A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Follow Theo's dizzying adventure in first-person platformer "The Free Ones". Soar through the air with your grapple, blaze a trail through the canyons and take part in an extraordinary story.

A story with a twist

Play the role of prisoner Theo as one day he manages to escape from the slave mines using a grapple system, before meeting Lana and a group of refugees, who let you in on their plan to leave the island. You accept, but nothing could prepare you for what you will encounter along the way.

A unique grapple system

The unique grapple system featured in "The Free Ones" allows you to take to the skies as you make your way through the levels. Use your momentum to swing through the air and cover considerable distances at dizzying heights. Wooden surfaces are your best ally. Learn how to turn your surroundings to your advantage and use your wits to progress further in the game.

A man-made island

The mines represent an original and varied playground. Scale the wooden structures. Use the moving crates and carts to make your way through the levels. Climb onto the roof of the hurtling trains. Swing across waterfalls and clamber onto anything that floats as you head down the rivers.

Please someone tell me it's not scary


Is a hidden gem this game. It isn't scary at all.



It's a fantastic game that I had a lot of fun with. I really look forward to your futures projects, if you choose to continue making games!


Thank you for sharing this, I was so sad that i had forgotten to purchase the game before it was taken down. I really feel for your story, and I wish you the best in all your future endeavors. If you ever make any additional games, even under a different development studio, I would love to see them.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

This is the original game. It is now free. I do not plan to update it. As the company is now over, I felt bad not to share it to everyone.

So... enjoy ! =D

Best would be to Open Source it, in that case.

Thanks for not let this game die. It's the best game i played. I love the mechanics and the story. It's a shame that it isn't for sale on steam, but thanks that you added here free! I hope you don't give up and in a future you continue doing games of any style because i think you're the best level designer and game designer. I like all in this game and that's not something easy to do.

Hi! Thank you so much for releasing both this and FarSky, I'd hate for these to be lost to time! Do you have any plans to release your other game, Skybreak, or maybe even Overbind? Thank you for your time!

Thanks ;)
No plan to release Sky Break. It does not bring anything interesting for the video game industry (even though it was fun for some players) and it is personnaly full of bad memories.
Regarding Overbind, I would love to play it again, but I lost all the files.. sadly..
