Adventures With Anxiety is free and good

Adventures With Anxiety is a free work of interactive fiction by Nicky Case. It's about Sergeant Jack Magnum, elite leader of the deadly facepunch squad. Or it's about anxiety, whatever. You play as the anxiety. It's a little red dog that clings to its human like a raincoat, but detaches when it detects danger it must warn them about. It'll take about half an hour…

Batman is free in both Lego and Arkham flavours on the Epic Games Store

Light the candles, roast the goose, Father Epic has come to town. Bearing gifts of cost-free games, he's telling tale of a masked menace from a far-off metropolis. Clad in black and the cowl of a bat - what delightful nonsense! For the younger children, a toy-like series of marvels await in the Lego Batman trilogy. Ah, and for you older rascals, the Arkham series…

Rockstar launch their own Launcher, offering GTA San Andreas for free

Just when the Epic Games Launcher seemed like it might have been the final salvo in the launcher wars, along come Rockstar Games with a launcher of their own. The imaginatively-named Rockstar Games Launcher lets you launch Rockstar Games games, and also buy them. Okay? And? Why would I want that? Well, Rockstar are hoping to tempt people to install it by initially offering 2004's…

American Election is a harrowing political horror

American elections take exactly one hundred years, and by the final day everyone's so sick of it that they just vote for the most recognisable name to get it over with. American Election, on the other hand, is a work of interactive fiction that estimates its own run time at one hour, but if you're anything like me you'll take at least two, and then…

An Afternoon Rippling wants to take you on a very peculiar hike

An indie fusion band invites you to practice in the shallows of a lake. Two stoners ask for advice in a chess game. Partygoers deep in a cave believe they hear a ghost when you talk. I haven't been hiking in a long, long time, but if this is what it involves these days then maybe it's time to strap on those walking boots. If…

Abzû and The End Is Nigh are free on the Epic Games Store now

Occupying two very different spots on the spectrum of digital emotions, Abzû and The End Is Nigh are the latest games being given away free on the Epic Games Store. Abzû is a calm and colourful undersea adventure with lots of pretty sealife to gawp at. The End Is Nigh is a platformer with hundreds upon hundreds of deaths awaiting you.

Inside and Celeste are free on the Epic Games Store now

"Inside does insert some big ideas into its slender and sinister frame, but that's not why I loved it – it's the execution of the big, broad, b-movie elements that I adored," our former Adam (RPS in peace) said when we called Inside one of 2016's best games. "It's a tricky platform game, with a beautifully melancholy story, and enough creativity on show to give…

Dirt Rally is free for keepsies right now

You love cars? You love mud? Your twin desires combine in Dirt Rally, the 2015 Codemasters race 'em up which is currently free for keepsies on the Humble Store. They launched their 'End Of Summer Sale' today and are slinging keys around (Steam, not car) to tempt you into taking a look. Codies did launch Dirt Rally 2 earlier this year but that one's £45,…

Explore a pretty pastel city in Drive Me To The Moon

I didn’t understand the appeal of driving around for the fun of it until the exact moment that I laid eyes on Drive Me To The Moon, a game which is all about cruising the open road with your girlfriend in the passenger seat. Suddenly, yes, I would quite like to just hop in a car and explore around here. And maybe get out to…

Stones Of Solace offers up a free daily crafting ritual

Just looking at ritual crafting game Stones Of Solace lowers my blood pressure. The fuzzy, dreamlike edges to the items. The daily shifting of the colour palettes. The gentle, beach-y music to keep you company. It’s all a much-needed breath of fresh air on a hot weekend. Here is a very pretty trailer to soak in.

Free hat game! Fez is free on Epic’s Store right now, with Celeste and Inside coming next week

You could put together a decent indie games showcase for nothing just by loading the Epic Games Store and clicking a button. The current freebie on there is Polytron's excellent, world bending puzzle-platformer, Fez. It's definitely worth the zero doubloons they’re asking for it. In fact, it’s worth at least 100,000,000 times that. Fez is great.

Mutant Year Zero and Hyper Light Drifter free on Epic Games Store

Another week, another free game on the Epic Games Store - two, even. Until next Thursday you can grab the tip-top tactical action of Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and the top-down zip-zoom explore-o-action of Hyper Light Drifter for free. MYZ is a wild freebie, both because it came out less than one year ago and because it's chuffing lovely. Our former Alec (RPS…

Melon-twisting puzzler Gnog is free on the Epic Games Store

"Gnog is absolutely spellbinding and charming in its daft, joyful silliness," our former John (RPS in peace) said in his Gnog review when it finally came out last year. A big fan of twiddling and twisting and tugging heads to see the secrets they hold, that one. And in the game. Gnog hands us playful puzzleheads to open up, look inside, fiddle with, and eventually…

Au Fil De L’eau is a striking picture-book excursion, and free

"Leave your apartment and go on an adventure," asks Au Fil De L'eau. I'd love to, mate. Getting out of the flat and popping off into a gently warm Parisian evening? That sounds just the ticket. But this is the grey north. We've got Portobello, not Paris. I suppose I could split the difference and hitch a ride down the canal in a discarded shopping…

This War Of Mine and Moonlighter are both free on Epic this week

Epic Games started out giving away one free game per fortnight to lure people into their new Store. Then they moved to weekly giveaways. Now, this week, they have two games free for keepsies. I don't know where this acceleration of freebies ends, but I can tell you that you have seven days to grab This War Of Mine and Moonlighter.

Feature: Is there such a thing as too much Freeman?

Modder Superior: Sven Co-op

We've seen how much damage one theoretical physicist can do. Sven Co-op lets you unleash the vortex of chaos of a dozen Free Men (and women) upon Half-Life. Once just a mod enabling you to play the classic FPS with pals, it received Valve's blessings to go free and standalone on Steam in 2016, bundled with a free copy of the original Half-Life re-tooled for multiplayer.…

John Wick (unofficially) becomes a free 8-bit platformer

Back in my day, every action movie worth its salt spawned a licensed 8-bit platformer. Granted, most were rubbish, but it's a bit of a lost art. What would John Wick's look like? A lot like the picture above. You might have seen pixel Keanu doing the rounds back in May thanks to a mockup video by the developers of Blazing Chrome, but now you…
