Epic Games Store: Free Games (30th April – 7th May 2020)
Here is a roundup of the free PC games currently available from the Epic Games Store until 7th May 2020
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person survival horror game released in 2010 by Frictional Games, and is also available for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (as part of the Amnesia Collection which also includes Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Amnesia: Justine).
If you’ve never played it before; Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a genuinely scary game, it doesn’t need cheap jump-scares to give you a fright. The sound design, music and atmosphere all build into an unnerving experience. Gameplay revolves around exploring an empty castle and completing puzzles to discover the story – making sure to manage your sanity which is affected by the darkness. Grab a candle and avoid those monsters…
The latest entry in the series – Amnesia Rebirth – is scheduled for release in Autumn 2020.
Crashlands is an action-adventure role-playing video released in 2016 by Butterscotch Shenanigans, and is also available for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
My first impression of Crashlands was that it looks very similar visually to Don’t Starve – and that seems to be a frequent comparison given to the game. Crashlands does seem to be aimed at a more casual audience with an easier difficulty (full disclosure – I’m terrible at Don’t Starve). The options for crafting and exploring an alien planet look quite fun, though there might not be much replay value here. Looks worth a try anyway!
