Feature: Eight legs but nowhere to run

Terminating spiders in Kill It With Fire has turned me into a monster

I don’t like spiders. Ever since I watched a documentary on TV about the leggy nasties lurking in the rainforest when I was but a high-pitched, impressionable Ed, I’ve become one of those people who scrambles for a paper and cup when a spider’s lurking about. So yes, arachnids raise my blood pressure. Every now and again I consider getting one of those cowardly spider…

Hello Neighbor 2 coming to PC and Xbox next year

The strange home-invasion simulator, Hello Neighbor, has managed to bag itself a sequel, set to launch next year. From what I know of the first one, you play as a nosy child who will not stop breaking into a man's house, no matter how many creepy things you discover in there. Hello Neighbor 2 is plonking you back in that same neighbourhood, except this time…

TinyBuild unveil Hello Neighbor follow-up Hello Guest with a free alpha

Like the supernatural intruder it loves so much, stealthy successor Hello Guest snuck its way into this weekend's not-E3 proceedings. Taking Hello Neighbor's home invasion out of the suburbs and into the pine-sheltered alcoves of a haunted amusement park, TinyBuild opened the turnstiles to their stealth-horror follow-up with a free alpha beginning this weekend - no tickets required.

Trash Sailors is a co-op raft ride through troubled waters

Like a lad's day out to Margate gone wrong, Trash Sailors will send you and your pals out on a raft to face threats you're woefully unprepared for. Drifting through swamps, between icebergs, and over sunken cities, up to four fools will be trying to dodge obstacles, fend off attackers, gather passing salvage, craft gear, repair holes, and generally not get eaten by crocodiles, robosharks,…

Goofy physics game Totally Reliable Delivery Service arrives today

Silly ragdoll game Totally Reliable Delivery Service is arriving on the (digital) doorstep of anyone who wants it today. It's got the jello-like little humans similar to the goofs of Gang Beasts and Human Fall Flat. Turns out delivering packages efficiently is nigh impossible when you're basically an invertebrate. For its first week in the wild, you can grab Totally Reliable Delivery Service free for…

Feature: We'll do it live

Premature Evaluation: Not For Broadcast

Television, that prehistoric broadcast medium of unrequested shapes and noises spilling out of a furious little box that all your furniture points towards. That wretched hutch where tiny Cilla Black made her nest, where Anneka Rice routinely slipped the surly bonds of earth and a seven inch Matthew Kelly taunted families with all expenses paid trips to Costa Brava, if only dad could identify twenty…

Not For Broadcast is a hectic dystopian TV simulator

I imagine that running the switchboards for a live television show is difficult but I must not have imagined hard enough because Not For Broadcast makes it look even more hectic. The silly dystopian setting of an alternate 1980s is made up of a bunch of fake live action news sequences that remind me of the full-motion game scenes of yore like Tim Curry in…

Feature: The ol' bone orchard

Have you played… Graveyard Keeper?

I have mentioned Graveyard Keeper before because for a few weeks it consumed me -- and every so often it still does. In it, you're hit by a car and wake up as the keeper of a medieval cemetery. It's like a version of Stardew Valley that Noel Fielding would tell you he played to make sure you know he's all goffic and weird.In it…

Feature: Clean and satisfying microbial warfare

Have you played… Boid?

Sometimes, I find a game that doesn't seem like my cup of tea. It's not bad, per se, it's just ostensibly not something I'd be tempted to spend my weekends playing. But then I lay hands on it, and if it feels great, if it's responsive and satisfying and can run a smooth 200 FPS on my laptop... Well, that changes things. Now it doesn't…

Feature: Be a cannibal, eat the rich

RPS Verdict: Streets Of Rogue

Four weeks ago, in the disgusting heat of old August, we told you we can’t stop playing the chaos-fuelled micro-muckabout Streets Of Rogue. And since then we've not stopped banging on about it. It's sort of embarrassing. We spoke to its creator, we praised its tabletop-ish freedom, and we enjoyed having a totally normal one. But listen, we’ve got to move on. It turns out…

