A Hat In Time’s new DLC is free today and turns up the heat on an arctic cruise

A Hat In Time might play second fiddle to Super Mario Odyssey these days, but there's strong praise in that faint damning. Gears For Breakfast crafted a cheerful, bouncy little romp of a platformer, full of shiny gubbins to grab and strange characters to meet. It's just a little on the short and easy side - or was. Seal The Deal adds another story chapter…

Live three days of surreal plague-stricken hell in Pathologic 2’s free public alpha

Bleak, harrowing and frustrating are the first words I think of when Ice-Pick Lodge's Pathologic springs to mind - followed quickly by entrancing, alien and compelling. Originally Kickstarted as a remake, the now-reimagined plague survival immersive sim Pathologic 2 is shaping up to be something special. Not convinced? If you don't mind some bugs, you can try it out today. Earlier in development, Ice-Pick released The Marble Nest,…

Battlefield 1 goes cheap as chips and its DLC Premium Pass is free to keep this week

Battlefield 5's open beta is over, but the battle for objective points is eternal. As promised last week, EA have made the DLC Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free today and for the next week. You'll need the game itself to use it, but it expands the (questionably) historical World War 1 FPS from 12 multiplayer maps to 26, featuring new classes, vehicles and weaponry.…

Hundreds of free games with only a few bits missing from the GMTK 2018 game jam

There's so much we take for granted in game design, which makes it all the more fun when designers find ways to completely bypass genre norms. Inspired by Snake Pass's platforming minus a jump button, the Game Maker's Toolkit 2018 Jam gave entrants two days to make a game with a fundamental part missing and worked around. The theme of the jam: "Genre without Mechanic", explained by GMTK…

Feature: Free games to love and share

Priceless Play – September 1st 2018

Hey, RPS. Things are a bit different in this space! My name is Kat, and I’m a writer and academic out of sunny southern California, taking over the Free Games of the Week column from the inimitable Jupiter Hadley. I’m a PhD student, so I love a game that doesn’t overstay its welcome. I teach game design, so I love a game with a solid…

Grab yourself a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine on Humble

What's short, sweet, dumb as a sack of Imperial servo-hammers and free for the next 48 hours? Relic's Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, that's what. For the next two days you can grab this neat little third-person shoot n' slasher completely free via Humble, and keep it forever, although they do ask that you sign up for their newsletter in exchange for the goods. Despite Alec's faintly…

Behind Every Great One addresses household sexism

You might know developers Deconstructeam from games like The Red Strings Club, or Gods Will Be Watching, or from that time that they cloned themselves to satisfy Alice B’s burning curiosity about what happens when one meets one’s doppelganger. Anyway, they just released a short little game called Behind Every Great One, which began life as a prototype created for the Ludum Dare game jam,…

Feature: The bus stops here

Free games of the week – August 18th 2018

This week we've got a mix of low impact games that'll help you chill out as the recent heatwave continues to collapse in on itself. Become a slightly melancholy chair that explores a strangely-staged house full of objects. Explore further: an electric planet, or perhaps an old bus stop close to your home might be a better option for you. To top it off, we…

Surveillance ’em up Orwell is free for keepsies right now

Yeah man, I love the 80s. Blasting Sisters Of Mercy out my boombox as I cycle round town on my Raleigh Lizard with Kellogg's Corn Flakes reflectors on the spokes, doing the electric boogaloo in front of the telescreen like a good citizen, getting wrecked with the lads down the Chestnut Tree Café, then waking up with my head strapped into a cage of ravenous…

Live the gritty cyber espionage life in free parody ENHANCE.COMPUTER

It's a scene we've all seen a hundred times. The tech-savvy cop hunches over an all-too-bright monitor in a darkened room. There's a reflection in a mirror in a blurry photo, and it's the last clue to cracking this case. Only gritty and realistic use of modern technology can get to the bottom of this crime. "Zoom. Move right. Enhance!". And the image comes into…

Dusty tactical FPS Insurgency is free to keep for the next two days

While I'll never be fully comfortable playing games set in the contemporary forever-war continually in the background of modern life, I must admit that Insurgency is a solid little shooter. Originally based on the Source mod of the same name, it offers realistic class-based tactical manshootery both competitive and co-op. For the next two days, it's free to grab in order to promote its upcoming…

Feature: It's not you, it's us

Free games of the week – August 11th 2018

Another week packed full of new releases and interesting games, all placed on the internet for free! You can play a story-driven puzzle platformer, where you and your trusty cube must figure out what is going on in a spaceship. You could attempt to be a rhythmic orc, dancing through a dungeon and taking selfies along the way. If neon worlds without characters are something…

Endless Space 2 and Endless Legend’s endless Endless expansions are out now

It's a busy day for 4X fans. Announced just last week, new expansions have launched today for both space-empire builder Endless Space 2 and its more gravity-bound cousin Endless Legend. They're both excellent games (Endless Legend was RPS's Game Of The Year of 2014) that have only gotten better over time due to constant expansion & patching. Now seems a good time to give them…

Free games of the week – July 28th 2018

This week, I bring you a jumble of both fun and meaningful experiences. We have a skeleton dance party where you must summon your skeletons and dance your way across the room. We have a space rat looking for their lost lunchbox on alien planets full of funky creatures. Then, on the more serious side of things, we have a man managing a hotel that…

Free 3D platform roguelike To The Core is an impressive student project

Created by students at the NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, To The Core is your free game du jour. A very slick-looking 3D platformer with procedurally generated levels and a focus on speedrunning. While not without issue, it's a solid reminder that the gap between amateur and professional in the games industry narrows with every passing year. The game is out…

Free games of the week – July 21st 2018

Want to challenge a demonic possession to see if you can help free a town from the horrors that lurk in the dark? Or maybe bond with your enemy as you make the long journey to his death?

In roguelike chess adventure Chogue you hunt the king

I move the pawn on the far right side forward two spaces. That's my go-to starting move. It frees up my castle guy. I know many things about the Chess, including the names of all the pieces. Like Castle and Horsey and Pointyhat. I know things. That's why I know that something has gone wrong when the Kingperson piece on my opponents side of the…

Hacknet is free for keepsies if you nab it promptly

When Hacknet's tutorial told me I needed to kill its process in order to progress, I couldn't bring myself to do it. Not out of sympathy for a sentient piece of software - this isn't Hackmud. I'm reasonably confident the tutorial was just a lifeless bit of code, I just couldn't do it because I'm a terrible hacker who can't tell a firewall from a…
