Bloody co-op romp Killing Floor 2 is free on Epic this week

Crikey, it's all gotten rather gruesome on the Epic Games store this week. Co-op slaughter-fest Killing Floor 2 makes its debut on the storefront today, heading up this week's free lineup alongside carceral break-out The Escapists 2 and lonely spacefarer Lifeless Planet. You know the drill - these three are free to grab 'til next Thursday, at which point they'll be replaced by fantasy dungeon-crawler…

Worms Rumble will ditch turns for 32-player action

When Team17 first teased a new Worms game coming in 2020 they called it "worms like you've never played before." They've now officially announced Worms Rumble and yeah, it is definitely not your traditional Worms game. I was joking when I said "Worms battle royale confirmed" months ago but, well, here we are. The 32-player Worms action game will host a beta later this month…

Feature: Two thirds of these games are about dwarves or pharaohs.

The best Steam Festival demos: RTS and city builders

Since the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition has so many demos in it, we've all run off to harvest our own little crop to recommend, picking different genres as our guiding principle. As ever, though, the concept of "genre" has tripped me up like a rake in the dark, and left me flailing to define what connects the six games below. I guess, if there's…

Feature: Aye, robot

Main Assembly review (early access)

Main Assembly is a physics-based puzzle sandbox in which you build specialised robots to carry out different tasks, like ferrying a washing machine across a busy railway track or rescuing crash test dummies from burning buildings. It’s a kind of Kerbal Everything Program, powered by a comprehensive suite of easy-to-use creative tools that let you construct pretty much anything you can imagine: spring-loaded catapults, rocket-powered…

Hammerting digs in for this year’s launch with a new trailer

It's been a while since we've heard a good rumbling from the Dwarves at Hammerting - but then, you don't tend to hear from the bearded lot unless they've riled up a dragon or dug into hell. A year on, under newfound stewardship with the mountain lords at publishers Team 17, Hammerting developers Warpzone Studios have finally emerged from the forges with a new trailer…

Golf With Your Friends has left early access, adding a new course

After four years in early access, Golf With Your Friends finally launched in full last night. Blacklight Interactive's club 'em up offers crazy golf for up to twelve players, on zany courses full of jumps, rolling logs, spinny things, hostile cephalopods, bounce pads, and bombings. It's pretty silly, and a game I've known plenty of folks to have a ball with. Now it's officially out,…

Have You Played… Yoku’s Island Express?

After disappearing from the face of the earth for a few years, metroidvanias are everywhere. If you boot up Steam now and check New Releases, I’ve no doubt you’ll see two or three games that promise a pixelated creature jumping around on a 2D plane, unlocking doors and paths for ten or so hours.

Fire up your removal van, Moving Out launches today

Grab your friends and start throwing boxes out the window because Moving Out is here. It's a couch co-op game in which you will literally have to cooperatively carry couches (amongst many other items of furniture) and chuck them on your moving van as fast as you can. It's a fun and frantic Overcooked-like with some adorable character design to boot. When I played it…

Team 17 tease a new Worms game “like you’ve never played before” this year

Slapstick strategy series Worms has got something planned for ya this year. So grab your bats and explosive sheep. You'll probably need them. Team 17 have released a teaser video announcing that Worms is properly back since the first time since 2016. "Things are getting real in 2020," they say, though things still look pretty cartoon-y to me.

Throw some furniture and help your customers fly the nest when Moving Out releases in April

I have never enjoyed the actual act of moving out. All that packing and organising and cleaning, then the unpacking, ugh. Thankfully, Moving Out doesn't make you do any of the rubbish real life stuff - instead you run around as a wobbly little removal person throwing boxes and tables into your truck, without a care in the world about breaking some doors down or…

Overcooked 2 invites you to join the Lunar New Year celebrations in its Spring Festival update

Overcooked 2 today launched its free Spring Festival update, inviting us to celebrate the Year of the Rat by cooking up some yummy new dishes on some pretty new levels. The Lunar New Year-themed content will have us exercising our culinary muscles in five new kitchens, dodging a Chinese dragon that looks like he accidentally wandered in from a local parade.

Worms developers Team17 acquire Yippee Entertainment

Team 17, the mob who make Worms as well as publishing games like Yooka-Laylee and Overcooked, have bought games studio Yippee Entertainment in a £1.4 million deal. If you haven't heard of Yippee before, they predominantly work on licensed games for companies like Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and the BBC. They've also made a platformer series of their own, Chimpact, which is mostly for mobile but…

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair jumps out today

Playtonic's platforming power pals Yooka and Laylee today return with a new retro-styled adventure, Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair. This is thrown back a few years earlier than their 3D debut adventure (see our Yooka-Laylee review for more on that), this time jumping around in side-on sections with top-down overworld hub bits too. The important thing is, the lizard and bat are friends and they…

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Overcooked 2 goes to the circus in its latest DLC

One might be forgiven for thinking that Overcooked 2 is already a Carnival Of Chaos, but it’s becoming even more so with its latest DLC. As ever, there’s new levels and recipes to tackle, and new chefs to do so with. But there's also a new mechanic: huge great cannons to blast yourself out of. You know, for when your pal is on the other…

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair bounces out in October

Lizard and bat superfriends Yooka and Laylee will return for their second retro-styled platforming adventure on October 8th, developers Playtonic Games announced this week. Following the Banjo-Kazooie-inspired 3D platforming of 2017's Yooka-Laylee, they're looking just a smidgen earlier (or perhaps adjacent?) with Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, a side-scrolling "2.5D" platformer with a top-down 3D overlord. History be damned, this is the present and the…

Have You Played… Worms World Party Remastered?

I'm not sure I have, to be honest. With Worms games, it's hard to tell where one begins and the other ends - much like some real world worms. Was there supposed to be a defining characteristic of Worms World Party? Did it come out ten years ago or five? I don't know, and there is literally no available resource that could tell me the…

My Time At Portia gets in the mood for love with a romance update

Harvest Moonesque wholesome life simulator My Time At Portia just got an injection of romantic side-quests in celebration of this week's Chinese Qixi Festival, also known as China's Valentine's Day. In the words of my country's greatest poetess of love Celine Dion: Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that free updates are bon ("good" in French).

Overcooked is free to keep on Epic Games Store this week

The Epic Game Store's giveaway du jour is the brillo Overcooked. A co-op cooking game for up to four (local only) about wobbly little chefs running around top-down diorama kitchens, preparing ingredients and serving dishes. Simple, except sometimes you're trying to serve food during an earthquake, or across a kitchen built into multiple moving trucks. Good fun, and while its sequel improved on the recipe,…

Have You Played…Worms: Armageddon?

Worms Armageddon has the distinction of being the first game I took seriously. I don't know why, it was just a mindless game about worms blowing each other up with "accidental" mine placement and the occasional French Sheep Strike. How could that possibly be competitive? Well, back in the glory days of the internet, before things like voice chat that allowed people to hurl abuse at…
