It Takes Two’s merch is all boring apart from the dismember-me-elephant

I slammed back into the team chat after an appointment this morning, and Katharine asked me to take a look at the new It Takes Two merch – specifically the plushy elephant.

In an exclusive report from Variety, the project is officially in development at Amazon Studios, and there’s reportedly a whole host of other household names involved. Namely, those of Seven Bucks Production: Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia. We know Dwayne Johnson is going to be helping with the production of the film adaptation of It Takes Two, but there’s yet…

Inscryption wins the IGF Grand Prize and GDC Game Of The Year Award 2022

Last night, RPS’ Bestest Best game of 2021 Inscryption won the Seumus McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival Awards, confirming that once again, we are correct about everything. If that wasn’t enough, though, an hour later, Inscryption then won the Game Of The Year award at the Game Developers Choice Awards. It’s the first time a game has ever won both awards in the same year, which is a stonking achievement. Clearly, our Advent Calendar made some pretty big waves this year. Just saying. Read more

Best of 2021: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Tom’s other GOTY picks

Plus It Takes Two, Forza Horizon 5, and the most underrated multiplayer game of the year. I sat and thought about my favourite game of the year, cycling through games like an old fashioned slideshow in my mind – maybe I’d played too much of the Alan Wake remaster. In truth a lot of the slides were blank or at best out of focus; games I played for a bit but bounced off or just didn’t find the time to explore properly. That is all the slides except for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (and a couple of others, but…

Our favourite games of 2021 so far

With 2021 marching on at a seemingly impossible pace, we thought it was high time we sat down in our virtual Treehouses to chat about the best games of the year we’ve played so far. 2021 has been an odd year for games. The first few months were front-loaded with some big meaty hitters after giving Cyberpunk 2077 a wide berth at the end of last year, while others have been pushed back even further into the depths of 2022. Indeed, a lot of the games we’re really looking forward to in 2021 are still hovering away on the horizon,…

It Takes Two, Hazelight’s great new co-op puzzle platformer, is out now

The next two player ’em up from Hazelight Studios is officially out now. It Takes Two puts you and your co-op pal in a split screen adventure to help potential divorcees Cody and May learn to work together again as tiny, Honey I Shrunk My Spouse versions of themselves. Better yet, it sounds like Hazelight have even successfully mediated the marriage between all the many types of character abilities they’ve chucked together this time around. Knowing that, I’m plenty ready to call up my usual pal to tackle this one. Read more
