'Hell is Other Demons' and 'Overcooked! 2' Free On Epic Games Store, 'Horizon Chase Turbo' and 'Sonic Mania' Next Week

by Rainier on June 17, 2021 @ 9:03 a.m. PDT

For the next week, the Epic Games Store is offering two titles for free: Hell is Other Demons and Overcooked! 2.

Overcooked! 2

Overcooked! 2 is a chaotic co-op cooking game for 1-4 players in which you must serve a variety of recipes including sushi, pasta, cakes, burgers and burritos to hungry customers in a series of unconventional kitchens.

The Onion Kingdom is in peril again and this time it is the fault of the Onion King himself! Reading aloud from the fabled Necronomnomicon, he has cooked up a real problem in the form of a doughy but dangerous army of UNDEAD BREAD called…The Unbread! The Onion King needs you, so chop, fry and bake your way through an all new series of crazy kitchens to defeat them and save the kingdom.

Overcooked! 2 is a chaotic co-op cooking game for 1-4 players in which you must serve a variety of recipes including sushi, pasta, cakes, burgers and burritos to hungry customers in a series of unconventional kitchens. Whether it be a hot air balloon, a magical Wizard’s school or even another planet, you’ll have to be bready for anything. Work solo or with up to three friends to prep orders while overcoming obstacles such as fire, collapsing floors, overbearing waiters and of course, the classic kitchen problem of floating work surfaces.

Once Hell is Other Demons and Overcooked! 2, the current free game on the Epic Games Store, have run their course, it will be up to Horizon Chase Turbo and Sonic Mania, which will be gratis starting June 24 until July 1, 2021.

Horizon Chase Turbo

Horizon Chase Turbo is a homage to classic 16-bit racers that defined a generation of high-speed, frenetic arcade fun.

Horizon Chase Turbo is a pedal-to-the-metal arcade racer inspired by the trailblazing 90s-era classics.

Horizon Chase Turbo delivers neck-break speed, original gameplay, tight controls, new features and content designed specifically to highlight the nostalgic feel of classic racers on next-generation technology.

The game marks a resurgence of couch co-op, where up to four players can compete in multiplayer campaigns, intense tournaments and endurance trials as they race around the globe.

Although there’s a deep and extensive single-player mode, Horizon Chase Turbo uses split-screen multiplayer modes to create a magical local multiplayer experience.

Aside from the modernly retro graphics, the split-screen couch multiplayer modes are among Turbo’s most defining features. All game modes, including the World Tour campaign, tournament and endurance challenges support local split screen multiplayer up to four players. Racers can compete in head-to-head races one at a time, or spend hours racing around the globe collecting coins to achieve the common goal of unlocking exotic vehicles and spinetingling tracks.

Sonic Mania

Sonic Mania brings fans back into the 2D world of platform games with nostalgic pixel-style art and core classic gameplay by reimagining iconic Zones and Acts from Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD and Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles.

You’re not dreaming. Since the 90’s, Sonic has advanced from the 2D world into 3D, and has crossed multiple platforms along the way. But what would have happened if Sonic had continued his 2D glory after Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles? The world is about to find out.

Before you get too lost in nostalgia of the 1990s, the game is also adding completely new Zones with all-new Acts and bosses into the mix.

Sonic Mania is a brand new Sonic the hedgehog title that takes the classic Sonic experience and adds new elements and exciting surprises. Players will be able to choose between playing Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles to defeat bosses and enemies. Harness Sonic’s new Drop Dash, Tails’ flight, and Knuckles’ climbing abilities to overcome evil Dr. Eggman and his henchmen. Discover a myriad of never-before-seen hidden paths and secrets!

This all-new experience celebrates the best of Classic Sonic and features stunning 60 FPS gameplay and pixel-perfect physics.

Hell is Other Demons

Hell is Other Demons is an action-platform shooter, with Roguelite elements. Explore a sprawling, hand-crafted world full of demons, insanely over-the-top boss fights, and a heavy synthwave soundtrack.

You grew up with the bullet hell arcade shooters which rewarded fast-decision making and creativity? Hell is Other Demons is crafted with expertly executed mechanics and bold, unforgettable style.
