This Friday is unlike all the previous as we have four distinct and four very free indie games for the Freedom Lovers in us all. And unlike other Fridays this Friday is right now so open your enjoyment receptacles and prepare for a Freedom Overdose! ed: note you cannot actually overdose on freedom, but still enjoy responsibly.
The first on the block is An Apparently Normal Room for Windows. An Apparently Normal Room is apparently just a white room in the middle of nowhere. There is apparently nothing special about it. A single light illuminates the room. But it's not as simple as that, apparently. Next we have Pest Control From Outer Space for Windows. P.C.F.O.S is a game with a touch of puzzle and survival with a third person top view. The player plays the role of Bert Badejo, an intergalactic bug exterminator. Bert goes from one space station to another on a daily basis, freeing them from the threat of the "Cucaracho", a creature from the deep space... And pretty dangerous!
Thirdly we have Ninja Torappu for Windows. Ninja Torappu is a stupid game about twitch reflexes, pixel perfect platforming and sheer dumb luck all wrapped up with an original Game Boy flavour. Work your way down an endless, randomly generating tower of doom as it spits fireballs, arrows, spikes and evil demon skulls at you, all in an attempt to end your run. It'll speed up, it'll slow down, but it'll never stop trying to claim you. The last game on your six is The Way of Life for Windows, Mac and Linux. The Way of Life is an exploration game that has 3 main characters: a business man, an old man and a child. They find themselves on a road which is apparently the same, but changes upon their perception of reality. The core of the gameplay is to explore in order to see how different is each point of view. The player will switch from one character to another trying to correctly and fully interact with all the environment.
Hope this serving of Freedom was to your liking! Come back next week for another new menu of goodness!
My my it is Friday! Do you know what that means? Another selection of Freedom!
First up is Unbreakable: Scorched Earth for Windows. Unbreakable is a hack and slasher with a difference. Merging RTS and RPG mechanics with smooth combat, we're creating an experience that can be tailored to fit your own personal play style. Arthos is under threat. The Dracorians, a race of dragon tamers, have begun a war that threatens to cover the continent in the ash of the fallen. The Elves, their vast kingdom reduced to charred remains, have taken refuge in their last remaining city of Sylva, saved from extinction only by the race of Men and their valiant defence against the enemy. Up next for a turn on the Freedom Segway is Edge of Dawn for Windows. Edge Of Dawn is a survival horror game that stands out through smart path-finding creating a tense and "real" situation for your survival. Edge of Dawn is a free game for everyone to enjoy and share.
The Third game knocking on Freedoms Door is Sepia Tears for Windows, Mac and Linux. "I'm the person you wish you never met." Sepia Tears is a romance visual novel. It's about a high schooler named Mark, an ordinary protagonist with a memory that he tries very hard to forget. It's also about a girl named Myra who knows more about him than any stranger should, and who reminds him uncannily of his past. Together, they search for a storybook romance and realize that love doesn't always bloom as neatly as it ought to.
Lastly on the podium of Freedom we have Into the Underdusk for Windows. "I live alone in a world that has ended. Nothing is born here, neither does anything die..." Welcome to the Underdusk - a world where life and light are fading away into the dark night, though it was not always this way. Something happened, and the Dark consumed the world. And now, even your memories are beginning to fade. Can you find your lost locket, and fulfill one last wish, or will you go quietly into that dark night? Grab power-ups. Explore. Uncover secrets. Jump, dodge, and outmaneuver your enemies. Find and collect all the mysterious orbs and achieve your victory.
Come back next week for more 100% sales!
What a perfect start to that perfect weekend! Freedom will always go down a treat and these four are a special order just for you... And well I guess everyone else as well. Because they're free games.
