Feature: A plethora of games to scratch that same Minecraft itch

Games like Minecraft – 16 best games like Minecraft from the past ten years

There have been a great many games like Minecraft over the past decade. Which is to be expected, because who wouldn't want to capitalise on the runaway mainstream success of the decade, and the best-selling video game of all time? There are many things that are very special about Minecraft, and remain more or less unmatched even ten years later; but we've done our very…

In Carrion you play a horrible bag of meaty tendrils

“What’s it called in movies,” I asked my collegues this evening, “when a scientist sees a big alien or a monster, and all they can do is say how beautiful it is before they are eaten to bits?” “That’s admiring the abomination,” explained Adam. Well, you see this disgusting crimson abomination of bloody tendrils in monster videogame Carrion? I admire it.

Soldat dev’s Butcher adds easy mode, only if you want

Soldat studio Transhuman Design advertised their new run 'n' gun platformer Butcher [official site] with the tagline "The easiest mode is 'HARD'!" It's pretty hard, y'see.

Well…

Paint The Walls With Blood In Butcher Next Week

The 2D shooter Butcher [official site] has its very own release date now, so we can stop talking about how it'll eventually float down here at "some point." It's scheduled to rip into Steam on 5 October, meaning in a few days you too can be blowing through enemies in a pixelated fit of rage. It also has a cool name that makes me really miss my…

Butcher: Ultraviolent Prototype From Makers Of Soldat

I can think of lots of reasons why shotgunning your way through some 2D pixels might turn your day around, but whatever the cause I recommend Butcher. It's a three-level prototype of an ultraviolent run-and-gun platformer from the makers of Soldat and King Arthur's Gold. You can play it in your browser now and it is distracting me from the neighbours drilling, sawing, sanding and…

Rain, Pain And A Soul Train: Transmigration

News about games reaches me in many forms. Sometimes it's a personal email from a developer, a conversation with a friend or another website's reporting, but more often it's a press release. They're often coldly efficient, those press releases, listing a stack of genres, throwing buzzwords at the wall and hoping that at least a couple will stick. Not always, but often. This afternoon I…

Feature: A beautiful castle

King Arthur’s Gold review

King Arthur’s Gold has been knocking about for years, quietly existing in the shadow of similar games like Terraria, Minecraft and Ace of Spades. In that time the creators (those who brought you Soldat) have been chipping away and sculpting an unassuming yet heroic little game of insane siege warfare. Now that it has taken its complete form and has been deemed beautiful enough for…

Knight Here, Knight Now: King Arthur’s Gold

It was 2011 when RPS took its first and only look at King Arthur's Gold, a 2D multiplayer action game from the makers of Soldat that's been inspired by Minecraft, Age of Empires, and TF2. It remained in alpha (Alphurian?) for all the time in between. That time was well spent: new graphics have been chiseled out, and there's now mod support. Merlin waved his…
