Downloads are very slow (~330 to 380KB/sec) and my first and second attempts at downloading failed about three quarters of the way into the downloads (first time this has happened with a game giveaway for me). Still, from the videos I've checked out and later from the game play I experienced, today's game looks like a worthwhile download.
Across the Moment is a first person atmospheric puzzle adventure released on Steam 5th June 2017. It was quoted as being the first in a four part series of games; though I've not seen evidence of any other chapters released despite this developer releasing 20 other cheap (£0.79 to £2.09) games on Steam over the past few years. We get a free standing copy of this first chapter courtesy of Falcoware games. As yet there are no Steam community reviews despite having been released over two and a half years ago.
You can see a few videos of game-play .......SPOILER ALERT......... HERE (via the Steam page) and a full walk-through of the game HERE (1hr 32mins), HERE (10mins) and HERE (26mins).

Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:
If Across the Moment doesn't interest you, the latest free games from Epic Games are Offworld Trading Company - Mars has been colonized, and Earth's corporate titans fight to dominate this new market. Competition is fierce in this fast-paced economic RTS (there are several DLC's that can be added but are not free) and GoNNER - a tough as hell score-based procedurally-generated platformer with rogue-like elements. GoNNER is also a story about friendship between Ikk, Death, and a space whale named Sally. Today is your last chance to get them. Later today they will be swapped for three more games (worth a total of of over £37, almost $48 or just over 41€). These are; Anodyne 2: Return To Dust, A Short Hike and Mutazione .
Don't forget to check out the Game discussion threads over in the forums for details of other free games and offers HERE (I've recently updated the thread though 'some' of the links to older bundles are no longer active; however, most of the links still take you to the latest deals); especially Delenns thread, HERE.
More games have been added to the indie Gala freebie section. The most recent are Cat on a Diet a highly satisfying puzzler which brings a ton of nuance and creativity to the genre and A.I.M.2 Clan Wars is an atmospheric open world sci fi simulation and the sequel to the epic science fiction first-person action RPG developed by SkyRiver Studios. Its compelling story and unique look lift off exactly where the original ended. and previous games that have not been removed yet include Shuyan Saga - a graphic novel series where action scenes come alive in 3D combat game play. Set in an ancient Chinese martial arts fantasy universe. To Ash an RPG maker game, Zomteria a first person zombie shooting game, Mechanic Escape - a platform game full of infernal chases. Waste Walkers Deliverance a top town post apocalyptic survival RPG and the sequel to Waste Walkers (also still available HERE)
Also, still available for just over a week to play for free via Steam until Half-Life: Alyx is released on the 23rd March is the entire single player Half-Life franchise, which you'll find HERE (sadly it doesn't include the excellent Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, which is one of my favorite shooter that I still play with a few friends).
Another excellent Humble Choice has just been released for March HERE. There are 12 games available, of which you can choose 10. These include: My Friend Pedro, Planet Coaster + 1 DLC, F1 2019, Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, EXAPUNKS, Turok, Death's Gambit, 198X, Niffelheim, AI War 2, Etherborn. Previously I mentioned that it only costs $12; however, that is only for subscribers of the original Humble Monthly. If you are a new subscriber, it does cost more, but the deals are still fantastic.

Whiterabbit-uk, My download only took about two minutes. Installation offers the option to 'Not add the game to the Start Menu Folder, I like that.

Got the following error, AV was disabled.

The code execution can not proceed because XAPOFX1_5.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix the problem.

Reinstalling did not fix the problem

Raj,

Hi Raj, Go to the Microsoft site and download the latest version of direct X (which is free); that should fix the problem. You can also download the specific dll-file from dll files.com (see link below) If you download from DLL-Files once downloaded copy the dll file to the System 32 folder within the windows folder. I recommend installing the latest version of direct X rather than downloading the library file.


Direct X - https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/179113/how-to-install-the-latest-version-of-directx

dll file - https://www.dll-files.com/xapofx1_5.dll.html

I think I'm done with this. Windows does seem to want me to d/load it. Also why do I get this message from setup.exe: "A required privilege is not held by this client" ?

Hi there - just wanted add my experience to this.
My PC is Win 10, 64 bit.
I have also installed many Falco games, even directly from their website, and never ever had any problems with a virus or PuP. They installed smoothly with no problems.
Any unwanted icons that appear on your desktop are just links if a person would like to download other games. You can delete them without any problems.
I enjoy their games very much and most of them are better that other websites.
So, a BIG THANK YOU to Falco - and, of course a BIG THANK YOU to White Rabbit for these games.

