Grey Goo free to try this weekend on Steam

Grey Goo

Grey goo is free to try this weekend, but then, when is it not? Simply go out into the street and taste that squishy thing on the pavement—or, better yet, don't ever do that. Wait. Please stop. However, Grey Goo the game is only free to try this weekend, because, you see, Petroglyph's RTS is having a free weekend on Steam.

You know how Steam's free weekends work by now, I'm sure. Valve automatically, and slightly annoyingly, adds said game/s to your library, and then you look at the size of the download and never install it. Or, if you're not me, maybe you give it a go.

It might be worth it this time, as Ian Birnbaum rather liked the old-fashioned RTS when he reviewed it back in January. Grey Goo has since been expanded with the 'Emergence' campaign which, like the main game, is currently 60% cheaper for the next few days.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