Up first we have Super Mega Bob for Windows. Super Mega Bob is a reflection of my childhood – an awesome childhood fueled by games like Mega Man, The Legend of Zelda, Adventures of Lolo, and Kirby! A 16-bit style 2D shooter filled with enemies, levels, upgrades, and awesome bosses, Super Mega Bob is a combination of all the stuff that make classic games so rockin’ along with some newer concepts that help gameplay seem completely smooth. Secondly we have Astrorush for Windows. Astrorush is a minimalistic but yet highly addictive old-style arcade-like minigame available for mini-price. Take control of your space craft and sustain untouched as long as you can while gathering minerals from deadly dangerous asteroid belt.
The third treat this week is Hockee for Windows and Mac. HOCKEE is a local grudge match for two people with at least two fingers apiece and no serious personal space issues. Rush the puck, slam your opponent, and make a mad dash for the goal before they figure out how to turn around. First to three points gets to scream victorious vitriol directly into their friend's quivering ears. Lastly we have Walk for Windows. A simple exploration game with a beautiful visual style and atmosphere with simple, intuitive controls. Your only real objective is to find the darkly coloured sphere. Look for planets orbiting it and the dark sparks it emits. Although you don't have to look for it, you can just walk around, listen to the peaceful music and soak up the wonderful atmosphere. You and the sphere are randomly placed around the world so each playthrough is different.
Come back next week for more tasty treats!
It's a special day for that special someone in your life, why not give them the gift of Freedom! The ladies love freedom!
The first delicious treat out of the Freedom Box is Back to life for Windows. Back to life is a platform game based on physics. The setting is biological/cell and the protagonist is a beneficial cell that needs to revive the dying cells of a tissue. In each level you will need to bring back to life at least 90% of the cells, and to do this the player must jump over them or fly over. The second extremely sugarious release is Don't Kill the Cow for Windows. Don't Kill the Cow is a simple side scrolling critical game that questions the importance of goals and authority in games. There is only one way to win the game: ‘don’t kill the cow’, but is winning the game worth letting your sister starve? How much do the simple phrases like ‘you win’ and ‘you lose’ mean to the player?
The second to last bite of this scrumptious freedom morsel is An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge for Windows. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge is a game adaptation of the story by the same name written by Ambrose Bierce. A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man's hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck. It was attached to a stout cross-timber above his head and the slack fell to the level of his knees. The last bite comes in the form of CYPHER for Windows. Welcome to CYPHER. A corrupt government controls Mars as corporations sell oxygen at a premium. You are an agent with an incredible skill set determined to eliminate the system. Taking information is how you will do it; unfortunately, other organizations are seeking what you are. They will stop at nothing to steal the valuable data you hack...
Come back next week Freedomknights for more Freedom!
Fantastic! It is Friday, it is the end of the week and it is the time where we make it rain with free games! That's right, its Freedom Friday!
Up first is Escape the Underground for Windows. You are Frederick, a little guy who eats blocks and rocks for a living, and unfortunately you're sent to hell. No one knows why... Anyway, your task is to try and escape, away from hell, and back to your previous life. The evil spirits want you dead, every 10 seconds. If you don't satisfy them, you will be destroyed and return to the last place you stood. Just keep in mind, you can hardly see anything, and you're in a rush. Good luck! Next is Mansionvania for Windows. Mansionvania is a castlevania insipired platformer, as the name might suggest. You play as a short policeman whose pet lizzard has been kidnapped by an evil warlock. Fight your way through his mansion and save your pet. Containing 9 levels and 4 bosses, an unique art style and plenty of challenging gameplay.
The third game for Freedom Friday is Welcome Home for Windows and Mac. Home rejuvenates your mind from stress and the formal structure that humans have developed. This game takes your mind, and twists it with philosophical thoughts about a human's mindset and his or her journey through life. This game personifies that feeling, and helps you the player better understand it and describe it. The last game this Friday is Blue Saga for Windows and Mac. Blue Saga is a free indie mmorpg currently in development but released in a beta-version, so just download the game and start playing! The game features retro pixel art and a gigantic world to explore, both by land and sea. There is only one person developing this game at the moment but updates are coming frequently.
Come back next week for more Freedom of the Friday variety.
