Good Freedom everyone! We have way too much freedom this week, so much so it is going to be hard to contain within a news post. You owe it to yourself to play each release! Your Freedom Wallet will thank you!

First release we have today is Defender Story for Windows, Mac and Linux. A hybrid tower-defense/RPG (Role Playing Game) game setup in a dark and gritty fantasy medieval world. Drop colored gems on your base units in different combinations to create heroes with unique and powerful abilities. The difficult choices you make have consequences and give you access to different traveling companions and spells. Explore the world of Irael through many hand-made fantasy maps levels. Level up your characters and use them in different combinations on the battlefield. Learn to defeat waves combining many different types of enemies ranging from swarming goblins to powerful sword wielding demons.

The second game is Heavy Fortress for Windows and Mac. Heavy Fortress is a top down minimalistic shooter. The recipe of this game is simple. Two six-barreled machine guns + Two heavy cannons + Several power-ups + Hordes of enemies and it's done! and it's done!

Thirdly we have a fantastic entry is OpenRA for Windows, Mac and Linux. Open-Source reimplementation of Westwood’s Command & Conquer: Red Alert game engine, updated to use the hardware acceleration of modern video cards using OpenGL and OpenAL for sound playback. It runs natively on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The game was designed with modifiability in mind, but is not identical to the original. Campaigns and mods made for the legacy game won't work out of the box.

Lastly we have UFO: Alien Invasion for Windows, Mac and Linux. It is the year 2084. You control a secret organization charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your soldiers, and lead them to victory in turn-based tactical combat.

Come back next week for more fantastic freedom games!

Once again Friday has reared her head with a basket of Freedom that will... free your wallet? Yeah that works. Check out the games on offer this week!

The first game released for your freedom feast is Fabricant: Episode 1 for Windows. Fabricant is an indie horror game about Steven Conerly, a young man who wants to earn some easy money. His task is to visit an abandoned factory. Built 70 years ago, it was a pretty well functioning factory until it got closed in 1912 because of disappearing workers. Since that day everything is like it was in 1912. No one has been there for 42 years... "There is something wrong with this place.. and what it is.. I'm going to find out."

The second dish this week is Bickadoodle for Windows. Bickadoodle is a short adventure made with the Wintermute Engine in four weeks. It’s a comedy stick-man fairy-tale with a twist. Laugh! Vanquish evil! Use magic potions! Quest for treasure! Ride your very own horse! Maybe find true love? 

The third game you wish to devour this week is The Chase for Windows. You are in a labyrinth where you must find all four books to escape. You should remember though, you are not alone!

The last game for this week is First Person Tennis for Windows and Mac. First Person Tennis is the first tennis videogame in the world developed only with a first person perspective to give you a realism ever seen. Explode your top spins, forehands, backhands and try to win one of the tournaments. Choose how many sets to play in a match and select the difficulty level. Adjust your shots and feel the sensation to hit a winner on a tennis court. Feel the power of your shots by vibration; trail effect will make your shots more spectacular! Try to become the World’s Number 1 playing all 13 real tournaments and breaking your personal records! Choose a court and play an instant match in exhibition mode. Swipe controls or virtual joypad. Grass, Clay, Carpet, Hard, Indoor. Each one with a different bounce! With English TV commentary!

Come back next week for more vidja games!

So much Freedom this Friday! So get cozy, put your wallet/purse/novelty coin bag back on the pedestal (because where we are going we don't need wallets/purse/novelty coin bags) its go time!

First game on the block this week is Stunt Rally for Windows and Linux. Open source racing game with a track editor. It focuses on closed rally tracks with possible stunt elements (jumps, loops, pipes). You can drive in Single-Player mode racing against the clock or completing championships. There is also an online Multi-Player mode.

The second game is Just Another Hard Game for Windows. This is a 2D side scrolling platform, except unlike most platformers where you can always see where you are jumping, the ground is invisible until you stand on it. There are 4 difficulty settings: Practice - Everything is visible and checkpoints are enabled. Easy - Nothing is visible but checkpoints are enabled. Blocks stay visible after death Medium - Nothing is visible and checkpoints are disabled. Blocks stay after death Hard - Nothing is visible, checkpoints are disabled and all blocks disappear after you die.

Thirdly we have Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok for Windows. In desperation, the jarl of Jarnvidr has called for a Heroine, to stand against the forces of frost and put an end to the lasting winter. Her might, sorcery, and cunning may be humanity’s last resort. Are you up to the task, or will you die trying? Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way. The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game will have excellent replayability.

The last game for this fantastic friday is Artifice: Faith in Chaos for Windows. Artifice is an old-timey arcade shooter with a Sci-Fi theme. The aim of the game is just to have fun, relax, and enjoy the awesome graphics!

Come back next week for more savings... 100% savings...
