at the gates

Jon Shafer and Paradox s recent break up was sad news, even though we never found out what the Civilization 5 designer was working on, but if there s a silver lining, it s that he s now able to invest more time into his Kickstarted 4X game: At The Gates. Yesterday, Shafer posted the first update since May, revealing a slight change in direction and promising more consistent updates.

SUPERHOT - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alec Meer)

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.>

Here’s the point where I usually say “so VR didn’t pan out like we’d hoped, eh?” and then people who really like VR go “hey, stop that!”. So this time, I won’t, and instead will say: here’s a really, really cool VR game. SUPERHOT VR. (more…)

Boared game

Yonder strategy Northgard has added a new clan to its longboat full of cartoonish Viking pillagers. Previous clans like the bear boys, introduced new warriors like a giant ursine killer with heavy armour plating on his furry back. The new clan of the Boar are a little less spectacular, but they are a hard-living and resistant lot. On top of this, developers Shiro Games have laid out a plan for future updates, including a single player campaign and better enemy AI. (more…)

Can you hear the people click? Clicking the song of angry men? The Clicker Heroes devs couldn’t, but they’re nonetheless changing their business model so that the studio can have a “cleaner conscience”. Clicker Heroes 2, the sequel to the idle game that Graham describes as “Diablo s metagame with the participative act of exploration and combat removed”, will have an upfront cost of $29.99 rather than in-game purchases.

Another Final Fantasy outing is heading to PC today, this time in the form of the painfully adorable World of Final Fantasy, which launched on Sony s consoles just over a year ago. It s a spin-off that celebrates the long-running JRPG series by turning its myriad characters and beasties into tiny chibi summons that the player can carry in their pocket and bring out during battles.

I don't like those odds

There’s a lot of sci-fi silliness of 2000:1: A Space Felony Or How I Came To Value My Life And Murder Mercilessly. It’s pretty much guaranteed when you look at the name. Not only is it uncomfortably long, it also provides more colons than I care to have. That sense of comical overwriting is a big part of the game – a first-person investigation on a space station with four corpses and one shifty AI. This week it’s free for Thanksgiving, say developers National Insecurities. (more…)
