Today’s free game in the 15 Days of Free Games is Darkest Dungeon. You can find out if it’s worth picking up right here!
This year for Christmas, Epic is doing 15 days of free games, with each title only being available for 24 hours. Here’s today’s offering as well as what I think about it!
Epic Games Store: 15 Days of Free Games – 25th December 2020
Darkest Dungeon is a great game, no doubt. It’s a procedurally-generated dungeon crawler RPG with turn-based battles. It’s also about being ruthless. It’s about being callus and selfish. In order to do well in it, you need to put your own need to progress above the needs of your allies. To progress, you need to put your units through hell – mentally and physically.
Which makes it a totally baller move to have this as a giveaway on Christmas Day. The time of year traditionally associated with giving and selflessness? Hell no. Get back into that dark, scary dungeon, minion! I’m assuming this was a deliberate decision by Epic Games, because it is absolutely hilarious.
It doesn’t say nice things about the rest of us (or capitalism, if you really want to dig into it), but it gets you an awesome game for free. So maybe that’s really the message of Christmas after all.
But probably not. Merry Christmas!
Here’s the link to my 15 Days of Free Games hub post for the full list!
