Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.>
Teleglitch [official site] is one of the most difficult games I’ve ever played and it might also be one of the best. It plays out like a top-down Doom if Doom were about a terrified survivor of the Phobos incident rather than a rugged space marine.
Below you will find the 25 best horror games ever released on PC. To ensure the list was as accurate as possible, the compiler was locked in a dark cellar with a copy of every game in existence and a computer capable of running them all. Two weeks later, the following article was found written on the walls in blood (the postscript was recorded on an audiolog). The writer was nowhere to be seen.
Very good Quakelike roguelike Teleglitch: Die More Edition is currently free on Humble Bundle, the only price of entry being your email address (you can untick to subscribe from the Humble newsletter). That would be worthy of a news post all on its own, but it's accompanied by another great indie bundle (sorry, inDIE bundle—it's Halloween), which contains OlliOlli, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and Tower of Guns at its base, pay-anything level. By beating the average, you also get Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, four copies of Risk of Rain, and Jazzpunk, which we scored 92% back in February.
More games will be added to the Beat the Average tier in the near future, but if you fork out $12 or more you'll get a copy of Shadowrun Returns (the original, not its improved, now standalone sequel) thrown in too.
It's not clear how long Teleglitch will be available for free for, but the terms state that you have to redeem the game key by the 25th of November, so get on it if you like the look of the game. Phil liked 84% of it when he wrote our review last year.
While the main Humble Bundle is diverting itself from gaming with a really quite splendid collection of audiobooks, it seems to have snuck out one of the best collections of games so far in its Weekly Bundle. Rather than showcasing games from one studio, this week it’s a collection of Roguelikes. (Everyone who wants to have a fight about the terminology, please do so here.) That’s Paranautical Activity, Dungeons Of Dredmor Complete, Hack Slash Loot, The Binding Of Isaac + DLC, Teleglitch Die More Edition, and Sword Of The Stars: The Pit Gold. Cor.
Masterful top-down shooter Teleglitch – which is appalling difficult, and one of my favourite games of the year (or last year, really) – has a DLC, and it’s called Guns And Tunes. This is fairly self explanatory: new music to score your inevitable death, and some new guns. There will be right more monster-mincing tools, and you’ll even be able to select which of them you want to start the game with, or choose to have them randomised for you at the outset. The DLC costs £0.99.
