Liberated Games- free commercial games

1 Comment

I’m always searching the Web for cool stuff and ran across a neat web site that has obtained permission to release a bunch of commercial games for free. The web site is called Liberated Games, appropriately enough. All of the games you can download are several years old but many of them are well known names in gaming circles. I find these older games very appropriate to load on older laptops and even the Sony U-70 as their hardware requirements are often “easier” on the hardware. And the price is certainly right. The games have been released under several free licensing schemes and some of them even offer source code for budding game coders who can benefit from seeing how some popular games are coded.These are not the slouch games you might expect, no, you’ll find such big names as Beyond Castle Wolfenstein, Beneath a Steel Sky, Doom, Doom 2, and Hidden and Dangerous, to name a few. The site has all of the licenses available for view for each game so you can be assured it’s a legal download and what your rights for use might be. Worth a free look. :)

Hi James,

I’m thinking of purchasing a Tablet PC/Convertible. I was wondering if you could confirm that my new purchase would be able to play games (all be it probably older games).


I’m currently leaning towards the HP TC4200 due to it’s small form factor, integrated keyboard, reasonable weight (just over two kg) and good battery stamina.

I intend to use the TPC in my new job, which requires alot of travelling to perform audits, producing checklists, making presentations and will require me to have alot of information (pdf’s) at my finger tips, but of course I also want to play games while relaxing :-)

I have a PPC (Loox720) but feel that a TPC will remove the need to convert data in to various formats, while also allowing me to produce documents and notes on the fly.

Thanks for any help
