First Person Platformer ‘The Free Ones’ Lets You Soar Through The Skies

As a forced laborer escaping from an island, first-person platformer The Free Ones has you swinging all over the place with your trusty hookshot.

While the game attempts to create an interesting narrative out of your predicament, the main draw of The Free Ones is its wide open spaces and physics-defying movement. Your hookshot attaches to all wooden surfaces, allowing you to quickly traverse large distances.

Maneuvering around these areas might not be scientifically accurate, but it feels good. The game doesn’t restrict your movement too much by tying your running to a stamina bar or the need to watch out for fall damage or somesuch. It is all about motion and momentum, moving ever forward and clearing obstacles that might seem insurmountable at first glance.

When outside, the level design accomodates for that by offering you beautiful vistas and interesting places. Underground areas are less impressive, but it is still nice to figure out the way forward and pull of those increasingly difficult jumping puzzles.

You can purchase The Free Ones from Steam for $ 14.99. For more information, visit the game’s website or follow developers Farsky Interactive on Twitter or Facebook.
