Art darlings: Five free games in the Triennale Collection

We already give you piles of free games every week, but I know you always want more, clamouring like a chick and opening your maw, waiting for us to regurgitate yet more free experimental interactivity into your beak. It’s disgusting. Anyway, open wide, here’s five more bright young gamethings from creators like Tale of Tales, Cardboard Computer and Pol Clarissou, all clumped together in one neat globule called the Triennale Game Collection.

Wild and free: Hunt for your cubs in FERAL

There’s an animal in all of us. A fierce beast who stalks the wilds and takes orders from nobody. Mine’s a budgerigar. But maybe you got something better. If not, here’s a free game that let’s you become a big, wild cat in a strange and alien forest. In FERAL [official site], you skulk around, listening for sounds and sniffing for deer poo – all to get meat for your cubs and become a better hunter by unlocking new abilities along the way with skill points. Just like a real predator. Come see the trailer below.

Free Loaders: Aristocratic pong in Fancy-Ass Tennis

Tally ho, old cob. I suppose you’re popping in for a pinch of the free games what what. There’s a jolly briar of the stuff down there, I’ll say that to your bright ear, old dagger. Tennis is the main event, no surprise there. But the help has been spouting all this other waffle too and I dare say there’s something to be said about it. A cowboy game, a flying duel, a farcical romance. It’s untenable just how frivolous our lives can get or that’s what the help says frighteningly well-educated but don’t ask me how or why. Well, I’ll let you take a gander for yourself, old fox. Onwards and upwards etc. Read the rest of this entry »

Free Loaders: What a plane in the neck

It’s the Saturday after thanksgiving. The turkey bits in the fridge have started to disappear, the empty bottles of hooch languish by the sink, and the corpse of uncle Kenneth still lies where it was first discovered, on the floor behind the sofa. But that’s just in the United States. Meanwhile, the rest of us have been feverishly playing these free games and giving thanks only to our neo-god, the internet. And the feast we hold in its name is not called thanksgiving but Free Loaders, now held on Saturdays again. Hooray!

Explore an island of garbage in Mundo Lixo

Ashes to ashes, dustbin to dustbin. I reach you today through future garbage, a screen upon a device you will one day discard. You are reading this no doubt surrounded by more future garbage, wearing clothes you will cast away and sitting on a chair you will chuck. And let’s not forget ’tis the season to show friends and family our love through gifts of future garbage. When I die, just feed me into an industrial waste grinder.

But for now, we live! We are alive and we are exploring an island of garbage in the free Mundo Lixo [Itch page]. It’s really quite good. Read the rest of this entry »

Brief Karate Foolish will fulfill your dream of fighting as a half-nude Japanese man

The motto of Brief Karate Foolish [official site] ran through Google Translate is: “First of all, discard reason. Everything is from then!” This free “super real match fighting game,” is all about the majesty and grace of brief-wearing Japanese men fighting to the death for a mystical pair of black briefs. That sounds like a typical Friday night for me, only I’d prefer to wear a unicorn head to top off the ensemble. Read the rest of this entry »

Quick, Draw! And have a neural net guess what it is

I’ve lost entire afternoon’s to GeoGuessr, hitting the button again and again to teleport to a random place in the world in Google Streetview and then try to work out where I am from the scenery. Now I’ve spent a similarly long afternoon making Google do the guessing. Quick, Draw![ official site] is a sort-of game, sort-of web tool in which you doodle images upon request and a neural network tries to guess what it is you’re drawing. Come, play, abandon productivity. Read the rest of this entry »
