Time to get that Friday feeling with some free indie games once again! So what do we have for you this week? Well, we have a good dose of tank ramming, steampunk frilled, werewolf fornicating in fact. Sound good? Oh you can’t decide, huh? How about you give this week’s five games a little play and get back to us then? Okay, good.
- 1899 Steam & Spirit (Episode 1) by Molac Lab
This first episode of 1899 Steam & Spirit has you playing as Winston Churchill in a steampunk universe. On the surface it’s an 8-bit point and click adventure but delve a little deeper and you’ll find an espionage war between the French and British empires. Plus there’s quirk. A whole submarine load of quirk. Rumor has it that the second episode is finished too! I wonder who told us that….
- Rainbogeddon by Nitrome
We wanted to avoid calling this next one Pac-man with rainbow bombs but it seems we just did. Ah well. Rainbogeddon also has a bunch of other neat powerups to keep it a little more neon fresh as you progress so go and scuttle around those mazes you…scuttler…yeah!
- Para Para Paranoid by Sebagames
You can run away from your troubles but you can’t run away from yourself! Or can you? Made as part of the 48 hour Global Game Jam Uruguay 2012, Para Para Paranoid has you dodging your evil counterparts as you collect gold trinkets to find your true self. It’s challenging and makes bloopy sounds so naturally we’re on it like a hog on a barbecue.
- Tank’d by Team Indecisive
Physics defying tanks are all the rage right about now. Okay they’re not but they are pretty fun as is proven in Tank’d – a game that has you treading your tracks around some eye-catching environments and, of course, blowing the crap out of everything you come across.
- Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf by Cactusquid
Indie games don’t get much more “garage” than this! Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf is full of style and entirely unique. Why?! It’s a music video-game that’s why! Luckily the music is vibrant and decidedly mental, fitting with the gameplay. Oh, if you ever get stuck or just want to watch the whole game, click here to watch a neat video.
That’s it for this week but if you want more free indie games to play just click here to see last week’s picks – Moon Eyes Dead Ascension Phyta
