Free Game Friday: Bonesaw

Love sidescrollers? Love beating the crap out of things? Well this free indie game has you covered. Bonesaw takes inspiration from the old-school style of gaming and does it well with a combination of puzzles and platforming.

Not really much else to say, but jump in!

Free Game Friday: Streets of Rage Remake

So if you just happen to be a fan of oldschool games, not to mention games back on the Genesis, then boy do I definitely have a treat for you today.

This beat'em up has been created from the ground up by the fans for the fans featuring a lot of different playable characters from the Street of Rage universe including new ones! A lot of blood and sweat went into this which doesn't normally happens when it comes to fangames of this magnitude.

Streets of Rage Remake is a final product that allows for local multiplayer and includes their own story with endings. Unfortunately, within the week it was released, it was followed by a cease & desist from Sega stating that they were unable to officially host the game for download which is why we can't offer the link here...but lucky for you, I can offer this...

 

And yes, I know it's not Friday.

Free Game Friday: Black Mesa Source

At long last, the mother of all videogame modifications has arrived at our proverbial doorstep. Black Mesa Source is a full recreation of the original Half-Life story done with the new Source engine, and no I'm not talking about Half-Life: Source. Quite a bit of the game has been recreated, including brand new voice acting and music, to give it a more modern look (and to give people like me a real reason to finally beat it). One could say this mod is as infamous as Duke Nukem Forever. The best part of it all? It's completely free and completely sanctioned by Valve. You can grab it up right here, or torrent.

The game isn't entirely finished, but the team wanted to give us something to play as they add-on more of the story when they can. I know I can't complain about that! All you need to take part in the action is Steam along with the Source SDK installed.

So here's to you, reader. Enjoy your free game today!
