I highly recommend it.

It's a 2D platformer adventure game with a good story to it, and its full of little secrets and even has multiple storypaths you can take , and multiple endings.
It can be quite challenging at time , but it wouldn't be as fun if it was easy.
CeeJay, I already made a thread post of Cave Story back in April last year, I guess you missed it.

Good to see you enjoyed it though, I know I did when I stumbled on it.

Didn't miss it .. I've read the all posts in this thread.
But it was made back in April last year - I simply forgot

As part of their promotion work for Sid Meier's Railroads 2kgames appear to have quietly released the original Railroad Tycoon for free. Highly recommend it (thank christ I only discovered this at the END of my break from work).

Digital Eel released 3 of their games as freeware recently:

In other freeware game news, I'm a bit surprised to see GamersHell.com say that 3 Starwraith 3D games have just been released as freeware today.

Download links
Star Wraith: Shadows of Orion
Star Wraith IV: Reviction
RiftSpace

Thing is, Star Wraith: Shadows of Orion was apparently posted as freeware back in 2006? Regardless as to when it was actually 'liberated', its always cool to see commercial games being released as freeware!

I'm currently working on a complete list of all the free games mentioned here and in the linked resources.

It will take some time .. I started today when I got up and I'm going to bed now , having worked on it all day.

When the list is done I'd like for it to be included in the Wiki and have comments , mini-reviews , screenshots and ratings.
If you've played any of these games please give them a rating so we can separate the good from the bad.

I'm think a x out of 5 or x out of 10 system would work well.

F.x.
Echoes : 9/10
Cavestory 9/10
Anarchy Online 2/10

Something like that.

Here is the list so far - remember that it's still a work on progress so some URL are missing and there may be duplicates :

Very misleading. I have the CD version so hadn't tested it.

Portal , The Flash Version
http://portal.wecreatestuff.com/portal.php

It's a 2D Portal game and just like the original it's a great puzzle game.

I recommend it.

It's creators later made all the 40 levels into real 3D portal levels and released them along with some extra bonus maps in a mappack for Portal :

I should also mention that a 2D flash version of Half-life 2 exist and it's also free.

It's called Codename Gordon and it can be downloaded via Steam , but is no longer mentioned on the Steampowered pages because the author site address that it links to , have since been taken over by a cybersquatting Hentai site.

To install you can type steam://install/92 into a browser or the windows Run dialog , if you have Steam installed already.

EDIT : Made steam://install/92 a link you can press to install Codename Gordon.
