The gaming industry is full of pretty cool people.
One way to tell is to look around and see so many companies, big and small, offering freebies for people stuck at home and taking whatever steps they can to make it possible to work from home.
There are so many freebies that I encourage you to keep an eye on Geek Native’s Free to Download tag. That’s a manageable list to track.
Now, as a general policy, I don’t like to take a ‘Pay What You Want’ product and DriveThruRPG and describe it as ‘free to download’. If you can pay something, then it’s nice to do so. However, Angry Hamster Publishing has just made Familiars of Terra a ‘Pay What You Want’, it’s usually about $8, but now they’re suggesting you download it for free.
In an email to Afterlife: Wandering Souls backers, Elizabeth Chaipraditkul said;
I hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe. It’s been a rough week for everyone and if you or a loved one are being badly affected by the pandemic, my thoughts are with you <3. To do my little bit to help everyone with their social distancing AHP has made the PDF of our game Familiars of Terra pay what you want through the end of the month. So feel free to hop over to DriveThruRPG and pick yourself up a free copy!
While there are some big names offering freebies for a while, I think it’s also worthwhile checking out a new game.
In the fantasy world of Terra, everyone has an animal familiar. This is a setting inspired by YA fiction like The Golden Compass and Wild Magic… or perhaps even by shows like Digimon.
Written by Elizabeth Chaipraditkul and Steffie de Vaan, Familiars of Terra draws on games like Blades in the Dark and Monsterhearts for inspiration.
