Text-based RPG Cyberpunkdreams is out now and free to play

Cyberpunkdreams, as is the law for cyberpunk games, is set in a biggo futuristic city. Ah, but the city in question? No no, not future London. Not New York, or anywhere in California. Welcome to the cyberpunk midwest, everyone. This free, text-based RPG is set in the 2090s border city of Cincinnati. That’s in Ohio, which is the middle of the United States, which you’ll be forgiven for not knowing if you don’t live two hours away from it. As of 2090, it’s one of the hottest places to be, the biggest border city between the future states and the…

Mech Mechanic Simulator’s demo is a relaxing way to spend time with mechs

Mech Mechanic Simulator is a PlayWay joint, and it shows. PlayWay publish games like House Flipper and Car Mechanic Simulator, and if you’ve played or seen them, you know what to expect with this upcoming, scifi variant. The same as the others – but with mechs! That is to say, the same as the others, but better. There’s a trailer below, and a demo on Steam that I’ve had a play with. (more…)

Rec Room has a million monthly VR players

Rec Room is sort of like Roblox: a place where people can make their own games and easily chat and play with friends. Where it most differs from Roblox is its early focus on supporting virtual reality, and its developers now report that the game has “over 1 million monthly active VR users”. That’s a lot. (more…)

The best game you missed in July 2020: Teen Island Simulator

As 2020 goes kicking and screaming into that good night, we’ve rounded up some of the best games from the year that we didn’t end up covering. Check the Best Game You Missed tag for more. The castaways are a ragtag crew of teens: Lily is smart, Jaimie is athletic, and Oliver is charming. Sure, there’s Audrey, but she’s such a rebel and her crush on Joshua is making it tough for her to get anything done. And on the night of Day 8, Lily seems to have remembered seeing a documentary about a ritual to scare evil spirits and…

The Anything Gallery is a museum of whatever you want it to be

Look, I’ve covered a lot of videogame museums in my time with RPS. It’s fitting, then, that I’d eventually cover a virtual art gallery of literally everything. Released for free this weekend, The Anything Gallery is exactly that – an exhibition of anything you want, curating from any phrase you enter before its wings skew off into weird and wild tangents stretching infinitely in every direction.

Familiars packs a full-featured Pokemon clone into a single Tweet

When you spend half your day glued to Twitter, you get used to the occasional double- or triple-take. But I don’t think anything’s ever made me stop and shout as much as stumbling upon Familiars – a browser-based monster-catching MMO that developer Loam has somehow managed to cram into a video embed, letting you embark on an honest-to-god online RPG without ever leaving Twitter.

The Epic Games Store is giving out daily free games, starting next week

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… well, I don’t know, it’s still only December 10th. And while I certainly wouldn’t consider a corporate storefront my true love, it looks like the Epic Games Store may also have a dozen or so presents to leave under the tree. Starting next Thursday, Epic will give out a new free gift every day for 15 days – and I’m all but certain there’ll not be a pair of socks in sight. (more…)

Interview With The Whisperer is a chatbot conversation with God’s best mate

An old man in Northern Spain claims to have a direct line to the divine, and you’re off to see if he’s legit. Interview With The Whisperer, a free short story from the creators of The Red Strings Club and The Bookshelf Limbo, is a wonderfully intimate conversation with a distracted old man and – if you’re lucky – the cosmic supernatural entity on the other side of his short-wave radio.

The first Witcher is free to keep with a GOG Galaxy download

Have you played The Witcher? Not the massively popular third one, mind, but CD Projekt’s 2008 series-starter. It’s a little uglier, a little jankier, and Geralt’s face doesn’t look quite so dashing. But it’s also now free for anyone who downloads the GOG Galaxy client, letting you jump back into Geralt’s boots for nary a crown. (more…)