Feature: Mix and match (and kill)

Our favourite co-op cocktails for total carnage in Streets Of Rogue

Friends are the worst. One minute they’re stuffing delicious bananas in your mouth to heal your wounds, the next they’re flailing at your head with a police truncheon. But what would life be without some friendly fractures to the skull? In Streets Of Rogue, the anarchic roguelite we can’t stop playing, you can still harm your fellow players in co-op mode. That means lots of…

Feature: How to use a shrink ray on the immersive sim

Streets Of Rogue’s creator on how he stuffed a tiny city with ideas

Streets Of Rogue is a tiny Deus Ex about being stupid. It’s good. If you haven’t heard us shouting about this teeny-yet-turbulent roguelite, then you haven’t been paying attention. To add to the cacophony, I spoke to its creator, Matt Dabrowski, about troublesome bodysnatchers, rampaging giants, vague sequel plans, and how he went about brute-forcing as many silly ideas as possible into a tiny toy…

Feature: Sarcastically, I'm in charge

I turned Streets Of Rogue’s character creator into ‘Fanfic mode’

Streets Of Rogue is a chaotic playground of cunning tricks, slapstick violence, and endless, endless laughter. We've been playing it together muchly here lately, in fact you could say we Can't Stop Playing it.An important feature we've not discussed yet is the custom character creator. This lets you combine the wacky traits and abilities from other characters to make your own little pixel person. It…

Feature: Nothing out of the ordinary here, officer

Having a totally normal one in Streets Of Rogue

Ah, these familiar, everyday streets. It's a comfort that Streets of Rogue’s city and its many mundane simulated districts are so utterly ordinary. You can keep your Farming Simulators and your Solitaires. It's here that videogames truly reflect our simple reality.For example, that time four giant gorillas crushed the entire city into dust.

Can’t Stop Playing: Streets Of Rogue

I hope you like shenanigans. Or at least antics, or capers. Streets Of Rogue is about all those. It’s an anarchic roguelike about ascending a tower block while everything around you erupts in a comedy sci-fi riot. It’s like that Dredd film, but instead of credits as the city’s currency, there are chicken nuggets. It’s also the first game to get our Can’t Stop Playing…

Feature: Apes out

Streets Of Rogue review

The streets are in chaos. There is a police officer beating a slum dweller. A red-shirted gangster has started an ill-advised stabbing match with three members of a rival blue gang. And an ape, recently escaped from captivity, is calmly watching it all, unable to speak the language of these terrible people. Amid such bedlam, what do you do as a player of Streets Of…

Streets Of Rogue emerges from early access in search of a hat

After nearly three years of early access evolution (and the occasional wild mutation), Streets Of Rogue is out now. A real passion project by Matt Dabrowski, it's a roguelite immersive sim -- think Deus Ex demade for SNES, or Mega Drive Shadowrun -- for up to four players, local or online. There's a corrupt mayor to be overthrown (by stealing his hat) in a randomly…

Totally Reliable Delivery Service wobbles awkwardly into open beta

The humble fetch quest - mindless fodder for an MMORPG hero, but a terrifying ordeal for the wobbly balloon people of Totally Reliable Delivery Service. While playable solo or in split-screen for up to four, We're Five Games want to test the networking for their flailing comedy deliver 'em up. That's good for us, as it means we can all try it free. Starting today…

Lovely Planet 2 is a sequel to the fast-flinging FPS

Lovely Planet 2: April Skies appears to follow closely in the footsteps of its predecessor. Both original and sequel are “first person shooter gun ballets” that combine colourful-cute graphics with bounce-o-dodge platforming and lots of shooting. Replay for faster times, to find secrets you missed, or in new game plus mode for more difficult challenges. Here’s a trailer showing off the combination of cheery art…
