'Supraland' Free On Epic Games Store, 'A Game Of Thrones: The Board Game' And 'Car Mechanic Simulator 2018' Next Week

by Rainier on June 16, 2022 @ 8:28 a.m. PDT

For the next week, the Epic Games Store is offering one title for free: Supraland.

Supraland is a first-person metroidvania, inspired by classics such as Metroid, Portal, Mario and Zelda, mixing exploration, puzzle and fighting.

In Supraland you explore a large interconnected world in which most ways are at first unpassable until you find new abilities to overcome those obstacles. A cornerstone of Supraland's design was to create abilities that are so versatile, they will keep on surprising you by how many different usages they have. If you combine your abilities, the possibilities become even bigger.

Most of the game is about exploring the sandbox world to track down secrets. Often you will think you are about to get out of bounds and beat the level designer, but right there is a chest waiting for you with a very rewarding upgrade. Supraland respects your lifetime and doesn't bloat the playtime with unlimited no-brainer collectibles.

The deeper you get into the game the more you will be facing creative puzzles you've never seen anywhere before, encouraging you to stop and think about what abilities you have and how you can use them in yet another way. Puzzle types that I already knew from other games were immediately rejected in the design process. And it's important to me that once you understand the idea behind a puzzle, you can pretty much immediately solve it instead of having to go through a cumbersome, frustrating execution.

The fighting mechanics are inspired by old-school, fast-paced shooter games like Unreal, Doom and Quake, encouraging high-speed strafing and jumping while throwing shot after shot at hordes of charging enemies without ever having to worry about weapons reloading.

Once Supraland, the current free game on the Epic Games Store, has runs its course, it will be up to A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Digital Edition and Car Mechanic Simulator 2018, which will be gratis starting June 23 until June 30, 2022.

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Digital Edition

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Digital Edition is the digital adaptation of the top-selling strategy board game from Fantasy Flight Games.

During the game, players spread their influence across Westeros through a combination of strategic planning, masterful diplomacy, and military might. As one of the Great Houses, will you conquer with force, forge alliances, rally your townsfolk, or cunningly coerce your way to the Iron Throne?

Based on the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game – Digital Edition allows up to six players to play online, or a single player with up to five AI opponents to play locally. The game is set after the death of King Robert Baratheon and allows each player to assume the role of one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms in an attempt to assault King’s Landing and claim the Iron Throne.

To be declared ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, you have 10 rounds to use diplomacy and warfare to your advantage to control as many strategic areas of the map.
Conquer with care as your resources are scarce and your troops are not expendable. Muster your army, plan your orders wisely and seize strategical lands with your Footmen, Knights, Siege Engine and ships.
During the turmoil of a battle, use well-known characters from your house to take the upper hand and vanquish your enemies.

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game – Digital Edition is a game of negotiation and deception. Each round, you secretly assign one order token to each of your armies: promise support, offer peace, forge alliances, betray a vulnerable ally - a House that dares set its eyes on the Iron Throne must turn many wheels within wheels to achieve its ends.

Move up the three influence tracks by betting your hard-earned power tokens. Obtain the Iron Throne, the Messenger Raven and the Valyrian steel tokens, each granting you strategic and social gameplay advantages to hold sway over rival houses.

However, keep an eye beyond the Wall as an army of barbaric wildlings gather to descend upon the continent! All houses must cooperate to gather enough power tokens to reinforce the Night’s Watch and fend off the wildlings, or the consequences could be devastating…
