Transistor free on Epic Games Store right now

Transistor is free for the next two weeks on the Epic Games Store and it is my humble opinion that you should be playing it right now, because it is a gem. Currently my favourite of Supergiant Games's all-excellent lineup (with wizard-sportsball adventure Pyre a very close second), it's part action RPG, part turn-based tactical combat, and all classy. Set in a jazzy art-deco cyberworld,…

Assassin’s Creed Unity goes free in honour of Notre-Dame

Notre-Dame cathedral is closed for renovation for the foreseeable future, but Ubisoft are offering everyone the opportunity to appreciate it (and clamber around it) free in Assassin's Creed Unity. From now until next Thursday, April 25th, the game is free to grab and keep forever here. Set in Paris, 1789, it offers a more co-op focused spin on the series, but was plagued by bugs…

Wolfenstein 3D spawns three strange new games this week

It has been a bizarrely busy week for Wolfenstein 3D mods. In the past six days, there's been three impressive total conversions released for the great grandaddy of the modern FPS, two of which are entirely standalone. We've got pirates in The Golden Parrot, we've got vampires in Project X: Insurrection and we've got a bizarre tribute to an even more bizarre DOS game in…

Kards deploys to the early access front-line

Another day, another free-to-play collectable card game, but Kards does well to set itself apart from the Hearthstone and Magic-inspired pack. Developed by 1939 Games, this one fully commits to its World War 2 setting, with faded cards bearing authentic propaganda poster art and a soundtrack featuring old jazz played through a gramophone. While the goal is familiar enough - bring the enemy HQ down…

Axiom Soccer kicks off into free-to-play early access

If I were uncharitable, I could churlishly describe Axiom Soccer as free-to-play Rocket League with guns. Fortunately, developers Earthbound Games seems to have some clever ideas of their own, plus it reminds me a lot of old Quake 2 mod QPong. Launching into early access today, it supports 3v3 online play, up to 2v2 local play, and matches against bots. Players zip about an arena…

Kirby makes climbing Celeste mountain look easy in Ingeste

It's the middle of the week, it's time to unwind a little, so let's take a stroll back up the spike-lined paths of Celeste mountain, but this time as Kirby. Ingeste, by EX.ULT VIDEOTAINMENT is a free, browser-friendly mod of the original Celeste for Pico-8 starring HAL Laborotory's famously friend-shaped pink puffball. It's a cute little subversion of a Matt Thorson's tough platformer, letting you float…

The Witness goes free on the Epic Games Store for two weeks

Whether you feel that The Witness is slightly or enormously pretentious, three things are undeniable: It contains a lot of puzzles, it's lovely to look at, and it's the Epic Games Store's new fortnightly giveaway. Developed by Jonathan Blow's (Braid) studio Thekla, it's part Myst, part jumbo puzzle book. In the game, your sole method of interaction with its lovely landscapes is to draw lines,…

Escaped Chasm is a short, sad, free story by Undertale’s artist

While it's easy to think of Undertale (and its follow-up, Deltarune) as a one-man project, there's a very talented team behind it. Today, artist Temmie Chang released a small game, Escaped Chasm, a short story about a sad young girl alone in her house, haunted by dreams of a magical world. It's heartfelt, full of great art, some very good full-screen animations, and even crams…

Love Thyself – A Horatio Story is a free, real, Endless Space dating sim

I've always liked how Amplitude set their games in the same universe. From Endless Space to Endless Legend, whether their games are flavoured sci-fi or fantasy, each one forms an act in a space opera that spans millennia. Surprise! The latest act came out yesterday. It's a free visual novel where you play as a fresh clone in the Horatio empire, a people born from…

Feature: Doom mods: The Next Generation

Modder Superior: The many free descendants of Doom

Here is a riddle for you. When is Doom not Doom? Why, when its open-source code has gone through countless iterations and become a modern development platform in its own right! Sometimes a Doom mod outgrows its old home and breaks away as a completely standalone game. This week I'm bringing you an all-you-can-eat buffet of free, full games (and some demos) that are the…

Morrowind goes free today to celebrate The Elder Scrolls turning 25

To celebrate a quarter-century of Elves, Daedra and cat-people with bafflingly complex lore, Bethesda are giving away The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind today (March 25th) only, so snap it up quickly here. You'll need a Bethesda.net account and their launcher to grab the game, too. A bit of a hassle, but you're getting a sprawling adventure through a deeply alien corner of Tamriel, filled with…

Feature: Defense is superior to opulence

Priceless Play – 25 March

One of my favourite facts about British culture versus US culture is that what North Americans call "bumper cars," Brits call "dodgems." Where the Brits dodge, Americans bump. Is there any better metaphor than that? As my friend Sean Bean likes to tell me every so often: “Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack.” Good old Sean, he's quoting Sun…

XCOM 2 is free this weekend (and DLC discounts a-go-go too)

Standard-issue XCOM 2 is probably my least-favourite of the four different flavours of XCOM now available to us (i.e. including the Enemy Within and War Of The Chosen expansions), but that's a bit like saying I don't enjoy 29 degrees of heat quite as much as 26, 27 and 28 degrees. They're all great! Make it like that all the time, please. Only, y'know, without…

Oxenfree and Tacoma are free right now

Not every problem in games needs to be solved by shooting, stabbing or going very fast. Sometimes you just need to stop, listen and talk things over, like in Oxenfree and Tacoma, two lovely story-driven games that you can snag free right now and keep forever. Contemporary teen ghost story Oxenfree by Night School is the current fortnightly giveaway over on the Epic store, full…

Feature: Leaving on a jet plane

Priceless Play – 16 March 2019

Greetings from Terminal 2 of the Los Angeles International Airport! I'm seated in one of the ubiquitous hybrid chair/benches which grace all airport terminals across our great planet gearing up for a ten-and-a-half hour flight. Hooray! Like many people, the thing I love most in the world is shuffling into a gigantic airborne tube with numerous strangers for an extended period of time. (Bonus: I…

Dead Or Alive 6 puts four fighters in the ring for free today

Dead Or Alive 6 is the latest fighting game to offer a cut-down free-to-play version on PC - a big demo, if you will. Koei Tecmo launched the full game two weeks ago, but today's Core Fighters edition of DOA6 gives players access to four characters - Kasumi, Hitomi, Diego and Bass - and several play modes, including the DOA Quest mode and the character-customising…

Pawnbarian blends chess smarts and deck-building tension

Every year, the 7 Day Roguelike Challenge spawns a few gems. One of the most consistently intriguing development jams around, it's exactly what it sounds like - seven days to develop a roguelike. This year's entries are in, and while voting on the winners is still ongoing, I'm throwing in a nomination for Pawnbarian by "j4nw", a stylish, clever little browser game that mashes Chess…

Semi-classic racer Grid 2 is free for keepsies

Codemasters' 2013 racer Grid 2 is a fairly geriatric entry in the car-wot-goes-fast pantheon - so old that RPS's prior coverage of it was written by the impossibly ancient likes of Rossignol, J. and Smith, A. - but we sure did like it back then. I've just been back in and, yeah, it still looks and feels dang good for a non-car-gonk like me. Its…

Kyle Seeley's Emily Is Away series feel like interactive time capsules. An all-too-vivid recollection of what social media felt like, and how it affected the lives of people back in the day. In the upcoming third instalment Emily Is Away <3, Players have to say goodbye to AOL Instant Messenger and begin their descent into the only slightly invasive (at the time) vortex that is…
