Who are you, and what is this?
On this site, I highlight one freeware game a week that I think is worth playing. New games generally go up on Fridays, and usually I prefer to highlight recent games.
I believe in freeware! I think that the creation of non-commercial work is important to the video game design practice, and I wanted there to be more places out there that highlighted these kinds of games.
Didn’t you used to have a site that covered freeware games before?
Yep! From 2012-2014, I helped curate games on FreeIndieGam.es. We had a good run!
Why do you include Roblox games?
Basically, I feel like there are a lot of interesting free games made in Roblox that are completely ignored in traditional indie games circles. Personally, I’m sorta fascinated by the space right now, and I would love to see more overlap between people making free Roblox games and people making freeware! (I wrote a little bit about it in this post.)
Hey, I follow you on Twitter and I’m not interested in this. Could you make a new twitter account or something?
Sorry, nope! I think most people on twitter who follow me are probably interested in my game recommendations, and one of the reasons I started this site is to try and do something good with the number of twitter followers I have. If you’re not interested, I recommend just muting this domain on twitter!
Where can I find more freeware games?
I recommend checking out the following sites, which regularly cover interesting freeware games:
freeindiega.me: No relation to my old site; features one free game at a time, with a great archive of interesting work.
warp door: the most modern incarnation of indygamer blogspot, probably the best curated source of freeware games on the internet!
@wf__games: “just a collection of weird fucking video games“. Focuses on highlighting the weird and wonderful in newly released freeware.
(For Roblox games, I’ve yet to really find any good sources for interesting new things. Recommendations welcome!)
