Curious Expedition 2’s wild adventures are out now in early access

The sequel to the British gentleman explore 'em up is now out in early access. According to the developer commentary during their date announcement, Curious Expedition 2 sounds to be a much bigger conquest to tackle than the original. New art, new combat, more storytelling, and new exploration clubs are just some of the big changes that Maschinen-Mensch are making in the sequel.

Source Of Madness uses machine learning to generate eldritch horrors

One problem with unfathomable and unspeakable horrors in video games, right, is that they're designed by people. Oh the human brain can do weird and awful, no doubt, but it's bad at things it can't itself grasp. So I'm quite into how newly-announced roguelikelike action-platformer Source Of Madness uses machine learning and procedural generation to spit out its "Lovecraftian" levels and monsters, which do have…

Gamescom’s best of the rest: the coolest indies round up

This would not be RPS if I didn't return from Gamescom and write minimally about the triple A-xtravaganzas and maximumly about smaller, weirder things wot I saw. So here, have at it: my favourite of the independently made games I saw at this year's show. I flatter myself that the selection is broad enough that it covers genres to suit every taste. Strategy games! Card…

SteamWorld Quest gets a ‘New Game Plus’ mode

Card-casting robo-fantasy SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech was a cheery, story-led take on Slay The Spire’s deck-building battles, but unlike that infinite roguelike city crawl, it never felt like something to replay over and over. Developers Image & Form want to fix that a bit. So they’re giving players a reason to keep card-shuffling: a New Game Plus mode. And a few other bits…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

SteamWorld Quest hisses onto PC

Image & Form's ever-changing SteamWorld series continues today with SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech, this time sending silly steambots on deck-building card battle RPG adventures. It launched on PC this morning following an April debut on Nintendo Switch and, our Katharine said in her SteamWorld Quest review, is another good'un. She said it's gentle and inviting as deck-building battlers go, and has a regular…

SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech review

Image & Form have jumped from one genre to the next during their twenty-odd-year history, but they've done it with such confidence and consistent brilliance that I was fully expecting to fall head over heels with their new card-based RPG, SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech. And yet, there was a time when Quest almost lost me. As I kept playing the same bunch of…

SteamWorld Quest switches over to PC this month

After a couple weeks as a Switch exclusive, card-battling RPG SteamWorld Quest: Hand Of Gilgamech is hopping over to PC on May 31st. The fourth in Image & Form's consistently excellent SteamWorld series, the games have so far included two mining-heavy platformers and one turn-based squad combat game with a focus on trick-shooting. Naturally, the next step for the series is a Slay The Spire-styled…

Curious Expedition 2 ventures forth later this year

German studio Maschinen-Mensch have announced Curious Expedition 2, a follow-up to the 19th century explore 'em up we declared our favourite roguelike(like) of 2016. The Explorer Clubs will once again be heading out into uncharted (by us) lands to uncover unknown (to us) civilisations and maybe meet a dinosaur or two along the way, inspired by Verne and Doyle and other such vintage sci-fi writers.…

SteamWorld Quest announced: a card-based RPG that looks very in-Spire-d

Oh look, a new SteamWorld game. What a juicy, nourishing videogame fact to share with all my friends, the readers. SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech is a card-based follow-up to SteamWorld Heist and the SteamWorld Digs, all very wholesome games that can actually be completed by human beings. This new one is a turn-based fantasy card game that looks a bit like undying god…

Hellfront: Honeymoon is out now and an odd name for a strategy shooter

Hellfront: Honeymoon isn't exactly what I was expecting from The Journey Down developers SkyGoblin, but looks like a fun bit of arcade twin-stick shootery for up to four (local) players. Launched today, it's a single-screen party shooter/strategy hybrid where players are simultaneously trying to bump off each other while placing turrets and automated troop factories to harass their neighbours. There's a single player/co-op campaign as…

SteamWorlders merge with Fe folks to create Thunderful

What happens when iron meets steam? In the real world, clothes get smooth. In the games industry, however, they react and create another entity altogether. Image & Form, the studio behind the SteamWorld games, have amalgamated with the creators of upcoming forest adventure Fe (it actually has nothing to do with the elemental notation for Iron, soz) to create Thunderful. It’s a new company altogether,…
