This week’s Indie Freebies are The Man From Fugue State, a Spaghetti Western-themed point-and-click adventure; Fugitive Shift, a stealth puzzle game; and MURDERSHIFTERS, a cutesy arcade shooter with a twist.
First up is Salvador Higgni’s (aka Graham “Haggis” Nichols) The Man From Fugue State. So dust off your poncho, light up a cigarillo, and prep your sardonic one liners, because it’s set in a Spaghetti Western-themed world where you quite literally play a man with no name. Following a strange dream involving a giant evil eye looming large above a desert mountain range, you awaken in a train boxcar with no recollection of who you are or how you got there (a “fugue state”, geddit?). Finding a cryptic message on a wanted poster, you reason that the key to unlocking your past lies in tracking down the nefarious outlaw El Marcado.
