Weekend Download №172
Hello there, weekend gamer! Tired of the rest of the week sapping time that could be spent playing games? We know how you feel! Make the most of your weekend by playing a few free games. They won't demand your entire afternoon, leaving you free to kick back and play even more games!!!
Technobabylon - Part I (Windows, 2.9MB, free) - Latha Sesame is both physically and digitally trapped inside her slummy apartment, completely cut off from the outside world. It's your job to help her escape. Technobabylon is a sci-fi adventure game built in the classic style. Use the mouse to point and click your way through the story, interacting with people, objects, and items along the way. It's a short experience, to be sure, but a good one with an almost fully-realized world. Once you finish you can check out Technobabylon - Part II (which is also available for Mac/Linux) for more of the same.
Incertitude (Windows, 22MB, free) - A nice little puzzle platform game that utilizes multiple rooms, teleporters, and grenades that both destroy and create things! Dr. Borowskistein is conducting experiments on the physics of shadows. The device he's working on draws him into a strange world, however, and he must find his way to the exit in each stage. Trial and error are part of the game, as are very fast reflexes and a little bit of forethought.
Note: All games have been confirmed to run under Windows 7 and are virus-free. Mac users should try Boot Camp, Parallels, or CrossOver Games to play Windows titles, Linux users can use Wine. If you know of a great game we should feature, use the Submit link above to send it in!
