It's not possible to get sick of hearing about free games is it? I hope not, as I have another few here for you to help you pass the time with if you're stuck somewhere.

Sorted in order of when they run out:

Also, if you're looking to mess around with some game creation the asset artist Kenney has released three big packs on itch.io that are free to grab until today at 11PM UTC.

Do check out our other posts, as there's plenty going around right now. Hopefully by highlighting them, you' won't be bored any time soon during this strange and scary time we're living in.

Lucah: Born Of a Dream looks great, but I tried to watch some gameplay videos and now my eyes hurt. Might give it a miss after all.

I can recommend Milkmaid of the Milky Way, it's a nice little point and click!

I feel kinda bad having all these interesting free games at my disposal that are absolutely deserving of my attention, but then ignoring them in favor of playing more Minesweeper.
No idea what the deal is with my recent Minesweeper addiction, it just makes me so angry that I can't help but constantly replay it.

oh man I'm so overwhelmed and worried about this whole pandemia thing. That almost took all my energy and mood of playing games... but still I like to "acquire" games and stack stuff, this articles about free games are one of the few things that makes me forget all the mass media news bombarding about the pandemia. keep them coming.

Have you ever tried the Hexcells series? It's pretty much Minesweeper but better in every way.

I don't know if you're aware, but there's a "fair minesweeper" variant:

I guess it's too soon to suggest "Plague Inc: Evolved" then... /s

Oh, you're talking about free games? Well maybe "Plague Inc: Evolved" shouldn't be on this list.
