Unknown Pleasures: Eliminate the competition

Oh, I see how it is. I see you, Walker. You're just... you're lucky you're always wrong about everything, mate, or this would get messy very fast. We like competition here in the Pleasuredome, although the thousands of games whose digital innards coat the walls might not. It is time, of course, for the last fight in the Unknown Pleasures schedule before the big one.…

Unknown Pleasures: Whatever a furlong is

There's not long left before the big 20, but those crafty devs continue to release legions of games anyway, surely coveting the grand prize of a spot in the Unknown Pleasures annual finals. Or possibly they want to have enough money to buy food. Who can say? Five more games join the ranks of the worthy today, for it is, once more, time for a…

Unknown Pleasures: The only games we cover

Argh, yes, hello hello, intro intro, words, excuses. Sorry everyone, I've been rather ill and all the game devs selfishly decided to keep releasing their games anyway. Do they not KNOW what HAPPENS to troublemakers in the Unknownatorium? It is, of course, time for a belated Unknown Pleasures, our regular selection of the best under-exposed games on Steam.

Unknown Pleasures: ’tis not the season

There's a coat in a window on my way home and I want it. Or possibly a blazer, I was in a hurry. It is purple and the shop had put a sign saying "VAMPIRE" over it, but I don't need to use the cover of the worst holiday as an excuse. Which reminds me: when did we agree that Halloween was an entire bloody…

Unknown Pleasures: The Incredible Sulk

They're sending me to EGX next week. Playing games is one thing, but talking to people? Talking? With my mouth? The whole point of games is to stay indoors, damn it. I know how it'll go, they'll all be there playing proper games that normal people have heard of, and here's me going "eh um, have you played Bees vs Cops II? It sold almost…

Unknown Pleasures: The only game in the office

The office is eerily empty tonight, as RPS has vanquished another foe, and been locked out in turn by my guerrilla forces. I am alone in the building. There is only me, Candide the rainbow llama, and the endless invisible stream of code I must consume to sustain my terrible power. It is time, my friends, for Unknown Pleasures, our regular delivery of the best…

Unknown Pleasures: recovery position

It's been a tiring week, viewers. Lying on the floor going "uuuugh" all weekend, instead of merely for most of it, was not enough to dispel the curse I placed on myself last Friday. I did not know I was still able to dance for that long and not die. So. I don't know about you, but I've been particularly sedate this week. Which is…

Unknown Pleasures: Find your windmill

Somehow, bank holidays always sneak up on me. You'd think after years of working for councils and universities I'd have figured them out by now, but nope. I remain completely flummoxed by the concept of time this week. What year is it? What are mornings? Why is everything in Britain still open exclusively when you can't bloody get to it? Games, of course, do not…

Unknown Pleasures: The most august

A friend from the midlands once lamented that she'd always lived there. How absurd it was to live on an island, but directly in the middle of it. I can now say, having lived in two coastal cities, that living on the edge of it is very much the same, except that there are much better chip shops and the rain is more ... oceany.…

Unknown Pleasures: Against the odds

There's a drawing of Mario in the office. It's on the wall directly to my left, and whenever I'm plotting something I have to look at it so Matt and Alice don't know I'm scheming against them. I don't even like Mario, but now he's part of the process. That seems weirdly appropriate, because a lot of this week's selection is drawn from genres that…

Unknown Pleasures: The Machine Starts

Week 3. The invasion has failed, but I'm still alive. What cruel fate awaits those of us who assail the walls of Castle Shotgun but are not slain? But they still have to catch us first. In the meantime, I comfort myself by tearing through the endless round up of the best new games on Steam. It is time, it is always time, for Unknown…

Unknown Pleasures: Crossing the Floor

Change! It is as inevitable as it is clichéd. All things must change, from your town and workplace to your bank balance and attitude towards seagulls (they are brilliant). One thing that does not change, however, is the endless deluge of games from Steam, and my place writing Unknown Pleasures. What, you thought because our conquest of Castle Shotgun has begun, we would leave behind…

Unknown Pleasures: access early, access often

Oh, the many things I cannot tell you, readers! They are many, and they are things. One thing I can tell you is that argh, howl, yes, I am indeed working on the enormous pile of hundreds upon hundreds of indie games that are surely aiming to destroy me. The second thing is that it's time once more for the world famous round-up of the…

Unknown Pleasures: Wanderers Edition

Sometimes you don't know what you need until you have it. Lately it turns out I've needed a lot of soothing, which is fortunate because this week's selection of the best indie games on Steam ranks highly on the alleviometer. We've the usual variety you've surely come to expect, and a bit less of the drama and thrills than average. It is time, once more,…

Unknown Pleasures: Adventurer Time

Happy New Freelance Year! The receipt-flakes are falling, the accountants are singing their carols, and in every house the children are leaving out tripwires and caltrops to delay the inevitable march of the merciless Father Taxmas. Did you have a good time at Rezzed? I didn't go - humans, right? - but that's fine because we clever ones, we get all the good footage without…

Unknown Pleasures: It’s a Mystery

Oooh, we've got a bit of a "mystery" theme. Between slow burning stories and the rare survival of a... ah, survival game, this week's selection of Unknown Pleasures is leaving me thoroughly unresolved. Leaving a trail of gross keyboard crumbs this week: space friends, snow lesbians, and evil geometry.

Unknown Pleasures: a fully phlegmatic rifle

It is the season for what the hell is going on out there? Do I plant my garden now? Are we going back to normal late-winter murderfrost or what? Lord, we're all doomed. If I didn't have a cold I'd have no tether to normality at all. Unknown Pleasures is, you may be aware, our round up of the best indie games on Steam that,…

Unknown Pleasures: A Winter’s Quail

I have cancelled February. Today, and tomorrow, and most of the next two weeks, do not exist. It has been that kind of month, and I don't think I'm the only one. Please purge responsibly, everyone. Don't guillotine anything I wouldn't guillotine. Unknown Pleasures is running a little behind, not least because there were a truly ridiculous number of games to get through earlier this…

Unknown Pleasures: The Gang of Five

I need a break, readers. I am theoretically planning out my year, but I've been planning the plans instead and oh lord how does a life this boring have so much stuff in it? It's a coincidence, but this week's Unknown Pleasures, our round-up of the best indie games recently released on Steam, is a mostly low-intensity batch, with minimal planning required, so join me!…

Unknown Pleasures: A Chinese New Year

Strange things are afoot in steamgamesland. A powerful new force has begun to show its face on Western shores. Hailing from the tiny island nation of China, a wave of intrepid indie developers are shaking off a variety of undeserved reputations and delivering a solid fifth* of the shortlist of games we consider for Unknown Pleasures, the roundup of the best new games too few…
