Epic Games: Turn-based RPG for free
“Spelldrifter,” a free role-playing game, is waiting for all genre fans in the Epic Games Store this week. The title mixes turn-based combat with elements of a trading card game. First, a group of heroes is created, then the deck is put together. The party then has to find the entrance to a mysterious labyrinth and advance into the heart of Starfall. The interesting mix of genres is largely well received by fans. Since the download, which normally costs 16 euros, is now free, there is nothing wrong with a trial round.
“The Riflemen,” which has just been released on Steam, has already built up a fan base in just a few days. In the multiplayer shooter, two teams of five players each compete against each other. The World War II setting ensures that all participants only have repeating rifles and knives at their disposal. There is no need to reload and headshots are fatal. However, shotguns, sniper rifles or bazookas can also be unlocked for a short period of time via supply packages. In addition to Team Deathmatch, “The Riflemen” also offers Domination as a game mode. The low-poly style presentation may not be for everyone, but the gameplay seems to be fun.
The “Sim Companies” currently published on Steam is a business MMO in which all participants have to find the best strategy for their companies. Are investments in production, sales or research most worthwhile? Who finds the best business models and can prevail against the competition? Real-world principles play a big role here. Risk-taking actions are often rewarded. Each participant receives starting capital and must make the best possible use of their resources in two days. The path to success is rarely linear, but always requires the current market situation to be taken into account in the game.
With “The Lancaster Leak”, two episodes of the horror game are already available for free download on Steam. The player has to solve the puzzles from leaked videos: In the first part, “O’Brien State Park”, a missing person case from 1985 has to be solved. In the sequel, “Crisis At Call Center,” the disappearance of FBI intern Valerie Bardot is supposed to be solved. The player sees what is happening from the perspective of several surveillance cameras, can access hacked computers and eavesdrop on telephone conversations. Both episodes are around 30 minutes long and rely on shocking moments. So not for the faint of heart!
