If you grabbed Alien: Isolation last December, you should still check it out over on Epic because this time they have included the DLC that wasn't included last year.


In Brief
An educational word game with three main modes of play. You can see a video of game play HERE
The Game

TEXT is an interesting take on spelling, letter recognition and typing skills. If like me you can only type by looking at the keyboard then checking the monitor to see if you've completed correctly some of the exercises may give you low scores. Also, I found looking at the keyboard then at the monitor several times and more in quick succession started to give me a little motion sickness. That said, this is an excellent word game with three different modes of play each of which has three further modes of play, giving you nine different games.

If you have children who are still learning their letters or you want to improve your typing skills this is a tool that can help towards accomplishing that; however if you really want to learn to touch type, there are dedicated applications that can help in that regard.

Rather than post a large wodge of text to explain the different modes of game play I've posted screen captures of each main mode and some of the sub modes below; also, all the modes are briefly explained in the introduction to the game above (just below the timer and green download button).

















Other free games worth adding to your game library

The latest Epic freebies include Alien: Isolation, A first person psychological/survival horror game based on the Alien movie franchise and set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. It was previously given away on the 21st December last yea; however this latest giveaway also includes the DLC that wasn't given away the first time; so, if you grabbed the game last time, you still need to go to the site and grab the DLC which adds some extra missions and some skins. Also, this is an opportunity for those who missed it the first time to grab it now. I bought Alien: Isolation when it was first released on Steam back in October 2014 as I love the Alien movie franchise and have purchased all of the games related to the franchise. My favorite game in the series is Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 that was originally released 21 years ago, and which always gave me the same adrenaline fuelled rush I got when I first watched the original franchise. It was later re released on Steam and is now only £3.99. The re imagined version Aliens vs. Predator released in 2010 looks better visually, but IMO does not have the same scary moments when Aliens suddenly pop up in front of you coming down dark corridors. Even today the original scares me and I get the same feelings I used to get as a child when hiding behind the sofa trying to watch Dr Who.

We also get Hand of Fate 2, an RPG roguelike deck builder card game; Master a living board game of infinitely re-playable quests - unlock new cards, build your adventure, then defeat your foes in brutal third person real-time combat! (combined cost of both games is over £50/$70/€58).

From Tomorrow, 4pm UK time, the games changes to Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms with add-ons. All players who log into Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms through the Epic Games Store between Thursday 29/4/2021 at 11AM Eastern and Thursday 6/5/2021 at 11AM Eastern will receive the Epic Champions of Renown add-on worth over $100.

Please see Delenn's threads for other Steam and Non Steam freebies HERE and HERE respectively. There won't be new freebies added every week from these sections apart from the Epic games, but it is worth checking them regularly for details of any games going for free. Delenn usually posts details when a game is being offered free for a temporary period. These include games from Good Old Games (all DRM free), Ubisoft's uPlay client, Valves Steam client, EA Games Origin client and other indie developers.

You'll find hundreds of freeware games of all arcade and indie genres on Itch.io and Caimans Games as well as other sources. Please do check out the game discussion forums for older posts HERE (the sticky section is useful). Many of the earlier posts may be out of date with respect to the links I and others have provided to the free games; however, you only need to know the name of the game to find most of them via other sources. Many of those games from 2008 to around 2017 were posted as part of a project to supplement the lack of weekday games when the game giveaway went to weekend only games around Easter 2008 (mainly instigated due to the financial crisis of 2008) until November 2018 when Falcoware stepped into the weekday slot; however, from around 2015 onwards we did start to get the occasional Steam key for various games offered as limited giveaways, with a restriction on the number of keys available (anywhere from 25 to 2000+). These included over 60 decent AAA games and indie arcade games ; for example some of the better AAA games included , lucky Warhammer: Vermintide 1 & 2 plus DLC for version 2; Dreadlands, Mount & Blade: Warband, Immortal Unchained and Conan Exiles.

I've not posted details of any Indie Gala freebies since my older computer went on the Fritz back in October last year. Since then Indie Gala have added quite a few more free games, some of which are definitely worth downloading. You can find the latest freebies HERE and their showcase list, which includes all the freebies still current; (many of which have been included for a couple of years now) HERE.

It’s worth adding these links to your favorites and checking regularly for available freebies. Most are only free for a specific time. If you miss the deadline you’ll miss out. Once added to your account, they are yours to keep. :)

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game and it found zero hits from 60 antimalware engines. The downloaded executable may include some low level adware that only opens your browser to Falcowares home page after the game has installed, but does not inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcowares home page it earns them some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. You can see the results of the scan via the following link:

Whiterabbit-uk, I trained as a typist in school, so my speed is pretty good, but this would be fun as a 'refresher'. Thanks for the pics and to GoTD for today's game.

We finally got a heavy rain to tamp down on the ash we had from a neighbouring island's volcano. It's a good day. Hope yours is go swimmingly too. <3

But I don't think it teaches you to place your hands correctly on the keyboard and what finger to use for each letter.
