Epic Games Store free games: “Deponia: The Complete Journey” + “Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth” + “The First Tree”

Epic Games Store offers its users three (or rather five) freebies to grab this week: Daedalic Entertainment‘s adventure games Deponia: The Complete Journey, Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth, and David Wehle‘s exploration title The First Tree.

Deponia: The Complete Journey comprises Deponia, Chaos on Deponia, and Goodbye Deponia, all of which I’ve already reviewed (see the articles for the first, the second, and the third game), so I won’t go much further than this, only that it’s a divisive trilogy of point-and-clickers due to the main character, the tasteless humor and obscure puzzles.

The fourth game, Deponia Doomsday, I also reviewed, but it’s not included in the compilation, probably because it’s a rather strange alternative non-sequel.

Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth is an episodic game based on the author’s bestseller, and it’s quite a departure for Daedalic because of its decision-making gameplay and historical drama genre, in contrast to the more cartoon-y titles they’ve done so far.

I briefly covered the game in the PC game “The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav” free with GOG pre-order of “Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth” article.

The First Tree is quite a different proposition, but all the more beautiful, telling the story of a fox trying to find her missing family and a young man trying to reconnect with his father in Alaska.

By taking on the journey with the animal, one discovers more about the son’s life, making this another great example of what a single developer can do.

All games can be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until April 22, 2021, at 5:00 PM.
