Update April 6, 2023: Like almost every Thursday there are not only new free games, the clock is also ticking for the current free titles. So this time you only have a few hours left until Shapez takes over from Tunche and The Silent Age at 5 p.m. German time. So stay tuned if you don’t want to miss the two games, you can find out exactly what to expect below.
Original message: It’s that time again: Epic is giving away two games for a week that you can pick up and keep forever. The only requirement is of course an account with the Epic Games Store. We will briefly introduce you to both titles and reveal who they might be worthwhile for.
The Silent Age
The Silent Age: Post-apocalyptic adventure with 70s flair shows its world in the trailer
The setting of The Silent Age is probably quite unique: the character Joe actually lives in the 70s, but unexpectedly travels to the future, more precisely to the year 2012. At this point the earth has been destroyed and humanity has died out. But you must now find out what happened in order to perhaps be able to avert this gloomy future.
In the rather short Point & Click Adventure, which you have played through in one afternoon, you have to explore your surroundings and solve puzzles in order to progress. The title is quite popular on Steam and can convince 93 percent of the players.
Suitable for whom? Above all, The Silent Age convinces with its entertaining story, the successful atmosphere and the entertaining puzzles. If that’s enough for you and you don’t need cinematic action or overly challenging gimmicks, then a few hours is well invested.
Tunche – Trailer: Koop-Beat’emUp in the rain forest
Tunche is about a natural being of the same name that has gone mad in the story and is now flooding the rainforest with evil creatures. You take control of one of five characters and use their special abilities to fight your way through the jungle.
However, there are also roguelike elements involved, so if you die you have to start over. However, you can get support and go with up to 3 friends. Tunche gets relatively good ratings on Steambut is also criticized for being very repetitive.
Suitable for whom? If you enjoy beat ’em up and other fighting games, like the visuals of Tunche, and aren’t frustrated by roguelike elements, there’s little reason not to give the game a try.
Do you like any of this week’s two free games? Can you maybe even recommend a title yourself, or advise against it? Feel free to write it in the comments!
