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…

Feature: The little hoover that could

Free games of the week

This week, you can stop being human and instead be some spectacular everyday objects. Become a fearless umbrella taking on a storm, or become a roomba looking for much more from life. If, rather than being a human or an object, you’d rather make humans then you can try building your own custom boyfriend – one that will love you no matter what, and be…

Dead Air is S.T.A.L.K.E.R’s best standalone megamod yet

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is still years away so here's a banquet of irradiated exploration and scavenging to tide you over. Dead Air is a standalone mega-mod (no purchase necessary) for bleak FPS sandbox series S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Built on top of the fan-upgraded OpenXRay engine and using Call of Chernobyl's massive world map, it offers an uncompromising but accessible survival sandbox that looks good and runs better than any similarly huge S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod out there.

Angelina is an AI that makes games, and now you can play some online

Have you heard the good word about Angelina? It's the spawn of AI researcher Mike Cook, which he describes as "an artificial intelligence-powered research project that designs videogames". He's been tinkering with different versions of the system for eight years now, and yesterday he uploaded a collection of Angelina's best hits to Itch. They're all free to check out, and for my money that's definitely…

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Ultimate Custom Night takes robo-horror to anarchic extremes

Scott Cawthon is an odd fellow. He started out making offbeat genre-blending RPGs before stumbling into wealth and fame with the Five Nights At Freddy's series. Several indie horror hits about surviving the night watch at a haunted animatronic pizza parlor, a line of official toys and a film in production later and what does he do? He goes back to making stuff for free.…

Battlefield 1 & 4 get another wave of free DLC giveaways

EA are retiring season passes for the Battlefield series starting with Battlefield V, and it seems that they're gradually making that change retroactive, at least in part. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 who only have the base games can pick up the Turning Tides and Second Assault expansions respectively for the always-reasonable price of free, although you'll need to grab them via…

Last Man Kicking makes office football interesting & free

I'll be the first to admit that football is not my thing. The World Cup? Baffling, honestly. Rocket League managed to make the concept of punting a ball into a net more enticing by adding jet-boosted RC cars to the mix, but I think Last Man Kicking might be what the doctor ordered today. A 2v2 office kickaround may not sound too interesting, but when everyone's glued…

Wot I Think: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

It’s Monday, and what better way to start the day than with a crunchy bowl of Honesty covered in ice cold, full fat Admissions of Failure: I have not played much Life Is Strange. I got about fifteen minutes into the first episode, the dialogue started to grate, and I zoned out. Controversial opinion maybe, but if you’re making a game about teenage girls, it…

Feature: Play more

Free games of the week

Run your own queer bar, full of people who just want to drink and have a good time during the 1920s! Host parties, allow drag queens to drink, watch fake marriages be celebrated in whichever way the couple wish. Or, play around with beautiful gems and cute birds, trying to make sure everyone is content and in place before moving onto a new level and…

Feature: The long development arm of the law

Police Stories is coming along nicely, but taking its time

When I last played Police Stories, I was pretty delighted by how much the two level alpha had to offer. So it was with somewhat mixed feelings that a year later I found myself playing a four level alpha - this feels like slow progress, albeit it with a graphical overhaul. And yet I am just as captured and occupied by the levels it has,…

Shadowrun Returns is free on the Humble store

If you’ve been following all of our Cyberpunk 2077 coverage and thinking it could really do with some Orcs, you’re in luck. No, CD Projekt Red isn’t injecting magic into their sci-fi RPG, but some magical cyberpunk is free on the Humble store right now. Shadowrun Returns can be yours for nothing at all, as long as you snatch it up in the next day.…

Ronimo announce Swords & Soldiers 2, give away the 1st

It's quickly becoming A Thing in some circles that when you announce a sequel, you just throw the original at people for free. That's definitely what Awesomenauts studio  Ronimo are doing today. Alongside the announcement a PC launch (it's been out on consoles for yonks) for silly side-scrolling strategy game Swords & Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon, they've made the original Swords and Soldiers HD free to grab…

Mojang’s Scrolls returns as Caller’s Bane, completely free

A multiplayer game shutting down is always a sad thing. No matter how small the community behind it, there was a community, and undoubtedly someone is going to lose their favourite game or - worse still - their favourite buddy online. As such, it brings a smile to my face to see that Mojang's ill-fated CCG/Hex-based strategy hybrid Scrolls has officially relaunched, albeit under a different name.…

Quake Champions extends its free giveaway to June 25th

It's been heartening to see Quake Champions doing so well. After the likes of LawBreakers failed to draw the crowds even during free beta events, was there even room in the market for an old-school arena shooter? Apparently so, as when Bethesda announced at E3 that the game was going free-to-play early (for a limited time), the servers filled up fast, and stayed full. They…

Cuisine Royale is battle royale about wearing a kitchen

We’ve all thought it: what if we could cover our entire body in Plunkbat’s stalwart frying pan? Why should we be limited to covering just our posterior, when surely the rest of us is just as in need of protection. That’s the premise behind Darkflow Software’s April Fools' gag, which has since been transformed into a proper game, Cuisine Royale. Hunt down 99 other people,…
