Epic Games Store: Free Games – 25th March 2021

Creature in the Well

Creature in the Well is an interesting one! It’s a combination of action RPG, dungeon crawler and pinball. Sounds super weird, but also exactly the kind of thing that could turn out to be amazing. I know literally nothing more than that first sentence, but I will absolutely be jumping on this game when it comes to the Epic Games Store. The art style is cool, with a kind of low-fi cel-shaded thing going on. But it’s the mix of gameplay styles that really interests me.

What’s even more strange is that the developers haven’t really done anything else. Creature in the Well came out in 2019, which is long enough ago that you’d expect a new game to be on the way by now. Reviews are pretty middling though (82 on Metacritic is pretty good, but only 74% positive on Steam), so maybe there’s something that the promo stuff doesn’t show. Either way, the best time to try a game you’re not sure about is when it’s free!
