Area 51 is free, there's a legal copy on moddb, but you need to search around for the 1.2 US patch in order to get it running. I'll post links if I ever get it working

I just read that the good open source clone of Minecraft, Minetest 5.0.0 has been finally released :
https://www.minetest.net/downloads/
changelog since last release :
https://dev.minetest.net/Changelog

No idea if mods and subgames are all up to date for this new release (at the time i write i imagine the heavy majority aren't) or if you're going to have to wait for a bit until each dev update their work(as the default subgame shipped with Minetest is a bit bare bone, to enjoy Minetest you really need mods or a different subgame ).

This is... bizarre... A game that not only supports mods, but builds them into the core of the game and even the concept of the game... I didn't even think I'd never see the day, the idea never occurred to me

Which mods or subgames would you recommend?

For what i played i had taken a liking of the Lord of the Test subgame , lot of content, danger and locations to get into :
https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5578
From what i read it is not updated to this new version of the Minetest engine yet, on their github their last commit was in january so i imagine they'll still update it at some point for the new version.

There's a subgame that try to clone Minecraft as much as it can if you wish to play something that is more similar to it :
https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?t=16407
The developper of it is very active so it should be updated soon enough

After that when it comes to mods if you wish to play with the default subgame that comes with Minetest, there are so much very different stuff that it's hard to make suggestions as it's really to each their own, but i think the most important mod to give those world the game generate a bit more life is the Mob_Redo mod that had some wildlife/monsters.
https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9917
Without this one the default subgame really feel so empty.

Of course you can also join on the many servers if you wish to play in MP, every servers have their set of mods so you'll get a different experience.

This is... bizarre... A game that not only supports mods, but builds them into the core of the game and even the concept of the game... I didn't even think I'd never see the day, the idea never occurred to me

technically Minetest is only an engine, but to give something for players to actually play it is shipped with a default subgame named "Minetest Game" , but as said it's rather bare bone (less things to do and discover than its obvious inspiration Minecraft by example), so either downloading a much better and complete subgame made by someone else or downloading one of the many many mods to improve this default "Minetest Game" is recommended

Missed the news about it but you can get a free copy of Morrowind until the 31 march if you create a bethesda account and probably have to get their launcher too whatever it does because apparently everything need a launcher nowadays, i guess data farming is really making a lot of money.

Rogue Survivor

An old zombie outbreak game that apparently got put down and picked back up years later.  Looks fine for a night or three of fun, might try myself.

Age of Wonders III is free on Humble Bundle for almost 2 more days.

The bad news is the massive amounts of DRM. And I failed the tutorial on my first attempt, suggesting the game is not user friendly.

Its massive amounts of DRM is... Steam. The account thing you can just skip.

No clue how you lost the tutorial, though. Just played through it, it hands pretty much everything to you and curveballs are pretty nil. Did you ramp up the difficulty or somethin'?

Any case, got it, so thanks. I'd been eyeing 3 for a while since it seemed about as good as the previous AoW games, but the price never got low enough I could convince myself to splurge on it. Free is good price, heh. DLCs apparently add a fair bit to the game, somewhat unfortunately, and they're still full price. Base doesn't seem particularly bad, tho'.

If you link your https://www.games2gether.com/ account with Steam you get Endless Space 1 Complete for free. The site is more or less mandatory for extras if you have ES2.
