Little Inferno devs reveal ‘incredible road trip’ adventure Welcome To The Information Superhighway

Tomorrow Corporation, them folks behind Little Inferno and the upcoming 7 Billion Humans, and whose staff have the likes of World of Goo, assorted EA things and Henry Hatsworth on their storied CVs, are at it again. 'It' tends to mean playfully exploring the outer boundaries of what makes a game a game, but apparently their upcoming Welcome To The Information Superhighway "is shaping up…

The 20 best non-violent games on PC

My nerves have been sufficiently jangled and my trigger-finger sufficiently itched by the glut of action games which landed in the closing months of last year. I crave an altogether more sedate beginning to 2018, and so my mind turns to games in which violence, reflex or any other kind of unblinking attentiveness takes a back seat. Primarily we're talking violence-free games here, but I…

Have You Played… World Of Goo?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It is literally impossible that World Of Goo is from SEVEN YEARS AGO. That absolutely, categorically cannot be the case. There has simply been a malfunction in chronology. We had that world exclusive review maybe three years ago at most.

!: Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Seven Year Humble Bundle

We're seven years old! (Actually, we were seven years old last month, but we've never been much for punctuality.) And so by way of celebration we've curated the latest weekly Humble Bundle, and that means we've chosen some of our most beloved indie games from the past seven years for the Pay What You Want sale. An esoteric bunch, but so very beautiful, all. If…

Steam Summer Sale Redux: All Of The Indies

Welp, I guess that's it, then. We can't escape it. The Steam Summer Sale's returned, but honestly, can you remember a single moment before it began? Was there ever a moment before it began? Maybe we're trapped in some infinite, Groundhog-Day-style loop of spending, obligation, and guilt. Maybe we'll never escape. Maybe this is the least threatening eternal hell loop ever conceived. But oh well, because…

Juiced And Spruced: Making Better Games

Indiegames notice that Crayon Physics Deluxe developer Petri Purho and Martin Jonasson, creator of Jesus vs Dinosaurs, talked about tweening and juiciness at the Nordic Game Indie Night 2012. What's your favourite sort of juice? Orange or mango maybe? Or more likely it's jaunty music, uncannily large eyes that blink on impact with projectiles, and a little bit of delay and wobble. Confused? All is…

The Slightly More Humble Than Usual Bundle

...Which I don't say to demean the fine contents of the latest Humble offering, but simply because there are slightly fewer games than usual, plus it's primarily an Android phone offering, albeit with PC/smug expensive PC/beardy defensive PC versions of the contents also available. Which is, of course, why I'm posting it. They're calling it the most cross-platformish bundle they've even done. Contents this time…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 2/5

Yesterday, as you may have noted, Dr Rossignol began our lecture series on the most important PC games of all time. Much like The Christmas Lectures, The Reith Lectures, and the TED Lectures, this definitive series has been a part of our institution as long as the Earth has borne stones. In this second part Professor John Walker explains the varying importanceness of a second…

World Of Goo: The Hat

Indie games and hats: two things which are very much RPS' bread and butter, yet never the twain shall meet, which seems an oversight. David Lien wants to change all that. He plans to create an indie merchandising business, and as such has already snagged the blessings of the goodly gentlemen of 2D Boy to make these semi-official World of Goo hats. Hats! But what…

Transference: Spoon Gives Goo In A Browser

Azazel was nosing at Spoon in a professional capacity, but thought it worth mention because of its gamey-aspects. "It appears to do some virtualization jiggery-pokery which can stream apps to any Windows desktop via a browser," says he. To which I replied "MOTHERSHIPS!" and he looked at me with the disappointed gaze I've learned to suffer. If you want to get the plug-in, it's here…

Humble Indie Bundle Makes Bundle

Perhaps you need to hear some good news. Here's some now. You might remember we told you about the Humble Indie Bundle. (We really did. Could people maybe stop emailing us about it now? Please?) You can get World of Goo, Aquaria, Lugaru, Gish and Penumbra Overture, DRM free, for whatever price you choose. It's $80 worth, at the price of your choosing. And now…

Mega-Philanthropy: Humble Indie Bundle

Media reportage still has it that Radiohead's pay-what-you-want experiment a couple of years back was somehow a disaster. Independent gaming has roundly proved the lie: more devs than we can keep up with have offered PWYW deals recently, so clearly something's going right. It's good news for gamers too. The Humble Indie Bundle, though, is yer bona fide motherlode. World of Goo, Aquaria, Lugaru, Gish…

World Of Goo Sale Offers Fascinating Results

As expected, 2D BOY have published details of their World Of Goo First Birthday experiment. Offering the game for whatever price people wanted to pay (previously it was $20), this meant people could get a copy for as little as $0.01 or as much as fifty million squillion space dollars. (I believe that's the upper limit.) Originally this was intended to last for a week,…

Sticky Fingers: Complete World of Goo Piano Score

Okay, we've done the World of Goo Soundtrack before, but this is something else. Imagine if all electricity just disappeared and we were reduced to a feudal state. How would you bring back memories of that most glorious goo-featuring game? Well, you'd gather around the piano and have someone play its music. But how would they know it? That had me stumped too, until I…

Weekend Sale: World of Goo Cheap. UT3 Black Free.

If any reader of any website is likely to have World of Goo, you have to suspect RPS readers are. We did the first review! We never shut up about it! However if for some reason you don't, Steam are selling it for 75% off this weekend. That's just over four quid. Go get it. If you're feeling even four-quid skint, also over at Steam,…

Primordial Ooze: World Of Goo Prototype

2D BOY are offering a really interesting glimpse into the process World of Goo went through, on its way to become the cuddly bundle of ludicrous loveliness that made us crack our ears with smiling last year. These will apparently be in seven stages, and the first is available to download from their site today. It's a single room, containing some very primitive goo balls,…
