    Epic is also offering "Century Age of Ashes" as a free to play game. The previews remind me of SSI's "Dragonstrike".

    Microsoft is offering "Mario Run Pro"

    0.467.4 - Everything not saved will be lost

    This is a very special update. In a time of a global crisis, there are causes that need your contributions more than we do. Today I’m lifting all the restrictions of the demo version, making it essentially a full game. Instead of buying ΔV, spend your money on something important and help someone in need. You can get the full version of ΔV when we have peace again.

    Maintenance Logs
    - Removed all demo restrictions, making the demo essentially a full game. There are more important things than games you should be spending your money on now.
    - Additional story event.
    - A new gravimetric readout shader for EIME and Bald Eagle HUDs make the readouts much less noisy and more useful.
    - You could not click on tabs in the Hardware menu if your monitor resolution was small.
    - Adjusted audible warning levels on Elon Interstellar Model E heads-up display to not trigger warning sirens when fitted on a fission craft.
    - Eagle Prospector HUD will now fit well on 1280x720 displays.

    This week on Epic, a 2.5*feature. Two arcade classic remakes and a free DLC for Dauntless.
    Centipede and Black Widow are the arcade classics, but I'm not sure if Centipede is a literal arcade game, I've only seen it on home platforms such as Atari (early, don't recall the number, never owned an Atari but the kid next door did while I had Intelivision), Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and Apple II.

    There is a fan remake of "Forsaken X". It may not be 100% compatible with Win10, but works with older OSes.

    Somebody has ported/enhanced the old Apple II game "Deathlord"
    https://rikkles.itch.io/deathlord-relorded
    Be warned, if you thought the first three Wizardry games were hard, Deathlord is worse. It's worse than Might and Magic II in the beginning when you roll up characters and have no money and no equipment (you're supposed to use the starter party and then transfer gold & equipment to the new characters you create).
    I admit I pirated the original from the Apple Asimov FTP site in high school back in the mid '90s, and never got very far into it.
    No matter how well you play, you can get killed early on thanks to the RNG.

    Ghostwire Tokyo Prelude
    On another board they claim this is not a demo despite recent trends of calling demos "Preludes" or "Proluges", but a short interactive novel to promote the story and setting behind an upcoming game.
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/ghostwire-tokyo-prelude


    Also a few unannounced additions to the free games section

    I thought I mentioned this on the thread but can't find it. If it's a repeat of an earlier post I apologize.

    Spiderweb software released the Exile series as freeware. The Avernum games are remakes of the Exile games updated for modern systems on both Mac and Windows.

    You can't play Exile on modern Intel-based Macs, but need PPC based ones. I'm pretty sure at least Exile I works on late-model 68K Macs too. LCIII and "newer".

    You can't play Exile on 64-bit Windows either, but you might be able to use XP Mode. They work fine with Windows 9X and should work fine with Windows XP and if you have trouble, use "compatibility mode" for Win98. Later versions of 32-bit Windows definitely need compatibility mode. Get properties on the .exe as an administrator and find the compatibility tab and select Windows 98.

    Games are listed here, note that the Avenum games are demos, the Exile games are full installs but the link to the download for Nethergate seems to be missing. I know I downloaded it a decade ago, but now it's missing.
    www.spiderwebsoftware.com/productsOld.html

    I strongly suggest reading this first if you aren't planning on using Windows 9X or a pre-Intel Macintosh.

    Not sure if I should include this one, but Sacred Angel 2 is free on X-box until the 27th.
    https://www.xbox.com/en-us/games/store/sacred-2-fallen-angel/9pdg551f7qgc

    That said, if you'd like to beta test a game called "Keo" that seems like a modern "car wars" knockoff, you can do so for free on Steam also until the 27th.

    This was posted to the GoG forums yesterday, but the link was broken so I didn't report it. The link now works for me.
    https://freebies.indiegala.com/super-toy-cars


    Also Amazon Prime gaming is offering the GoG version of Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion for free to people who sign up for Prime Gaming.
    You can take the free trial and the quit after a month, and since it's the GoG version you can keep the game.
    You can only sign up for a free trial once a year however.

    This week on Epic, a double feature: "Rogue Legacy" and "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter". The latter is a repeat from the 12 days of Christmas giveaway, but if you missed it on December 19th, now's your chance.

    IndieGala has a new temporary giveaway. "Grab the Bottle". Never heard of it, but it looks like early VGA graphics or an odd EGA palette. It could be a classic game updated to run on Win10 like Leisure Suit Larry was (and those were definitely EGA graphics). Reminds me of Dynomutt, and I think Inspector Gadget did it too in the cartoons.
