Each week, the Epic Games Store offers its users a number of free titles. This week, the storefront is getting into the spirit of Halloween, as the Horror Classic Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, is free to purchase and download. Alongside this, players can also get their hands on the strategy survival game Kingdom New Lands.
Developed by The Chinese Room, known for Dear Esther and Everyone’s Gone to the Rapture, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an indirect sequel to the much-loved Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Similar to its predecessor, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is a first-person survival horror game which “will drag you to the depths of greed, power and madness.”
Though the game received a more luke-warm reception upon its release when compared to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, A Machine for Pigs was still complimented for its atmosphere and story – and is perfectly suited for this time of year.
Kingdom New Lands is a “minimalistic micro strategy game with modern retro aesthetics and an ambient soundtrack,” where “players take control of a monarch struggling to build their kingdom from nothing by exploring the world, recruit loyal subjects and defend from the nightly Greed attacks.”
With its attractive art style and somewhat unique gameplay loop, Kingdom New Lands is worth giving a go – even if it’s only for the game’s haunting soundtrack.
Both Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Kingdom New Lands are available to purchase for free from now until the 22nd of October.
