One of the sites I visit absolutely every day is Giveawayoftheday (here), a site that is exactly what it sounds like: A news blog.
I’m kidding. It’s a site where they give away normally for-fee applications, for free, for a 24-hour period. I’m not sure how they pull it off, but they do, and it works really well.
I’ve found some great software there, but only recently discovered the best part: the Game Giveaway of the Day site.
Every day, there’s a different game available to you, for free. It’s only available from 3am EST to 3am EST (12 to 12 Pacific, which makes more sense). You don’t get upgrades, but you get the game, no strings attached, absolutely free.
Today’s game, for instance, is “Kingmania: Play a quick action strategy game, different from any you have seen before! Kingmania is a fast and simple, yet challenging, game that will test your ability to make quick tactical decisions. You control different buildings, using their power and the power of hordes of your lieges to defeat your opponents. And if you like online challenges, you can play with your friends in multiplayer mode!” It’s normally $20, but is free today.
The games range from first-person shooters to world conquering quests to word games- a little bit of everything. I’ve downloaded a few, kept a couple. It’s some good stuff, and at least keeps you busy for a few minutes looking.
Also, there are rumors of their greatest hit games coming back, tomorrow, for free again. Go check that out, it should have some great games.
The site is here. Enjoy!
