Have you ever looked at Team Fortress and thought, 'Man, this would make an awesome side-scrolling beat-em-up sort of thing.'? No? Neither have I but I'm glad that someone did. Demaker extraordinaire Eric Ruth recently released Team Fortress Arcade, a wonderfully retro-looking side-scroller. Featuring all nine classes, it supports four-player co-operative play. Needless to say, it also looks rather brilliant in a pixelated sort of way.

Unfortunately, there won't be any hats. But there might just be something better. Game modes. Difficulty Challenges. PvP. Online Co-opt. Those features are all in the works and you will not have to pay a dime for it.

Have I mentioned the game is free? Because it is. Go check it out now. And bring a friend or three.
