Rock, Paper, Shotgun(RPS) has a weekly feature "Free games of the week" where they list a few free casual games from Steam, Itchio.io and Jolt and other places. Most are downloadable games. Some are silly; some are thought provoking :thinking:and they are all free( Or were when these articles were posted).

This is the most current article:

This is last week’s:

“About Rock, Paper, Shotgun: RPS is about PC gaming. Lovely, delicious, strange and compelling PC gaming. It’s written by a gathering of Britain’s top games critics, and aims to cover everything from the latest breaking stories about the biggest releases to esoterica from the format’s most obscure peninsulas. Our philosophy is that AAA and indie are just as likely to produce fascinating games worthy of our time and coverage, and give all extremes equal prominence.”

I am going to post two articles every 3 days(give or take) as to give everyone a chance to check them out. Then when we get caught up…I will post the “Free Loader” Articles…

Please fele free to comment on any of the games mentioned…:+1:t2:

I have an itch.io profile where I create lists to throw in loads of awesome, mostly-free, games I find there.

I love the name Rock Paper Shotgun :stuck_out_tongue:

Back on topic. I’ve always been interested in free indie games.
Itch.io has interested me but I’ve never gotten to making a acount. Which makes me sad. None the less I’ll take a look at your list🙃

This is a very interesting game! I have been clicking through it… man… this is scary stuff!

Makes me want to go back to living in a cave…

On Itch.io there are some “free all the time” games, shareware, and some you have to pay for. And some of the games have sales.

The RPS article I posted just lists free “all the time” games.

I am joining you.:dizzy_face:

It’s time for my next installment:

This is one of the comments on the article.

“As I read this column each week, I’m pleasantly surprised at the quality of many of these freebies. I can appreciate how much work goes into even some of these “basic” games, so I’m continuously amazed that some of these devs don’t offer their games on Steam in order to make a couple of bucks. Given how much asset-swapped garbage appears on Steam on a regular basis, it seems like a no-brainer to try to sell superior games like some of the games showcased here.”

With it’s being Mother’s Day here…How about some games with “female protagonists”?

They said…“So Too Many Chefs is basically Cook, Serve, Delicious with a roguelike UI”? Be sure to read the comments because they offer games in there too.

I can’t believe it has been 4 weeks since I posted in this thread. I am so fired…:exploding_head:

Here are some games where you ARE the chair, you are Trapped and you Hyperloop Escape or dance with some skeletons. And if you are really good, you can listen to some stories and have a Strawberry Daiquiri. It’s all so weird!
