Each week, the Epic Games Store offers users of its platform a number of free games to download and keep forever. Though this week only sees one small title on offer, the following week will bring with it 3 titles, including Killing Floor 2. Until then, users of the store can get their hands on the puzzle-platformer ‘Hue’.
Hue is described as “a vibrant, award-winning puzzle-adventure, where you alter the world by changing its background colour,” as “you explore a dangerous grey land, unearthing coloured fragments on a journey to find your missing mother.”
The game features a truly unique aesthetic, where the silhouetted backgrounds lay in stark contrast to the bright colours that you can control and “as obstacles match the background, they disappear, creating new and exciting puzzles – full of peril, mystery… and colours unseen.”
Hue is available to purchase and download for free from now until the 9th of July at 4pm, at which point it will be replaced by ‘Lifeless Planet’ – a third person action adventure featuring “an old-school sci-fi story and spectacular environments”; the Escapists 2 – the sequel to the much-loved strategy prison-escape title; and Killing Floor 2 – the first-person co-op zombie shooter. Hue replaces last week’s offerings of Stranger Things 3: The Game and AER: Memories of Old.
