Kingdom: Classic and Oxenfree are two more Linux games you can grab totally free

Posted by , | Views: 7,172

The slick deals just keep on appearing and naturally we don't want you to miss out on any of them! Be quick and grab some more free games.

This time, publisher Raw Fury has made Kingdom: Classic on Steam completely free for 24 hours from today, free to keep that is! They also have the expanded version Kingdom: New Lands on sale with 70% off on Steam.

Kingdom is a 2D sidescrolling strategy/resource management hybrid with a minimalist feel wrapped in a beautiful, modern pixel art aesthetic. Play the role of a king or queen atop their horse and enter a procedurally generated realm primed to sustain a kingdom, then toss gold to peasants and turn them into your loyal subjects in order to make your kingdom flourish. Protect your domain at night from the greedy creatures looking to steal your coins and crown, and explore the nearby, mysterious forests to discover curious and cryptic artifacts to aid your kingdom.

On top of that, GOG has Oxenfree (affiliate link) going free for ~42 hours, another that's free to keep! I've played it and enjoyed this one myself, you can see some previous thoughts here.

Oxenfree is a supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift. Play as Alex, a bright, rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on an old military island. The night takes a terrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly gate spawned from the island’s cryptic past. How you deal with these events, your peers, and the ominous creatures you’ve unleashed is up to you.

YOU determine every aspect of Alex's story while exploring Edwards Island, uncovering the base's dark past, and changing the course of your friends' lives.

Also, don't forget about HITMAN that was posted earlier!

I take it as a given that some of them turn out to be anarcho-syndicalists questioning the legitimacy of your claim to power? I mean, I'd be pretty surprised if one of them didn't say something along the lines of -- Strange women prancing about on horseback, waving swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical equine ceremony.

Scratch one more game from my wishlist. Oxenfree I mean. But what's with all these free games lately?

So much free stuff! It's almost like Christmas...

It's nice to have free good games.

It reminds me of the old paper magazine, there was a free game every month for each magazine.

I shouldn't have played Kingdom: Classic to see how it runs on my system.

On the plus side, I managed to make it to day XXXII on my third attempt before everything suddenly fell apart.

Well you know if they don't take the gold they'll just be repressed. ;)

I already have both games so I was hoping to get codes to post them on here tomorrow in case anyone misses the giveaways, disappointed that I can't.

I don't get it. I tried to watch a few gameplays on youtube but they were confusing. What's the appeal of this genre of deliberately badly drawn 2d side-scrolling games? I am sorry if this question feels like trolling but this is the way I see it.

Well, when you're stacking the deck with the "deliberately badly drawn" assumption right from the start, I can see how you wouldn't enjoy anything like it. It's hard to see the appeal to anything when you slam your mind shut before you even approach it.

As to the game itself, I've found that actually doing the tasks, and dealing with an ever larger area that needs to be looked after, is much different than just watching. I personally find it absorbing and the graphics, yes done in a deliberately limited style but I personally value those sorts of limitations, is appropriate to the game's atmosphere.

But I'm not here to sell you on something that you seem predisposed against, and could have just tried yourself for free anyway. If you don't wanna play, you don't wanna play.

Ok. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to try and tell me one aspect of your take on it. To be frank, the "retro"-style of some games turns me off because I played a lot of games in the 80s and 90s, and I felt quite limited by these graphics. Since we are in a time of photorealistic 3D gameplay, people mimicking the limitations of old times seem like a bad joke, or some conservatism against actual, objective improvements. Maybe you are right and I created a mental blockade against this, but when I played 2012 XCOM, I found it amazing that they modernized the game and did not miss the essence of it with much better graphics.
