  • Random Universe Generator: Nested Is The Best Thing

    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 15 readers

    I found Nested last night, led to it by a Quinns’ Tweet. Nested is a game/toy/program that generates infinite universes, nested inside one another, and filled with the physical elements of reality. At first I didn’t understand. Sure, this kind of thing is neat, but I’m not particularly excited about the chemical structure of an opaline interstellar cloud.

  • The Escapists Is Out On Early Release

    …When it comes to prison games on Early Access, few are going to compete with Prison Architect. However, The Escapists approaches the concept from the other side. Here, you’re the prisoner, and you’re trying to escape. It’s out on Early Access now – I’ve written some (jail) sentences about it below. … [visit site to read more…

  • Custom Space-Crud: Habitat Adding Mod Support

    …Our Alec had a fair bit of fun (with a few reservations) when he pootled around space in a ship built from burger bars, buses, T. rex heads, and rockets with Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit. But as wacky as ships can be in the spaceborne RTS now, they’re nothing compared to what the Internet will surely add. As Habitat moves through Early…

  • Rules For Games: Do & Don’t #8

    …The latest collection of court-mandated rules for games and games developers have been issued from the Authority. Who is me. And if you want things to go smoothly, you’ll follow my instructions. Call the police, and I start killing hostages. So nice and slowly, put down your weapons and obey me. And obey the first fifty rules too. … [visit site…

  • The RPS Bargain Bucket: Arachnophobia

    … Guys, I have a confession. I spent so much of last week being excited about creating silly YouTube videos (which you can watch here, if you missed it the first time) that I completely forgot to tell you this: someone is making a Horace plushie. Not because we asked her to. Not because it was sanctioned by the editorial overlords. But, because…

  • Why Did You Give Me This? Steam Can Now Hide Games

    … Valve released a new Steam client update yesterday. It doesn’t add anything big or fancy. It probably doesn’t conceal an ARG announcing Half-Life 3. What it does do is fix several small things–small things which have been irritating many for so very long. For starters, that horrible slow embedded web browser has been updated to a newer, faster…

  • Week in Tech: Intel Shrinks Desktop Apathy Down To 14nm

    … Spool up the apathy drive and buckle in for yet another family of unexciting new CPUs from Intel. The 14nm Broadwell generation is nearly upon us and Intel has begun the slow drip feed of info about a CPU hardly anyone will notice or care about in desktop PCs. It’ll be a while yet before we get full speeds and feeds. But we already know enough…

  • The Risen 3 Report, Day 2: Voodoo Matt Berry

    …The good news is that I do now have Risen 3 working on my games PC, and I only had to disable half of the cores in my processor to do it. The bad news is that the events of this second part of the diary were played on crappy laptop integrated graphics before I’d found the fix, so the ugly screenshots will once again destroy your will to live. All…

  • The Risen 3 Report, Day 1: Boobpirate vs Hulk Chicken

    … Editor’s wibble – I’d hoped to have a full Wot I Think of Risen 3: Titan Lords, Piranha Bytes’ latest openish world RPG by now, but sadly code has been incompatible with my PC. I have been able to play it in short bursts on a laptop with lousy integrated graphics, but there was only so much low-detail 20FPS play I could stand before needing…

  • Week in Tech: MMOuse, Shield, Superwide Is Super Cool

    … Not being hugely of the MMO persuasion, the extent to which fixed-configuration mice generate significant anguish is, to coin a Tuckerism, beyond my jaunty-bonneted purview. However, the fellows at ROCCAT are apparently feeling someone’s pain and the result is the new Nyth, a modular mouse for MMOists that comes complete with 3D-printing…

  • Wot I Think: The Sun At Night

    … The Sun At Night is an action platformer with a touch of Metroidvania to it, starring Laika, the first dog in space. Who now talks, fires guns and cheekily reads people’s letters. It’s out now, developed by Minicore Studios. Double-jumping robo-dog with a spine-mounted deathray and commentary on the horrors of war? The Sun at Night aims…
