Freeplay of the week: Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf

Monday, October 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm

First off -- lets be clear here: Cactus' Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf may very well be the greatest name of anything, ever. It might also be the strangest thing you play this year and that's not something I say lightly. You need to stop what you're doing, and dig into this game right now, because you will be entertaining, confused, baffled and possibly offended. It's equal parts music video, game, and a drunk child's insane rambling, and it's the perfect fit to anyone suffering from ADD or who's just incredibly bored on a Monday afternoon. More >>

Freeplay of the week: Fisher-Diver

Fishing games aren't hard to come by. They were one of the first games to ever exist and they continue to be a popular genre in Flash games and as awful arcade cabinets in bad bars. 2DArray's Fisher-Diver is a fishing game, but it's not like any fishing games you've seen before, especially when you factor in the unique visual style and the rather odd gameplay.

Freeplay of the week: Forget-Me-Not

Brandon Williamson's Forget-Me-Not is easily one of the best games to have graced iOS so far, but those who don't own an Apple device haven't been able to see it for themselves. Until now, that is, because Williamson just released free versions for Mac and PC. Seriously, just go download it right now; it'll be well worth your time.

What do you call a hat that's not yours? Notch-o hat bahaha.
Mr. Notch, the guy who wholesale penned that brilliant Minecraft game, built a game in a few days and is letting good folks (like you, dear Divisionaries) try their hands at it freemiumly. It is called Prelude of the Chambered, and it looks pretty familiar.

I'll embed the link with a description on the other end of this blog -- just after the jump -- for those of you who are intrigued by little indie games and clever people. Hell, I'd be excited if I were you, because I've played Prelude, and take it from me, people, it is quite rich and very enthralling. Quite. Particularly for what it is.

Free Play of the Week: Hide

There are plenty of games out there trying to create horror and confusion in the player, but few do as well as Andrew Shouldice's Hide. At its core, it's a pixilated, first-person exploration game, but digging a bit deeper into it reveals a game that is not only a pleasure to look upon, but a mystery all its own. More >>

Free play of the week: The Cat and the Coup

Peter Brinson and Kurosh ValaNejad's The Cat and the Coup is not your normal type of game, but that's exactly what makes it so damn appealing. It's a documentary game in which you play the cat of Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran who was overthrown by a coup d'état by the CIA. As far as the game is concerned, its your run of the mill physical puzzler, but there is so much more layered inside of it that it's one of those rare games you have to play to truly understand.More >>

Free play of the week: Proun

Proun is the newest in the popular trend of indie games adapting the pay-what-you-want model. From free to a billion dollars, you can send developer Joost van Dongren however much you're comfortable with at the moment. We'd suggest something like a bajillion dollars, because this conceptual racing game is far more fun than it should be, combining the likes of F-Zero-X and an abstract painting into a crazy but addictive game.

Free play of the week: Super Puzzle Platformer

Super Puzzle Platformer's name is enough of a descriptor that not much more is really needed to describe what it is. But just so we're all on the same page -- it's a brick matching platforming game -- think Mr. Driller in reverse and you'll be on the right page. It's a hell of a lot of fun for such a simple concept too, so prepare to waste more than just a few minutes on this one if you're the type to care about leaderboard position.More >>

Free play of the week: Stencylworks

Let's be honest -- the last thing you need to hear about right now is a new game. With E3 already blasting the expectation section of your brain into overdrive, we decided for this week's free play we'd do things a little differently, and write about a new, free program called Stencylworks that will help you make your own game, no matter how programming inept you are.

IndieGames is reporting that a German group of developers is remaking Maniac Mansion. If you are a child of the 1990s, you may not know what that game is.
