Epic Games Store: Free Games – 22nd October 2020
Costume Quest 2
Costume Quest 2 is an RPG with some comedy elements and a fairly casual take on the genre. It’s by Double Fine, so you should know what to expect by now. It’s on brand for the autumnal Halloween season, but the game is also 6 years old and sits in the mid-60s on Metacritic. It might be okay for younger kids to play this one (I don’t know if there’s any “mature” humour in there so take this with a pinch of salt) but I can’t see it being a game that was ever in high demand on EGS.
Layers of Fear 2
I really enjoyed the original Layers of Fear, even though The Internet doesn’t necessarily agree with me. It had some great moments of unease and a couple of good scares. Thankfully it didn’t rely on many jump scares, which is great because I can’t really be bothered with those. So if Layers of Fear 2 follows the same style I’ll be a happy man. Looking forward to giving it a try this Halloween!
