What is so good about Penumbra? Well I’ve not seen a narrative like this in a virtual world before, it’s original and fresh. As I’ve read on some of the Frictional Games messageboards the level of immersion is great. And that for a free game that has some very nice graphics, which are coming from a 3D engine which the studio developed by itself. Another great thing is that it is a FP game, but not with a lot of shooting. Just a truckload of suspense. Check out the trailer for yourself here:
So good free games still exist! I often check the Full Games section at Gamershell to find some very nice games. This way I discovered Warrock, a Battlefield 2 styled FPS which was in Beta testing a while ago but will be back on the 14th of July. But also a nice RPG called The Spirit Engine. Both games are very addictive, so don’t say that I didn’t warn you! Free games can be surprisingly good and they give a fresh perspective on the gaming industry that seems to be stuck in more of the same, already at the beginning of its existence.
