Started copypasta but then I was like bored now, checked the pages to see if they're still there, didn't check dl links. Skipped browser and mmo shit. Be back later, but lend a hand eh.
Fun web text based adventure RPG
There's a fan forum for the game but it is fairly dead at the moment. Maybe a fresh influx of posters could upgrade it to shuffling Un-dead.
the best god damn 2d ride around game ever, now with explorer guy, irresponsible dad is still gest though, I WILL SUPLEX MY SON INTO THIS HARPOON!
Outpost 1, and its sequel, Outpost 2: Divided Destiny
OP1 is entirely single player, and is basically sim city IN SPACE.
OP2 also has city building and management, but with a side of RTS gameplay. A campaign that has a storyline (not very different between either faction unfortunetly) a very sparse single player scenario list of a population/spacecraft goal for either faction, and a multiplayer mode that's basically been non-existent since the late 90s due to sierra shutting down the WON servers -- but you can still play multiplayer by using programs that simulate a LAN over the internet... Its a nice little time waster, but don't expect it to blow your mind.
Note about Outpost 2 with the veteran community:
Everyone that still plays is a pro who WILL curb stomp you, and possibly even force NO-FUN-ALLOWED game rules like 'no rushing' time limits and such. Do not expect to encounter a multiplayer match that plays out like DEFCON does.
oh my fuck i think i remember that game. that game, like fallout, was on a demo CD i got back in the 90's
and i couldn't figure out how to play either
Free release by the original creators
If I recall correct this is all you need (beyond DOSBox) to get it running.
Not freeware but I heard it was kind of cult and rare, and I managed to find it : Toonstruck
FTP cause it's pretty big
If you like Ponit n Clicks, cartoons and Christoffer Lioyde(how do you spell it?) DOWNLOAD THIS NOW FUCKER! NO, NOT LATER, RIGHT NOW! DO IT! DO IT NOW~
Team Fortress Arcade
Dino Run SE is free for the next couple of days.
Bullet Hell meets MMORPG with permadeath.
Warning: insanely addictive.
That map is disorienting as all hell.
It really is. I have no idea why it's skewed like that.
This might be of interest.
Equal parts shooting and piledriving.
Man, it's going to take some time to go through all that.
I don't know what it is exactly, probably just me being cheap, but I've gotten disillusioned with commercial games considering how engrossing freeware games can be.
Hah, oh man, I was just about to post that one.
The controls take some time getting used to and I still can't beat three levels on War Queen, but it's damn awesome anyway.
Nitronic Rush is what happens when Trackmania and Tron have a baby and then weld five high-powered rocket engines to that baby. And the godfather is an incredibly cheesy commentator. Oh, and there's sawblades and shit.
It's fucking awesome is what I'm saying. Check it out.
Deity's a student game sort of like a super-redux version of Arkham Asylum's gargoyle swinging and thug incapacitating from a not-quite-isometric perspective instead of over the shoulder. Pretty short but it's a good length for the content it has.
You are such a gigantic fucking faggot.
I'm surprised the first two Elder Scrolls games aren't on this list. They became free a while back.
And are a pain in the balls to get running.
Here's a good list.
SCP has a game now?!
not so much a game as a "See how long you can go before you panic and close it" marathon, based on 087 (which is possibly one of the creepiest things on the site.)
I played for about 30 seconds before I NOPE'd so hard it crashed the computer
also, procedurally generated floors, so every playthrough is different (but mind shittingly terrifying)
Well that was underwhelming. It was basically just Dark Stairwell: The Game. The most emotional inducing thing in the game was the tank like controls.
the whole point of the game is to imitate SCP-087 (http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-087) which is, surprinsingly, a dark stairwell. Though it seems you stopped before any of the real terror becomes relevant. I won't lie though it's a very bland game, and is pretty much "Dark Stairwell, the game". I wish we would see more SCP games, because the idea itself would be very easy to execute for almost every object, as well as simple. Imagine a game where you got to explore 093, or dealing with a containment breach of 76-2 or 862. Though any game containing SCP should not have a winning goal, instead only the goal to "Survive as long as possible"
On to the topic of free games though, vertigo is pretty entertaining, it's a rock climbing game based entirely on ragdoll physics and moving each limb, it's pretty fun even if it's still a WIP.
You have no appreciation for subtle horror.
Elevator: Source - Fast Paced …
do you want to experience realistic video game elevators in a high paced chaotic environment WITH YOUR PEERS? Sure you do, with over 20 levels of intense elevator action, and many more with the games custom maps! Best of all it's FREE (with ownership of gmod and half life 2 episode 2)
so what are you waiting for? GET IN A GAME!
Mario Portal is out now. And I have no idea how to properly shot web. I feel stupid.
The controls feel kind of alien to me. But the same is true of every stab yourself game I've played. I've even tried playing just mario, ignoring the portal gun and it's kind of hard.
Embric of Wulfhammer's CASTLE [DELUXE]
More endings! Bugfixes! Less sunglasses?
DESTROY SUPER EAGLE
Anyone played Superfighters on Newgrounds? The guys bhind that are making a new game 'Superfighters Deluxe'.
It's only pre-alpha just now, online-multiplayer is the only current mode. Download - play.
Seem cool but it could use more people playing it.
- - -
Here's the original if you haven't played it, might even want to give that a go first before checking out the deluxe, since its complete.
► WTF Is... - I Wanna be the…
suddenly out of nowhere: Hitman: Blood Money is added to the freeware list. In your browser too, thanks for the heads up facebook.
Battlestar galactica space combat game
Diaspora Release Trailer
DCS World is the unified software for all DCS sims and it comes with a free Su-25T module for those with a need for speed. The damage model is damn impressive for those looking to see whether or not they can slalom between buildings at 400 knots and DCS has a number of how-to videos on their youtube channel if you ever feel like exploring it more in depth.
Subbania: Das Boot (Nazis in a submarine) as a shooter/explorer in Hell fighting demons. In production for 2 years by one guy, this HTML5 game has 118 levels, 25 songs, about 60 unique enemies, a 3-5 hour playtime, and can be played in Firefox and Chrome, but it works better in Chrome. You can download it for free for $5 from the Chrome store.
>You can download it for free for $5 from the Chrome store.
>for free for $5
But that's not how free works, or at the very least how gratuitous work.
I'm sorry, I mistyped.
I meant or, not for. For free, or for $5 via the Chrome store.
All this time and no one's mentioned that the first three Command & Conquer games (Command & Conquer, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun) were released as freeware a few years ago.
Since the first two are so old, they only come with a Windows XP patch, but if you looks around you can find unofficial install patches and insturctions to install them on 64-bit Windows 7.
