free games until December 15: Nightmares from the Deep, and Stand O’Food

G5 Entertainment has made the game “Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, Collector’s Edition” available for free on many devices…until December 15th:

“In Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, you’ll follow the story of an ancient pirate with a forbidden passion. The pirate was cursed and died. His soul never found rest without the accompaniment of his long-lost love.

“You begin this adventure-hybrid game as the director of a nautical museum buzzing with excitement over its newest exhibit: the mummified remains of the notorious 18th century pirate, Captain Remington. In a twist of the supernatural, the pirate awakens and kidnaps her daughter and makes off with her aboard his ghost galleon to his hideout on Skull Island. You soon find yourself aboard his ship, bargaining with skeletons for a map and listening, enthralled, to an undead dwarf as he recounts an unlikely story of romance. You’ll travel throughout the Caribbean to some numerous locals as you try to lift the curse and discover more about this ghostly pirate along the way. It’s a tale of murder and mayhem upon the high seas and you help to make the story right, in the end.

“Gameplay is a bountiful blend of exploration, mini-games, and a choice between hidden object searches or mahjong solitaire. While you can complete the game in a traditional hidden object game fashion, exploring the game’s 45 locations and playing its 39 hidden hidden object scenes, you can also switch to a Mahjong-style mini-game where you’ll take items from hotspots and can use them elsewhere in the game, like in its 16 puzzles or mini-games.”
