Free Loaders: ░░░░░ Videogames ░░░ Are Everything

The ephemeral collective of videogame burpers who hang out on the internet have decided to host a jam inspired by the myriad game ideas coughed up by Pippin Barr, aka

░░░░ That Man

░Who Does This

Considering most of Barr’s ideas take hold within milliseconds and are gone just as quickly, it’s no surprise that the resultant games are rapidfire squiggles of code and colour, ready to be played, scrunched up and thrown inaccurately at the nearest wastepaper bin. But that’s the way we like it at Free Loaders. So here’s some of the best games from the jam.

A Beyond Good Offer: Beyond Good & Evil Is Free

Seems like we post about how Beyond Good & Evil 2 is/is not coming every six months or so. HAPPY FACE! Oh no but SADFACE! And so forth. What we don’t often do is talk about the Beyond Good & Evil game that does really, truly, honestly, no honestly exist. Its beloved nature is so often discussed only in terms of frustration that it never saw a sequel. Well, now’s the time to establish a) why so many people still bang on about Michael ‘Rayman’ Ancel’s jumpy-thumpy adventure and b) whether they should still in good conscience be doing so. Ubisoft have made the whole kit’n’kaboodle free for a few days. Read the rest of this entry »

Free Loaders: Launching Devil Daggers Into Space

There was a GameBoy jam this week and everything has gone slightly green. Sprites have taken over the free games mines and are playing non-stop chiptune down there. I can barely show my face in all my regular cyberspots because I’m just not pixellated enough. It was difficult to get you a haul of free games this week, is what I’m saying. So you’d better appreciate this bag of goodies.

Here’s the first one – a hot mess of planet-jumping, bomb-throwing arcade action. It’s a passionate mash-up of Devil Daggers and Mario Galaxy. Don’t say I’m not at the top of my curation game, because I am the undisputed king. Look upon my warez, ye mighty, and despair.

Keep Forever: Dungeon Keeper Is Free Right Now

The original Dungeon Keeper [Origin page] is free for a limited time, through Origin.

First released in 1997, Dungeon Keeper is a strategy game in which you manage an underground lair, protecting your treasures and killing invading adventurers. Alec thinks it’s rather good.

Free Loaders: Escape The Invaded City Of Santa Luz

Free Loaders on a Tuesday? That’s right. We don’t follow your rigid social structure here at RPS, man. We’re rule-breakers, rebels, mavericks. We follow the beat of our own cholesterol-clogged hearts. If we want to give you a list of the best free games of the past week on a Tuesday instead of a Saturday, then gorb dormit that’s what we’ll do. You’re not the boss of us.

Slayaway Camp Is A Cult Horror Puzzle Game

Slayaway Camp [official site] is a free game in which you play the killer in a collection of old VHS movies, slaughtering the hapless cuboid characters who are foolish enough to Kum Ba Yah and cuddle by the fires and hot springs of the titular camp. The whole thing is presented as an isometric puzzle game – you slide the killer around each level, trying to kill every victim without falling in a pit or trapping yourself between two obstacles. I hate puzzle games. Unless they’re also slasher films, apparently, because I can’t stop playing this.
