Epic Games Store free games: “Void Bastards” and “Yooka-Laylee”

Epic Games Store‘s latest freebies are Blue Manchu/Humble Bundle‘s roguelike sci-fi FPS Void Bastards and Playtonic Games/Team17 Digital Limited‘s 3D-platformer Yooka-Laylee.

Void Bastards was already discussed in this GOG release news and was part of the Amazon Prime Gaming free games in January 2021 line-up, bringing with it a cel-shaded graphics style and lots of humor.

One shouldn’t expect a big story or memorable characters, which is a surprise considering that staff from the classics System Shock 2 and Bioshock are involved. However, for some frenetic action with highly customizable and ridiculous weapons, it should be quite entertaining for short bursts of FPS fun.

Yooka-Laylee is another title that has been covered in this blog with a game release news and the Amazon Prime Gaming free games in December 2020 article, but it remains just as pretty to look at as when it came out.

Any game that evokes the classic platformer fun feeling of the 90ies should be recommended, and if it features lots of eccentric animals or even talking clouds in a beautiful world with excellent music and voice acting, it’s a no-brainer to play.

Both games can now be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until tomorrow, August 26, 2021, at 5:00 PM.
