Epic Games Store: what's free right now

(Image credit: Unfold Games)

October 28 – November 4, 2021: DARQ: Complete Edition

This week's freebie is another spooky one for the very end of October. It's a horror puzzle game about a man named Lloyd who has gotten trapped in his own lucid dream. You'll use a combination of stealth and puzzling to escape from his nightmare side-scrolling world.

“Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies,” says Unfold Games. “He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.”
