The Best Free Game on Steam, Bar None

Yes, I will go that far.  Yes, I have played Depression Quest, How Do You Do It? (before it was at the exhibit), and Clicker Heroes (because who doesn’t like a good Skinner Box?).  Yes, I still say that.

So, the most famous designer behind The Stanley Parable is Davey Wreden.  His follow up to that game is The Beginner’s Guide, which I tell everyone to play because I really, really love it. That said, it is not The Stanley ParableThe Beginner’s Guide is a lot more… ponderous.  Slower.  Personal.  It doesn’t have the same wit and cleverness, that bite that make The Stanley Parable rise to the top.  Dr. Langeskov, the Tiger, and the Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist does, and takes it to a different level.

The lesser-known half of The Stanley Parable is William Pugh.  He has a new studio, Crows Crows Crows, has designed a new debut game and released it on Steam for FREE.  If you liked our  The Stanley Parable game share for the intelligence, the self-criticism, and the humor used to deliver them, but didn’t want to spend the money on it (understandable in a way), then pick up Dr. Langeskov, the Tiger, and the Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist right now, this moment.  It plays as fast (or faster) than The Stanley Parable, and it’s free.  Play it once or twice (or even more) instead of binging on videos when you procrastinate today – it’ll be well-worth your time and you’ll probably get a good chuckle.  That’s what I’m going to do.. I only stopped so I could share it with all of you before diving back in.

Also, I still don’t think you can jump.  So.  There’s that.

  1. And yes, it has multiple endings. I only know this because I started googling an image of it, and the first think that it suggested autofilling with was “dr langeskov endings.” Embrace your explorer/achievement types!! Go go go!

  2. This was one of my choices for my lets play. Such a great game and the fact that it’s not too long makes it even better! I played it once through, and it was pretty funny.The narrator’s voice is amazing, there are mixed reviews on steam, but who cares, it’s free! There are not many games that use the same concept as this designer does. I personally like this style of game, it makes me feel more engaged even though it’s a walking stimulator. The level of interaction that this type of style is just more than I would expect from a typical game. Façade is also another game that I like. The use of artificial intelligence is a good touch. I’m not a killer or an achiever by any means, but I also like to stay engaged so these types of games are right up my alley.
