perfection. Accessible after completing the game once, it will rank every level out of four stars instead of three, pushing your cooperation and chaos-management to their limits.

Petroglyph’s Forged Battalion rolls off the production line

Petroglyph, the stratheads behind real-time strategy games from Star Wars: Empire At War to Grey Goo, today launched their latest effort in clicking on men to make other men kill them. Forged Battalion is its name, and customising your units with wacky weapons and wheels is its game. Fraser Brown quite liked tinkering with that when he prematurely evaluated Forged Batallion in its early access…

Overcooked 2 review

Co-op chef-‘em-up Overcooked 2, much like its predecessor, is less about cooking and more about chaos management. The sequel builds on the solid foundation of the first game, bringing in new recipes, hazardous levels, and online multiplayer for maximum pandemonium. Oh, and you can throw ingredients now, which can be incredibly slick if you sling them across the kitchen and directly into a pan, but…

Yoku’s Island Express demo bounces out today

Update: This demo was actually released on PC in early July, but only came to my attention when publishers Team17 made an announcement around the demo's launch on more consoles today. Shame on me. Still! If I missed it back then, maybe you did too? Apparently done with our Graham's long-running promise to review Yoku's Island Express, developers Villa Gorilla today released a free demo…

Vehicular puzzler Mugsters looks a little like Blast Corps

Aliens have invaded - what's your your first weapon of choice? Laser gun? Nukes? Mugsters posits that an ice-cream truck will do the job. It's a vehicular action-puzzler by solo indie dev Reinkout and published by Team 17. I've been following development of this one ever since I saw some animated GIFs of it on the developer's Twitter feed. Why? Because it looks like N64…

Overcooked 2 serving online multiplayer in August

Ghost Town Games will serve more chaotic cooperative cooking action on August 7th with Overcooked 2, following up on 2016's wonderful chef 'em up. Along with more hazardous kitchens and tricky recipes, the sequel will add one often-requested ingredient: online multiplayer. We've declared the first Overcooked one of the the best co-op games and I'm sure this will sure be at its best shouting on…

Feature: Flipping out

Video: Yoku’s Island Express is a bit Metroid, a bit pinball and a bit good

The pinball platformer is an idea developers like to feed quarters into every so often. If a character is round (Pac-Man, Kirby) or can bunch up into a ball (Sonic, Samus, enslaved Pokémon), then they’ve probably been bashed about by flippers at some point. But these games tend to be reskins of traditional pinball; few reflect their source material. Yoku’s Island Express doesn’t have a…
