  • Play God With Otters: Free Lake Simulator Among Ripples

    … near me, wondering if I’d even notice if it plucked off a numbed toe, and last week I think I kicked a fish. Obviously, I’m delighted to find lake ecosystem simulator Among Ripples free on Steam. It’s a small, quiet, and simple little sandbox about poking at a waltercolour-picturesque lake’s ecoystem, fiddling with the water and adding life…

  • Freeware Garden: Riser

    … Getting really good at tough action games is something that rarely happens to me. To be brutally honest, it has only happened once during my childhood with Manic Miner, many years later with VVVVVV and a few days ago with Riser. Now, I am not certain as to why this simple, procedural platformer really got to me, nor why I really got it, but I…

  • Be A Cybergumshoe In Free Adventure Game Precipice

    … By Alice O'Connor on January 23rd, 2015 at 8:00 am. Precipice starts bloody and ends abruptly. That sounds like life in the cyberpunk future to me all right! It’s a free adventure game about a weary private cyberdick called in to consult on a bloody murder case involving a synthetic lady, poking around at evidence and drawing a conclusion…

  • First-Person Platformer: Free Wait ‘Em Up Endless Express

    … By Alice O'Connor on January 22nd, 2015 at 12:00 pm. Writing about Train Simulator’s pretty Japanese countryside DLC this morning reminded me: I forgot to post Endless Express last year. It’s a free game about a convoluted train journey through a magical world to get home, consulting timetables and planning changes to catch the right trains…

  • Freeware Garden: Providence

    … Having hidden a package delivered by a stranger, shot someone I never got to talk to, snuck into a hotel room and listened to lovely renditions of Chopin’s wonderful music, I can safely say that you will not get bored with Providence. It may be a brief adventure with barely a puzzle in it and an only mildly intriguing (though definitely…

  • Buddy, You’re A Vampire Slayer: Nosgoth Open Beta Open

    … By Alec Meer on January 22nd, 2015 at 9:59 am. Fighty multiplayer vampire title Nosgoth (official site) has gone even more free to play than it already was. I.e. anyone is now free to play it, as it’s just moved into open beta. I hadn’t really been paying attention to this, because the words ‘Legacy of Kain universe’ cause me to question…

  • Freeware Garden: Adams Drive 32

    … Corporation, a shooter the world outside Europe came to know as Cyber-Cop, was one of the first FPS games in the modern sense and, though it’s nowadays quite a chore to play through, it still looks lovely. Its flat shaded environments still work beautifully and also happen to be what stealth-‘em-up Adams Drive 32 instantly reminded me…

  • Cure Me Good: Bullfrog’s Theme Hospital Free On Origin

    … is currently free on Origin, see, but I can’t go pop the balloonoid noggins of people suffering Bloaty Head or mock people in blue suede shoes with King Complex because ugh I have to write a thing for the Internet about how Theme Hospital is a great game and free on Origin right now. Unbelievable. Theme Hospital is a great game, mind. It’s a fine Bullfrog…

  • Theme Hospital ‘On The House’ On Origin

EA have brought a new game to their ‘On The House’ page on Origin, and this time it’s the turn of the classic Bullfrog hospital management game, Theme Hospital. Theme Hospital was originally released for the PC back in 1997, and saw you having to build and maintain a hospital, curing all kinds…

  • Freeware Garden: Astrox

    … Wow. Having failed to play Elite: Dangerous and having recently been told that ignoring such games as EVE Online was criminally silly, I had forgotten just how compelling open world space trading and combat games can get. And, unprepared like this, I ran into Astrox and barely made all the deadlines I was supposed to. So, after what must have…

  • Have You Played… Catacomb 3-D?

    …), but there’s a little bit more to pay attention to. This is a fantasy setting (albeit one with ‘nukes’) rather than a military or sci-fi one, and it has you worrying about stockpiling heals, replenishing spells and even destroying bits of wall to progress. Don’t get me wrong, there ain’t a lot to it, but it’s fascinating to revisit some…

  • Silent Hill Source Engine Fan Game Alchemilla Released

    … games. Still, I will be returning. The creators say they had wanted weapons and combat in Alchemilla, but couldn’t find help to do it right. I’m okay with it not having any. P.T. is the spookiest Silent Hill game in yonks, and that does perfectly fine without. I’m a little tired of wonky survival horror combat, or survival horror combat that isn’t…
