Been There, Doing That Again: Size Five Unkill The Swindle

The Swindle is dead, long live The Swindle. This Steampunk heist game was what Size Five Games planned on doing in lieu of another Ben & Dan / Time Gentlemen, Please point and click adventure, but lead dev Dan Marshall wound up quasi-cancelling it when he couldn't find the fun, to borrow a line from Blizzard. Given that he'd also axed third Ben & Dan…

Ben But No Dan: The Often-Ending Story

"When's the new Ben & Dan game coming?" the crowd throbbing around Dan Marshall pleads. Something about the way his shirt is always unbuttoned, inevitably one button beyond appropriate, makes people assume he's in control. "You know, Son of Ben & Dan, or Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican, or whatever it is, when oh when oh where oh why?" You don't need Dan. You probably…

Feature: Or 'why Windows 8 meant starting over from scratch'

Whatever Happened To The Swindle?

The Swindle was the much-anticipated next game from Time Gentlemen, Please and Privates dev Size Five Games. Then things went quiet. Very, very quiet. But why? Wha'happened? Will we ever get to play this cyberpunk crime caper? Here, Size Five's Dan Marshall reveals for the first time why the game went dark - a sad tale of Windows 8-based potential doom, leading to a Summer…

Juiced And Spruced: Making Better Games

Indiegames notice that Crayon Physics Deluxe developer Petri Purho and Martin Jonasson, creator of Jesus vs Dinosaurs, talked about tweening and juiciness at the Nordic Game Indie Night 2012. What's your favourite sort of juice? Orange or mango maybe? Or more likely it's jaunty music, uncannily large eyes that blink on impact with projectiles, and a little bit of delay and wobble. Confused? All is…

Indie Royale’s Difficult Second Bundle Is On

The second Indie Royale bundle has this second gone live. You'll remember the first one from Adam telling you all about it. It's the excitingly confusing system where the price goes up over time, but people paying more than that price cause it to go down. I think. Whatever it is, it works, and tens of thousands of people bought the first one, getting a…

Size 5 “Probably” Making New Ben & Dan

Despite cancelling third Ben and Dan game Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican, Size Five Games (formerly Zombie Cow) have begun design-drafting a new adventure starring their foul-minded/mouthed point'n'click avatars. Or, at least, they've gone down the pub and brainstormed and even made a bunch of ideas and puzzles, ending up with something which might just turn into a full game. The Swindle remains project no.1,…

Before Time: Size Five’s Gibbage Goes Free

Attention, fans of games made by a studio that used to be called Zombie Cow but is now called Size Five Games. The makers of Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentlemen, Please have released their first ever game Gibbage, a shooty platformer with a particularly neat two player mode, for free. But only for the duration of this weekend. What that means is that…

Zombie Cow Is Dead: It’s Size Five Games

In a rather peculiar move, Zombie Cow - the indie developers behind the brilliant Ben There, Dan That, and Time Gentlemen, Please - have changed their name. No longer are they post-bovine, and have now become Size Five Games. Why? I'm not sure even they know why. Something about "Zombie Cow" being embarrassing to say in business situations. Well, I recommend trying to be "Rock,…

Today’s MW2 Mass Sigh: 18 Max Multiplayer

You know the scene in the Hobbit where they arrive at Beorn's house? Rather than the whole mass of 'em going in at once, they just send a couple in first, and then gradually reveal exactly how many dwarves are going to be scoffing his honeycakes. The idea being, that he'd tell them to sling their hook if they all marched in at once. Since…

Time Gentlemen, Please! Arrives On Steam

Just a quick one to say, one of our favourite games of the year is now up on Steam. Time Gentlemen, Please! can now be bought worldwide at £3, $5 and 4€ via Valve's pipe. Zombie Cow have smartly bundled it with the first game in the series, Ben There, Dan That!, so you can play through both fantastic adventures super-easily. Read Alec's review here…

Time Gentlemen, Please: Half Price For You Lot

The handsome men (man, really) of Zombie Cow have decided that fiftyish Rock, Paper, Shotgun readers should have the chance to purchase a copy of the most splendid Time Gentlemen, Please for half price. It's not a competition, just a first come, first served sort of deal (our lovely subscribers got first dibs on the first round of discount copies yesterday), so if you're after…

Adventures With Hitler: Zombie Cow Interview

The really very splendid Time Gentlemen, Please!, from indie developers Zombie Cow, has already seen Alec pronounce its glories in beautiful form. An genuinely hilarious game (oh, how woefully that word is applied to any game that isn't actively about the gruesome death of children - here it's used correctly), it deserves a lot of attention. So does the creator, one half of Zombie Cow,…

Time Gentlemen, Please: Point’n’Click Sequel Joy

The Hivemind will doubtless cast its mucus-oozing multi-eye towards this for more detailed discussion soon, but until then do allow me to quickly point out that Time Gentlemen, Please!!!?!!!?!, the sequel to the out-of-the-blue loveliness of Ben There, Dan That!!!?!!!?!, is now available. I'm mostly writing to this to deter yet more people from emailing us about it: most kind, but we do know, honest.…
