My weekly column for the PC Gamer website, digging into the archives on a search for the unusual and forgotten names in PC gaming, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities.
Crap Shoot > Afterlife
A city builder that set itself between Heaven and Hell, but only ended up trapped in Limbo. And not without cause.
Crap Shoot > Supreme Warrior
A martial arts movie with some moves. Supreme Warrior! Are you ready to FMV rumble? Well, if so, you’re about 20 years too late…
Crap Shoot > Haunted Casino
A spooky little spin-off of the Last Half Of Darkness series, where the gamble has little to do with the poker tables. Looking for horror? Get Staufed!
Crap Shoot > Hell Cab
Prepare for the ride of your life, or indeed death, in the strangest time machine ever created. Seriously. Who’d willingly take a ride in a taxi marked Hell Cab?
Crap Shoot > Gold Rush
One of Sierra’s odder adventures makes a return, at a… uh… ambitious price point on Steam. But what makes it so strange? In that, there is a Story.
Crap Shoot > Corporation
Before Doom, before Wolfenstein 3D, and before Core Design hit it big with Lara Croft. But why does nobody remember one of the first FPS games of all time?
