Free games of the week

A mix of the fun and serious is what I am bringing to you in this week's roundup of great free games. We have wacky games about boxing and surgery, games requiring quick and precise movement, and a lovely adventure about someone looking to find a lost artifact. We then move into two more serious games: one about a girl trapped in a broken home,…

Indie Royale’s Evolved Bundle Emerges Onto Land

Bundle bundle bundlenews! Indie Royale have launched their latest, hoping to soak up the cash for another collection of out-turned pocketed developers. This time it's the Evolved Bundle, because, um, they've called it that. And it's a good-un. In there you've got the utterly splendid puzzler Unmechanical from Talawa Games (check out our review), Tale Of Tales' super-creepy The Path, Fatshark's latest, Krater, Turtle Cream's…

Staring At The Sea: Tale of Tales Return With Bientôt l’été

I dunno about that Citizen Kane of videogames nonsense, but one thing we definitely have is the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of videogames. Bring up the name Tale of Tales, most renowned/notorious for The Path, and you will be sure to spark a war. A war between those who believe games can be anything and those who believe games have to stick to a strict definition…

The End of The Road: The Path

I kept on meaning to Sunday Paper this, but seeing the amount of actual content in, I think it deserves a post. A year on from the controversial talking point of 2009, Tale of Tales do a really elaborate postmortem of their work. As well as the traditional look at the work itself, there's individual essays about each of the girls and their respective wolves.…

Splendindie-bundle on D2D

Direct 2 Drive have announced they're running and indie games bundle until Sunday. The bundle contains Democracy 2, Cogs, Zeno Clash, The Path, and Defence Grid. All great games. Which rather reveals the problem with the pack: you probably own a couple of these games already. Nevertheless, for those aberrant consumers among us, the deal is good. £11.50 for Britons, and $17.75 for North Americans.…

Are You Listening Carefully? The Path Demo Out

Not sure how we missed this. The ever-controversial and much previously discussed The Path have finally released a demo of the game. In fact, it's more than a demo - iit's actually a prologue to the game proper, especially created to give a sample of the atmosphere. In other words, almost certainly worth downloading for fans of the the full game as well as those…

Eurogamerated: The Path Review

A couple of weeks after the micro-furore which followed its launch, the good ship Eurogamer send me off to evaluate Tale of Tales' game of short horror and long walks. I start like this... "There's an urge to give it one out of ten. Maybe a two, because two sounds more genuine than one. One sounds like foot-stomping petulance. Two sounds considered, as if I…

In A Dark, Dark Wood: The Path Released

Tale of Tale's The Path is officially released today, and now available on Steam. Last week I wrote my impressions of the peculiarly evocative art project - trying to present a mixture of the opinions that formed in my brain, about a game that deserves attention/confusion. The twist on Little Red Riding Hood has you take six sisters on a journey through the woods on…

What Cruel Teeth You’ve Got: The Path Impressions

Tale of Tales' The Path comes out a week today. It's a unique game, almost stretching the use of the word "game" to describe it as such, in which you take one of six Little Red Riding Hoods through the woods, on her journey to Grandmother's house. However, simply completing this task is the shortest route the the game's ending - indeed, if anything, finishing…
