Software Spotlight

Desura

Posted Image

Desura is a digital distribution platform developed by DesuraNET for Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms. Visiting the site on Mac OS X reveals a message that they are working on Mac support with an option to be notified by email when available. It is used to distribute games and related media online, with a primary focus on small independent developers rather than larger software houses. Desura also offers community features, automated game updates, and developer resources.

Some of the developers who have games on their service include Frozenbyte, Frictional Games, Introversion Software, Basilisk Games, S2 Games, and Running with Scissors, Inc., as well as selling many games that were previously included in Humble Indie Bundle initiatives as well as numerous other commercial titles. They also have several different freeware and free software games available through their service.

Megazell's Comment - I really like Desura. I find myself spend a lot of time using their service because of the support they give towards freeware and Linux. If I ever break my code and start buying it would be with Desura and possibly GOG.

Thread Update.

Reminder - I am slowly going through the list and updating the games listed with back-up links with new back-up links. Some of these links are hosted/uploaded by others and some I have to do myself since many titles are obscure and other people/companies that are uploading to the web are bundling them with nasty-PC-bogging/breaking down stuff.

If there is a game you see that needs a new link pronto - shoot me a PM or post.

Enjoy!

Hey Megazell, Aion is going F2P in Europe on February 28 and in the spring for the US. I played the game at launch and it was great, I just had to stop for financial reasons. I recommend it (at least until Guild Wars 2 comes out) as it was a ton of fun and a beautiful MMO.

Yeah man. It was covered on PCG and MMOHUT and MMOBomb spoke about it in their videos. Can't wait. We need more f2p games!

Also... and sorry if i missed it... but is there a list of games that are free that AREN'T fan made? Nothing against them but I was hoping most of these weren't fan made, but just free, be it older or indie games. But is there a list of games that are free that are made by companies and not by fans?

99% of the MMORPGs are not fanmade. In fact, only 1 is while the rest are made by a public/private studio.

As for the rest you would have to know the franchises to pick them out. The list is:

43% Fan made.
39% Former retail and/or F2P
18% Student made.

I'll say though that you will be missing out on some stellar gems by passing on all of the fan made stuff.

Posted 14 March 2012 - 02:34 PM

The Suffering wouldn't launch for me without using a no-cd crack on Windows 7 64 bit (which really shouldn't be necessary for freeware..). Even after getting it to launch, the sound compatibility for the game is terrible. I'm using a HT Omega Striker sound card and a lot of the sound effects randomly won't play (like footsteps, weapon effects, doors closing/opening, etc.). I googled it and it seems to be a fairly common problem. There's no fix that I could find, so I uninstalled it.

That's interesting because I am playing it (have been playing it for the last 2 weeks - never ended my first time around) and it plays without a CD Key request or sound issue. I do have a graphics issue when I go to the sinks and try to turn them on but that was a one time thing that never returned.

Did you use the 1st link or the 2nd from my posting? I used the first.

I used the first link. Which OS did you use? I tried all compatibility options and it wouldn't launch (literally nothing happens when I try to launch). The sound issue most likely has to do with what soundcard you use, it's probably not compatible with mine.. which is odd considering I haven't had issues with sound in any other games. I suppose I could try onboard sound, that wouldn't be a great solution though..

EDIT: Tried onboard sound and still have the same problem.

I'm using Windows XP SP 3 - Gamer Edits. Which is my last foray into the world of Microsoft Windows. Unless they go freeware. :)

I'm going to re-dl from the first link to one of my side machines and see if I get a CD Key prompt.

Sound issues are stemming from sound cards.

That'd probably explain it then, I'm guessing my inability to launch the game without a no-cd crack has to do with me running windows 7 64 bit. I find it odd that I'm having sound issues with both my onboard sound and sound card, makes me think it might all have to do with windows 7 64 bit rather than a sound card issue, but who knows.

Yeah, I had a friend install it on dummy Windows XP machine we had around the house and loaded it up with no problem.

Sorry that one is not running for ya :(

Thread Update.

Pages 1 to 14 have been update with new links, replaced non-working gameplay video links and added up to date content info.

Contemplating walking away from F2P games entirely. After ongoing debates both in RL and with internets lads and ladies, I believe I've come to a crossroad with F2P games and see myself walking away from them entirely and going deeper into freeware games only.

I have already started the process at home and have uninstalled all F2P games.

Here are some of the reasons:

1) Not enough time to play them all or get really deep into any of them.

2) Too many of them are requiring the installation of some service or program that I then have to hunt for to disable because it messes with 1 of the other games I play. This is part of the reason why I walked away from retail.

3) Not enough RL friends/family interest.

4) I use to enjoy breaking into that barrier where I would have access to paid content through in game earnings....now I'm just bored with it. :( Part of the bored comes from #1 in the list and other is because I've been doing it for so long that the act is now stale to me.

What say you CAG and Friends? Continue posting F2P games or nay.
