Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale  
EasyGameStation, Carpe FulgurStrategy63.8 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is a game about an item store, the girl who lives in it, and the fairy whose job it is to make sure that the girl doesn't burn down the item store by accident. Playing the game involves gathering items - either by playing the markets in the city of Pensee, or grabbing an adventurer and delving into the dungeons that dot the countryside - and selling them to the customers who come through your doors. Tear, the fairy, is here to collect on a loan your father took out - and she'll have to take the store, which doubles as your house, if you can't pay up.

The game is split into two main parts: selling items, and exploring dungeons. There isn't really much of anything quite like this combination in any other game, and the number of items you can find is massive.

Selling items and dungeon diving isn't all there is to do, however. There's quite a cast of characters to meet in Recettear, some friendly, some less so. Their fates tie into your own, though, and helping them out could lead you to riches beyond your wildest dreams.

Strange Adventures in Infinite Space  
- Windows, Mac
Digital EelStrategy7.87 MBClick here to download

Digital Eel's Strange Adventures in Infinite Space is a space exploration game in which you play an unemployed space pilot, hired by a smuggler to embark on a dangerous ten-year mission in the Sector Prime system. Your employer is willing to part with handsome rewards for any discoveries that you find during this dangerous journey, but return to him late and you will be charged extra in ship rental costs.

The map is randomized every time you play, and interplanetary travel is initiated by left-clicking on a nearby star and pressing the engage button. Your ship can only travel in a straight line, and flying through the Purple Void nebula will only slow you down even further.

Combat is conducted in real-time, with information about the current ship selected shown on the left side of the screen during a space battle. The green bar indicates your shield status, which recharges automatically during combat. The orange bar shows your ship's condition, and when this gauge runs out the ship is pretty much reduced to space debris.

Both the Windows and Mac versions of SAIS are now available as free downloads, and there are a bunch of mods that can be applied to change your ship's appearance, the types of aliens populating the system, and even the effects of new artifacts that you can find during your adventure in space. Some mods like Red Planet and Even Stranger Adventures in Infinite Space act as full-fledged conversions as well, offering a new storyline, GUI and alternate objectives for the players to achieve.

Alex VostrovStrategy2.06 MBClick here to download

Swarm is a customizable strategy game created by Alex Vostrov in one week, where players assume control over a colony of bugs in a two-way battle for supremacy over the map. Health is indicated by two rows of coloured dots at the top of the screen, while waypoints can be moved around by dragging them to a new location using the left mouse button.

Add additional waypoints by clicking on the black flag on the left, choose any location on the map, then left click on the hive and drag a separate arrow towards the new waypoint. Multiple waypoints which are connected to each other can also be designated by using the left shift key when clicking on an existing waypoint.

There are three upgrades to acquire, and AI difficulty can be increased by using command line parameters.

UFO: Alien Invasion

UFO: Alien Invasion TeamStrategy384 MBClick here to download

UFO: Alien Invasion is a squad-based tactical strategy game in the tradition of the old X-COM PC games. However, the game is neither a sequel nor a remake of any X-COM or other commercial title. UFO: Alien Invasion has two main modes of play - Geoscape mode and Tactical mode.

In Geoscape mode, the game is about base management and strategy. You manage the activities and finances of PHALANX, controlling bases, installations, aircraft and squads of armed-response troops. You'll research new technologies and use their results in battle against the aliens. You'll launch your interceptor aircraft to shoot down UFOs and dispatch dropships in response to alien activity across the globe. You can build, buy and produce anything you like, as long as your technology level and your budget will allow it.

Geoscape mode employs easy-to-use time buttons to control the passage of time however you like, automatically pausing whenever there's an important message for you to see. Research will progress and items will be produced as time passes.

In Tactical mode, the game is about taking command of your team in various missions to combat the aliens wherever they might appear. Each soldier gets a certain number of Time Units, representing the total time they have to act during the current turn. All actions in Tactical mode require Time Units to perform. Once a soldier is out of Time Units, he or she can't do anything more until the next turn.

Your mission objectives will vary for each mission, and there are many to perform as the aliens' terrifying plot unfolds. You'll have to watch your back, be quick on your feet, and take the fight to them.

The game engine is based on a heavily modified version of ID's Quake2 Engine. This doesn't mean that UFO: Alien Invasion is a modification or even a total conversion of Quake 2. It is a stand-alone game and doesn't require Quake 2 or any other program to run. All you need to play UFO:AI is a computer running Microsoft Windows or a supported version of Linux.

The updated engine has modern OpenGL graphics and special effects, increased texture resolution, hardware-accelerated clipping of map layers for toggling between levels, a new animation system for player models, powerful artificial intelligence, and many other features.

UFO:AI also supports cooperative team play with multiple players on both sides, up to a maximum of 3 teams for each side, 6 players total.

Ur-Quan Masters, The
- Windows, Mac, Linux
Toys For BobStrategy1.16 MBClick here to download

The primary objective of The Ur-Quan Masters project is to port Star Control II to modern operating systems including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and BSD. The project began in 2002 when the original creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III released the source code of the 3DO version as open source under the GPL.

It has the option of online multiplayer Melee play, something which was not available in the original game. A variety of modifications to the melee have been released by fans, including versions with superpowered ships and numerous planets. As of version 0.4, the long-missing intro and ending movies were finally added, as was an in-game setup menu. The ability to mod the game is one of the project's goals.

The name of the project only uses SC2's name in a sub-title due to not owning the intellectual property rights to use the name. The 'Star Control' IP is owned by Atari, who acquired them when they were known as Infogrames when they acquired Accolade.

While development on the UQM codebase continues, a second group of professional musicians called The Precursors are creating new musical tracks and remixes of the originals. They are an optional package that can be listened to in-game, replacing the original music, or just played with an audio player.

War and Peace
Stephane BuraStrategy2.31 MBClick here to download

War and Peace is a one-button remake of the classic strategy game Civilization, created by Stéphane Bura as a submission for the Gamma 4 game showcase competition. The technology tree which was the highlight of the original series has been distilled down to just two branches of research, and your task is basically to choose whether to dedicate all of your resources into developing war machines or encourage the cultivation of technology advancements.

The implementation might feel simplistic at times, but there is definitely some real potential in this project if the developer decides to take it further.
