Weekend Download N°260
Game time! Grab some mom-approved snacks (apple wedges? celery? raisins?) and beverages (water? ugh...) and settle in for a good time. We've got cyborgs and evil angels and crazy alien beaming games ready to keep you entertained!
Env (Windows/Mac, free) - Crazy physics game time! Env is a brief first person survival game where your only goal is not to fall off the platform. Making your life difficult is a tractor beam-like apparatus sucking up blocks and suspending them in the air, exposing the dangerous water below. Grab food and tech cubes as you wander the environment trying not to trip over your own two feet. Surprisingly fun for such a simple concept.
Vindicator: Uprising (Windows/Mac/Linux, demo) - A single screen platform shooter that's all about shooting, hiding, and shooting some more. As a special agent for The Order, it's your job to fight the Angels who are out to conquer the Earth. Work your way through their hierarchy as you climb through level after level of twisted stages filled with enemies and obstacles. The current demo showcases three levels for the full game, which is expected to release later this year.
Dead Cyborg (Windows/Mac/Linux, donationware) - A donation-driven first person adventure game that's free to download, Dead Cyborg drops you in a broken down post-apocalyptic world as a human who is trying to find out what's going on. Two episodes have been released, each one supplying about two hours of exploration, point-and-click gameplay, puzzle solving, and shockingly well-rendered environments, especially when you consider this is a one man project! Grab both episode one and episode two and start playing.
