0 comments by Henley on Oct 24th, 2014

When Friday comes around Freedom abounds! Four games ready to consume all for the low low cost of nothing! Let's see what is on offer this week!

First game released this Friday is Holyspirit for Windows. Holyspirit is a 2D isometric hack'n'slash game. A hack'n'Slash is an action role playing game, like Diablo. You play a Holyspirit, which is an old corrupted soul who has been enlisted in God's army. You must liberate the country from the evil who has been unleashed against the living ones.

Second release is Urban Terror for Windows, Mac and Linux. Urban Terror is a free multiplayer first person shooter developed by FrozenSand, that (thanks to the ioquake3-code) does not require Quake III Arena anymore. It is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh. Urban Terror can be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; somewhat realism based, but the motto is "fun over realism". This results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.

Third release is Spooky's House of Jump Scares for Windows. Can you survive 1000 rooms of cute terror? Or will you break once the cuteness starts to fade off and your running for your life from the unspeakable hideous beings that shake and writhe in bowels of this house? They wait for you, they wait and hunger for meeting you. They long to finally meet you and show you how flexible your skin can be after it has soaked in blood. Will you brave this journey, will you set to beat the impossible, the insane, and the incorporeal?

The final release we have is Music of the Spheres for Windows. Music of the Spheres is a puzzle-shooter about bouncing bullets, Islamic art, and sound. In it you can fire bullets which bounce, and when they bounce, a specific glockenspiel note is played.

That simple premise gives rise to a lot of strategies, and the levels are designed to bring those strategies out. The way they do that is more “puzzle” than “shooter” - the game does not require many reflexes or risks. It just requires thoughtfulness and precision. It is intended express things concisely, and wordlessly - you do not have to be able to speak any language in order to play this game.

Come back next week for more freedom!

Freedom Friday - Oct 17

0 comments by Henley on Oct 17th, 2014

The fantastic friday freedom is back! Will these four freebies quench your thirst for vidja? Will the games manage to keep your wallet fat and happy? The answer to these questions and more is a resounding YES!

Game number one is Annex: Conquer The World for Windows, Mac and Linux. Annex: Conquer the World is an anime themed real time strategy game that brings fast paced combat with a diverse arsenal. Play as one of four factions: The East Ocean Alliance, the NEO Republic, the Shadow Organization, or the Renegades as they struggle for dominance all over the world, competing for a priceless red mineral. The game now contains 4 factions, over 30 tech trees, original maps, and tileset. Built using open source RTS MegaGlest, the focus of the game is multi-player and single-player skirmishes. However there are also scripted scenarios/missions!

Game number two is Cubified for Windows. Cubified is an action-platformer in which you control Cuby, a gray blob-like creature able to transform into a cube at the press of the spacebar. Use this ability to press buttons that help Cuby along his way, as well as smash through certain floors that allow him to access new areas. When reverting back to original form, Cuby will launch up much higher than he could with a standard jump, letting him reach new heights.

Traverse three levels, each unique in their appearance and gameplay style. The first level will have Cuby exploring a standard side-scrolling platformer style area. Level two is a slower-paced puzzle area where Cuby must use his wits to grab the coin in each section. The final level gives Cuby a much higher jump, and has him automatically running at high speeds with no way to stop.

Game number three is UnReal World for Windows, Mac and Linux. UnReal World is a combination of roleplaying game and a survival simulation. In a world inspired by iron-age Finland you can track animals, set traps, hunt with bows and spears, tan hides, go fishing, pick berries, cook food, sleep in a temporary shelter or build a log cottage, trade with the villagers, craft items, etc. It has a randomly generated map, skill development and a detailed wounds and combat system. The item crafting is moddable.

Game number last is Delta Loop for Windows or Mac. Take control of the most advanced combat spaceship, in a desperate last stand in outer space. Your mission is a simple but tough one: decimate all the enemies before they decimate you. Get ready to fight endless waves of increasingly challenging hostile ships, equip powerful weapons and enhancements, and put your skills on the line. Will you be able to earn a place for yourself in the elite pilot ranks?". Delta Loop is a fast-paced space arcade shooter with a big focus on gameplay. Anyone -from people not used to action games to seasoned arcade experts- can have a fun and skill-rewarding experience.

Freedom Friday - Oct 10

2 comments by Henley on Oct 10th, 2014

Happy Friday ya'll! It's time for Freedom! Four freedom for you this friday!

The first game we have is Pixel Heroes for Windows, Mac and Linux. Your epic story begins... Pixel Heroes is a dungeon crawler/hero sim/rpg in which you have to lead a team of heroes through several dungeons. Tons of random-generated loot and awesome legendary items are waiting for you! Pixel Heroes features a turn-based combat system, classical RPG mechanics and a genuine overland travel system. The game is currently in a playable beta state, there is a lot of content missing but most features are implemented.

The second game is Neonskip for Windows. Neonskip is a very simple and entertaining game, which involves avoiding falling obstacles above a triangle, using the navigation arrows. Also, you can upload your score to compete with friends and the rest of the world. The game has 8 levels and very addictive gameplay! This indie game was developed by Eam Games! Neonskip was developed nothing less than to entertain players, and is completely free!

The third game for this Friday is Bezier for Windows. Bezier is a dual stick blaster set inside a vast computer built deep underground. The story traces the principal's escape from this "Noah's Ark" gone wrong. A simple shooter on the surface, the deeper narrative pulls in his relationship between evolution and god, family and love. These themes question his motives, force him to confront what is real and lead him to salvation. Powered by the BezierSynth traditional rendering is renounced in favour of a fluid aesthetic guided by story elements, player interaction and the audio engine. An eighty minute soundtrack blends together orchestra, synthesizers and many ethnic instruments to drive the drama through fifteen zones. Almost one hundred different enemies, voice acting, reward based achievements and different game modes make Bezier the mindless blaster with a big heart.

The forth and final game is PICNIC for Windows, Mac and Linux. Picnic is a postmodern text/music/sound nightmare labyrinth game world where you have to take the novel "Picnic" by the eccentric writer Raymond Roussel and re-construct his work. It's picnic time!

Come back next Friday for more FREEEDDDOOOMMM!!
