Meditations is a thought-of-the-day calendar for games

The holidays are over, and now we've got to remember how this 'work' stuff goes again - it's stressful stuff. Meditations is like a mindfulness calendar but with games that may help soothe frazzled nerves. Organised by Rami Ismail of Vlambeer, each day the Meditations launcher serves up a short, personal game and a quote to accompany it - a little window into someone else's…

Super Meat Boy free for keepsies on Epic Games Store

Splendidly deadly platformer Super Meat Boy is free to keep on the Epic Games Store if you grab it now. This is the second of the freebies luring people onto Epic's new store since its launch in December 2018, following Subnautica (and if the carrot doesn't work, there's always the stick of exclusive games). For now, hey, if you install Epic's client and register an…

Feature: Let it snow!

Priceless Play – 22 December

I have not, to this day, managed to be in the same place at the same time as a white Christmas. If you have, please, let me know. Is it still possible to snow on Christmas day anywhere south of Duluth, Minnesota? I have many happy memories of building snowmen, tobogganing, and ducking under snow-laden boughs in the backwoods of Virginia. But none of them…

Your files want to smooch in A Desktop Love Story

Here's a free little something to raise a smile before I (mostly) disappear for the holidays - it's a new Nathalie Lawhead game-o-thing! Desktop Love Story is sweet way to spend ten minutes - living on your desktop in two folders are two files. They've never met in person, but the ambiguously_shy_file.exe has a bit of a crush on cute_file.exe, and it's your job as…

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without Dracula Cha Cha

Certain tastes, scents, and experiences can immediately fill a body with Christmasness. Mince pies, mulled apple juice, playing Skeal, hearing Wham's Last Christmas down the Tesco... but it doesn't feel really truly properly Christmas until you've danced the Dracula Cha Cha. What could be more festive than everyone's favourite vampire striding across a world of 1960s pop and pulp culture, collecting presents, using his Dracula…

Quake Champions drops loot boxes and brings back Capture The Flag today

Quake Champions's December update is live, and it's one of the biggest the old-school arena shooter has seen since it entered early access. The much-maligned loot box-based economy of the game is dead, replaced by a linear progression of cosmetic rewards for each character, and extra goodies for those who pick up a Fortnite/Rocket League-styled season pass. They've also brought back Capture The Flag mode…

Islands Of Nyne: Battle Royale ends development, becomes free

The ferocious battle royale that is the genre itself claims yet another - futuristic last-man-standing shooter Islands Of Nyne is ending production after just a few months in early access. In a sad statement on Steam, developers Define Human Studios say they just can't afford to continue and are pulling the plug on production, but keeping the servers online for the immediate future. The game…

Americans can get Assassin’s Creed Odyfree from Google

If you play an hour of Assassin's Creed Odyssey before January 15th, you can keep it forever - but there are two catches. One catch is that you have to play it on Google's Project Stream, and the other is that you have to live in the US to do so. Project Stream is one of those cloud-based clients that lets you run games on…

Christmas is almost here, so it’s time to play Skeal once more

Much as every Christmas cracker must contain a paper hat and every Christmas stocking must give a satsuma, every Christmas's gaming must include Skeal. No one knows when this tradition started but it's tradition, and so we must play Skeal. I'm sure many of you already celebrate the season by playing Skeal with your family round the hearth, laughing and singing together, but for the…

Fortnite melts down the Infinity Blade

Epic Games have melted down Infinity Blade twice in one week. First they scrapped Infinity Blade, their mobile action-RPG series, and now they've removed the Infinity Blade they added to Fortnite Battle Royale in homage to it. As I explained after Epic added it, Fortnite's Infinity Blade was overpowered to the point of ruining the game at all levels from pubs to Epic's $1 million…

Feature: Make a decision!

Priceless Play – 15 December 2018

Is there anything quite so glorious as being right? The smug playground-satisfaction of pulling out an "I told you so," or (even better) the long-con revenge of living well? Of course, every good thing has its price. For every instance of being right, there must exist an equal and opposite instance of being wrong. The less enjoyable forfeit of "You were right, and I was…

Subnautica being given away free on the Epic Games Store

Subnautica - Unknown Worlds Entertainment's excellent aquatic survival adventure - is currently free to grab and keep forever on the Epic store, making it probably the most tempting reason to look at the shop after exclusives like Hades and Ashen. Released less than a year ago after a lengthy ride through early access, Subnautica is a gem. As someone who doesn't ordinarily like survival craft…

Snag it here on Steam before┬áDecember 17th and you too can enjoy hiking through the rain across the sprawling, bleak land of Chernarus. Maybe you'll even find weaponry and shelter before zombies…

Humble are stuffing stockings with free Lego The Hobbitses today

It's a good day for free stuff - the second giveaway of the day is Lego The Hobbit. While not the greatest of Traveller's Tales's sprawling list of film-to-virtual-plastic adaptations, it's a decent way to distract the kids, or yourself if you're young at heart. Based on just the first two films, it's a platformy action-adventure with local co-op and tongue firmly in cheek. Blocky…

The deals deluge begins, and GOG's winter sale opens with free goodies. Swoop on down to the giveaway page here and you can grab Full Throttle Remastered, Double Fine's polished-up version of the classic short-but-sweet Lucasarts adventure.

Doomworld’s Cacowards showcase a dazzling 25th year of Doom mods

It's Doom's 25th birthday, and Id's classic FPS has grown up along with me. While I've enjoyed modern iterations such as 2016's reboot, the original's ever-mutating open source foundation and lively mod scene just won't let me go. When John Romero announced he was releasing a nine-level Doom episode built to 1993 spec, I shrugged, because that pales in comparison to what the Doom community…
