Epic Games Store free games: “Amnesia: Rebirth” and “Riverbond”

Epic Games Store‘s new and very different free games are Frictional Games‘ first-person survival horror Amnesia: Rebirth and Cococucumber‘s hack-and-slash dungeon crawler Riverbond.

Amnesia: Rebirth is a title that I kind of missed on its release and only rediscovered when writing about the GOG midweek sale: “Scary horror games”. After the reviews for Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, this is all the weirder, as I really enjoyed those, especially the first one.

The third game goes in a different direction than its Gothic horror predecessors, as it takes place in the desert of Algeria where young woman Tasi Trianon survives a plane crash, but might not survive the terror that awaits her below the dunes.

Riverbond sets itself apart from other dungeon crawlers not only because of its lack of dark colors, but because it’s more like a couch co-op game for 1-4 players in which one battles small and bigger baddies in a voxel world.

Of course it’s all hectic and silly fun if one plays together and destroys various enemies as well as the environments while one digs deeper into the depths of Riverbond to see what’s at the bottom.

Both games can now be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until April 28, 2022, at 5:00 PM.
