    All of the above offers expire at 4:00 pm BST on Thursday 22 April 2021


    3 out of 10 – a playable sitcom, set in the world's worst video games studio: will the developers ever make a game that scores higher than 3 out of 10?

    Season 1 (all 5 episodes in one bundle): 3 out of 10: Season One

    Season 2 (all 5 episodes in one bundle): 3 out of 10: Season Two

    3 out of 10 Season 2 was last week's free game from Epic; I wasn't around to post it but it turns out it's still free. Not sure if it will be permafree though, so best to get it asap if interested.

    Sorry for the multiple posts, thought it best to separate the free games so they're easy to find.

    Two free games from Epic this week.

    Hand of Fate 2 - a living board game set in a world of dark fantasy

    Hand of Fate 2

    Alien: Isolation (yep, the Ridley Scott alien)

    Play as Ripley's daughter, Amanda, in this survival horror game. This offer includes free DLC, The Last Survivor. The DLC is priced at £2.79 but will be automatically included for free in your purchase when you claim Alien: Isolation. To confirm, just scroll down the product page after checking out and it should say 'owned' next to the DLC.

    Alien: Isolation

    Hmm - I haven't finished Sunless Sea yet, but Alien Isolation got loads of good reviews.

    Just not sure I'm up for the nerve shredding terror that game will probably put me through.

    Hand of Date 2 looks like fun, might pick that one up and add to the collection of games.

    @Kindler did you get Alien Isolation in the end? It was already on my wish list and although it'll be a while before I'll get to play it, I claimed it anyway. Looks like the perfect game for Halloween.

    There are some rather oddball free games offers that are newly available:

    Tonight We Riot - a pro-communism, retro pixel art dystopian action game E:tearsofjoy:

    If you fancy some beating up some capitalists from the safety of your sofa, visit the GOG homepage, log in/register for a free account and scroll down a bit until you reach the giveaway banner, click it and a DRM-free copy of the game will be added to your account.

    The next free offer is from Epic and is different from usual, in that it's not a game but free content (apparently worth over US $100) for a free to play game, Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms (strategy/single-player/RPG).

    As far as I can tell, this giveaway is a content pack for characters and items. I'm not familiar at all with this game but am just posting the info in case it's of interest to others. From the store page (emphasis mine):

    All players who log in to Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms through the Epic Games Store between Thursday 29/04/2021 at 4 pm BST and Thursday 06/05/2021 at 4 pm BST will receive the Epic Champions of Renown

    This offer is available to all players logging in through the Epic Games Store, both new and existing. You must instal and log in to Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms to receive the Epic Champions of Renown.

    Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms | Download and Play for Free - Epic Games Store

    This offer is available to all new and existing players of Idle Champions, just visit the link above if interested, add to your account and remember to instal and play the game during the time period mentioned.

    Offer expires 4 pm BST Thursday 06 May 2021

    @Lily - Sunless Sea and more Sunless Sea. I'm on my fourth or fifth character. One of which retired gracefully, the rest have met a variety of sticky ends, usually as a result of pirate action and being sunk far from port.

    I have a feeling there is a lot more to this game than I have so far seen.

    Aww. Nuts. I tried playing those ages ago and got stumped and gave up on both of them. That might have inspired me to give them another shot.
