We spend a lot of time chasing the present, so we sometimes forget to look to the future or reflect on the past. But that’s kind of what this job is all about; you’re always being driven by current events or events immediately on the horizon. But what lies beyond? And what sits in our past that we want to make sure we bring with us? That’s what I’ve been thinking about in the run up to this issue 200 of games™ and that’s what we decided to reflect in this milestone issue. So as you flick through a little further you’ll find developers and games industry veterans from across the landscape casting their eye forward and telling us what they think the future will hold. And then, in a special…

soon we will all bask in the glow of ooblets

“EVERYONE JUST SORT OF GETS ALONG AND DOESN’T TAKE LIFE TOO SERIOUSLY. WHAT A WONDERFUL THING THAT IS” FORMAT: PC, XBOX ONE | PUBLISHER: DOUBLE FINE | DEVELOPER: GLUMBERLAND | RELEASE: 2018 | PLAYERS: 1 Having had the chance to sit down and play Ooblets again, we have to say we’re still sitting in the glow of the experience. We don’t want to get too overblown about it, because Ooblets is a relatively small and easy-going kind of experience that doesn’t really suit traditional levels of hype. That said, it is such a gorgeous, laid-back and delightful game to play that we feel duty bound to pass the word along; Ooblets is really cool and you’re going to love it. We were still on an early build of the game, so it had…

how spidermanaims to wow us

“INSOMNIAC’S SUPERHERO GAME STANDS TO BE ITS MOST AMBITIOUS TITLE YET” FORMAT: PS4 | PUBLISHER: SONY INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT DEVELOPER: INSOMNIAC GAMES | RELEASE: 7 SEPTEMBER 2018 | PLAYERS: 1 WEB-SLINGING COMBAT Combat in Spider-Man lets you play by your rules, letting you improvise as you take down criminals. Peter Parker is more than Spider-Man; he’s also a genius inventor, and has created a variety of gadgets that combine his web-slinging abilities with helpful technology to assist in crowd control. Of course, you can also use old-fashioned martial arts to dispose of your foes. SUIT UP Not a fan of Insomniac’s specially designed suit for this game? Worry not, as you’ll be able to don a number of different suits in Spider-Man. The suits aren’t just for looks either, as each one has different abilities and…

sacrifice your life and sanityin cultist simulator

“CULTIST SIMULATOR LOVES ENCOURAGING YOU TO STRAY FROM THE PATH, BUT SELDOM LAYS ANY BREAD CRUMBS LEADING YOU BACK” FORMAT: PC | PUBLISHER: HUMBLE BUNDLE | DEVELOPER: WEATHER FACTORY | RELEASE: 31 MAY 2018 | PLAYERS: 1 Time is money. It earns funds and consumes them. More of the former than the latter, if you play your cards right. Cultist Simulator is a digital tabletop game of cards in which the clock is always ticking. Madness and illness, both eventually fatal, are rarely more than a few carelessly spent cycles of time away. Cultist Simulator’s often obscure directions create uncertainty and anxiety while the marching clock forces the player to keep several plates spinning at a time. It deals in just the right amount of anxious energy for its subject matter, but…

disco elysiumis unlike anything you have ever played before

FORMAT: PC | PUBLISHER: HUMBLE BUNDLE | DEVELOPER: ZA/UM | RELEASE: TBC | PLAYERS: 1 1 WHAT’S IN A NAME? The name Disco Elysium – particularly when combined with its vivid watercolour artwork – may summon the image of some eighties-inspired throwback game. That, we are happy to report, couldn’t be further from the truth. Disco Elysium is the new name for No Truce With The Furies; it’s as gritty, incredible and surprising it always was. 2 A NEW KIND OF CRPG In many respects, Disco Elysium is being built in the spirit of classic RPGs. But here’s the thing, Disco Elysium doesn’t feel like a throwback. It’s actually a hyper-smart and incredibly deep isometric RPG that gives us some idea of how the genre could (and probably should) have evolved were it not for…

papers, please meets dystopian britain in not tonight

FORMAT: PC | PUBLISHER: NO MORE ROBOTS | DEVELOPER: PANICBAM | RELEASE: Q3 2018 | PLAYERS: 1 “Work hard, stay out of trouble, and we might let you stay in the UK.” We’re going to be completely honest with you, Not Tonight presents a somewhat disturbing worst-case scenario of the United Kingdom’s decision to abandon the European Union. This ‘post-Brexit thriller’ has you taking on the role of a European citizen seeking asylum in the country they once comfortably called home. Trapped in Relocation Block B – a bleak, segregated mess of high-rise flats – you are forced to make a decision: find yourself deported, or take on your new designated role of ‘Bouncer’ in service of the city. The latter is preferable in this scenario, and so you are set to…
