Games blog Critical Distance presents 99 Free Games from 2009.

A lot of these games have been featured on Metafilter before, but it's worth a look to find something new or something you may have missed.

I know that the game just came out, but this list is SORELY missing Captain Forever.

Tried the first one so far, thought it was really cool. Also gave Captain Forever a spin, although I think I need to give the manual a more thourough read through.

I recognize a bunch of them from seeing them here first. Among other things, Metafilter is an awesome place to find new games.

And about Captain Forever, if you export your ship to a hyperlink, and save it as a bookmark, you start with that ship. That giant, wonderful ship you made before you tackled that one guy you should have run away from.

Since I've been stealing away from family all day to play these, I feel I should at least make a comment:

This is great.

This was the perfect thing for me to hide from my insane extended family with. Just perfect.
(I was a big fan of "Continuity." it has a really clever, really simple/intuitive gameplay mechanic. Makes you wonder why you haven't seen it before.)
