  • Kentucky Route Pitstop: Here And There Along The Echo

    By Adam Smith on October 30th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Kentucky Route Zero isn’t just gaming’s finest slice of magical realism and shaggy dog symphonies, it’s also a magnificent feat of myth-making. Like so much Americana, it straddles the line between fact and folk tale, and finds recognisable unrealities along the road to the grave.

  • Hot Town: Concrete Jungle Is A Deckbuilding Citybuilder

    By Graham Smith on October 30th, 2014 at 4:00 pm. How much of my love of citybuilding games is simply that I love looking at cities? Clean lines, bustling streets, each block a little ant farms to peer into and lose myself within. Concrete Jungle suggests you can twist the genre in whole new directions and I’ll still follow along.

  • Have You Played… Star Wars: TIE Fighter?

    By Alec Meer on October 30th, 2014 at 3:30 pm. Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. If the answer to the headline question is ‘no’, for many years your only way to change it was either car boot sales or wanton piracy.

  • Been There, Doing That Again: Size Five Unkill The Swindle

    By Alec Meer on October 30th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. The Swindle is dead, long live The Swindle. This Steampunk heist game was what Size Five Games planned on doing in lieu of another Ben & Dan / Time Gentlemen, Please point and click adventure, but lead dev Dan Marshall wound up quasi-cancelling it when he couldn’t find the fun, to borrow a line from Blizzard.

  • Freeware Garden: Psyche E

    By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on October 30th, 2014 at 11:00 am. “I am yourself and you are me. My name is Ego. My penis fell off… help me find it.“ So begins Psyche E. A short, scatological and completely bonkers point-and-click adventure you can download for Windows. A game filled with weird sights and words that beautifully rhyme with rock.

  • Evil Within Your Letterbox? There’s Options For That Now

    By Graham Smith on October 30th, 2014 at 10:00 am. Adam thought The Evil Within was a fine game, but that its letterboxed screen size was a hindrance – a technique that would have been best used sparingly, rather than for the entire length of the game. Rich Stanton thought that the technique was well deployed, increased tension and was never put towards creating cheap jump-scares.

  • Return Of The King Of Dragon Pass: Six Ages

    By Adam Smith on October 30th, 2014 at 8:00 am. We recently published our first ever article about King of Dragon Pass, a feature in praise of the cult favourite tribal management game. If you haven’t read it, you should and if you haven’t played the game, you should probably do that as well. Originally released in 1999, it’s one of the strongest examples of emergent storyte ...

  • Retail Blues: Lamenting The Demise Of Game Stores

    By Jon Morcom on October 29th, 2014 at 10:00 pm. Writer Jon Morcom sent us this elegy for physical game boxes and physical game shops, and its very British, melancholy portrait of the older habits of our hobby was too lovely not to publish. The spidery writing on a sign that’s been stuck to the whitewashed windows of what used to be my local GAME store tells me that the nea ...

  • Wot I Think: Civilization – Beyond Earth

    By Will Wiles on October 29th, 2014 at 7:00 pm. “They should have sent a poet,” says astronaut Jodie Foster, struck dumb by wonder upon encountering alien intelligence at the end of the film Contact. It’s easy to feel the same way about Civilization: Beyond Earth, the latest iteration of Sid Meier’s venerable and mighty Civilization franchise.
