Free This Weekend: Games!

By Jim Rossignol on November 2nd, 2010.


Well, only two multiplayer games, but they are games. One is zero-G astronaut battler (with excellent space furniture), Shattered Horizon, and the other is slightly wonky Wild West shoot ‘em up Lead & Gold: Gangs Of The Wild West. They’re temporarily free to play on Steam over the weekend, with a large discount for actual permanent purchase if the freeness persuades you of long-term appeal.

Hmm. That – Shattered Horizon, I mean – would have made a good game club outing. As Phill pointed out, it’s benefited great from its updates. Oh well, maybe we squeeze in some astronaut deathmatchery between the Arma II exploits. Hell, I bet Notch goes and makes SMP work properly before the weekend and then I will have to play that too.

The third person camera made me feel the absence a cover mechanic, the transparent spawning got on my nerves and I’d find matches often played out in an unsatisfying manner. But hey, that’s just me! And at this price it’s definitely worth a shot, so to speak.

Just in case you were wondering, the flurry of announcements we’re getting now is thanks to the big European games convention in Cologne, which I believe kicks off on the 19th. We’ll see lots of new games from European devs showing off there with their latest wares, including new Swedish development studio Fatshark, who have just announced their first game: a multiplayer cowboy shooter, Lead & Gold: Gangs Of The Wild West. It seems that the game is a third-person, team-based shooter constructed using Starbreeze’s Grin’s engine, Diesel. Rootin’ tootin’ trailer below…
