iD Software, those masterminds behind RAGE and RAGE HD, are thrilled about getting 100,000+ Facebook likes — so much that they’re celebrating by giving away downloads of its RAGE and RAGE HD apps until next Wednesday, Aug 24. While both apps are universal, the HD version boasts enhanced graphics for Retina displays and iPads.
The premise is simple. Okay, no it’s not, but it sure is fun: It’s a quasi-RPG (role-playing game) where you are a contestant in a wacked-out, futuristic game show that has you battling mutants in a post-apocalyptic doomsday setting. Looks like a blast, with the only pesky criticism being that you can’t wander around the game environment — you can only move in predetermined ways set by the game. But it’s still fun, and for a bargain basement price of NADA, it’s tough to complain.
Before you snag this, you’ll want to be aware that these are big honking files (at 540 and 747 MB), so make whatever room is necessary beforehand. Then you can grab your download here (RAGE) and here (RAGE HD).
