Welcome young and old to the first fantastical, fabulous - and most importantly free Freedom Friday! The following four fresh releases have flourished their finely honed pieces of art for all to enjoy during the festivities!
Go back to your childhood years with Festival a short story involving discovery, love, and playful imagination. What if your imagination is a little more in the clouds? Maybe Vega Strike is more your style. Power up those inter-space-flight-devices and set phases to trade. Vega Strike is a open world Action-Space-Sim that lets you trade, fight, and explore in a vast universe!
Sloth Patrol is the perfect cure for those afflicted with an itch that slow and methodical just cannot scratch, so apply those thumb braces for the fastest twin stick shooter and the most realistic sloth-based video game ever conceived. After you have your fill of sloth based action slow down and sit down for Battle for Wesnoth a turn-based tactical strategy game with a high fantasy theme!
Come back each Friday as we free even more games for the budget conscious gamer!
Battle for Wesnoth is very good.
yeah it's free but it beats any 1000$ game any day.
I would have payed money for it.
Wow, thats a cool thing :D
ill definetly try them out ô.o
Sloth Patrol is something of a guilty pleasure. Good stuff!
Yes, Battle For Wesnoth is pure gold. But the others are also good!
SLOTH PATROL IS AWESOME. ALL HAIL SLOTHS
Freedom Friday is a neat idea, although I'd love to see a smaller selection of games and deeper content (some detail on the games' histories, perhaps some thoughts form developers, and players).
Also wouldn't hurt to clarify whether this is geared towards covering games which are "free as in Freedom" (which the title seems to imply, and which it appears that Festival and Sloth Patrol may not be), or stuff which doesn't cost money.
You're welcome to ask anything of me regarding Festival.
Desura never contacted me so I'm assuming none of the other developers got contacted when this news post was made. Seems they just picked the games out of a hat.
As I said, you want history, thoughts, etc. lemme know. To start off, Festival was a game made in at most a month (or a week, I forget) about a year ago for a contest. There were only two entries and Festival won.
But if you prefer something even more in-depth let me know. I'd just prefer not to cloud the comment section here with it.
They were more comments regarding format and content for the Freedom Friday thing.
I don't personally have anything to ask (I normally reserve my interviews for cross-platform stuff), but I do hope that others will use this opportunity to engage directly with a developer :)
Congratulations on winning the contest!
With regards to that, as I said, they seemed to just pick the games out of a hat, and did not tell us about this at all. I don't really have a problem with how they handled it, nothing was taken (since these are free games).
I am working on a cross-platform visual novel but I wouldn't have much to publicly say since it's a paid-for product. You can learn about it from the news article on the page for Festival.
Thanks! Though, the contest was a year ago. It was just some small forum based contest.
