Three-player platforming chaos generator HELP HURT HOPP is free and fun

Got two gamepads? Got two friends to hand? Got a PC? Good, as that's all you'll need to enjoy HELP HURT HOPP, a creative little free multiplayer game from prolific indie dev Daniel 'Managore' Linssen. Just make sure they're the kind of friends that won't punch you. Or ones you won't be tempted to punch - this is a game of rapidly escalating dickishness, as…

Space 4X Star Ruler 2 goes open source and free if you build it yourself

Star Ruler was a 4X space strategy game where ships could be as big as planets, and carry weapons that could punch holes in suns. Its 2015 sequel, Star Ruler 2 flew under our radar, but was a slightly more coherent, traditional game, while still offering conflict on a truly daft scale. Developers Blind Mind Studios have been inactive for a while now, but this…

Experience life as a Chryssalid in I’m Not A Monster’s open beta

Turn-based space-disaster sim I'm Not A Monster is a fascinating little thing. Blending old parlour game Mafia (or Werewolf, depending on how goth you're feeling) with XCOM, a team of seven players are dispatched to rescue civilians from a spacecraft under attack. The twist: Two of those players are secretly shapeshifting alien lizards, capable of transforming others into more of their kind. While there'll be…

Middle-earth: Shadow Of War gets a demo and a discount

Walking into Mordor used to be fairly simple, but the way in was guarded by the dragon of commercial necessity. Now that Middle-earth: Shadow Of War finally has a demo--nine months after launch--that dragon will turn a blind eye if you want to slip into Núrn for free. He's probably hoping you'll come back and pay £15/$20 to stroll around the rest of Mordor before…

In roguelike chess adventure Chogue you hunt the king

I move the pawn on the far right side forward two spaces. That's my go-to starting move. It frees up my castle guy. I know many things about the Chess, including the names of all the pieces. Like Castle and Horsey and Pointyhat. I know things. That's why I know that something has gone wrong when the Kingperson piece on my opponents side of the…

Hacknet is free for keepsies if you nab it promptly

When Hacknet's tutorial told me I needed to kill its process in order to progress, I couldn't bring myself to do it. Not out of sympathy for a sentient piece of software - this isn't Hackmud. I'm reasonably confident the tutorial was just a lifeless bit of code, I just couldn't do it because I'm a terrible hacker who can't tell a firewall from a…

Dead Air is S.T.A.L.K.E.R’s best standalone megamod yet

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is still years away so here's a banquet of irradiated exploration and scavenging to tide you over. Dead Air is a standalone mega-mod (no purchase necessary) for bleak FPS sandbox series S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Built on top of the fan-upgraded OpenXRay engine and using Call of Chernobyl's massive world map, it offers an uncompromising but accessible survival sandbox that looks good and runs better than any similarly huge S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod out there.

Angelina is an AI that makes games, and now you can play some online

Have you heard the good word about Angelina? It's the spawn of AI researcher Mike Cook, which he describes as "an artificial intelligence-powered research project that designs videogames". He's been tinkering with different versions of the system for eight years now, and yesterday he uploaded a collection of Angelina's best hits to Itch. They're all free to check out, and for my money that's definitely…

Play Unravel 2’s opening levels in its new trial

Cutesy puzzle-platformer Unravel 2 now has a timed trial, giving ten hours to play the start for free. The sequel launched right in the middle of E3 earlier this month, the same day as it was announced and exclusively on Origin, so even I'd half-forgotten about it myself. I've only poked at the start of the trial so far but ah, I do have soft…

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Ultimate Custom Night takes robo-horror to anarchic extremes

Scott Cawthon is an odd fellow. He started out making offbeat genre-blending RPGs before stumbling into wealth and fame with the Five Nights At Freddy's series. Several indie horror hits about surviving the night watch at a haunted animatronic pizza parlor, a line of official toys and a film in production later and what does he do? He goes back to making stuff for free.…

Battlefield 1 & 4 get another wave of free DLC giveaways

EA are retiring season passes for the Battlefield series starting with Battlefield V, and it seems that they're gradually making that change retroactive, at least in part. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 who only have the base games can pick up the Turning Tides and Second Assault expansions respectively for the always-reasonable price of free, although you'll need to grab them via…

Last Man Kicking makes office football interesting & free

I'll be the first to admit that football is not my thing. The World Cup? Baffling, honestly. Rocket League managed to make the concept of punting a ball into a net more enticing by adding jet-boosted RC cars to the mix, but I think Last Man Kicking might be what the doctor ordered today. A 2v2 office kickaround may not sound too interesting, but when everyone's glued…

Dwarf Fortress dwarves can now mull over their long term memories

Life in Dwarf Fortress was hard enough before the devs gave its denizens the ability to remember what had happened to them. After giving those dwarves the ability to remember their spouses being crushed by boulders, I'm pleased to report that the devs have softened up a little. Now those memories get a tad less painful over time, and reflecting on them lets dwarves grow…

Police Stories is coming along nicely, but taking its time

When I last played Police Stories, I was pretty delighted by how much the two level alpha had to offer. So it was with somewhat mixed feelings that a year later I found myself playing a four level alpha - this feels like slow progress, albeit it with a graphical overhaul. And yet I am just as captured and occupied by the levels it has,…
