While we already reported on some great indie deals, we figured that throwing in a few more free options could help you keep going, if you’re low on funds. Here are a few interesting Beta releases and demos that recently came out.
The first choice is a fairly traditional title. The pixelated Dungeonmen: Men of Dungeons recently released a free Beta version of its fantasy RPG with added humor. The title in itself is worth a cheap laugh. According to IndieGames.com, the game starts with some slight nudity in the introduction, before pursuing a known trope of adventuring. Players can customize a team and deck them out with spells, equipment, skills and so forth. You can grab Dungeonmen here.
Our second title is a bit more outlandish and will not be for the casual player. The open Beta for Taijou describes itself as a bullet-hell platformer and that’s about the most sense this game will make. Players try to rush through 2D levels, while a near-impossible stream of bullets fly their way. Twitch reflexes will be tested in this game where the smallest increment of space is the difference between life and death. There also seems to be boss fights and some sort of absorption mechanism. See if you can measure up to the challenge by downloading the game here.
Another more eccentric title now available for tryout is Fairy Bloom Freesia. This side-scrolling fighter is released a demo to prepare players for its English localization effort. In the game, players play a woman that must protect her territory from a slew of monsters by beating the living crap out of them. The titular character Freesia will have a range of attacks and combos at her disposal to make this work, but it will also be possible to unlock new abilities to keep the gameplay from falling into routine. This definitely looks like a game that you’ll either love or hate based on its anime “doujin” theme. Apparently, this release will receive a Steam version somewhere this month, so this would be the perfect time to try it out. You can grab the demo for Fairy Bloom Freesia here.
