Freedom Friday is here again, with four new free games from this past week.

First up is Slam Junk! for Windows. Slam Junk! is a hack'n'slash-platform-puzzle game that lets you control a cyborg that uses his amazing electromagnetic skills. However, this power comes with a cost, since with every new action he sacrifices the battery power that keeps him alive.

Next is Bad Juju Games's own Flip Riders for Windows, Mac and Linux. Flip Riders is a game packed full with features, exciting content and a lot freebies (not to mention a few minor fixes). More Flips, Spins, Riders and Great Game Modes than ever before!

Third on the list is Battlemass 2 for Windows, Mac and Linux. Battlemass 2 is a turn-based strategy game where matches are played on a map consisting of tiles, and in turns of 3 phases – combat, harvest and build. The goal is to destroy your opponent's Main Building. You will mine the map's tiles, causing them to lower and altering the possible tiles that units can move to and attack from.

Lastly we have An Apparently Normal Room for Windows. An Apparently Normal Room is a sequel to Insert Title Here. A white room in the middle of nowhere. It has nothing special. A single light illuminates the room. But it's not as simple as that.

First up is SanctuaryRPG for Windows. SanctuaryRPG is a critically acclaimed strategic turn-based monster slaying and dungeon crawling adventure set in the retro ASCII-art world of Sanctuary.

Second on the list is Wicked's Endless Bullet Hell for Windows, Mac and Linux. Wicked's Endless Bullet Hell is a never ending bullet hell game where the objective is to get as high of a score as possible by destroying enemy ships as fast as possible in order to build a combo while effectively using the shield mechanic and dodging enemy bullets.


The third game is Fibrillation for Windows. Fibrillation is a first person philosophic horror with elements of mysticism for a run-through in one breath. You’ve got only one chance to play through the whole game with no savings.

Fourth and last for today 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?

Freedom Friday - Dec 12

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!
