Slice-of-life sim Spirittea channels Stardew Valley and the spirit world

No More Robots have announced they’ll be publishing Cheesemaster Games’ Spirittea, a supernatural bath-house management and life simulator based around magical tea that lets you see spirits. I’m sitting here right now slurping what must be my quintillionth cup of tea so far today, so I’m quite up for finding out more about this one. I just hope the water in the kettle doesn’t come from the bathhouse. Read more

Satirical bouncer sim Not Tonight 2 is coming to America

There’s enough political friction in the world for Brexit-inspired bouncing sim Not Tonight to return for a second round.

Heist Simulator lets you craft your own capers and share them with the world

Heist Simulator has a plan. Look here. See that bit I’ve circled? That’s where your little team of reprobates break into a fancy mansion, or a bustling casino, and make off with the spoils. No fuss. Seems simple, yeah? Well, look over here. This is where the players will be able to set up the heists themselves. They create and publish their own missions, using complex tools to build the levels, hide the loot, and set traps. Not so simple after all.

Have You Played… Hypnospace Outlaw?

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

Have you played… Descenders?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I dove into Descenders for the first time knowing absolutely nothing about it, assuming it was a racing game with bikes. Imagine my surprised glee when it turned out to be a roguelite. A very solid one. (more…)
