Free game of the day

Kathy Rain is free on Steam. I haven’t played that one. Looks old school and interesting and it’s not Wadjeteye made.

I bought it today on sale for $2.99. Looks interesting. Free would be better of course :slight_smile: But even for the effort I think it’s worth much more that.

Age of Wonders 3 is free on Humble.

I bought it on GOG a while back but never really got around to playing it.

A very fun and very playable fan remake of Rescue on Fractalus
(aka Behind Jaggi Lines for some of us)

It’s been around/in development for quite some time, but only recently mentioned by @David himself.

It took me a few minutes to assign the joystick controls (they were all on joystick 0 instead of joystick 1 for some weird reason), but once that was done… WHOOOSH! Saving pilots and shooting saucers and turrets on an alien planet like it is 1984!

Not bad at all! Judging by the first 10 minutes…

Layers of Fear seems to be free on that E-mutter, mutter store. It’s a reasonably effective creepy atmosphere walking simulator.

A prologue for Lust From Beyond is now free on Steam. It’s about 40-60 minutes and the story is a closed one (though it’s a part of a bigger thing obviously). I did sounds for this game. Trailer and music in the trailer was also my job, so I’m very happy to see this available for everyone (well, adults). It’s an adventure game but a modern one, so more like a walking simulator. I think it’s cool, but don’t trust me, check it out if you’re into lovecraftian horror.

The wolf among us (Telltale) free until Thursday

The Wolf Among Us is easily my favorite Telltale game, although perhaps I should add that I’d read all of the Fables comics a few years before that game was announced. But I’m not a big Fables fan by any means; I think the comics range from okay to decent.

There’ll be nothing surprising in there gameplay-wise if you’re familiar with the Walking Dead formula, but I think it’s by far the best Telltale implementation of it.

I’ve mentioned this before:

Different kind of game this time, but gets 90% on metacritic. Free for just 24 hours…

So let’s say 2 stars out of 5. :angel:

Sometimes there are very valid negative reviews and some @#@# comes along saying things like “this game has fifty thousand percent on metacritic, how dare you deviate.”

I have actually been eying this game a little bit. Advance Wars is great. However, this review kept me from it. Incidentally, it’s on sale on GOG right now for €5: https://www.gog.com/game/into_the_breach (if you read this tomorrow and are interested)