Why does my Oculus PC app start up when I run this game? The first time it also resulted in a new entry in my Oculus library for Unreal Engine (ATM10 01- win 32 Shipping). Is there a hidden VR option (or patch) somewhere within Across The Moment?

Chuck Toomey,

Hi Chuck, I've had the same thing happen with some of the games given away recently, including today's game. As it's primarily a Steam game it may contain code that links to Steam, but according to the Steam version, there is no mention of VR or the use of VR.

Oddly this is the first Falcoware version that opens across my multidisplay monitors. Usually they only display on one monitor.

Half hour download at 300+KB.Disabled Avast for 10 mins.Avast still moved Setup.exe to it's Virus chest.Said it was infected with a pup. Too Bad.

Dusty,

The game contains the Falcoware installer which does phone home to the Falcoware site, plus when the game is launched via the Falcoware installer it shows an advert. Both these are not malicious, but some anti malware suites will tag them as such and may even delete them.
The Falcoware installer enables the developer of the game and the distributor i.e. Falcoware Games to earn money. This is the reason all the free game sites you find these days include this type of advertising and browser openings. They do not affect your system.

Whiterabbit-uk, just found it unusual because this is the first time this has happened for me.Thank you for the come back.

Dusty, I've never trusted Falcoware and won't install any of their software on my system. I don't believe I'm alone in feeling this way. Unfortunately, that's 95% of the games that have been on here in the last 6+ months. They use to have much better (and safer) games here. I'd rather see 1 game that I consider safe once a month than these games every day.

JustAnnon,

Hi Just Annon, have you ever installed a Falcoware game? If so, did it cause any issues apart from opening your browser when you closed the game down and maybe showed an advert for another game while the game was booting up? These are marketing methods that have become very common since the financial crisis back in 2008. Over that period and the following couple of years, many game developers went out of business or bankrupt and several large AAA developers also disappeared because the price of games crashed significantly; for example, prior to the crash arcade games cost almost $20 each, by the end of 2008 the average price of an arcade game had dropped to between $4 to $6 and have remained so since with little increase in the price. For AAA games, if you discount the most popular such as the Call of Duty, Assassins Creed and other big name Franchise's; most AAA games have in real terms dropped in price as much percentage-wise as their arcade cousins; for example, I was paying £30 for AAA games 25 years ago, whereas I'm still paying about the same or less now and quite often I'll buy them several months after release with as much as 75% to 90% off their release price and sometimes even get them for free (case in point the Epic freebies, of which I've received 80 games for free since December 2018, that usually cost between £10 to £30 each, and some of them have been from the big name franchises for example only last week we got one of the Assassin Creed games and several months ago we got three of the Batman Arkham games that I paid almost £100 for when they were released.)
£30 25 years ago, (taking into account inflation) is more like £120 today. So developers have found various strategies to make their games profitable, one of them is to allow game sites to give their games away for free, but usually included with the games installer is a 'non malicious' adware, that does not affect your system files and is only active when you play the game. The browser opening is so that the developer and distributor can earn money via the adverts on the home page and the in-game advert that plays via the games installer. Other ways developers have been able to survive are the indie game bundles that have become ubiquitous, where you can get up to 95% off their games and also the almost constant sales you'll find on platforms such as Steam, uPlay, Origin and others. For most AAA games, they tend to release a game then release loads of DLC that can increase the games price significantly over time, for example some of the simulation games like Microsoft's Flight Sim X and the Train Sims all can cost many thousands of pounds if you purchased all of their DLC's. The Train simulator 2020 alone has almost 570 DLC's (more added every month) costing on average between £11.99 to £24.99 each.
p.s. I don't mean to preach; just trying to explain why developers have subscribed to such practices. I've installed virtually every Falcoware game given away since they started giving them back in Nov 2018 and have never had any security issues with them. I often scan the files before I install them and usually they do indicate some adware, which as mentioned above the Falcoware installer does contain, but it is not malicious and only serves to earn the develper and distributor some cash in exchange for giving the game away for free.

Dusty, :)

No problems, I'm always happy to explain. I've installed virtually every Falcoware offering since they joined the giveaway team back in November 2018 (even ones I've already purchased via Steam) and have never had any issues with any of the games and my computer has had no security issues. Read my reply to Just Annon for an in depth explanation. :)
