Tiny & Big: Up That Mountain beta demo
Tiny & Big: Up That Mountain, from Black Pants Game Studio, is "set in land where common physics apply, but everything else looks different. You are Tiny, a technophile guy with a ray cutter, a gripping device and a fine attitude towards the world." Unfortunately, your nemesis strikes, and now you must journey up a haunted mountain in search of a pair of fine rib underpants. Download the latest beta demo for Windows, Mac, or Linux.
Rise of the Reds mod for Command & Conquer: Generals Zero Hour
Rise of the Reds version 1.7 for Command & Conquer: Generals Zero Hour "expands on the design of the original game and adds two new factions and new Generals to the fray while still keeping the same overall design elements of the original game." The newest release features a redesigned Global Liberation Army, a fully equipped Russian Federation, and new powers and weapons for the United States of America and People's Republic of China. Download the mod and get ready for war.
StarForge alpha demo
CodeHatch launches a very early playable alpha demo of StarForge, which you can read about right here on Shacknews. A cross between Minecraft and Unreal, build a base to the stars with defensive and offensive weaponry to survive against the alien hordes in the extremely rough but fun StarForge alpha demo.
Against the Wall alpha demo
Venture into the rather weird world of Against the Wall, where the world is one giant vertical landscape. Designer Michael P. Consoli describes the game as "a solitary character who is struggling to return to a village located miles above the starting point. Along the way, you'll encounter strange sights, abandoned settlements, expansive castles, dangerous creatures, and complex mechanisms that will help or hinder your progress." Check out the alpha demo for Windows or for Mac.
