About
A dungeon crawler. About 3 friends and their quest for an unknown treasure.

Developed by ManyHat that was founded during our time at The Game Assembly. We had a 9 week deadline. As much as we wanted to add more features we had to scrap alot of ideas to meet the deadline. This is our own engine. Hope you enjoy it!

It's Friday friends, which means four more fantastically free games for the budget sensitive gamers among us!

First up on the freedom talent stage is ILLUSION - Ghost Killer. The goal of IGK is quite simple; position six cameras in a mysterious shed that has people reporting hearing scary things. But it is never that simple is it? The next game swaps one type of madness for another. Introducing NEED FOR MADNESS (caps included) a very mad car racing and crashing game where you perform stunts to power your car and win by either racing (finishing in first place) or wasting the other cars!


Up next is Lair of the Madhat with a very simple, no fuss dungeon crawler about 3 friends and their quest for an unknown treasure. Your Freedom Friday wraps up with Love Sniper a comedy BxG Visual Novel about Heiji, a cupid named Picchu and their antics in helping Heiji find true love.


Come back next week as we deliver another four main courses all for free!

A little bit more than a week remaining and even though we're on track the game still needs a lot of work.

Hi Johnyliltoe,

I'm afraid you require directx 11 to play the game and unless I'm mistaken I'm pretty sure your graphics card only supports directx 10.1

When I start the game windowed or fullscreen, the mouse gets stuck on the edge and gets reset if I try to move it. I'll try again later on my PC at home. Looks pretty cool, so I hope it works when I get home!

If it's during startup of the game, try just waiting for it for a little while. At the start of the game there should be a short time when the initial data is loaded to start up the engine and the game. This could, however, take longer time depending on computer configuration.

Try just waiting for it a little while. As soon as the music starts playing, you should be good to go.

I hope it works out for you and that you will enjoy the game!
