You may recall a few of the times I’ve posted about a promising indie game from Retro Affect called Snapshot, in which the main character can take pictures of things and thereby remove them from the world, and paste them back in at will. I even interviewed the creators a while back. Well, Snapshot is now available for PC on Steam, and is currently 10% discounted until September 6th. Thought you might want to know. Enjoy the launch trailer for the title:
What are your impressions of Snapshot? Are there other upcoming indie games you’re looking forward to? Let us know what you’re thinking in the comments!
In case you haven’t played Valve’s superb physics-bending puzzle game, Portal, now you have no excuse. As part of Valve’s support of using their games in classrooms and education, the original Portal is again free on Steam, this time until September 20th. It just seemed like something you would want to know. Head on over and pick it up, I think you’ll be glad you did.
As part of The Über Update, Team Fortress 2 is now free to play. Yep, those who have never played before can now jump in and enjoy the cartoony shooter free of charge on Steam. Not just for a weekend or some silliness like that – forever. Those who spend any money on the game by way of having purchased it or purchasing something in the Mann Co. Store will be entitled to a Premium account, as opposed to the Free account. Premium users receive a few extra perks, like a larger backpack and more crafting and trading privileges, but everything else is just as it was. Tell your friends, push some carts, and capture some intel!
It’s almost worth another news item to mention that, also part of the latest update, the long awaited “Meet the Medic” video is now available, showing off the Medic’s invaluable contributions to the team. To see the video and to check out the latest and greatest additions to the game, check out the update! For your convenience, I have also embedded the video after the jump. Enjoy!
