I am here to share with you the 2015 promo of the RadioShow, a few clips to wet your whistle to see how we are behind those microphones. ┬áIf you haven’t checked the show out you can find it on both iTunes and Podomatic–but here are the links and the video for your viewing pleasure!

Hello and welcome back to Free Games Friday, your source of all things free. It’s been quite awhile since I posted one of these, so I’m coming back with a vengeance with 9 brand spankin’ new games for you to enjoy.

 

yume-nikki-3d-2

So I was going to do a halloween themed week, but little known fact about me (or possibly a well known fact) is that I’m not very good with horror games. So that didn’t happen. I did decide to give you guys at least one horrorish game, which is this very well done 3D remake of a classic title: Yume Nikki. This game falls firmly into the “surreal” category, as you wander through the dreams of a young girl, collecting various effects and exploring the world within. While not a true horror game, the combination of the music and visuals serve very well at giving off an uneasy feeling, and you’ll keep going, wonder what awaits you around the next corner. This game can be downloaded by following the link here.

 

The Scorpion Box

This next game is a fun and somewhat random point and click game called The Scorpion Box. In this game, you have a turtle in a little box, and inside the box is a scorpion. Your goal is to retrieve the turtle and find a way to dispose of the scorpion without getting killed. With multiple endings and solutions, this one is sure to keep you guessing. You can play this game here.

 

flying-kick

Next up is a puzzle game known as Flying Kick. The goal of this game is to make it to the door at the end of every level. Your only method of travel is by… well, flying kicks. You have to use your limited movement options to make your way to the door, usually by stacking items and avoiding traps. This game can be played here.

Finally, The next set of games are kind of interesting. These games all utilize the same save file, under the program known as SHARECART1000, a game designing program that allows you to make some fun and fairly interesting games. I’ve only tried a couple of the games from these so far, but what I have played is really fun, and they are certain to add more games as time goes by. Do be warned though, due to all games using the same save file, you are require to have all your games in the same place. So just remember that when you extract the games, to put them all in the same folder. You can see all of the games that are currently out here, and they are sure to add more as the days go by.

 

 

That’s all there is for this week, hope you come back another time for some more free games.

Okay so there was only a week’s break but still. Welcome back to Free Games Friday, where you get free games and the developer gets the recognition for their hard work, so everybody wins! As usual I got two games for your enjoyment, and both of them are ones that you can play right in your browser (for once).

Pause Ahead

The first game is from the creator of the fairly well known Tower of Heaven, and it is entitled Pause Ahead. In this game you play as a mysterious young girl who wakes up with no memory or idea of where she is, and you have to go through a series of trials (yes it sounds kind of like Portal). To say anymore would be spoiling it, though do be aware that the game is very hard, and some patience will be needed. You can play the game here.

TLT

The next game on our list is a refined version of a game created for a 48 hour game making tournament, known as The Last Tango. In this quick and fun game, you play as a newlywed couple on their honeymoon. However, there’s a twist. Said newlywed couple are actually international spies, and have a whole boatload of other people who want them dead. It’s your job to make sure they stay alive. With simple controls and a fun concept, this game is sure to keep you amused for a little while. The game is available to play online here.

That’s all for this week folks, tune in next time for more fun and free games!

Welcome back to Free Games Friday, your source for well… free games. Today’s games are from the Ludum Dare, a game design competition where people are given 48 hours to make a game. Currently on Ludum Dare 27, with a theme of “10 seconds” these games are meant to be quick and fun to play, so once you’re done with these games I post here, I urge you to go to the Ludum Dare homepage and try out some of the other fun and interesting entries. These were just my favourites that I played.

Last Words Logo

Game number one is a bit of a somber entry. You work as a transcriber at a series of executions (in this case three) and you have to record the last words of the people being executed. However, your only method of hearing them is through an old one-way radio, which occasionally cuts out, making it so you have to fill in the blanks sometimes. This game is not perfect by far, but for a 48 hour effort I see a lot of potential for this game, and hopefully the developer will expand upon this and make a full fledged game, since I think he’s got a potential hit on his hands. You can play the game online or download it from the Ludum Dare entry page here.

NXTPWN10 Logo

The second game in the entry is called NXTWPN10, and is an enjoyable experience for pretty much the exact opposite reason as Last Words. In this game you play a small space ship, using the WASD keys to move and the mouse to aim and fire. You go through several rounds, all of which last ten seconds. If you defeat all of the enemies on the screen, then you get bonus health, but you only need to survive the round to win. Every round you are given a new weapon, some of which are admittedly better than others. A small warning on this game though, as there is quite a bit of flashing, so be warned. You can find the link to play this game online at it’s Ludum Dare page here.

Once again, feel free to check out other entries from the Ludum Dare, and chances are I’ll be highlighting some of my favourite games when they eventually do Ludum Dare 28. For now, enjoy playing and see you next week.

Free Games Friday

Duckie —  23/08/2013 — 1 Comment

Hello and welcome to my newest article series, titled Free Games Friday. Every friday I will be highlighting some games that are completely free to play that I’ve enjoyed, and want others to enjoy as well. For the first week of Free Games Friday, I have two games for you all.

game_icon

The first game is a short freeware game called Save The Date, a simple little game with a simple premise: you go on a date with a girl. Your goal is to make sure the date runs smoothly. Using simple visual novel-esque gameplay, you as the player are given a variety of choices that determine the outcome of the date. The game can be downloaded from to play here.

no one has to die

The second game for this week is a Flash game titled no one has to die. (the lack of capitals is intentional) In this game, you play as a strange visitor to the Fenix Corporation. Shortly after your arrival, the place becomes locked down due to a fire, and it’s your job to piece together what is happening through the narrative given by the four characters within the game. With multiple endings and (at least for me) great story telling through simple gameplay, this game is definitely worth the half hour or so it takes to get through it. You can play the game here.

That’s all for this week, stay tuned next friday when I will be highlighting a few more games for your enjoyment.
