Hell Is Other Demons and Overcooked 2 are free on the Epic Games Store from 17th June 2021! Here’s what I think about that.
Here are the games currently free of charge on the Epic Games Store. These are typically only around for a week, so if you see anything you like the look of you’d better move fast before they disappear!
Epic Games Store: Free Games – 17th June 2021
Hell is Other Demons
Hell is Other Demons is an action platformer roguelike (ugh) bullet hell shooter, which ticks a lot of boxes for me. It has a super cute pixel art style that makes me think of Downwell, which is never a bad thing. It’s the kind of art style that can make my eyes hurt after long play periods, but if the game itself is fun you can usually get past that!
I really wish I had more friends who wanted to play games like Overcooked. The chaotic style of play, where you’re supposed to be helping each other but actually end up getting in each others way, is hilarious. That is streaming gold, if you ask me. In gameplay terms, you’re working together to create meals for customers. You have timers to wait for and environmental hazards to deal with, but the worst part is always that you inevitably end up just falling over each other. Unfortunately I can hardly ever get people to join me for this stuff. Maybe with Overcooked 2 being free I can try to work on them some more. We’ll see.
