Epic Games Store: Free Games – 29th April 2021

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms has the longest and most clunky name I’ve seen for a while. But that aside, it falls into the idle clicker subgenre, where you need to place units in appropriate places for them to fight the enemies for you. It’s not a style of game that I really have much affinity with, because I prefer to be in direct control of my units, but it’s a popular genre so I’ll admit I’m in the minority here!

The closest I got to enjoying that style of game was Despot’s Game, which I thought was actually pretty good when I played it on stream. So maybe I just need to find the right one.

That said, it’s already free on both Steam and EGS, so I’m not sure how it being marked as “free” this week is a thing. It has some paid DLC though, so I’m wondering if maybe all of that content is going to be included when it drops.
