David Lynch Teaches Typing is very, yrev good

Rhino Stew Productions' delightful free game David Lynch Teaches Typing doesn't necessarily require a working knowledge of the ways and tropes of America's favourite avant-garde film-maker or of Mavis Beacon's iron rule over 90s typing tuition programs, but it's a doozy if you do. I will say that the impersonation of FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole's distinctive barked but super-positive speech patterns is riotously on-point,…

Feature: Listen to our demands

Podcast: What we want from PC gaming in 2018

BAM. A sound captures your headphones and holds you hostage. It's the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. We've been lying in wait for the past three weeks, consolidating our strength and preparing to kidnap you by the ear canals. "Listen up, 2018!" we shout out from atop this metaphor. "We have a list of demands and we're not releasing this poor listener until you've…

Feature: Get that David Lynch vibe

The games that channel Twin Peaks

This article was originally written before the new Twin Peaks series started, and was exclusive to the RPS Supporter Program. Twin Peaks is back and I'm just about as excited about that as I've ever been about anything in the world of television or cinema. It's not Twin Peaks in particular that I crave, though when it was good it was very very good, it's…

Do The Twin Peaks Twist In Fire Dance With Me

What if David Lynch made a video game? As a fan of the artist, I've listened to his music, heard him talk, looked at his paintings, studied his quinoa technique, and examined his plans for a bungalow, yet I honestly couldn't say. I do, however, feel confident telling you that it would probably not be like Fire Dance With Me [official site]. Fire Dance With…

A Mysterious State Of Mind: Virginia Interview

Virginia set up camp in our collective consciousness the moment we saw its stylish agents and what looked like a small town diner. Inspired by Twin Peaks, The Outer Limits and The X-Files, it's a game about the investigation into a missing person case in one of America's first States. This is an America in touch with its fictional history as well as its actual…

Damn Fine! Twin Peaks-ish, X-Files-y Virginia Announced

Virginia was made for me, you need to understand. Other '90s weird kids might feel that too, but it's for me. A weird first-person "interactive drama" with low-fi untextured polygons and a period story inspired by Twin Peaks and The X-Files? It couldn't be for anyone else. Two FBI agents (two non-white ladies, unless I'm mistaken) investigating a missing child in a small town where…

Who Pixelled Laura Palmer? Twin Peaks 8-Bit

I do not wish to spoil any of this game's mystery - or, indeed, frustration - so I will simply observe that Jak Locke's vintage Atari-aping indie Twin Peaks game Black Lodge 2600 does a damn fine job of being as haunting, bewildering and maddening as its legendary source material. I shall also quote from the manual (which you must read if you are to…
