Ancient Evil
You can see a video of game play via the Steam page HERE (the game is due for release on Steam on the 26th June). We are getting a free standing version courtesy of Falcoware.
The first level is easy. Just walk around the level picking up weapons health and a shield, then walk towards the far right of the level and enter the portal. Movement is accomplished using the WASD keys
Pressing the enter button seems to change the appearance of the assets in each level.
I wasn't able to figure out how to actually defend myself by fighting enemies despite picking up weapons and armour. I tried various keys and key combinations, but always died when confronting enemies; however, it is possible (and may be the point of the game) at least in the early levels to avoid direct conflict with enemies and be able to progress to later levels by getting the enemies to chase you, forcing them to onto traps, thus clearing the way for you. Once you pass the first few levels, some enemies fire missiles at you. The way to the portal is always blocked by various enemie combatants and devious traps; your task is to clear the way to the portal and get to the next level. There are also potions available to boost your health and repair armour that you may need if you failed to totally avoid contact with an enemy. To pick one up, just walk over the potions icon.






Don't forget to check out the giveaway forums. Delenn has posted the latest freebies, some via Steam, some via GOG ( War Wind and others HERE) and of course Epic Games weekly giveaway (until Thursday it is Overcooked). Just pop over the the game discussion threads HERE and HERE for links to most of those games.
There's also a couple of new additions to the Indie Gala developers freebies HERE and HERE.
Finally, Delenn posted details of an amazing deal yesterday, it's a bundle containing approaching 1500 game projects called The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, the bundle is available via Itch.io and is estimated by be worth over $8000 (yes, eight thousand plus dollars) if you purchased each project individually. The developers of these games have donated their games towards this bundle and you can get it for $5 HERE; since the bundle went live, they have already received over four million dollars towards aa goal of five million. Seriously, there are some fantastic games in that bundle. Celeste alone still costs $19.99, so just one game in that bundle would still be saving you 75% if you were only getting one game, but you are getting almost fifteen hundred games and that number is rising daily. Not all the games ar ein the league of Celeste and others (e.g. Oxenfree, Overland, Art Sqool, Wide Ocean Big Jacket, Hexagon, A Short Hike, A Mortician’s Tale, Quadrilateral Cowboy, Gunhouse, The King’s Bird, Minit, A Night in the Woods and Fortune-499).

If it's about going to the installation folder of the game , just say "yes" .
I will remove the "forbidden" section and repost ... :-)

It could be that I'd not moderated since early morning. I've not deleted anything. The red and white file is the one thaat should be used to play the game. It is the Falcoware installer.

Whiterabbit-uk, hi .
It's o.k .
I can see my comment now .
I know about the red and white "game.exe" .
We have talked about it some time ago .
The normal thing is that for the most of the game installations , the created shortcut
points to that file (game.exe) .
The weird thing is that there were a few times that the created shortcut pointed to the
(name of the game).exe and in some of those times , when I double clicked the
shortcut I've got the "not a valid Win32 application" error .
Then I've fixed the shortcut , to point to the the red and white "game.exe" , as it should ,
and the game worked without a problem .
And therein lies the conundrum .
Why is this happening ?
My brain is not going to explode , if I'll never find out why , but I am curious ... :-)

Game looked good but Bitdefender threw up a bunch of different warnings and blocked the install. That's the first time Bitdefender has blocked any games from GGOTD on my system, including many from Falcoware and dozens of others. Either Bitdefender has gotten more picky, or Falcoware has gotten more risky. Sorry, a game is not worth the risk.

I've tested the game via Virus Total and it gave a clean bill of health from 62 different anti-malware suites. The gamegiveaway team have been offering games since December 2006 and have never given away a game infected with malware. What your scanner is picking up is the Falcoware installer, which does include low level adware, though this isn't a malicious adware because it does not install anything to your system and only runs when you boot up the game; plus the installer also opens your browser to Falcowares home page when you shut the game down. This is so that Falcoware can earn some money, part of which is paid to the developer of the game. If Falcoware and all the other free games sites like MyPlayCity, FreeGamePick, TooMky Game, Gametop and others did not do this there would not be any free game sites.

