Hello PC gamers, it’s Thursday once again. Epic Games had a tumultuous week with its fight against Apple and Android over Fortnite. The good news is there are still games from the Epic Games store. Last week, it was about exploration. This week, it’s about fighting demons and monsters, so it’s getting straight to the action. Here are the two games that are available for free this week:
God’s Trigger is bird’s-eye-view, over-the-top RPG-like action game. You can play as either Harry the Angel or Judy the Demon by switching (Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate style) or as co-op. In this game you have to inflict as much violence toward your enemies as possible to gain experience points and power-ups. Your enemies are the Four Horsemen (or Horsebeings, whatever) of the Apocalypse: Death, War, Famine, and Pestilence, each with their unique personalities and attack styles. Very bloody. Rated M.
Enter the Gungeon is a semi-bird’s-eye-view over-the-top shooter in the tradition of Smash TV. Either as a single-player or co-op, you fight enemies in the Gungeon called the Gundead. Your primary objective is to obtain “a gun that can kill the past”. You will also find loot, discover hidden secrets, and have chats with “opportunistic merchants”. With those, you fight Gungeon bosses that are “armed to the teeth”. Some parts of the game are blended with 8-bit sprites, giving this game a retro feel. Rated T.
Fighting demons and monsters can be either serious or lighthearted. If you’re more into over-the-top bloody violence, then God’s Trigger is for you. But if you’re a bit too squeamish and prefer some lighthearted, classic-style gaming, then Enter the Gungeon is right for you. Either way, both games are free this week, so why not grab them both?
Happy demon hunting!
