Anyway, enough of that jibber jabber... Paranautical's Backtivity.

Deluxe Atonement has been achievedeth....

To all the existing PA players, check in your Steam PA folder for some added goodies, I highly recommend the pro guide. Personally, it helped me go from a shit player to pretty average one in a matter of weeks.

Heres how to get there... right click properties > local files > browse local files...

Any problems send a mail to nick@digeratidistribution.com and I will send you the files, most likely by carrier pigeon or morse code. But whatever quirky mid 20th century method I choose to send your digital assets in, rest assured you will receive them within 24 hours of mailing me!

Extra in game content comes in the form of a new level type, a new item & a new goddam weapon god dammit. I sincerely hope you enjoy the game being back on sale as much as I've enjoyed traversing the Paranautical tightrope!

An artist's representation of the threat.

First-person shooter Paranautical Activity has been pulled from Steam after its creator tweeted a death threat about Valve founder Gabe Newell.

Paranautical Activity is in it!
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Craig Pearson)

Tower Of Guns, and Paranautical Activity are fun, single-player shooters that I’ve dropped in and out of a fair bit this year. It’s been a surprise, as I generally don’t enjoy games that are mostly about shooting. Perhaps I am maturing? Or maybe I’m getting less mature. The answer is up for interpretation. Now they’ve been joined by Fancy Skulls, a similarly boxed-in gun game that traps you in randomised levels and gives you one life. I’ve played its beta a fair bit this week, and I keep returning to it in quiet moments when my fingers get itchy. The doctor says it’s a good remedy.

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.
