Every week Epic Games, the creators of the Unreal Engine and Fortnite, give out a free game on Thursdays at 10 AM MST. During the last 15 days of the year, they give out a free game every day at 9 AM MST. Today, I'd like to attempt to predict what genre of game you are most likely to get from Epic's free game program.
These days there are so many options when it comes to the games that we play but what about the beginning? How did we get to the days of loot boxes and the way games are? I humbly present, a history of video games.
The Lion's Song: One Last Hurrah
Everyone has that spark inside of them that drives them. For some it's math, others it's music or art. The Lion's Song is a game about what it means to achieve personal greatness.
Space: the final frontier. Out there, no one can hear you scream but what happens when things go wrong and everything is not what it seems? Today, we're talking about 2017's Tacoma where the deeper in the ship you go, the plot thickens.
It was dark and stormy night...on this Return of the Obra Dinn we must find out the fate of every crew member using logic and deductive reasoning.
Mutazione: Gardening & Gossip
I played this game at some point during this time period to give myself a break from school in 2020. Today, we’ll be talking about “Mutazione”. Not going to lie, when I first booted up the game I thought it was gonna be a scary game but I was pleasantly surprised!
Pillars of Earth is a beautiful game. It looks like a painting in some places and in others a really good comic. I want some of the art for Pillars of Earth up on my wall. Daedalic Entertainment games made this. I haven't played many other Daedalic Entertainment games but Pillars of Earth kind of restored my faith in the company. I'm not going to lie. Deponia is comedic but this is a work of art.
Hue: Brighter For The Better
Around here, we love indie video games. The smaller teams, the less is more ideology, the creativity-- we love it all. Hue is an indie game that starts in a world of black and gray but through your gameplay becomes vibrant and vivacious.
As a kid, did you ever wish you could put on a costume and get powers? Costume Quest 2 lets you do this and save Halloween!
Do you ever go down rabbit holes on the internet, look around, and realize it's 5AM and you've learned way more than school ever taught you? I've got just the game for you: Her Story.
