Epic Games Store: Free Games – 15th July 2021
Offworld Trading Company
Offworld Trading Company is a game that really interested me when it first came out. A RTS where instead of direct combat you’re fighting with finances. It seemed really cool, but something put me off actually buying it. Probably because these games are always better with friends rather than against the AI. But when a game is free there’s absolutely no reason not to give it a shot!
That said, OTC was previously given away near the start of 2020, so this is not a new giveaway. I just missed it last time!
Obduction makes a big deal of letting you know that it’s from the creators of Myst, one of the old (classic) adventure games with pre-rendered scenes and puzzles to solve. I never got into it, but I think I was too young for the style of puzzles at the time. It’s a well-respected game though, and there must be a reason for that. But rather than go back and play an old game I’d definitely much rather play something new.
