No, this isn't a company name (would that it were…)-- just a designation of games that have been released into the public domain, either by its designer's intention or at the decision of copyright holders. Many former commercial games were released as freeware to promote their sequels, e.g. Zork trilogy and Betrayal at Krondor. It also includes most modern interactive fiction (IF) titles.

The following links are our top picks for anyone interested in quality freeware games:

  • The Gratis Gamer - One of the best selection of freeware games on the net
  • GameHippo.com - Formerly Freegames.org, the granddaddy of all freegames sites, with hundreds of games to choose from although they vary greatly in quality
  • Blackeye Software - A small but quality freeware developer who made many unique titles. Besides, they link to our site [EG]
  • Freestyle Freeware: Some of the best freeware games you'll ever find.
  • The Daily Click - Best review/download site for games created with Klik & Play and subsequent programs.
