Soon, virtual worlds will be crawling with skeletons, jack o’ lanterns, and all that good stuff.

Playing This Weekend
Pinch and a punch for the first of the month – and no returns! This is a special first day too, May Day, which means we’ll all be off on Monday thanks to the bank holiday here in the UK.

What did you get in the sales? Which games did our advent calendar nudge you into trying? And if you fancy more chat with folks over the break, perhaps you might visit the RPS forum or RPS Discord server?
