I've recommended most of the games in this bundle before. If you're missing any of these titles, grab them. These are all high quality titles:

The download link for Ski Challenge 2012 doesn't work anymore, it appears the official site removes the downloads as their "seasons" end. A bit odd, considering they release these as freeware. I did find working links fo SC12 here and SC14 here.

Both work fine and appear safe. Online functions don't work so you're stuck to playing on Training mode but that doesn't seem to be a big deal. SC14 has many more gameplay modes, gamepad support and didn't crash on me on exit, so that seems to be the better choice of the two.

Don't worry, what you bought was the original game. This release doesn't include that, this is the level creator and some player-created levels. So your purchase still holds value.

*click for official page*

This is a game about gentlemen who wear many hats. You will compete in various competitions to see who can stack the most hats on his head at one time. It's silly, but the gameplay is actually pretty fun in an old school arcade kind of way. This is technically a free-to-play rather than simply free game, but I think you can enjoy the game just fine in the base mode (though it would be nice to have that Octodad character unlocked).

One of the Gentlemen is a Corgi. Enough said.

There is a great story behind this game. It started as a childhood dream project that ultimately took 13 years to make. It's a one man project that took a lot of love and a lot of time to make. It's a rather unique game as there is tons of different types of gameplay and the game essentially matures as the developer did over that decade plus.

Blizzard is giving away some of their classic games at the following link:

Blackthorne

Blackthorne is kind of like Prince of Persia if the Prince had a shotgun and was a badass in blue jeans and a wife beater T.

The Lost Vikings
Image
This is the classic viking swapping puzzle game.

Rock N Roll Racing

Back when videogames had limited sound, these digital renditions of Black Sabbath, Steppenwolf, and others made for a pretty rockin' soundtrack. I think the soundtrack was done by the wonderful Tim Follin. I know the SNES version was anyway. This game is kind of like RC Pro-Am with weapons.

Sorry to say this but that's already old news. But for those that didn't know, I guess they'll thank you.
