Free Loaders: Catching up with your past self

One game this week (pictured above) is about physically chasing your own trail to catch your past self in a dancey “worm hole of time-space frequency”. I once encountered my past self. He sent me an email through some sort of delayed electronic delivery service. On the morning of my 20th birthday I checked my inbox to find a poorly-written message from 2004 in which my schoolboy self laughed at me because he had “no worries ’bout money, education or any of that stuff”. What a brat. Well the joke’s on him. I don’t need money when I’ve got free games!

Watch the world end in Defcon VR’s virtual war room

If you fancy a break from watching the crawl towards nuclear annihilation live on TV, you can now jack into virtual reality and watch it sped-up in Defcon VR [official site]. Introversion Software today launched the free VR doodad, which lets goggheads enter a virtual war room to spectate matches in the nuclear war RTS Defcon. Our Adam will tell you Defcon is one of the best strategy games, and I… don’t disagree but don’t have the stomach to play again. Watching wars with your chums in cyberspace seems deliciously wicked and fitting for something so awful. Read the rest of this entry »

Help an old lady and bug a cat in quiet short story Reel

I spent a pleasant rainy evening with an elderly woman the other day in Reel [Itch page], exploring her workplace, fiddling with the environment, startling a cat, and occasionally helping her as some sort of benevolent cursorspirit. It’s a nice little short story, quiet and pretty, and it’s free t’boot. No dialogue, no text, just a nice quiet time poking around and helping out. Read the rest of this entry »

Free Loaders: Rock out with the Lonely Geologists

We’ve got some rockin’ free games for you in this week’s round-up. You might think I’m talking boulderdash, but trust me, these games are really gneiss. From stone-cold killers with the ability to swap bodies at will, to a poor sap who has been granite the power of VHS vision. Don’t worry, we’ve cobbled together a list for you. Come and marble at them all. I will stop doing these rock gags if you pumice not to slate them.

Have You Played… Crown and Council?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Don’t be tricked by the name, Crown and Council has nothing to do with monarchy or getting questionable advice from Cromwellian figures in black. Instead, it’s all about itty bitty expansionism on random maps, painting the tiny world your colour because your colour is the best colour. God bless the Blue nation. Death to the Orange interlopers. Death to all the interlopers. Read the rest of this entry »

Co-op puzzler We Were Here released free

Puzzling with pals can be a lark, which I suppose may be why escape rooms are all the rage nowadays. Personally, I believe it’s people expressing subconscious desire to be trapped away from everything forever in a box in space/the future/a zombie apocalypse, but I’m no Dr. Ruth. Perhaps you’d like to join a buddy in an abandoned castle for a spot of thunking in free co-op first-person puzzler We Were Here [official site]. Separated in different parts of the castle but keeping in contact with walkie-talkies, pairs must pool their clues and get puzz-puzz-puzzling. Read the rest of this entry »

Free Loaders: Dictator tower defence & hookshot cars

There is no greater love than that of free games. It is the purest love. The most generous love. The filthiest love. You try to hide it, but I know this love consumes you and constricts your bosom like an over-passionate anaconda. Don’t worry, you’re among friends here. We love free games too, and every week we bring you more. Think of us as your matchmaker. Your sordid, seedy matchmaker. Free games for the playing!
