As Old Father Time grabs his sickle and prepares to take ailing 2016 around the back of the barn for a big sleep, we’re looking to the future. The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.

Welcome to the final part of my series in which I make my first-ever game. I m using the lovely PICO-8 [official site], and the game is called No Frog Left Behind. It s about abducting frogs by pushing them into your spaceship, and it s time to design its levels. … [visit site to read more]

A week of rich confectionery, cold turkey and fortified wine can do terrible things to an organic CPU. An hour or two in the company of the following three puzzles may not repair all> the damage, but it should leave you fit enough to take on simple tasks like deciphering the Voynich manuscript, discovering the whereabouts of El Dorado, and completing an HMRC self assessment tax return. … [visit site to read more]

This is the fourth part of my diary about making my first-ever game, using PICO-8 [official site].

Since No Frog Left Behind now has a frog and a player moving on lily pads, it s finally time to implement the game s core mechanic, the ability to push the frog across the map with a bullet. Because this is a game about pushing frogs into boxes. … [visit site to read more]

One of my favourite things about end of year lists on RPS is they never match the personal list of any individual writer. They’re a compromise between us all, an erratic, uncoordinated vote where consensus sees games of real worth rising to the top and filling our annual advent calendar. It makes for a list that’s far more broad and useful to the largest number of readers. And because it’s driven by nothing other than what we’ve all enjoyed that year is equally likely to be filled with the tripliest of As and the most obscure of indies. Still though, it leaves me wanting to say, “But! But there are THESE games too!” So below is my list of >my favourite games of 2016, far less useful to far fewer readers, but goodness me, a collection of games that deserve adulation.> … [visit site to read more]

This is the third part of my diary about making my first-ever game, using PICO-8 [official site]. So No Frog Left Behind now has a map and you can move the player around. But I m now on my third big session on it and I ve got a long way to go before there s any kind of game there.

Key to getting an actual game running is working out when things collide, like players with impassable water and frogs with bullets, and frogs with boxes. For this is a game about pushing frogs into boxes with bullets. And collision is my Agincourt. … [visit site to read more]
