More Free Play On InstantAction

By Jim Rossignol on December 12th, 2008.


The InstantAction blog reports there’s a whole load of free gaming now available at their online gaming portal. If you’ve not had a go at Galcon yet (pictured) then it’s worth a look. People who purchased action passes “may” be eligible for a refund, and will get early access to the three new games currently in beta.

Anyway, if you haven’t yet been over to InstantAction and had a good look around, now is a good time to do so.

Instant Instant Action

By Alec Meer on March 7th, 2008.

Garagegames, they of the Torque middleware engine best known from Tribes, have today opened up the beta of their latest endeavour, InstantAction.

Fallen Empire: Legions

By Jim Rossignol on January 17th, 2008.

JETPACKS!

By Kieron Gillen on December 24th, 2007.

While I weight up the possibility of starting Christmas shopping and/or working out how to get back to my hometown of Stafford, Colin Pyle brings us news that Shacknews brought him news of some leaked footage for something that looks an awful lot like Starsiege Tribes from GarageGames… founded by members of Dynamix… who… made… Starsiege tribes. Woo!

NOT tribes

Garagegames have stressed this is alpha footage and wasn’t meant for anything other the internal use – which always makes me image everyone crawling into the Lead Designer’s guts any time they want to look at it – but it’s over at Shacknews, along with some other captures too. It seems to be part of Garagegames InstantAction initiative, which will be launching next year. If you haven’t heard of it, imagine ULTRA-FLASH meets Post-Steam. Or something.
