Epic Games Store gives away some pre-Christmas gifts with graphic novel adventure game The Wolf Among Us and prison simulator/strategy game The Escapists.
It’s time again to use that Epic Games launcher again, as two great games will be available for free until December 19, 2020. I’ve already covered The Wolf Among Us in this review and it comes highly recommended due to its great art style and suspenseful storyline that mixes film noir with fairy-tales and folklore, starring the Big Bad Wolf as a private investigator. True to its source material, it’s a rather dark and often violent game that mixes adventure elements with QTEs, showing that the Telltale Games development/publisher team knew what to do with its licences (and apparently it’s back again, as I found out today with this Season 2 trailer of the game?). The Escapists needs no introduction, either, as it has spawned quite a few spin-offs and DLCs. Despite not having had the chance to play/review it, I’ve heard so many good things about this mix of strategy and prison simulation game that it’s a no brainer to get it now for free.
