Get Subnautica Free on the Epic Games Store

Epic Games, creators of the extremely popular game Fortnight, have recently made a big splash in the gaming market by announcing their new digital PC Storefront.  This is basically their answer to Steam, GOG, Origin and other similar launchers.  As part of the new launch, they also have announced that they will have a free game every two weeks for 2019. The first of their free titles is Subnautica.

Subnautica is an open world survival style game set underwater.  Players gather materials to live and build things while fighting off under sea creatures.  Like I said, I’ve looked at buying it a few times, it looks pretty interesting and I’ve heard good things about it.

The first game is Subnautica, available from 12/14 through 12/27.  It’s not clear if you get the game permanently or if it’s just free during this period.  Either way, I’m looking forward to it since I’ve been looking at buying Subnautica for a while now.

On the keep or not keep aspects.  I imagine Epic realizes that one of the ways to make sure their store successful is to make sure players have a library of games to play.  Otherwise it just becomes an inconvenient necessity for launching the occasional exclusive title.  Does the world need another digital storefront?  That verdict is out and probably a better discussion for another day but personally, Steam has felt a little bloated for a while now, so alternative options aren’t really a bad thing.

Get LEGO The Hobbit Free on The Humble Store

Tis the season for giving I guess.  For the next couple of days, Humble Bundle is giving away LEGO The Hobbit on their site for free. 

The LEGO titles are a little formulaic in their gameplay but they tend to be pretty fun games, especially if you can get someone to play Co-Op with.  The LEGO Hobbit game isn’t quite a complete game unfortunately, they never added the DLC for the 3rd film, so I suppose it’s more of a Hobbit sized game than a full sized game. 

You can find the page to pick it up here, before December 15th.  It’s a Steam code that must be redeemed by the 20th.

Get Full Throttle Remastered Free on (and more)

Full Throttle is a pretty old game, originally released in 1995, and remastered for modern systems in 2005.  It was originally released by LucasArts, back when LucasArts was a pretty awesome game company.

For the next 48 hours it’s free on GoG on their home page, you can find it by clicking here.

GoG also is kicking off their winter holiday sale, your first purshase gets a free cops of Fantasy General, and spending $15 gets a copy of Everspace,  a Roguelike Space Combat game.

There is also a new selection of GoG Connect titles available, to sync over from your steam library.  The list includes:

  • Trine Enchanted Edition
  • I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Age of Wonders 3
  • Shadowrun Hong Kong – Extended Edition
  • Shadowrun Returns
  • Shadowrun: Dragonfall – Director’s Cut

Though to qualify for those you have to already own them on Steam.
