20XX, Barony And Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Free On Epic Games Store, Wilmot's Warehouse Next Week

by Rainier on July 30, 2020 @ 8:00 p.m. PDT

For the next week, the Epic Games Store is offering three titles for free: 20XX, Barony and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.

20XX

20XX is a co-op-friendly roguelike that plays like Mega Man X, where you explore procedurally generated levels, collect new weapons, abilities, purchase upgrades, and battle mighty bosses in the name of saving the human race maybe!

If you are a fan of roguelikes or Mega Man, 20XX is for you!

20XX is a game built to feel like Mega Man X, but with random levels, random powerups, permanent death, and multiplayer. The game uses a procedural level generation algorithm that pieces together levels from a certain number of mechanics at a time; it switches rapidly between playing like an action game and playing like a platformer, mixing precision jumping with fevered combat.

Add in permadeath and over 100 powerups to find in between agonizing deaths and you've got hours of nail-biting jumping-and-shooting goodness on your hands.

Once 20XX, Barony and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, the current free games on the Epic Games Store, have run their course, it will be up to Wilmot's Warehouse, which will be gratis starting August 6 until August 13, 2020.

Wilmot's Warehouse is a puzzle game about keeping a warehouse running in tip-top shape. Just remember where you put everything, because when the service hatch opens, you'll need to find the things people want quickly, to earn the coveted Performance Stars.

You play as Wilmot, a hard working warehouse employee tasked with pushing, sorting and stacking a variety of products. Over time more and more truckloads of products will arrive, gradually filling up the warehouse. How you arrange them is entirely up to you - organize by color, type, the Dewey Decimal System, or some wild format that only you understand - it’s all good! Just remember where you put everything, because when the service hatch opens, you'll need to find the things people want quickly, in order to earn the coveted Performance Stars required for all manner of labor-saving upgrades.

Features

  • Unique relaxing gameplay.
  • 500 possible products to stock.
  • All manner of upgrades and perks.
  • Splitscreen 2 player co-op: Work in tandem to organize the warehouse with a friend - Customise your game with Expert Mode for an extra challenge
  • Sublime electronic music to listen to while you decide whether wellington boots belong in the footwear section, or with the umbrellas.

Barony

Barony is a first-person roguelike with co-op. Cryptic items, brutal traps and devious monsters, like those found in classic roguelikes and CRPGs, await you. Conquer the dungeons alone, or gather a party in co-op with iconic and exotic RPG classes.

Get ready to tackle vicious roguelike dungeons in first-person. Barony is a blast alone, but it's a party when you bring your dungeon-running buddies with you in cooperative multiplayer.

Slay baddies, collect arcane treasures, invoke powerful spells, and tally up your death count on your way to defeating the forces of supernatural evil.

Barony is a love-note to RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall, created by fans of the classics.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

Traverse a mythic little realm, use a sword to do battle & evoke 'sworcery' to solve mystical musical mysteries.

Sword & Sworcery is an album-meets-adventure chronicling the woeful errand of The Scythian. In Sword & Sworcery, players will wander in the woods, solve strange puzzles & occasionally battle beasties as they seek to re-unite The Trigon Trifecta.

Experience a videogame world that is affected by moon phases & help a wandering warrior monk complete her woeful errand.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is set to an award-winning musical backdrop created by celebrated composer and wonderful human, Jim Guthrie.
