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…

Jumbo-scale World War 2 FPS Hell Let Loose launched into early access yesterday, and after some launch-day troubles seems to be gaining the acceptance of the historical shooter crowd. While developers Black Matter have at least one full year of development still planned, players can jump in now for some gritty squad combat on a massive scale, with huge maps and fifty players a team.…

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair making the retro platformer more retro

After looking back to ye oldene dayes with N64-style collect-o-jumper Yooka-Laylee, developers Playtonic Games are now leaping back another generation with its follow-up. Today they announced Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, a side-scrolling platformer linked by a top-down overworld with mild puzzling. After more years and maybe they'll go through Super Mario, then back through Donkey Kong, Pong, and oscilloscope games, ending with unidentifiable games…

Blasphemous blesses us with a grisly new trailer

If there's one thing that a Souls-alike needs to get right (Soulsyvania, in this case), it's evocative boss names, and Blasphemous clearly has it all worked out. Featuring the likes of "Expósito, Scion Of Abjuration", "Three Anguishes" and "Our Lady Of The Charred Visage" in its new trailer, it's no surprise that The Game Kitchen's grim platform hack n' slasher has attracted publisher Team 17.…

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…

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…

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…

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…
