#Freekeyfridays week 62 raffle!

Week #62 of Free Key Fridays raffle is up. If you participate you can win up to three games.

140 is a challenging minimalistic platformer with abstract colorful graphics. Rhythmic awareness is required to overcome obstacles controlled by an energetic, yet melancholic electronic soundtrack.

LA-MULANA is an “Archaeological Ruin Exploration Action Game” in which you search inside ancient ruins, seeking out the “Secret Treasure of Life” – which sleeps in the sprawling ruins of “LA-MULANA” and is said to be the beginning of all civilization. Apart from the plethora of traps lying in wait to stop intruders, there are also monsters on the prowl, protecting the ruins. Head for the innermost depths of the ruins while solving a variety of mysteries, fending off monsters, and disarming traps.

Spell words to attack monsters – it sounds so simple. Mix in poison, spike, stone, whirlwind, flipped, broken, duplicator, and plague tiles and it suddenly becomes a lot more challenging!

That’s it for this week, remember to head on over to the Free Key Fridays page and participate in the giveaway.

With only one day left until the Gabriel Knight Sins of the Fathers - 20th Anniversary Edition launch, we bring you a video starring Sierra On-Line veteran, Jane Jensen.
Here, Jane discusses the differences between developing a game in the early 90s and today. We also see her playing the 20th Anniversary Edition, revealing the improvements and updates to the original as well as some of the reasons behind the additional content in the remake.
In the video we see Gabriel’s new diary, the hint system, new puzzles, some familiar locations now updated as well as new screens not found in the original.



It is an honor to see Sierra On-Line legend, Jane Jensen play Gabriel Knight. It grants an insight into many of the decisions that carried through the game’s creation. The game could not have been possible without her vision or the community’s support. Tomorrow, both a new generation and longtime players will be introduced to Gabriel Knight, the wait is nearly over!