Also, if it did contain some malware, we would have been inundated with comments from the community.

Regards Whiterabbit

Hi WR .
Happy birthday ...(better late than never) ... :-)

About the game ...
I've installed the game under Windows XP and Windows 7 .

My Win XP PC Specifications
Windows XP Pro 32bit , Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz ,
4 Gb memory (DDR 2) , NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .

System Requirements : Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10

It doesn't work under Windows XP as expected .

__ERROR__Microsoft.NET Framework__ %1 is not a valid Win32 application .

My Win 7 PC Specifications
Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1 ,
Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz , 4 Gb memory (DDR 2) ,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .

It works just fine under Windows 7 .


Playing the game ...
I went and took the sword and then pressed ALL the keys of my keyboard .
Nothing happened .
Sooooo , why do I get to have a sword ??????????????
As you said , the only visible way to go , is to move on the board , trying to
make the enemy fall into a trap .
That could be enjoyable , IF I didn't HATE so much the WASD keys ...
And I ask again , why do I get the sword ...???
Also , as you said , hitting the "enter" key , the player starts the level from the start .
Something else that I've discovered is that hitting the left arrow key , the player is send
to another level .
I don't know if this is just in my case , or for all the players out there .
Some feedback would be nice ... just curious ...

The game looks very nice and interesting .
I would love to play it , but as I said earlier , I hate WASD .
I've tried many times to play games using (forced) the WASD keys and failed miserably .
In the year 2020 , I find it ridiculous NOT to have the choice to use the arrow keys and generally
not to be able to reassign the keys .
That's my permanent grouch with all the Falco games .

That's all for now .
Thank you GOTD team and WR for all that you offer to all of us .

Ps .
There is something weird that I've noticed happening in the last months and forgot to tell you about it .
When I install a game a shortcut is placed on my desktop .
Some times the shortcut leads to the (red and white) game.exe and some other times the shortcut
leads to the (name of the game).exe .
Some times , when the shortcut leads to the (name of the game).exe , and I double click it , I get
the "not a valid Win32 application" error .
I've discovered that if I go to the installation folder and double click the
red and white game.exe , the game works without a problem .
I don't know if this is happening only with my PC , or others had the same "problem" .
I just wanted to tell you about it , in the hope that you'll have some idea about why this is happening .
Also maybe this info proves to be useful to someone ho encountered the same "phenomenon" .

Thanks for the heads up on the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, Whiterabbit! Astonishing number of titles, including some pretty well known ones (Catlateral Damage had piqued by curiosity before but I never picked it up). Anybody looking to support such a worthwhile cause should definitely check this bundle out while it's available, if you only ever play one or two of them it's worth it.

Dawkinsdog, totally agreed that the BRJE deserves everyone's support. Note though that a significant proportion of the titles in the BRJE are rules for table-top RPGs, stories, game soundtracks, tile sets, print-and-play card decks, etc. Or put another way, quite a number of the 1,637 titles (maybe 25%?) are not "computer games" as such.

Obviously it's awkward and time-consuming to look through ALL the titles before purchase, so I hope that info. is useful to others!

quel sont les touches clavier pour jouer ?

Reply   |   Comment by james de paule  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

james de paule,

WASD pour le mouvement. Je n'ai pas trouvé d'autres clés pour combattre, donc je suppose que vous devez attirer les ennemis sur les pièges qui sont dispersés autour de chaque niveau. Appuyez sur la touche Entrée pour modifier les objets du niveau et redémarrer le niveau.

Désolé, je n'ai pas pu être plus utile

I just wanted to add that The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is a minimum of $5. I gave more and so far the average contribution has been $10.72. All proceeds will be split 50/50 between the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Community Bail Fund.
