‘Dice equipment management’ might not be a phrase that ignites your passion for turn-based roguelikes, but it does accurately describe Terry Cavanagh’s latest game. Don’t be fooled though: Dicey Dungeons is still in alpha, but it’s already a blast. Update 0.11 landed last night, introducing new art from Marlowe Dobbe and new music from Chipzel. You might remember Chipzel from Super Hexagon, a previous game by Cavanagh that I found hard to stop playing for entirely different reasons – apart from the music. As of this update you’ll need to pay if you want access to the latest version, but you can still play the builds from the pre-Chipzel era for free. You might not want to though, after bopping your head to the trailer below. It’s a deliciously simple formula. On each turn you roll dice, then slot those dice into your equipment. Strategies start off basic and never reach the complexity of Slay The Spire, with which the game shares much of … [Read more...] about Chipzel and Cavanagh team up again in the latest Dicey Dungeons update

World famous techno DJ Solomun entered GTA Online last week, as part of its After Hours update. As I mentioned here and here and here, the Bosnian superstar's music is banging—and his latest track, named Customer is King, brings Los Santos to the world. Captured entirely in-game, the official music video for Customer is King features below, which is the first time Rockstar has collaborated with an artist in this way, the developer tells us. You'll spot some Easter eggs along the way—poor Tracey De Santa gets kidnapped towards the end, for example—and I reckon you'll like the production even if you're not into techno. The thought that you might not be makes me sad, but perhaps that's a conversation for another day.What a day poor Solomun's had there. And it could be argued it's about to get worse—Tale of Us enter the LS club scene fold today, and could potentially draw audiences away from the big man. I'll dive deeper into ToU's arrival in a … [Read more...] about GTA 5’s Los Santos takes centre stage in real world DJ’s latest video

We're now two episodes deep into "Dontnod presents Vampyr," an aptly titled series of mini-documentaries designed to flesh out the studio's titular vampire RPG ahead of its upcoming (albeit delayed) release. The latest episode, "Architects of the Obscure," focuses on the environments and music which color Vampyr's London nightlife. There are four key districts, explains narrative director Stephane Beauverger. You have Whitechapel, the immigrant district; the East End Docks, which are both impoverished and replete with crime; the Hospital district where protagonist Jonathan Reid can talk to or kill patients, nurses and department heads; and the wealthier West End district, said to provide a vertical slice of myriad social classes. The connecting theme is, as always, Jonathan's internal struggle, the gulf between his responsibilities as a doctor and his urges as a vampire. This struggle influenced Vampyr's music as well, composer Olivier Deriviere says, which led Dontnod to … [Read more...] about Vampyr’s latest dev diary explores its environments and music
