Tharsis is a game about being in space and rolling dice to fix equipment on your ship that's breaking or under threat of some disaster.

Since it's rolling dice... success or failure might just be down to luck. That's not really my thing, even if there are a number of elements meant to add to that mechanic (such as the special abilities crew members possess), or the abilities of different modules.

Speed Brawl is a platforming brawler about defeating enemies as quickly as possible. There's a lot of little things to consider, from status effects to the use of assists and tag-ins to the fact that moving faster means you inflict more damage. I haven't played much of it yet, but what I have played seems pretty nice so far.

I found Tharsis was also not really optimized computer performance wise.

The weekly freebie on the epic store was supposed to be a colony building and survival game, Aven Colony, seemed interesting.
But for reason unknown they decided to remove it and put this week freebie ... The Escapists ... again, oh well. Though maybe some people will not be as disapointed as i was in how limited the escapists is in comparison to what i had read about it before play.

Next week, it should be Europa Universalis 4, hopefully.

Hm... Epic doesn't even sell Aven Colony. I wonder what went wrong...

Interesting a mix of the HoMM systems but with real time battles, i gave the free version a try and had some fun in the tutorial map (haven't tried a random map or skimirsh yet).

Though the real time fights can become a giant mess when your hero is fighting an AI hero, as both side have then lots of troops, spawning big blobs of units that mix together.
I'm not fan of the "8bits pixel" style , HoMM 2&3 sprites were much better for this kind of game to me. But other than that, it's very good.

While I appreciate what you are doing, this thread is about actually free games. Let's keep the thread on track, shall we?

Epic games are free to keep forever, not promotional demos.

Sure, they're free to keep. But they're not free when the offer (which is a promotional offer, by the way, of Epic's) is over. And this is a thread for free games.

Now, I could accept an argument that despite not being free games, Epic's promotional give-aways would still be of interest to people of this thread. I would also argue that, despite not being free to keep, games with limited time access for free would also be of similar interest to people of this thread, and that there's not really any harm in posting about them here.

I don't mind demos/limited free weekends all that much, but that's because there aren't that many in the thread. Excluding them seems like a good idea.

Epic giveaways, OTOH? No. They fit the criteria of many of the older posts in the thread - indeed, the main reason I keep up-to-date on the thread is to find out about storefronts doing promotional giveaways. Those feel absolutely in the spirit of the thread, and have been a mainstay for a very long time. I personally don't have anything to do with Epic, for a combination of stubborn/inconsistent ideological reason, and the simple acknowledgement that I really don't need more games so restricting a very prolific giver-away helps limit my digital hoarding, but Epic giveaways fit right in. The best argument against them I can see is that they always have a giveaway going, and you can thus reliably check on their storefront if you're interested in them, but while that feels like a reasonable argument, it doesn't feel like a compelling one.
