Free games from Epic Games Store — 22 to 29 October

‘Costume Quest 2’

Costume Quest 2 – which was developed by Double Fine and published by Majesco Entertainment – is a turn-based action-adventure game with an OpenCritic Rating of “Fair”, and Top Critic Average of 71.

“Explore spooky time-traversing landscapes, don adorable new costumes that transform into powerful Hallo-warriors, and collect even Creepier Treat Cards to wield in combat against a legion of hygiene obsessed baddies”.

Matt Elliot from Games Radar gave it 3.5 stars out of 5, describing it as “more treat than trick”. Elliott added that “some unfortunate repetition means it’s best enjoyed in moderation, but it’s still colourful, sweet and slightly addictive”.

‘Layers of Fear 2’

Layers of Fear 2 – developed by Bloober Team SA and published by Gun Media back in May 2019 – is a somewhat creepy first-person psychological indie horror game.

The emphases is squarely placed on exploration and the story, giving players control over a Hollywood actor “who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner”.

“Your past has helped to mold you into what you are, forced upon you the skills required to hone your craft. That same past has scraped deep furrowing scars into you, not on the outside where the world can see, but in a place buried so deep within that it has become shapeless”.

Note: This game contains mature content recommended only for ages 18+ and the carries a Mature 17+ ESRB rating for Partial Nudity, Strong Language and Use of the Alcohol. Sorry, kiddos.

It’s now up to you to “push those memories down” while still allowing the “experiences to drive you into who, or what, you must play”. Have fun but be warned! It’s a bit of a wild ride.

Download both Costume Quest 2 and Layers of Fear 2 from Epic Games Store before 22 October 2020. We have Blair Witch and Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered coming up after that.

The tagline for A Machine for Pigs (which is set in the year 1899) is apt: This world is a Machine. A Machine for Pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of Pigs.

‘Kingdom: New Lands’

Kingdom: New Lands – developed by Noio and published by Raw Rury – is a strategy and survival simulation game with rulers who need all the strength they can muster to find new kingdoms.

“Be brave, ruler, and fight to the bitter end, lest these New Lands conquer you instead”.
