• A Game About Spanking. Consensual Spanking.

      Hurt Me Plenty is a game about spanking. Consensual adult spanking, not debatably-traumatic-for-small-children spanking. It aims to do one thing games are notoriously terrible at: be sexy. (Warning: might be mildly NSFW, though not really.) The free game, as you may have surmised by now, is about spanking dudes.

    • Sim City 2000 Is 20 Years Old And Free

      By John Walker on December 10th, 2014 at 12:00 pm. Last year’s SimCity was, in the end, pretty average. Its launch and the outright bullshit that EA span around it was a disaster, but the game was simply a quite disappointing entry in a formerly brilliant series. And I’d argue it was never any more brilliant than in Sim City 2000.

One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. “An endless stream of game recommendations,” says whoever wrote that intro when we started this. This, however, is a more literal question: have you played Skeal? Because I’d like to talk about it or maybe ...

  • Ghost Run In Pac Man: The 8 Pages

    … By Philippa Warr on December 19th, 2014 at 12:00 pm. As someone trying to overcome a fear of horror games I downloaded Pac Man: The 8 Pages. It’s a riff on Slender: The Eight Pages, a game which scared me so badly I could only play it in broad daylight while eating a nice sandwich and STILL managed to drop my mouse out of sheer terror. What…
