Suggestions for Great Free Game Websites

Postby ImaniOU » 17 Feb 2006, 01:50

Have you come across a great website full of free challenging games? Found a game that you really enjoy or have enjoyed playing? Put a link to it on here with an explanation of the type of game it is and why you recommend it!

==================================

To kick off the thread, I present to you:

http://rinkworks.com/adventure/

This webpage has several free online adventure quests games...games where you have to do and find various things in order to complete the game. The Viridian Room is one example of this, but these are text-based games. I just finished The Mystery of Brankly Hall and after my brain has cooled down, I plan on trying some of the other games on this site.

If you were a fan of Choose Your Own Adventure books, you'll enjoy the games here!

Six adventures, four episodes in each. Cool cartoony graphics. One of those games where you have to run around finding things and doing stuff with them. The game's really for kids I think, but I found it pretty damned difficult, although you should remember that I'm not terribly smart.

Another one in a similar vein is called Arcane. This is also a bugger to complete.

A free calming CLOUD game for your computer.

I've been playing around with this cloud game....and it's quite beautiful. It's made by some university students.

http://intihuatani.usc.edu/cloud/


The controls take some getting used to....I reccomend you download and read the instruction booklet too.....or the game won't be as soothing.

It asks for some personal info....but you can just click on Download Directly beside the "submit" button.

My favorite settlers site is here: http://games.asobrain.com/index.html

Orisinal is cool. Nanaka crash was amusing for a while. Yeti sports too. :)

This game was set up on Red Nose day (in the UK) last year. For some reason it's still up. Very addictive, quick and easy game. Great for sneaking in at work. It is rediculously addictive though.

The Kingdom of Loathing

KoL is a free online RPG, all you have to do is sign up for a free account, and they keep track of everything else. Pretty creative and unique ideas with a Monty Pythonesque sense of humor. Your character has to drink booze in order to use adventures, that is, until you drink too much and pass out. Meat is the form of currency in the Kingdom, and foes you have to fight include "drunken rats", "sabertooth limes", and "rushing bums", amongst others...all of which have humorous commentary while fighting.
ohh lord, stuck in ol' Linkou again.
