    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 7 readers

    By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on October 21st, 2014 at 11:00 am. I have apparently escaped from the Organaut Inquisition, emerged from the Transdimensional Meat Escalator and into a hellish and absurd glitch RPG: Hellscapes 7-8. I’m nothing more than a Salary Man with an esoteric rifle, an urge to survive and a demented determination to explore.

    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 8 readers

    By Philippa Warr on October 9th, 2014 at 6:00 pm. Today I have spent part of my morning as a teenaged Spanish boy who has St Anthony thrust upon him as his psychotherapist. Or, to put it another way, I’m playing episode zero of CAVE! CAVE! DEUS VIDET* – a game based on the work of Hieronymous Bosch.

  • Freeware Garden: Mimicry Man

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 8 readers - By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on October 6th, 2014 at 11:00 am. There exists an obscure and dangerous creature all but the staunchest adventures have grown to fear. A monster so devilish in its understanding of a hero’s soul it’s virtually invincible. A mimic. Mimicry Man is a scientifically accurate simulation of the life of the average beastie of the sort.
  • Freeware Garden: The Running Dead

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 6 readers - By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on October 7th, 2014 at 11:00 am. The Running Dead is Rick Dangerous turned into an (essentially) endless runner. With zombies. And though I still have traumatic memories of both Rick games and never really understood what the fuss with Canabalt was all about, I am deeply enjoying it. Yes, despite also being mortally bored of zombies.

    … By Alice O'Connor on October 24th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. It seems grossly unprofessional to open a post with a huge chunk of a game’s marketing fluff but: FROGGY is the legendary froggame that forever changed frogtelling in the frogindustry with its groundbreaking narrative.

  • Freeware Garden: Line Crossing

    … By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on October 24th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Afra, the wonderfully pixelated protagonist of Line Crossing, has found herself on a mysterious train.

  • Hit After Kickstarter Backing So It Can Be Free

    … posters, in-game decorations, and the rather nice idea of 8-pack bundles to distribute amongst the friends you’d like to play with/against. Throw down big money and there are physical treats, art books, and even customised characters in the game. I especially like to see a Kickstarter that requires funders to be philanthropic, rather than speculatively pre-ordering. They could also use votes on Greenlight to see the project working out. Here’s the full trailer: And here’s the song now going around in my head: …

  • Have You Played… Notrium?

    … By Adam Smith on October 22nd, 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. The RPS archives don’t contain a single post dedicated to Notrium and Survival Week is the perfect time to remedy that. Mod-friendly, free to download and rocking a randomised…

  • Retro DayZ: DoomZ Alpha Impressions

    … everything Doom is, and I can feel my mind straining to adapt to something I know so well changing so much. The silent starkness of DoomZ means that the statement “night is coming”, in its old-fashioned and jagged-edged font, somehow holds that much more terror than DayZ’s. And never mind that this means the horde is on the prowl – there was a day…
