The Fall is free right now on the Epic Games Store


Next week’s freebie is Creature in the Well

For this week’s giveaway, the Epic Games Store is handing out The Fall, a sci-fi adventure game about an advanced AI that has taken control of a combat suit after its pilot crash lands on an alien planet.

It’s an older release – the original PC version of The Fall launched in May 2014 – but it is still remembered for its story and atmosphere. Even if the “side-scrolling shooter” screenshots put you off a bit from the puzzle-adventuring, it’s worth a look. Doubly so when we’re talking about a free promo.

If you’re intrigued, we’ve got a review in the archives. The deal lasts until March 25.

I’ll also need to set a reminder for Creature in the Well next week. The pinball-esque dungeon-crawler has been on my mind ever since I heard about Flight School Studio’s next project, Stonefly, and I feel like I ought to play it. The inventive action game will be free on the Epic Store from March 25 to April 1.
