Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam
I mentioned a bit ago that there are often 'Free to Play' games available on Steam. They change over often so there is often something new and exciting to try out in your spare time. However, there are also some completely free games on Steam. That means they are yours not only to play, but also to keep.
Usually these games are pretty short and they are all indie games. However, it is a great way to experiment with new genres, ideas, and just have some free fun. Here are just a few of the games available for free:
- Amoung Ripples
- BloodRealm: Battlegrounds
- Without Within
- Pinball Arcade
- Color Symphony
- Wild Warfare
- The Cat and the Coup
- Sigils of Elohim
This is just a taste of the free games available to play on Steam right now. To find others, go to Steam Search and type in "free to play" - you can also type in "free" but it gives you 3x the results and most aren't free. The "Free to play" search will bring up all the free to play and the actually free games. You can see the difference in the screen capture below:
The first two games are actually free - to keep - while the third is only free to play but could be withdrawn at a later time. I just picked out the first eight I saw, but there are loads of these games on Steam just waiting for you to find them. There is no need to throw money at Steam for anything but your favourites when there are plenty of free options.
I am downloading Sigils of Elohim as we speak. I LOVE puzzles games but my old favourite (Jewels of the Oracle) is very outdated and they really have not come out with anything to equal its splendour. I am hoping this sweet little free puzzle game will be just the distraction I need when I want to relax.
I will probably download Amoung Ripples as well. It is a cool little indie game where you control a pond's ecosystem by adding different creatures to it. See how your creatures interact and create a cool little underwater eco-system. This is also a fun game to entertain your cats.
When you download your free games, let us know which ones you choose!
