  • Freeware Garden: This Little Piggy…

    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 5 readers

    By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 10th, 2014 at 11:00 am. I had to play through a hundred or so Ludum Dare vignettes to discover This (particular) Little Piggy, but it was a little piggy worth caring for. A gorgeous first-person game in which you, a space hermit, must make a potato salad — though gathering that tasty, tasty bacon may be harder than it first appears.

    By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 19th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Subaltern Games, the radical game dev studio responsible for jolly world-destructing, money-making sim Neocolonialism, have apparently gone text mad and released the wordy, seriously bonkers and freeware RocketJumpIfication.

  • Freeware Garden: Powerglove

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 3 readers - By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 17th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Though a freeware release for Windows, Mac and Linux, the equally fresh Commodore 64 version of Powerglove is a commercial offering that even comes complete in its very own, very homebrew cartridge.
  • Freeware Garden: Sun God Star Bridge

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 4 readers - By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 12th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Back when I was young and impressionable I considered Space Harrier to be the apex of both 3D and shoot-’em-up gaming despite it, well, not being exactly 3D. Then again, when everything looks amazingly and thrilling a seven-year-old rarely cares for details. I cared only for blasting weird alien things.
  • Freeware Garden: The Lion’s Song

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 3 readers - By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 22nd, 2014 at 11:00 am. Besides being one of the best looking games of Ludum Dare 30, The Lion’s Song also happens to be one of the select few that sport really great writing. And an excellent core storytelling idea; one that has made for some classical short stories and, finally, for a wonderful short game about the quest for inspiration.
  • No Need For A Receipt: Receiver For Free

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 3 readers - By Adam Smith on September 16th, 2014 at 8:00 am. Receiver is a game with “a lot of buttons. A needless amount.” So says Graham, who also claims that the gun simulator is one of his favourite roleplaying games. A gun simulator is not a first-person shooter, just as QWOP is not a walking simulator, even though in some ways that’s precisely what QWOP is ...

  • Freeware Garden: It Moves

    …By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 18th, 2014 at 11:00 am. It Moves is a horror game made in RPG Maker and hence comes with some traditionally cute character sprites and a top-down perspective. Yes, I’m quite aware of the fact that this doesn’t sound terribly exciting, but please do trust me when I say that It Moves is one of the few games…

The latest Ludum Dare passed me by but the helpful tweets of a little bird in the guise of Tom Francis directed me toward the highest rated submission, Superdimensional. He described Superdimensional as being “like the most stylish possible Flappy Bird”, specifying that the tweet was meant…

    …By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on September 16th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Don’t get me wrong, I really do adore those big, ambitious freeware games incredibly kind people make for us, but I simply cannot understand how they manage it. Also, why? Why spend countless hours creating something most people will probably ignore and never get paid for it? Why…

    … QWOP is. Receiver isn’t a game about pointing and shooting, it’s a game about mechanisms – the gun as machine, with parts that require understanding and manipulation. For the next ten hours, Receiver is free as part of the current Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale. Go get. Originally created for as part of the 7-day FPS challenge, Receiver is one of my favourite recent games about guns, along with time-triggered shooter Super Hot.…
