Epic Games Store: Free Games – 28th October 2021

Darq: Complete Edition

I’m a bit late to the party with this post, so I’m going to make it as quick as possible. Darq is a really cool looking puzzle game with a surprisingly unnerving art style. It reminds me of games like Little Nightmares, and that definitely isn’t a bad thing. But unlike that game with its more stealthy focus, Darq is more about puzzle solving. I don’t know how scary it is, or whether the scares are psychological or just jump scares, but it looks pretty cool. If you’re looking for something to play for Halloween then this looks like it could be a good choice. It won a bunch of awards, so I guess you can’t go too far wrong.

The fact it’s the “Complete Edition” seems like a little bit of a weird statement. There is definitely DLC available for the base game, but it’s all free. So releasing it all as a special edition reeks of marketing to me. But either way, it’s up for grabs now.
