Remedy the 25th birthday by making your first game free forever

Quick, I say remedy, you say … well? If you said Death Rally and not Max Payne or Control then you are either tremendously smart or you looked at the headline of this story. For the studio’s 25th birthday, the developers are making their first game free to keep forever. Great news if you’re into bloody car racing from the depths of the 1996 Grindhouse.

Nowadays, Remedy are best known for their supernatural twin peaks-ups from the third person. But to celebrate that they’re really a little younger than you, they’re making their first video game free forever – and you probably couldn’t be further from their later work than Death Manson̵

7;s Carmageddon-esque vehicle homicide.

Death Rally is shockingly a brutal top-down combat racer from the most edgy depths of the mid-90s. Equip your engine with guns, bombs and pointy pieces and set off under the slogan that you can’t be overtaken by a rival if it’s a smoking, bloody roadside crater.

While there was a remake in 2012, what you get here is the ’96 Original Wot, a game that kicked off Remedy on a path that eventually led to brilliant control. It was already free in 2009 in a kind of limited freeware form. This time around, Remedy is giving the whole thing away to keep until the end of time (or, well, Steam).

While I haven’t played it, I think it’s an intriguing, curious plunge into the depths of the studio’s history. If you want to destroy a couple of dozen jeeps, the Death Rally can be picked up on Steam for free.
