Bee Simulator

buzz

Description: See the world through the eyes of a bee! Explore a world inspired by Central Park where you can take part in bee races, collect pollen from rare flowers and defy dangerous wasps. Play with friends or family in three game modes, including co-op and PvP on split screen. The hive awakens as the sun's first rays warm the horizon. It's time to test your wings, receive orders from the Queen and begin your first mission. And that's just the start of your adventures. Humans want to cut down the tree that holds your hive, so your fate – and that of the whole swarm – rests on your tiny shoulders!
Bee Simulator

Bee Simulator

Live the life of a bee! Explore a world brimming with life in which you collect pollen, defy dangerous wasps and save your hive. Play with others in three game modes, including co-op and PvP on split screen.


Unturned

Unturned Beta ~ HeroArt

Description: Unturned is an open-world survival sandbox where you assume the role of a survivor in the zombie-infested ruins of modern-day society and must work with your friends and forge alliances to remain among the living. Find weapons and supplies to survive against the zombies and gain experience points which can be used for upgrades while you progress through the game.
Unturned

Unturned

Form alliances or fight against other players to remain among the living, surviving in the zombie-infested ruins of modern-day society. Scavenge for clothes, weapons, food, and supplies, and craft resources to create your equipment, all while avoiding zombies and other players. Explore vast sandbox maps and fortify your stronghold: zombies are not the only menace...



Bee Simulator has an estimated completion time of around eight to ten hours, but there are a few buggy achievements you might need to watch out for. We don't yet have an estimated completion time for Unturned, which launched last November, but only five of over 1,800 players have managed to complete the game, which holds a fairly sickly rating of 2.58/5, so this might not be one to complete in a weekend. Lastly, Far Cry 5 has a chunkier estimated completion time of around 40 to 50 hours. All three games will be available until Sunday, August 8th, at 11:59pm PDT. Are you happy with this weekend's Free Play Days? Let us know in the comments!
