It’s that time of the week again, freebie games week. Epic Store making two titles available to download for free: Next Up Hero and Tacoma.
Last week’s giveaway was Torchlight II. Read more about it here. If you missed your chance to get it for free, you can still get it, but it will cost you R150.
Next Up Hero, which was developed by Digital Continue and published by Aspyr Media Inc back in January 2018, is a dungeon crawler RPG (role-playing game) filled to the brim with hand-drawn heroes.
It is a dungeon crawler featuring hand-drawn heroes that hack, slash, bongo-drum, boomerang, and jet their way through Ventures.
You get to choose your hero and start exploring the dungeons straight away. Gear up, gear out and max your stats to progress in the game.
Next Up Hero has a rating of 6 out of 10 on Push Square and Steam, with the Nintendo lagging behind with a meagre 5 out of 10 on Nintendo Life. You will need an AMD Radeon HD 6850 or Geforce 650 minimum to play.
I’ll admit, Next Up Hero was a bit lacklustre. There is not much of a storyline and strategising is either a hit or a miss. While the concept is intriguing, the game lacks substance. That said, I see how the game can be fun, if albeit a bit monotonous at times.
I give it a 6 out of 10 as well. You have until 30 July to download the game for free. Get it here.
Tacoma which was developed and published by Fullbright back in August 2017, is an adventure Indie game. It’s weird, to say the least… But quite enjoyable.
An Abandoned Space Station. A Mysterious AI. And You. The crew of Lunar Transfer Station Tacoma were going about their workaday lives when disaster threw them into chaos.Fullbright
It’s now up to you to discover what fate awaits your crew. The game is bold, it’s innovative and an intriguing follow up to the acclaimed Gone Home
Six crewmembers lived and worked on space station Tacoma, forming relationships, experiencing love and loss, and facing crisis together. Discover not just what happened to these people, but what makes them who they are, through your role as an interactive investigator.
The story is told through a series of fully voiced and animated interactive AR scenes, immersing you in the events on Tacoma. Every facet of the crew’s experience on Tacoma is part of your investigation.
Explore Tacoma Station both physically and digitally. Unlock doors and drawers to find meaningful objects, notes, and physical artefacts, while simultaneously exploring extensive records of the crew’s digital communications and personal thoughts.
You have until 30 July to download the game for free. Get it here.
Torchlight II, which was developed by Runic Games and published by Perfect World Entertainment back in 2012, is a co-op RPG (role-playing game) filled to the brim with randomised levels, enemies and loot.
Capturing all the flavour and excitement of the original, Torchlight II expands the world and adds features players wanted most, including online and LAN multiplayer.
