FMV mystery The Shapeshifting Detective infiltrates stores today

A good sleuth has a recognisable face. A great one has dozens according to The Shapeshifting Detective, an FMV murder mystery game¬†released yesterday by D'Avekki Studio. A young woman has been murdered, and there are few faster ways to get to the truth than to be all of the suspects at the same time. As the title suggests, the player has the ability to supernaturally…

Full motion crimes: FMV game Late Shift announced

The modern FMV revival might well have peaked with the charming camp comedy of Roundabout but I'm still interested to see what developers do with this odd '90s artform. Following Her Story, Contradiction, Quantum Break, and The Bunker, among others, Late Shift [official site] is coming in April. It's an interactive movie about a lad caught up in London underworld antics around a heist, shaping…

Feature: Bunkum

The Bunker review

Somewhere there exists a line that marks the point where FMV releases switch between clicking on a film to make it keep playing, and being a meaningful game. The Bunker [official site] is way, way over to the left of that line - it can barely be bothered to ask you to click. Here's wot I think:

FMV Horror-Adventure The Bunker Released

When they first appeared in the skies, you knew what to do. While your family stood in the streets watching the flocks of winged toasters, you ran. When the ground shook to a latin beat, you dug your nails into your palms fighting urges to raise your right arm, your left, flip right hand flip left, to shoulder to shoulder, to head to head, to…

Long Dark Teatime Of The: Soul Axiom In Early Access

Soul Axiom [official site] doesn't mess about. Hitting "New Game" immediately tosses you into the nameless, faceless¬†shoes of a character falling through a clouded seeming-infinity. After a few moments of lightning illuminating huge, vaguely humonoid shapes, you land face first on a boat floating through the air, and thus the Early Access puzzleventure and first person weird-goings-on-'em-up begins. Its spooky cyberspace heart is very much…

Faster Than A Silver Bullet: Infinity Runner

What a strange screenshot. I thought Infinity Runner was a game about hubris. Humans, over-reaching as ever, build a spaceship so big that it falls over. The player character is a prisoner who must escape from the ship, fleeing in first-person, dodging security systems and enemies while leaping and performing funky futuristic parkour. That all sounds good. I was wrong about the hubris bit though.…

Forever Run: Infinity Runner Passes The Post In June

Doddering old fools that we are, sometimes here at RPS we miss games when they're announced. Perhaps we were busy shouting at the television, or simply enjoying a nap to escape the bright afternoon light. That's okay. First-person sprinters are always of interest, no matter how late we come across them. Master Reboot developers Wales Interactive last month announced Infinity Runner, a run 'em up…

All Is Not Well In The Digital Afterlife: Master Reboot

As much as E3 can generate that sad feeling in your socks, it's important to remember that our world of gaming is FAR bigger and more interesting than that awful corporate circlejerk. And what better example to land before my eyes than Sarah Crossman's Master Reboot. From concept to art style to the wonderful trailer, it's a breath of fresh, creepy air. Created with the…
