Epic Games Store: Free Games – 8th July 2021

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead

Carl! For what it’s worth, I like the Bridge Constructor games. They know what they are and they lean heavily into just doing that. I guess what I like about them is that while there is usually a “perfect” solution for each obstacle, you can very often get around it with ghetto solutions. And if you know me, you know that I love a ghetto solution to an in-game problem. Does the Walking Dead variation change the bridge building process? Probably not. Is a horde of zombies that different from a big truck? I doubt it. But I’ll play it anyway. CARL!


I was today years old when I learned that Ironcast existed; I’d never heard of it before. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing. A match 3 game with RPG elements that drives a story along? I absolutely loved You Must Build a Boat on mobile so I reckon I’ll like this too. Unfortunately I’m not likely to play it on PC the way I would on my phone, so that’s a bit of a disappointment. But for people who get more time with their machines than me, this could be a good time!
