Yeah. It's a very fun game. Simple yet quite difficult once you reach the 'blue' space section. Tried to get my wife into it but she only wants to rock 'Streets Of Rage Remake' - She wants to beat it on Mania with no continues.

Survival

Adventure
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No


Theme: Horror

In Survival you play as a female student who woke up from a deep slumber inside a rather empty school, surrounded by blue ghosts that will chase after and hurt her if they spot our clueless pupil nearby. The objective here is to explore your surroundings and collect ten hearts before making your way to the exit on the ground floor, carefully avoiding contact with any of the said ghosts unless you want to lose your health quicker than you can say 'boo!'.

You can run for a short period of time before having to catch your breath, although stamina and health can also be recovered by acquiring one of the ten hearts. Players are only allowed ten minutes to escape from the building, so don't expect to beat it on your first run without knowing where a couple of the hearts are located at. - IndieGames.com

Life In The West

Simulation/Management
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No
Netbook Friendly


Theme: Parody

Poor Kanye. No one is ever going to let him forget the fact that he's a few instruments short of a band, it seems. The Stanley Parable's creator Davey Wredon is back with a new game entitled Life in the West. In this 5-minute experience, you'll get the chance to man Kanye West's twitter account and, well, watch as he slowly goes insane? More of an art piece than anything else, Life in the West will basically have you typing random gibberish in an attempt to simulate some of Kanye's odder moments and picking random people to follow. Yup. I'm confused too. - Indiegames.com

Really glad to hear you found something you like. Maybe we should get together. Another person from here has been asking me to hop in from time to time and I think I may give DDO another shot soon. I kinda of gave MMORPGs the cold shoulder awhile back but already my heart is warming up with so many more MMO type games coming out that were former retail and all of the PM request.

The Deamhold

Adventure
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No
Netbook Friendly


Theme: Fantasy

You wrench your eyes open. Rough grey stone. Grey stone ceiling. Your head hurts, and -- You're lying on the floor. You're staring at the ceiling, and it's rough and grey, and you don't recognize it.

You roll slowly (smooth cold floor?) and try to sit up. It hurts. You crawl upright. The walls, rough stone also, scrape your aching fingers. You can't -- there was white agony, felt like raw light tearing you apart. You can't remember anything after that.

You can't remember anything before that. Gone. You clutch at memory, and there's nothing but empty air.

Hug Marine

Action/Platformer
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No
Netbook Friendly


Theme: Science Fiction

Sometimes a simple game with chunky pixelated graphics is all that's needed to make one smile and, well, Hug Marine by C.Y. Reid did just that. It made me smile. Must have been the pacifism theme or maybe the fact that at the end of each (wildly different) level an alien was waiting to be hugged, but it really doesn't matter. I actually smiled while playing a platformer and, chances are, so will you. - Indiegames.com

Megazell's Top Pick
General Conflict
Megazell's Top Pick


Platformer/Shooter
Single Player - No
Multiplayer - Yes
Gamepad Support - Yes


Theme: Fantasy

Apart from having the greatest indie developer name + animated logo combo I have seen in a while, development team JARRR, a group of eight students at Utrecht School of the Arts, have also created a lovely, fast-paced multiplayer game that is an absolute blast if you can get three friends around your computer.

The basic idea behind General Conflict is that you throw bombs at the opposition and jump around the platforms until there aren't any platforms to jump on anymore. At the moment there are twelve levels in total and two different game modes, but the dev team want to build it up, depending on how much interest they receive.

The biggest issue for me is that there's no online multiplayer, and hence, not many people are actually going to have the opportunity to play it properly. However, I'm told that this is indeed one feature the team hopes to add in a later version - again, if the interest is there. So if this does pique your interest, make sure to let your voice be heard! - IndieGames.com

Megazell's Comment - Excellent hotseat game! Get some chums together and/or family and enjoy this stellar game. Online multiplayer coming soon.

Flicker

Shooter/Vertical
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No
Netbook Friendly


Theme: Science Fiction

Flicker plays on the old issue that Atari games used to have, where the screen would flicker if too many objects were visible at the same time. You are a religious enthusiast who decides to go back in time one year and destroy the human race. Like you do.

As you shoot at the sun, it will begin to throw fireballs your way, and rather quickly both your main character and all the enemies will begin to flicker uncontrollably.

The Thunderware Games guys believe that, rather than making the game unplayable, it adds a new level of excitement as you try to concentrate on where you are and what you're shooting at.

It's worth reading the readme that comes with the game to see some of the finer points of play. - IndieGames.com

I play on Khyber server. I ended up paying about $100 for the whole game, not a bad deal since I play all the time.

If you start I can give you a hookup on some gear and cash.

Software Spotlight

STEAM

Posted Image

Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute games and related media online, from small independent developers to larger software houses. Steam also has community features, automated game updates, and in-game voice and chat functionality.

As of May 2011, there are over 3,368 games available through Steam, and over 30 million active user accounts. Although Valve never releases sales figures, Stardock, owner of Impulse, a platform competing with Steam, estimated that Steam has a 70% share of the digital distribution market for video games.

Many major publishers have large catalogues available on Steam, including Bethesda Softworks, Activision, Rockstar Games and others.

STEAM also have freeware games to be enjoyed along with a compliment of Free To Play games.

Megazell's Comment - When you get STEAM for free some features are not fully functional until a purchase is made. For example, the friend list will be available but you will be unable to add others until you make a purchase or recieve a gift (free game that they may have purchased) from another STEAM user. Also Humble Bundle are made every once and awhile where you donate (from .01 and up) to indie developers for a suite of games...those games may have STEAM counter parts and will register as a purchase.

You really don't buy any games? Not even fantastic deals such as The Orange Box or games with unlimited replayability like Starcraft?
These games also are a modder's delight for a massive amount of other free games, with long-term support and free servers as well.

Somewhere on CAG is an actual list of every PC game I bought when I supported retail PC games. Though I did support it back in the day I would never pay full retail. I always found a way to get it for less (Extreme Couponing FTW).

With the advent of DRM, DLC and other nonsense I stopped buying any PC games all together. The last game I thought about buying was 'Disciples 3'...but it was a no go because all of the nonsense it came attached with.

On top of this I often get retail PC games for free from various places. On CAG alone I have over 130 games on STEAM through gifts from other forum members. I get games for free retail games though bank reward programs. I get free games from forum giveaways like what 'Green Man Gaming' is doing right now. Giving out 160 retail games.

Then you have betas like what OnLive did where I got to play and end the latest Batman game.

I'll donate to freeware developers but I'm done with supporting retail PC gaming.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I'm getting more and more selective about what I will actually shell out money for. I used to do a lot of preorders based on hype, but now I wait til each game is thoroughly reviewed or discounted. My last purchases were Mass Effect 2, Starcraft 2, Portal 2, and the Witcher 2 (that's a lot of 2s, I know, which just goes to show that I only really got them out of some loyalty to the franchises). I guess it's a combination of all the disappointment, DRM and BS like you said, and also the fact that I just have so many games that really don't get old and I'll probably still be playing them years from now, so I really don't need more.

I have HL, HL: Opposing Force, HL: Blue Shield and SC. I actually gave them all away here on CAG and then ended up getting them again as gifts from various places. A long time ago I had a MOD thread like this one but not as refined. It was on the Quake9 forums and Planet Half-Life. I had mods for Quake, Doom, HL, UT, Solider Of Fortune and some other non-FPS games. Those are great games and the mod communities for them is still going strong.

But I don't think in this climate those games would be released today the way they were back then.

Thankfully, many of these freeware and F2P games have the same following and mods, maps, models, skins and more come out for them often.
