Free Games on Epic Store Every 2 Weeks

#1

Post by Shane » Thu Dec 27, 2018 8:32 pm

Epic is offering a free game every two weeks through 2019 to promote the launch of their new store. First one is Subnautica; next one will be Super Meat Boy.

The way people get support for those games seems to be posting in the Steam forums, but I'm okay with having yet another launcher for a couple dozen free games.
Competition is a good thing. It's a chance to crush people.

I kinda want to see Steam buckle under this. It should make them try harder.

Subnautica is phenomenal. Super Meat Boy has been given away and bundled so many times that I'd be surprised if there were many people left who don't have it and still want it, though.

And yeah, competition for Valve is welcome.

I've never played Super Meat Boy. Then again, I don't have steam. There's really no excuse.

^ You're not missing much unless you're really interested in difficult platforming.

Super Meat Boy is a fun time and very charming (fantastic soundtrack too), but I think at this point indie games have lapped it. It's obviously very influential but if you're looking for Hard Indie Platformer you've got tons of better options now.
