Good morning everyone! It’s casual game update time! We have an average lineup of games this week. There are five available, with three playable on Windows and Macs. As usual, we have a bunch of hidden object games for you to try, but there are also two oddballs. You can go through a new tower defense game or visual novel, if you’d like. This update also marks the first time Big Fish Games is offering free-to-play games. These are ones where you can pay to unlock extra content, but you don’t have to if you just want to play for fun.
