Please post here if you would like to contribute (please do!). This topic was originally started by Slaughter, I'll try to expand it for him while he's occupied Posted Image (merging Slaughter's games is still a TODO)

Slender - The Eight Pages

Quote

Slender is a short, experimental horror game in which you must travel into a dark woods at night, with a simple goal: find 8 pages that are scattered across the woods. Butg as you are looking for them, you are being stalked by an entity that grows more persistant and relentless as each page is collected, an entity that you cannot even look at for long, let alone fight. Your only hope is to collect all 8 pages before it catches you...

Space Quest 2: Vohaul's Revenge (VGA remake)

Quote

Roger's life has returned to normal after the events in Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter. Transferred to the Xenon Orbital Station 4 and promoted to head (and only) janitor, life is quiet until he is abducted by Sludge Vohaul, the evil mastermind behind the original Sarien attack of the Arcada. As Roger is being transported to the Labion labor mines as punishment for thwarting Vohaul's original plan, the prison ship crash-lands in a nearby jungle upon the planet.

King's Quest III: To Heir is Human (VGA remake)

Quote

Long ago, when magic was the only science known to man there dwelt in the land of Llewdor a wizard named Manannan. He was very learned in all the matters of the heavens and earth. Of great age, Manannan presented a frail appearance, as meant, Manannan’s impression of fragility lasted only until one looked into his coal-black eyes, which burned with a strange fire. This was, indeed, a powerful wizard.
Although he was powerful, and capable of conjuring up vast armies of spirit servants to sweep his hearth, prepare his meals, and other menial tasks with which he would not soil his hands, this solution to his everyday needs was not satisfactory to him. For he liked his solitude, and didn’t want a lot of spirits cluttering up his house. Instead, he apprenticed a very young boy to do his bidding, taking the lad when he was only a year old, so that the boy would have no memories to tug at him in the years to come.

Unfortunately for Manannan, boys grow up and become adventuresome young men. As his slave grew in stature and in strength, Manannan was irritated to find him poking around in areas of the house where he didn’t belong. Or he would climb down the narrow path leading to Manannan’s mountaintop retreat to explore the surrounding countryside. Even punishment did not stop him for long.
One day, when his slave was 18 years of age, the wizard found him practicing magic spells. This was the last straw!
“YOU!” Manannan screamed. “You have read my books of spells and plundered my supplies of powders and potions. You have even ventured into Llewdor again, against my expressed command, for nowhere else could you have gathered some of these ingredients!”
“You think you will win your freedom with these tricks?” the wizard sneered. “You shall see your mistake! You have earned only your own demise!” And with that, Manannan raised his hands menacingly.
Suddenly the earth began to shake and his slave was no more. Only a small pile of ashes remained where he had stood.
“Next time, I won’t make the same mistake,” Manannan snarled. “ I’ll never let any of my slaves reach manhood. I’ll have no more accidents.”

Spelunky

Quote

"Legends speak of a Colossal Cave that extends deep underground, so twisted by time that its passages shift like the sand under which it lies... the Cave is said to be filled with fabulous treasures, but also incredible danger!"
Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and roguelikes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible. Every time you play the cave's layout will be different. Use your wits, your reflexes, and the items available to you to survive and go ever deeper! Perhaps at the end you may find what you're looking for...
Don't be afraid to die! But also don't be afraid to live! Happy Spelunky-ing!

If you're signed up with Indiegala you can pick up the free game Normality if not, register at Indiegala and receive some pretty decent oldies and indies. They seem to give away free games every week or so.

So after a brief hiatus I'm back, (there's literally been nothing to give away lately) so here we go.

IndyGala has for some reason a lot of old classic games usually sold dirt cheap.
For example:

Bioshock - $4.00
Borderlands GOTYE - $6.99
Dying Light - The Following Enhanced; Mega, Super, Ultra, Complete Edition. Ugh....- $39.99

(Note to self)
Add universal currency exchange rate to my signature.

So basically it's a 2K Games & Warner Brothers sale. Still pretty cheap stuff and those 3^ are masterpieces of video games.

Sadly the only game being given away currently is Agent Awesome which is getting Mixed reviews on Steam.
It's retail price is $9.99 but clicking above at this link ^  it's 100% Completely free.

I've been told by sources that Green Man Gaming and GOG might be giving things for free.
And GOG now has the Original X-COM series. About time!

True! I love GoG and I was very glad to see them get the classics. I will be even more glad to see the newer XCOMs arrive.

If you enjoy Role Playing Games (Anime Style), you can pick up for free a copy of Memories of a Vagabond. It currently has a Very Positive user review rating @ 80% which isn't too shabby. Once again this game is ANOTHER free game from the good folks at Indigala. <-- Click link for game and make sure you're registered.

I'm starting to sound like a broken record. Once again Indiegala is giving away another indie game called Cubetractor which is described as a "Neo-Retroesque" Strategy game. Something to pick up for whatever reason. Make sure you have an account with them to pick it up.

Another Free game is one called Bell Ringer. It's got more negative reviews than positive so don't say I didn't warn you. It's not an Indigala giveaway this time hurray!

You can actually pick up here at PC Gamer.

EA's Origin (Spits) has started to expand their "Free Games" with a new "On The House" game expansions. While this is a nice gesture seemingly at first, if you don't own the Base game, you might be tempted to buy it and get the expansion for free.
Posted Image
Anyway, the "Free Expansion" is Battlefield 4 - Final Stand. As I said above it is ONLY the expansion, so if you don't own the Base game you cannot download it AND unlike the "Free Games" it will ONLY be added to your library UNTIL you buy Battlefield 4. Keep this in mind.

P.S. I won't allow my venomous hatred for EA stop anyone from buying their products. I simply do Not encourage it.

Interesting. I might even bite. Though it has been a looooong time since I played true RPGs. I played space quests and hero's quests to no end, I was even prepared to write "climb up" and "climb down" several hundred times to have my hero level up... I did learn a lot of English through those games though! Dictionary was a necessary tool.
