Hybrid VR puzzle-platformer Carly & The Reaperman out

Ever since I got to play around with a Vive headset last year, I’ve been setting aside money for a VR setup of my own, along with a list of games I want to play on it. Carly and the Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld by Swedish indie outfit Odd Raven Studios launched today, and just from […]

How Far: Lone Sails puts you on a journey through sound

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the difficult journeys they’ve taken to make their games. This time, Far: Lone Sails [official site]. It’s there when you first start the engine, in the hiss of steam as you press the ignition button and the rumble as the great wheels begin to […]

Ronimo announce Swords & Soldiers 2, give away the 1st

It’s quickly becoming A Thing in some circles that when you announce a sequel, you just throw the original at people for free. That’s definitely what Awesomenauts studio  Ronimo are doing today. Alongside the announcement a PC launch (it’s been out on consoles for yonks) for silly side-scrolling strategy game Swords & Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon, […]

Plunkbat is getting a premium Battle Pass system now

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a new time-limited progression system where you level up a pass by playing the game, netting yourself rewards as you… hang on a moment. Didn’t I just write this? Though they’re quite similar, there are some differences between the passes. Plunkbat’s ‘Event Pass’, for instance, is way more insistent about getting […]

Razer Naga Trinity review: Three gaming mice in one

I’ll admit to doing a bit of a double-take when I saw how much the Razer Naga Trinity goes for these days. £100 / $90? On your bike, lad. But then I realised the Naga Trinity isn’t really just a single mouse. With its trio of interchangeable side plates, this is three mice in one, […]

Mojang’s Scrolls returns as Caller’s Bane, completely free

A multiplayer game shutting down is always a sad thing. No matter how small the community behind it, there was a community, and undoubtedly someone is going to lose their favourite game or – worse still – their favourite buddy online. As such, it brings a smile to my face to see that Mojang’s ill-fated CCG/Hex-based […]

Xenonauts 2 starts its crowdfunding drive with a demo

Kickstarter is always a risk, but so is X-Com. Even a 99% shot has a chance to miss, but you go for it anyway, and I’d say that Xenonauts 2 is in with a pretty dang good chance of being a solid squad tactics game. The fact that it’s halfway to its £50,000 funding goal […]

Watch 5 minutes of the gory Resident Evil 2 remake

Do you want to see more of Resident Evil 2’s floppy-haired Leon as he runs away from zombies? Of course you do. After a few years of waiting, Capcom’s gory remake finally made the rounds at E3 this year, and gosh does it look flashy. This isn’t a 20-year-old game with a fresh coat of […]
