F-1 Spirit Remake
- Windows, Linux
Brain GamesAction/Arcade18.6 MBClick here to download

Another Konami classic, the F-1 Spirit Remake is a niche racing game that will only appeal to fans of the original. Each track consists of several laps to complete, and requires plenty of practice just to squeeze in a top finish.

Not a bad effort but one that will not be appreciated by many, even with new features not found in it's predecessor.

Michael Mateas, Andrew SternAdventure167 MBClick here to download

Facade is an artificial intelligence experiment by Michael Mateas and Andrew Stern, an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. Within this architecture they have built a dramatically interesting, real-time 3D virtual world inhabited by computer-controlled characters, in which the player experiences a story from a first-person perspective.

The character you play is a longtime friend of Grace and Trip, an attractive and materially successful couple in their early thirties. During an evening get-together at their apartment that quickly turns ugly, you become entangled in the high-conflict dissolution of Grace and Tripfs marriage. No one is safe as the accusations fly, sides are taken and irreversible decisions are forced to be made. By the end of this intense one-act play you will have changed the course of Grace and Tripfs lives, motivating you to re-play the drama to find out how your interaction could make things turn out differently the next time.

Somewhere between a video game and a drama, Facade takes advantage of voice acting and a 3-D environment, as well as natural language processing and other advanced artificial intelligence routines to provide a robust interactive fiction experience. Using full typed sentences the player can coach the couple through their troubles or drive them to be more distant from each other.

This work is unlike hypertext narrative or interactive fiction to date in that the computer characters actively perform the story without waiting for you to click on a link or enter a command. Interaction is seamless as you converse in natural language and move and gesture freely within the first-person 3D world of Grace and Tripfs apartment. AI controls Grace and Tripfs personality and behavior, including emotive facial expressions, spoken voice and full-body animation. Furthermore, the AI intelligently chooses the next story 'beat' based on your moment-by-moment interaction, what story beats have happened so far, and the need to satisfy an overall dramatic arc.

The player can take an active role in the conversation, pushing the topic one way or another to provide an interactive stage-play. These stage-plays are saved as scripts which can be saved after the game is finished.

Facepunch StudiosAction/Arcade27.5 MBClick here to download

Facewound is a 2D action game with zombies, guns, ragdoll physics and the occasional exploding barrels that'll blow everything in its proximity into pieces. The W, A, S and D keys can be used to move the protagonist around the city or climb buildings. Aim with the mouse, and left click to shoot. Press the R key to reload, and use the B key to unlock new weapons. Right click to enter focus mode, helpful when taking down airborne enemies.

A control configuration menu is included, and at least one checkpoint can be found in each level. The config.cfg file contains a number of keys which can be used to explore hidden features. Development work on the game has been abandoned for more than two years.

In Factorium players get to control a masked hoverboard rider as he makes his way through a forest teeming with robotic plant hybrids, armed with a selection of eight weapons that he can deploy on screen using the drag and drop method. Purple gems that defeated enemies leave behind can be collected to increase your score, which is tallied and submitted to an online leaderboard once you've beaten the game.

Factorium only features one playable level, although it will take you a good ten or fifteen minutes to reach the end of it on your first go.

Factory Balls 2

In Factory Balls 2, the objective of the game is to change the shape and color of your balls and match a picture pasted on the side of an open box, simply by using the ball with a set of tools provided in each of the thirty levels included.

This sequel comes with unlimited retries and an extended collection of tools to use, though the latter half of the game is still extremely repetitive due to lackluster puzzles and lengthy steps required to solve the last couple of stages.

In Fairune you play as a warrior princess who is on a quest to rescue the four elemental fairies and defeat the Dark Lord that threatens her peaceful kingdom. To recover health, just stand still for a couple of seconds and your life gauge will refill automatically. Pressing the space key displays your inventory.

Expect to finish the quest in roughly half an hour or so, although the time taken to search for false walls might bump that figure up a bit.

Fairy Attackers
Alpha Secret BasePlatformer24.2 MBClick here to download

Fairy Attackers is a brilliant retro platformer by Alpha Secret Base, creator of the excellent Umihara Kawase Shun tribute called Gambare Natsuki-San. Press the Z key to throw your weapon at enemies, or hold the down arrow key to use your shield and reflect harmful projectiles.

The up arrow key can be used to open doors, activate objects and initiate conversations with other characters. Touch the stone with inscriptions to save your progress, or drink from the tiny fountain to restore health. Once you've gained a travel companion, press the C key to hold it for an additional float ability. A map can be accessed by using the S key.

Falling Troy
Alaric HolbertonPuzzle17.5 MBClick here to download

Falling Troy is a puzzle game which involves stacking three or more blocks of the same type in order to gain points. Multiplier bonuses are awarded for high stacks, though the current level is incremented as well whenever a player has acquired a certain amount of points.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the left control key to jump off the floor, a block or even perform wall jumps. The direction in which you jump off a falling block determines the position at the bottom of the well it will be moved to.

Hempuli, Arvi TeikariPlatformer2.12 MBClick here to download

FallOver is Hempuli's physics-based platformer that feels broken at first, but then becomes rather fun after spending a couple of minutes coming to gripes with an unbalanced protagonist and the floaty control scheme. You play as a gentleman who has to collect coins and reach the white flag safely, as he is prone to fall over with the slightest touch of any bump on the landscape. Players can stand up to three times if they happen to trip, and a quick restart button is included in case you use up all of your retries.

There are nine levels to beat in total.

Family Treasure, The
buloghtAdventure0.96 MBClick here to download

The Family Treasure is another lovingly crafted AGS adventure game by buloght that uses a point-and-click interface made popular by classic Lucasart titles. Graphics are pretty good for an amateur effort, and the music fits quite well.

A story about pirates and hidden treasures may not be original but the gameplay more than makes up for it.
