Two recommendations for quick, enjoyable games!
The Mirror Lied is a 20 minute game built in RPGMaker but it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen on it. Reminds me of Ib in terms of creepy atmosphere, but the horror is really downplayed (you might not even see any horror in it; the studio says it’s not a horror game but I stayed up all night freaked out after playing it). Does some amazing things with music. If you give it a go I’d love to hear your theories! If you enjoy it I recommend To The Moon, by the same studio. It’s not freeware but again it’s built in RPGMaker and again it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen from that engine, and it will make you weep.
Second is a kinetic visual novel called That Cheap and Sacred Thing (TCAST). It takes about an hour to read through. Art is good (and, on one memorable occasion, horrifying and disturbing), writing is brilliant, characters are fantastic. It’s about androids: the heroine’s childhood best friend android and the sex-bot her friends buy her for her birthday are two of the leads. It deserves way more attention than it’s ever gotten, and I recommend it unreservedly (be warned: writer recommends 16+ rating for violence and sexuality). Like To The Moon, it made me cry.
They’re both free, and neither will take you more than an hour to play through. Seriously, play these games.
Hey freeware gameplayers, I need your help?
Have you heard of neftelia? I believe it was brought to the English community through players like MikeNnemonic. (If you have not seen his LP of neftelia, it is here. There are other videos by other players too.) It’s an exploration game which uses RPG Maker 2003 engine, just like more popular known game, Yume Nikki. It was also likened to LSD: Dream Emulator. (I will use these as a tags to reach more people)
The game itself is a great veil of mystery… So long as you can actually get it booted up to play.
This goes along with neftelia2, also. I’m actually good friends with 14, the game’s creator. We have been discussing the issues but even he is unsure why there is difficulty in playing the game. Perhaps it is RPG Maker and it’s unicode issues? So this is why I would like to/find help; it’s for a friend. (btw he was really surprised how exposed his game became overseas★)
I thought I would ask those at Tumblr if they have found a sure solution… I know MikeNnemonic has a short tutorial video in which he thinks may help. I have used his advice before, among doing other things, however that was years ago and on a computer, not my laptop. (Which is in poor condition now and I doubt I could get it running again?) Thing is, I put the game in a flashdrive, and in an incident I had broken it;; (I lost other freeware games too…) I have not tried to modify neftelia2, but 14 believes you can use the same exact methods to start it?
I remember such problems I had encountered;
- Being unable to actually open the game
- Once opened, certain areas would crash
- Certain objects interacted with would crash
There may have been other things, but… I think the main connection would have been the sounds that needed to play, were unable to play…? Did the certain animations also contribute to the error? I am still discussing some things with 14, maybe get more detailed with the problems… but it’s hard for him to be able to do anything and I honestly don’t want to work him over and such.;;;
I hope the Tumblr community can provide some insight/help/tips/ect.
Who plays Knytt Stories??
Knytt Stories is a freeware platformer by Nifflas. (Click to learn more)
I thought I would just promote my friend’s works a little more. I’ve been anticipating it for months now. I can’t wait to play~
I need a good freeware game to play, preferable platform or osmething like Yume Nikki or Ib. It can be horror, just…. Make sure it’s not extremely graphic and that it’s just weird or interesting once you’ve been spoiled enough about what happens. I’d try one of the fanmade games based on Yume Nikki, but I have no freakin’ clue as to how you install them and not wreck your computer, and the instructions that tell you how are confusing.
So, you guys have any suggestions?
Currently looking for any freeware RPG to sink my teeth into.
- Cave Story
- Tower of Heaven
- Digital- A Love Story
- Mad Father
- Witch’s House
- also just kind of working my way slowly through Yume Nikki, it’s mostly taking forever
Downloaded, but haven’t played:
- Space Funeral
- I’m Scared of Girls
Not generally a fan of dating sim RPGs. Too slow-paced and non-happening. If I had to get into specifics, I’d prefer an offline visual novel 2d puzzle RPG with a serious plot like you see in a ton of RPGMaker games.
Got any recs?
