Racketboy Advent Calendar of free PC games!

by J T Thu Dec 02, 2010 2:03 am

I've decided to post a free PC or Flash game for every day leading to Christmas, like those advent calendars where you get a chocolate for every day of December.

It's December 1st as I type and I'm starting this off with a wonderfully ridiculous little game called Octodad.

Image

You are an octopus trying to blend in to a suburban lifestyle amidst the humans. Don't act too weird or you will raise suspicions and your family members or friends might discover your secret!

Happy Holidays!



EDIT: Most of the games in this thread will require you unzip a file that may be in the form of .zip, .rar., or .7z. I recommend the following freeware program for all your zip file needs:

Cool idea JT, thanks for the effort (I doubt I'll be able to jump in right now, but I want to check some of the games you suggest later).

The Octopus game you started off with is a really wacky concept!

December 2nd. Time for the 2nd free game!

This time it's Casebook: Episode 0- The Missing Urn

Image

The Casebook Trilogy is a series of FMV adventure games about detective work. They use some interesting technology that lets you walk around in pictures, so the graphics keep their photorealistic look even when you're not in a cut scene. Episode 0 is meant to be kind of silly in the quest you are on, but it does introduce you to the style and gameplay of the series.

Download the game here:

You guys are terrible.

Noise's comment really reminds me of an advertisement with an open fire in a living room, a bit out of focus in the background and a lady in the front.
Most people didn't notice the fire at first!
