    Kung-fu bunnies

    Here is a trailer I've made for a game that has eaten up a lot of my free time the past weeks, although it's only a 3 level demo.



    Lugaru, by Wolfire Software. (they also have 2 freeware games on their site) It's a quite freeform kung-fu game, in which you play a kung-fu bunny. The ragdoll physics and low gravity help to give it a very wire-fu feeling. Check it out.

    Henke's Further Recommendations:
    Jailbreak, a sneak avoid-em-up of sorts. Very fun.

    http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/games.htm - home of "5 days a stranger"(point-and-click adventure), 1213(Flashback-esque thingy) and others.

    http://jet.ro/dismount/ - Stair and Truck Dismount

    http://www.ragdollsoft.com/ragdollmasters/ - Ragdoll Masters, a very simple (and very fun) fighting game.

    Kumoon

    Kumoon is a 3D puzzle game that has you playing a chick with a gun. Chick, as in baby chicken. You shoot boxes, which react in a semi-realistic physics-simulated fashion. Once a level is solved (given that this is more proof-of-concept than anything, this is pretty easy) you can use unlimited ammo to blow up everything on screen and watch it all react with each other. Oh, and all the stuff you shoot stays on screen, without vanishing, up to an arbitrary number of objects that you can change.

    Other levels can be made using text files with individual box coordinates, or names of typical box structures, such as pyramids or walls.

    http://www.pakoon.com/

    Jailbreak, the game Henke refers to above, can be found with a Google search for the terms "Jailbreak," "Stephen Roantree" (its author), and "Deliberate Games." The game can, as far as I can tell, only be found at a certain well-meaning and valuable site that hosts older games of ambiguous copyright status, though Jailbreak itself is totally free and legal for distribution. It is, if you will, a kind of rest HOME for games that might be construed as UNDER the radar of the DOGS of the gaming industry. (I understand your anality, TheOutrider, but I hope you alerted Henke of your edit, since it removes just about any possibility of the average user finding the game if they are interested in it.)

    Gweat, I'm hooked on this now! I always wanted to try that cycle race. It's good minigame for breaks at work. Hopefully they add LAN MP, this game just begs for it.

    Armagetron may just be what you're looking for.


    [edit] in other news, I'm stuck to using company internet from horrible computers right now. will update this again once I've moved into my flat and have interwebs at home. [/edit]

    It was one of my first games as well, so I downloaded it... and the game sucks. It probably did back then, too, but we weren't exactly spoiled at that point in computergame history. The remake is definitely done with a lot of love for the original, but you get better gameplay on a mobile phone.

    Well, I play the original on an emulator from time to time, so if it's true to that ...

    The controls suck to be precise. But yes, we weren't so spoiled by mouse back in 8bit era.

    This game was pretty sweet, although some of the levels drove me absolutely mad!

    Oh and I'm having some issues finding that jailbreak game, any chance of getting a link?

    I'm having fun kicking the shit out of bunnies, but I feel $20 is a bit high. Maybe I'll just wait for Lugaru 2 and get that instead.

    By Shalebridge Cradle, this is GOOOD!

    Unbelievebale technical quality, for a indie game. The environment has very detailed textures, advanced lighting, motion blur and bloom effects and dynamic shadows.

    But the best thing is the SUPERIOR physics engine. I mean, I would recommend any professional studio to take a good lesson from physics of this free game. It's fun to just grab whatever object you spot and play with throwing it around, see how it interacts with the environment. And the physics model is there for a good purpose, often you have to stack crates to reach ventilation hatches, open doors with your mouse, get that can from the top of the shelf or even block the door with a barrel to keep that unknown ugly thing from eating your butt.


    The premise is fairly good and the horror atmosphere is excellent.

    But WHY it's so incredibly short? As I have read, it's merely a tech demo. Full game should be available sometimes in 2007. I wonder if it will be for free as well? I doubt so. Also, if just the demo had 500 Megabytes...

    These sites may be worth adding to the first post. I've already posted them in the White Chamber thread, but they deserve to be here, me thinks.
    Indygamer showcases independent, and mostly free, games.
    Missing is an excellent adventure game, and so is White Chamber (it even has voices for nearly every line, which is a rarity).

    Ah, the freebies thread!

    Hrm. Were Transcendence and Anacreon mentioned? I've never actually played Anacreon myself, but Transcendence was good fun.

    Transcendence plays like a sci-fi roguelike, with stargates serving the purpose of dungeon stairs, and lots of weapon shops, fuel depots, and armor/shield generator vendors to visit, as well as countless hordes of enemies. You upgrade your ship, loot the wrecked ships of your enemies, that sort of thing.

    Grave Spirit is a strange mix of adventure game and... hitting things with a stick game. I still haven't solved it myself.

    Have the roguelikes been put in, too? Nethack, Dungeon Crawl, the Doom roguelike, and Dwarf Fortress. There are others, too, but these are my favorites.

    Within A Deep Forest can be downloaded here. You play a bouncing ball, it's quite a challenging platformer.

    Will abandonware become legal?

    Spot the DMCA exemption for "computer programs and video games distributed in formats that have become obsolete and that require the original media or hardware as a condition of access, when circumvention is accomplished for the purpose of preservation or archival reproduction of published digital works by a library or archive".

    EDIT: Yeah, OK, it's a renewed exemption that originated in 2003, but still, it perhaps bodes well for the British Library, who are lobbying for similar exemptions in the UK for audio etc.
