The new free game from the Epic Games Store will delight platform fans. Epic offers us this week one of the best games of its kind, a great classic for many lovers of independent titles.
Every week, the Epic Games Store offers us one or more free games. Every Thursday at 5 p.m. sharp, PC gamers can discover new titles and permanently add them to their collection without paying a penny. An appointment that has become a must for the curious. This is all the more true since the Epic Games Store offers games from all walks of life, from AAA to indie games and genre games… There’s something for everyone.
The new free game from the Epic Game Store is a gem!
This week’s free-to-play game from the Epic Games Store is one of the indie scene’s biggest classics, Cave Story+, a somewhat dusted-off take on Cave Story, one of the first indie games on PC. Released for free in 2004 on PC only, Cave Story quickly established itself as one of the best games of the moment. It is also considered a true classic for many players, a real nugget and one of the pioneers of the independent genre. Building on its success, the game will be entitled to a Wii version some time later and will eventually take root everywhere, even on Switch with precisely a paid and dusted version, Cave Story +.
It is this version that will be offered today, Thursday August 31, 2023, at 5 p.m. fiery. Cave Story+ is a metroidvania-leaning platformer and a tiny bit challenging when it wants to be. A game with simple but addictive gameplay that has even established itself on the speedrun scene.
What will be the next free EGS game?
After keeping us waiting until 5 p.m., the next free game from the Epic Games Store has finally revealed itself. Since the Thursday, September 7 at 5 p.m.so you can get your hands on Spelldrifter. A title that mixes tactical RPG game elements, asking us to position our troops well while paying attention to the environment, to the card game. It will indeed be necessary to build a deck of several cards with various capacities in order to carry out many missions. Very strategy-oriented, we will have to face a whole bunch of enemies, including the boss who is quite angry. A small indie game that seems to be nice.
