The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit review

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…

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,…

Feature: Flip burgers and fight the undead

Free games of the week

Recover from the rampant commercialism of E3 with some free games! Below you'll find a puzzle game about love and making the right connection, a wacky platformer where you are a hatched human looking to get to the castle, and an interactive poem explaining why one person cries. If those concepts don’t pique your interest, you can run a restaurant and fight off zombies at…

LawBreakers is free from now until the servers shut off

I feel genuinely sorry for the folks at Boss Key Productions. By all accounts, LawBreakers wasn't the game that they wanted to make, but they still delivered a pretty polished arena shooter that just never found the audience it was looking for. Publisher Nexon America are keeping the lights on until September, and in order to give the game a proper sendoff, the formerly retail…

Layers Of Fear is free for keepsies right nooOooOow

A houseful of hauntings can be had for free right now, as Bloober Team are giving away Layers Of Fear for keepsies for the next few days on Steam. It's a first-person spooker about a kooky-ooky painter who goes out his gourd trying to paint his masterpiece. Layers Of Fear is often a grab bag of clichés--dolls, shadowy figures crossing corridors ahead of you, jumpscares…

The exhibition rumbles on, and so we’re back with three free for E3 to suggest some games that you can play while waiting for release dates that seem oh so far away. And, as a bonus, these are all available at no cost whatsoever! Instead of Forza Horizon 4, play...

For the past two years, we’ve run a series showcasing some of the best games that you can enjoy right now for no cost instead of hyping up an upcoming blockbuster release.

For Honor marches into Chinese history with four new warriors and a 4v4 siege mode

Brutal medieval axe grinder For Honor is getting four new Chinese warriors as part of an update called Marching Fire, Ubisoft have said at their E3 announce-a-thon. It's also getting a new 4v4 game mode about besieging castles, as well as a to-be-revealed "endless" singleplayer mode and some equally unknown two-player co-op stuff. The game's cut-down Starter Edition is free for keepsies right now too.…

Roguelikelike FPS Ziggurat is free right now on GOG

Enough of this 'E3' and its video games tomorrow; what about video games today? Reader, I have good news: not only are a number of video games out and playable right now (at least one hundred, I'm told) a great one is being given away free for the next two days. GOG are continuing their summer sale celebrations with free copies of Ziggurat, 2014's wizardly…

Quake Champions is free if you get it now (or much later)

I've never been a Quaker. I've always thought a life spent pursuing peace and friendship through a religious lens was at odds with the Quaker's requirement that you spend 5 hours of every day playing a version of Id Software's hyper-violent shooter, but I won't pretend to understand such ecclesiastical matters. I just got myself all tangled up over something that's quite simple, now that…

Cute pulp sci-fi defensive shooter Fortified is free today

How about a little something to unwind for the evening with? A charming looking free game tickle your fancy? Fortified has apparently been around on Steam early 2016, but it managed to fly entirely under my radar. A crying shame, because it looks like Orcs Must Die spliced with Mars Attacks. Developer Clapfoot (working on the currently-in-early-access Foxhole) have opted to just give it away for free…

GOG’s Summer Sale opens with a Xenonauts giveaway

Maybe my perception of time is getting a bit wonky in my old age, but didn't we just finish Spring Sale season a week or two ago? No matter - cheap games are always in style. GOG's summer sale opens with a giveaway of Goldhawk Interactive's solid X-Com tribute Xenonauts. GOG also asked us to pick a few favourites from the sale, so check out our…
