    Tags: Ascension, Free,   

    Speaking of horror, a little tail-ender for the spooky season from some folks in Vancouver. A lonely little sidescrolling survival game called Ascension. Play-time is around two hours. Cost of entry is free.

    Ascension is a survival horror sidescroller set in a skyscraper plagued by a strange disease.

    Tags: Free, Renegade X   

    @impynickers I do believe there remains a crazy little enclave of gamers who still play the original Renegade to this day. I gotta admit, it blew my mind when it released. It was that, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Sacrifice and…hmmm…Messiah? All around the same time. Might not be gaming heaven for a lot of folks, but as far as PC action titles go, man, the memories of the era.

    But yeah, this Renegade X business…for free!? We sure are spoiled. Here’s a little trailer from the end of last year that gives a great rundown of the project!

    @impynickers Awesome, so it looks like we’ve got all bases covered. I’m curious to see what class appeals to @beige.

    Going to have a long overdue evening session now. Holy hell, to be able to marathon like the old days.

    By the by, here’s one to chalk up for a future Squad Mission! Gunpoint. I spent about fifteen minutes with a test build before dinner, and it has Squad written all over it. It’ll be free, too, or so I’m led to believe. Totally awesome stealth/action/platformer with an excellent logic component of reworking and rewiring elements within a level. Maybe even more popular around here than Stealth Bastard. Someone PLEASE check out Stealth Bastard, because it’s very good. Metal Gear Meatboy Speed Run, in a nutshell. And free.

    Anyway, yes, Gunpoint. This vidya will explain all:

    Tags: , Free, King Arthurs Gold   

    @shingro A very interesting question, and while the essence was folded into the Gaming Literacy squadcast, deciding or choosing an entry level game for someone either not familiar with gaming or that particular genre is a tasty proposition.

    There’s a question of balance, too. Do you showcase or introduce a comparatively shallow experience, for ease of initiation? Or would there be a benefit to unveiling something a little overwhelming, where exploration of the mechanics/world/choices can lead to far greater levels of initial satisfaction and self-determined discovery?

    Hope your Missus is gaming on with gusto.

    Behold, a new freebie! A corker, if I don’t say so myself…

    The awesome King Arthur’s Gold for PC, Mac and Neckbeard Linux.

    By the fellow who made ol’ Soldat (2D multiplayer counterstrike with jetpacks, if that rings a bell), KAG takes from the Terraria model by mixing crafting and building into siege warfare on a relatively grand scale. Highly recommend this one, been messing about with it casually for a month or so. When a battle is in full swing, it is quite the thing. The three classes include a worker, so while archers and swordsmen race about the battlements, workers build and repair fortifications, dig tunnels, sabotage foundations etc. Really dynamic matches, not your average multiplayer game and buckets of fun.


    And yes, I do believe that’s a Wilhelm scream.

    Tags: Dong Dong Never Die, Free,   

    Just as a pleasant diversion, get your Dong Dong on. Behold, the most amazing fighting game of the era has arrived on PC as a delightful example of Chinese legends raising the forks to Intellectual Property rights and, to quote SFA3, going for broke.

    Dong Dong Never Die Gameplay

    Indeed, Dong Dong Never Die is free and, quite frankly, remarkably serviceable. Even a genre apathetic such as myself cannot shield himself from the wink, wink, nod going on here. Very Squad-worthy. 368MB.

    EDIT: @beige @bowlisimo A challenge hath been ushered upon ye.

    @RedSwirl Fair enough. I actually think Enslaved was the perfect “action game for busy people”. It didn’t mess about, you got through the game and BAM, if you weren’t satisfied with the actual mechanics, you’d be an idiot not to be satisfied with the real reason to play that – Trip and Monkey.

    I can see how you’d be annoyed at the lack of platforming freedom, even in regards to basic ledges and channelling progression.

    Oh, here’s a freebie that is refreshingly unrelated to Halloween. Super Crate Box. Since many are on a Meatboy high and the air is filled with the delightful stench of ye olde schoolery, this wonderful little game should fit the bill. Get crate requirement, finish level. Fight the horde. Download – http://bit.ly/clFQrB

    @RedSwirl As much as I’d like to be frivolous with my moolah at the Cheap-fu price, I’ll have to deny myself the purchase of Castle Crashers in favour of holding out for Under Siege.

    If you’re in need of some serious hot shit and are shying away from last-night’s vindaloo, you could do worse than download the free original concept game that has become the commercial Dungeon Defenders! That’s right, back when it was a showcase for the Unreal Development Kit, Dungeon Defence was a four-week firestorm project for indy devs Trendy Entertainment. It’d be interesting to hear reports from those packing decent computers on what this plays like, then getting a comparison going when the commercial version hits.

    Remember…less than 200MB, and free as a bird.
