Freedom Friday - Dec 12

0 comments by JJones_BJJG on Dec 12th, 2014

This week's Freedom Friday reflects back with two games that were popular around this time last year, while also spotlighting two other more recent games. You can play all four today for free!

Number one is recently updated Alco Invaders for Windows, Mac and Linux. Imagine a galactic party where each planet is filled with alcoholic beverages, but aliens were not invited. They decided to disrupt the party and steal the sources of fun. Don't let them stop the party! Help to defeat the aliens and save the galaxy! Use your weapons, build turrets, push asteroids or even ram alco-invaders to win.

Second up is the highly rated Triera for Windows. An error occurs on a huge interplanetary spaceship called Triera, with four levels of robot-inhabited cities. The error leads to weird changes of all cities. The robot-manufacturing plant starts to produce new robots with malfunctions. All survived robots have to hide on a zero level, while other levels are already inhabited with zombie robots. All service stations in the cities got destroyed. Triera is at the self-vanishing point. But there is a way out: the only service station still exists on a zero level. But will the mechanic robot have a chance to reach the central panel and find out the reasons of this failure? Will he be able to reset the spaceship’s control system? Triera - the dynamic vertical platformer with lots of bonuses and generated unique levels.


The third game of the day is Scavenger for Windows, Mac and Linux, which held onto 2nd place in Desura's top 20 earlier this year. Have you ever wondered what it felt like to pilot the Millennium Falcon through the asteroid field in Empire Strikes Back; dodging asteroids and evading enemy fighters? Do you love the retro nostalgia of wireframe graphics and glitchy music? Do you have an urge to hoard goods and upgrade spaceships? If you answered yes to any of these questions Scavenger could be the game for you!

Fourth up is One Late Night for Windows, Linux and Mac, and was an instant hit among horror fans upon it's release. One Late Night is a short immersive horror-game experience, starring an unnamed graphic designer employee, working late one night at the office, until strange things start to happen... Be sure to keep an eye out for the sequal to One Late Night coming soon!

Freedom Friday - Dec 5

Freedom Friday is upon us with more free games for everyone to checkout.

The first game is Pitman for Windows, Mac and Linux. Pitman is a turn-based rogue-like with boardgame style. Everything you desire is inside the randomized dungeons: Dwarfs, trolls, golems, treasures, potions, magic, hammer, bow, much more weapons, ... and don't forget the monster moles and pretzels!

Game number two is Spellheart for Windows. Spellheart is a fun multiplayer action game that you can play with your friends for free! With a customizable server that anyone can host, the possibilities are endless. There are no classes in this game. As the player learns abilities and chooses items, the player creates his own class. Since the player decides his/her own class each match, the gameplay is dynamic. Because of dynamic classes, there is no "best build", as players must counter each other in order to win.


The third game in the list is Springer for Windows, Mac and Linux. Springer is a space arcade game, in which you overcome obstacles and find the treasure. One day while exploring deep space you bumped into a mysterious ancient bottle. Inside was a treasure map. "Follow the golden path and you'll find planets full of precious metals and stones." So you immediately set off on a dangerous journey.

Finally we have Terrance the Flying Eyeball for Windows, Mac and Linux. Play as a disembodied eyeball, called Terrance, who is forced by fate to complete a set of dangerous challenges involving bouncing off surfaces, breaking glass tubes, and dodging plasma projectiles, in order to feel content and satisfied with life.
